Thanx for your very nice collection of driverlinks in installation order!
The Intel PROSet V16.4 is running much better on my sytem than the older version from ASUS website.

I personally don't like Lucid Logix and ASUS AI for digging non needed drivers deep into my system.

Yes, here are some screenshots of a friend of mine, a GENE Z inside a Bitfenix Colossus Case with a bequiet Dark Rock Pro heatsink, a lot of space for e.g. watercooling devices or some sort of hideout left.

Welcome - and thx for the pictures too.

@rysiu342

you need to modify your backplate like this:



or get this accessory item:

Ironage, to modify because of the foam that is there?
Sorry but that is not necessary. Last time I checked foam isn't conductive >.>
Atleast I don't have ANY problems while I have my Antec 620 backplate's foam on top of those things.

those blocks will be available in the shop within about two weeks.

the pictures been taken by one of the developers.

@lagittaja

I would not put too much pressure on SMD parts ... they might crack.

Hi again guys, hopefully going to be buying the majority of this lot on Friday, so being the ridiculously over cautious pleb that I am I'd thought I'd repost my, now revised, components list in-case anyone notices any daft mistakes I may have made...

Case: Silverstone GD05B (fits on my AV stand and won't look out of place)

CPU: i5 - 2500k (good performance/money ratio, overclockable)

CPU cooler: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 (Fits nicely in the case, recommended to me in this thread)

Mobo: Asus Maximus IV GENE-Z Intel Z68 (but of course)

PSU: Corsair CMPSU-850AX (AX was recommended in this thread, uhm'd and ahh'd for a bit as the price jump from HX650 to AX750 was steep, but after going on excellent feedback I followed advice. Price difference between 750 and 850 AX wasn't much so figured I'd 'future-proof')

GPU: Asus 1GB GeForce GTX 560TI DirectCUII (apparently runs cool/quiet, this particular version has the best price of the 1gb ti versions of the gtx 560 in the UK)

RAM: corsair vengeance CML8GX3M2A (changed site that I'm buying ram from as my previous choise of ripjaws has gone up in price, this ram choice is still low profile to better fit in the build)

SSD: Crucial M4 64gb (did take the suggestion of 128gb under consideretion but finally decided I can't push my budget up any further, especially considering my original plan was to build a non-gaming htpc for about £300, current build total is approx £1000...)

HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB (highly recommended, didn't get the F4 as i wanted the faster speed)

Optical: Samsung SH-B123L/BSBP Blu-ray (excellent ratings, often recommended on build forums)

Mouse: Logitech MX anywhere (would have gone for the pricier gaming style MX but my wife hates the cut-out for the thumb)

Keyboard: Logitech K800 (wireless and backlit, great for watching movies in a dark room)

Soo, hopefully I haven't missed anything or get anything completely wrong (after the help I've received on this forum I'm pretty sure all my errors have been rectified) and once I get the parts I'll get a few photos of the build on here so I can join the club!

You don't need a 850 Watt PSU for that.

560 oder 650 got sufficient power for that rig even with a GTX 580 in it.
