Was that to me ? about the Toxic card ? IF SO ... yeah I know they went OOS again by the time I got up in the morning, I suggest if anyone wants one, to look after midnight PST, as I think NewEgg does their update to the web site at this time.

Big mistake on a reviewer's part IMO...

L.E. Scratch that, I managed to find one review where the measured length is 9.5" or around 24cm. A bit short but I think it might just fit.
Guess you didn't look at the MANUFACTURERS website huh ?

Frequently Asked Questions
Top Questions
How long are the hoses on the H60?
The hoses on the H60 measure about 11.5 inches in length.

How long is the tubing, fan power cable, and pump power cable on the H50?
The tubing is 11-12 inches long.
The fan power cable is 10-11 inches long.
The pump power cable is 7-8 inches long.
I'd assume the H80 would be the same ? no reason for it not to be ?


Edit: OK, also the Antec KÃœHLER H₂O 920 & KÃœHLER H₂O 620 both state ... Tubing Length: 13.0" / 330 mm

Don't be so sure. The H50 has longer lengths than the H70. I'm not saying that the H60 is different than the H80, but without someone taking a measurement it's safe to say that they could be different.

Well they are NOT Like I said, 24cm between my points of interest, ~26 from one end to the other. Check that link I posted.

I looked into this as well, but went with a rear-mounted exhaust set-up instead. One option I saw someone else employ was to use a fan without the blades, etc. to extend like a shroud. You could try it if you have an extra fan you aren't using.

I am confident that they are long enough for me to mount the rad at the front of the case, and if not I could always use a shroud or something similar.

@LA_Kings_Fan I was thinking exactly the same Let's hope it won't come to that, although refilling the system might not be a bad idea seeing how many people complain about air inside...

I almost forgot, this is the review I found where the tube length is measured (just in case anyone else needs it).

Two in the morning? You had the fever bad! Was it an OpenBox deal?

Either way, congratulations! Now I hope it all works out as you planned.

TY ... no not OB ... at least it better not be, I paid the retail and hope to get the rebate back in the mail, but I noticed my will call slip had R at the end of the item # which usually IS open box stuff ... if that's the case I'll refuse it and make them give me a HUGE discount or a NEW factory sealed box Card, because I'm sure no one would return one if they could have unlocked it to a 6970. (thank U-tnorris)

See you're still looking ... best times used to be Mondays, TUESDAYS {best day} and sometimes Wednesday around 4 pm PST to hit the GPU open box updates, and it looks like NewEgg also does Weekday updates to the site for everything at midnight or so pacific time. Good luck on your search as well.

@ LA Kings Fan - I think you mean unlock it to a HD6970, not HD5970.

To those that are thinking of refilling their H60 or other prefabbed units, keep in mind they use mixed metals, so you will need to put something that has anti-corrosive additives in it to avoid issues with mixing aluminum and copper in the same loop. Also, if you do take the tubing off and put new tubing back on, I would suggest either a t-line or a res to make bleeding and filling easier.

So I pulled my second HD6990 out last night to sell and put my two GTX480's back in. I figure they are good enough for what I do. The only real issue is that I cannot use the PCIe x4 slot now for a tuner card. I guess I will have to get a USB tuner now. Anyone have any suggestions on one that does get too hot, isn't uber expensive, say under $50?

Anyone know of a 92mm PWM Fan w/ BLUE LED's ?

I can find a few that fit 2 of the 3 requirements, but really can't seem to find one that is all three.

Then again
... http://www.overclock.net/14797142-post2434.html ... with what snakemed is saying I guess maybe I miss read things in the Users Manual the first go around ? I thought you needed the 4 pin PWM fan's for Qfan to control them off the motherboard ? or is that for individual control, and w/ 3 pins you control the set of "case fan headers" at one speed and the "CPU fan headers" at another speed ? I somehow thought I read to control each fan individually you needed PWM fans, otherwise what's the point of PWM fans if the Gene Boards software can override that ?

Im building a new system with this motherboard and an i7 2600k cooled via a Antec 620. I will not be doing any extreme overclocking. Just want to get a moderate amount of overclock which wont tax the hardware too much. Im not into the overclocking scene, never tried it and am just interested into getting some extra 'free' oomph from my hardware as it seems designed to do so.

1600 ram seems to be the favourite speed to buy but with ram prices so low i thought i just as well buy something a little faster as ill be overclocking.

So with only a moderate amount of overclocking planned what speed ram would you recommend?

Many thanks in advance.
