Originally when I was reading reviews of the V354 which I bought, it had a feed through to rear i/o for usb 3.0. The case I received from Newegg has internal headers for it though. I think any new Lian-Li that you buy that is advertised for usb 3.0 will have internal connections. Food for thought.

Too carried away? You're thinkin' about this stuff, aren't you? Seriously, too bad about the fit on that card - you had a great deal!

I looked seriously at the 600T in black, but it didn't come with the same door, as I recall. Still I like it, but in the end, it is too big for me. It is well built and so I can appreciate the appeal it has for many.

The USB 3.0 connector is a great find, thanks for that one! You are becoming quite the "product research dude" on this board. Thanks for the ideas!

I guess I'll go for a 580 or 560ti IF I can find an OPEN BOX one on NewEgg, or maybe a 6950 or 6970 ? the OPEN BOX stuff is so hit and miss it's kinda just get your fingers moving and hope you get it before it's gone.

And the Corsair Case ... it comes in Black/Graphite
... the WHITE one is a Special/Edition color.


How about get one of these ... http://lian-li.com/v2/en/product/pro...0&ss_index=131

Exactly ... IF I'm going to get a BIG case ... then what's the point (aside from $$$) of a mATX board !

Thanks for the compliment I got too much Free time I suppose ? ... as such, the 600T Graphite/Black can be had with the same Door as the WHITE one ... either the Plexi Window or the mesh side panel (both are included if you buy one). http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811139007
/or

... or this guy did a full plexi side panel mod

I dont like the 600T much at all with a dual card setup i had it was really really hot inside the case, i tested it with 2 6970 and 2 580 and it just seems like a hype case imo. Replaced with gentle typhoons as well, for me Lian li and silverstone provided better temps and looks.

Sold it off within a week...

Reset to factory defaults then only change CPU Level Up to 4.2 (or 4.6) and see how it works.

Will have to check my packaging when I get back home. I didn't find headers and had to use the rear i/o. I'm surprised because they did not have my case in stock so was about sure to get a recent package.

It was in the white box? Got a picture?

Ok, so I am having a weird issue. I was having problems with my system locking up. Thought it was the SSD and so I swapped it out for a spare I had. After doing some benching I am now getting lockups again. I felt the SB heatsink and it was pretty hot, which kinda surprised me since it is just the SB. Any thoughts on this? I know it's not the GPU's since I have had the issue with two different GPU setups. I don't think it's the SSD since I am having the issue on two different SSD's. I haven't tried changing out the memory, that will be my next step, but I am surprised as it seems to do fine for awhile and then just goes to crap. Ram is the 4Gb ram module Snipers at 1.25v and they do not even get warm. My VRM's on the MB get warm, but not hot. I have tried adjusting voltages on the CPU and that doesn't change anything. Any thought would be appreciated.
Thanks.

there is nothing special about this card .. instead the EVGA sb may pick any other brand reference design card and get the same.
Read their official page again There is a pretty big box about the differences...

If you use that Lian-Li USB3.0 adapter on this board, it'll block the top PCIe 16x slot (in that you won't be able to use a long video card in that slot). You need this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811996037


Bought one of these and the part that connects to the header is small enough that it won't block the top PCIe 16x slot from being used.
