quote VeGiTAX2Spent an hour playing cable ninja. Ended up with this for now.
Side fan throwing up air is a 250mm Antec tri-color on random mode so it makes a variety of cool colors.
Lighting is done via BitFenix LED aqua strip. It is pretty friggin bright too. That was the backlight for the LCD I was working on. Was being the keyword, the IC that connects to the LCD panel fried on me so it's dead project unless I replace that board and the ribbons to the panel itself. >_<
quote hbnI've heard good things about those noctua coolers, but personally, I opted for an H100 with my build, and I've been really happy with it. I also replaced the stock corsair fans with noctuas.Gonna start compiling a parts list for my next build. It is time for an upgrade. I've decided on Intel/Nvidia. I'm unsure whether or not to get a new case for mine. One I like the look of though, has no 5.25" bay, which given how I still use discs, it is a necessity. I'd have to either change that or find an external bluray drive. I could stick with the case I have but it'd be easier to build a new one from scratch. I'm moving storage across. Likewise I'm aware new Intel CPUs don't have stock coolers any more. Unsure here whether or not to get another fan cooler (from Noctua) or go for a hydro one (probably a H100i).
quoteif the processor won't support any higher, it's not worth going beyond what it can do. in my experience, though, I've honestly never noticed massive differences in the various RAM speeds that are currently available. benchmarks would probably say differently, but I can't detect in in real-world use.Speaking of which, regards RAM, is it worth getting a higher speed than the CPU officially supports? I'd have to manually set the speeds back up to stock but will the processor play ball? I'd probably have to get a new copy of Windows as well.
quote Supernova1332What board is it?Seems a bit dead in this thread but anywho...
I just picked up a cheap mobo, an fx 8300, and a Captain 120 AIO cooler as a quick stopgap until zen comes out.
Im overclocking and started to notice my mosfets heating up nicely. Anyone know the recommended heat range?
