Had the Vengeance 8GB red kit on amazon.de for 32 EUR (new kit!), didnt believe my eyes...made the order asap... right before checking out, site does not go forward, cant check out... they removed the offer, and set it back to 61 EUR
(still searchable, and in the list 32 eur, but once you open the product, its 61..)

I like the case choice - different and interesting!

About the Hydro: It will cost you a few bucks more, but it will be effective, create far less noise and you won't have the "fit problems" you are concerned about with the air coolers you are considering.

You could have gotten a Corsair H60 for less than $55. at Newegg through August 31st. I think they are still reasonable at about $65 or so. If it would work in your case, I would consider it - quiet and effective. If you want it to cool even better under load, set-up a push/pull fan arrangement. That is what I have done with an H60 in an Arc Mini. Lots of us have done this with success. Good luck whatever you decide!

It looks like im better of with a budget cooler by the looks.



As you can see there is room for the heatsink to overhang components.

Hello,
3 pin fans work in Maximus gene-z? Do It reduces the fan speed?

Your 3-pin connector fans will work via the five motherboard headers, and yes, it does allow for fan speed control via Qfan.

The 3-pin connectors can be fitted onto each of the motherboard's 4-pin headers, leaving one exposed pin (this will be obvious when you go to make the connection - it can really only fit one way without undo force, etc.).

The fan speed for the three case fan headers can then be controlled via qfan in the BIOS, i.e., slower for idle (no load) and faster under load allowing the computer to be quieter when not under load.

You can also control the two CPU fan headers, but I decided not to run those at slower speed for idle versus at load, since one CPU header is connected to a Corsair H60 pump and the other is connected, via a splitter, to two fans set-up in a push/pull to cool the radiator - it didn't make any sense to slow these down and they aren't particularly loud anyway.

I wanted all PWN 4-pin fans, but the Arc Mini comes with 3-pin connector fans, so replacing all the fans would be an added expense that I didn't need, especially when Qfan works so well anyway.

Yes, it works very fine with 3pin Noctua NF-P14 and NF-P12 fans from DH-14 cpu heatsink and also with Arctic Cooling Arctic F case fans.
And for your info: If the fans run at full level, the UEFI BIOS was resetted...

Many of your confirmed components are the same as I selected (red) for my build and I think you will be happy with them.

What size rear exhaust fans will fit in the PC-A04? Is it smaller than 120mm? That, and the side door fan option, were factors for my selection of the Arc Mini for my build.

As to the CPU cooler, I agree with others that have commented that, if you are concerned with heat, then this is one component to upgrade.

Good luck with your build! Cheers!

Parts confirmed in my mind:
MBoard: Asus MAXIMUS IV GENE Z
Case: Lian Li Black PC-A04
PSU: 850W Corsair AX-850
RAM: 16GB G.Skill RipjawsX PC-12800
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K
SSD: 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 2.5inch SSD, SATAIII

Still thinking:
CPU HSF: Use stock cooler OR Scythe Samurai ZZ 3 OR ???
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX580 DirectCU II OR MSI GeForce GTX570 Twin-Frozr III

For that Setup either top blow Cooler like Noctua NH-C14 or Corsair H50/H60.

If possible i was after a few dimensions from people with the board.
I was wanting to know how high the black heatsinks on the board are to see if this cooler could actualy fit on the board overhanging one.

Would be a great help if somone could supply that information as I am unable to find it anywhere.

You've certainly done your homework.

The beauty of a blower cooler like that is the fan will also push air across the black heatsinks, thus cooling the motherboard's power components. While this is something that you'd mostly care about when overclocking, it certainly can't hurt!

I'd use the NOCTUA NH-C12P SE14 {High End} or COOLER MASTER GeminII S RR-CCH-PBU1-GP {Budget} as they give you 40mm of clearance compared to your 29mm using that Scythe Samurai ZZ.
