Doh! The franconian guy is back: I spent some days away working, having some fun drinking brew (Anna Fest 2011) but this thread is living so fast that i've to reread first about 20 pages.
Thanks to the two icehockey fans overseas for adding me to their friendlist
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
I've to make some proposal: Is it please possible for those of you having problems, to begin your reply with a PROBLEM ABC in large letters and also in bold font maybe? Please replace ABC with the issue word e.g. BOOT TIME/BIOS/OLD OS/SOUND/.... So it's much easier to give you some help. I've read some posts begging for assistance but it's now a problem for me to refind them...although i'm using nowadays browser tabbing.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
I'm upgrading my BIOS asap and doing afterwards some time counting while the system boots and also some benchmarks with measuring fan speeds and temperature.
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Yeah, sintricate! Welcome to the CPU heatsink NH-D14 monster club!
I'm curios: Are you using the ULNA or LNA adapter with the noctua fans?
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
I hope our best wishes to this neat guy near chicago loosing his fight against wind powers have made his way finally and gets his GENEZ also?

I think AHCI actually lets your HDD run faster than it would if it was in IDE mode.

Hey guys!

Here are the pics i promised! I finally got my rig up and running and i have the following comments:

* I could not align the CM Megaflow on the black grommets so i used zip ties and called it a day.
* It is a PAIN to install the liquid cooler unit and always with the fear of breaking something OVER my VGA Card.
* I can tell that the GTX 590 KICKS ASS big time. It is (IMO) just absolutely the best graphics experience i`ve ever had.
* I have another fan that i will use to complete the push/pull cycle in the radiator of the liquid cooler but unfortunately i do not have the damn screws that attach the fan to the radiator.
* I just need some SSD to make this rig really take off.

In order to make this rig i had to sell every single console i owned (PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii) and also my beloved Alienware M11x, but at the end of the day i can tell you that... IT WAS WORTH IT!

Also, another side note, the morons at NZXT forgot to add the screws for the handle for the Vulcan case so i asked them to give me the measures of the screws (so that i could get some replacements in a hardware store), but the told me "dont worry, we will send you a replacement for free" so i said cool and waited for them but then i received the package and guess what, the idiots shipped to me every single screw for the case again EXCEPT for the ones for te handle.

And finally, I added the pictures of my baby since i thought it was funny! (he is three months old!, i think that he will grow to be a geek like his dad! (poor kiddo...)







Thanks!
