Lots of Corsair Hydro Series coolers, H60, H80 and a few H100 systems. For the H60s, I suggest push/pull fan set-ups. I think there are some Hyper 212+ set-ups represented, too. If you post your system specifics (try the Quick Links" button at the top left of the page) it you will get more informed responses concerning air coolers, too.

Good luck with the build and welcome!
Thanks buddy.

Just a little more info. I was looking at the Antec Kuhler h2o 620 CPU cooler, but firstly I'm sure it uses a 120mm fan and the case I'm looking at getting only has 60mm exhausts:



Am I right in thinking that the 120mm fan from the Kuhler will be too big for this case?

yup, the case comes with a vent and filter right under the psu fan. so itll suck up fresh air from there and shoot it out the front.

and in terms of cpu cooling, i think it's alright, i saw a review with that cpu cooler with only 1 120mm and it was fine, so shrinking 1 down to 92mm shouldnt be too bad. i idle @ upper 20s to extremely low 30s @ stock. i think thats ok range right?

yea the psu is in the bottom front. so i have fresh air being pulled from the rear 120mm and top 140mm fans. and the front 120mm fan is the exhaust.

[QUOTE=LA_Kings_Fan;15044218]Yeah BUT you had the 120mm Noctua's ... and went down to what the 92mm ?
I'm already starting out with the 92mm my case isn't as WIDE as yours hence I don't have the HEIGHT needed for the taller CPU coolers I guess I could look into using the Noctua 80mm fan ? That would probably give me the clearance needed to reinstall the Vengeance heatsink on Slot #1 ... as it seems Cosair is draging their feet releasing the RED Vengeance LP's.

And YES I know I need to finish my build I'm still reading and learning the best way to setup the 128GB SSD and WIN7 and a secondary Storage HDD ... I've already done the complete redo TWICE using the 64GB SSD ... so this next time I only want to do it ONCE and not fill up the SSD drive with crap.

But congrats on your Rig it looks good.


[B][COLOR="Red"]

yea started with 2 120s but im usin one of the 120mm fans that came with the cooler for the case. and that huge ol heatsink gives enuff room for that 92mm and enuff room for the RAM under it

and usethe 80mm

Yep, most likely I will ran the onboard as well, and I'm really looking to get a watercooled 580. Those Evga Classified 580's looks pretty.

This is my previous case, and I've salvaged the WC setup, and now all I need to do is to find 2 phobya 200mm radiators, but unluckyly, they are out of stock everywhere, so I really hope to see a revised model of them soon.

Also ordered one of these pump/res. combos.

You are right, the 60mm fans won't work for the Kuhler or Corsair Hydro Series coolers. What case are you using? What size are the intake fans? The Corsairs Hydros are designed to be intake systems, so maybe you can mount it for an intake set-up.

Forgive my noob-ness guys, but I am looking into putting this board in my new HTPC build, and I have one very important question. I've read this and that about the quality of the on-board audio being everything from "fantastic" to "ok" to "terrible if you are an audiophile." My current computer has an Asus Xonar sound card which made a world of a difference to me. For my new setup, I am looking into bit streaming directly to my amplifier through the HDMI out. Is it possible to do that with this board to avoid the sound quality issue altogether? I'd appreciate any guidance you guys could offer! Thanks!

I believe LA Kings is keeping the OP up to date with new drivers, bios and what not, so that should help with some of the questions and needs.
I'm trying as best I can ... Kvjavs, has said he wants me to take over for him, as it seems his life is just to busy right now, that he never was able to pick up this Motherboard, and thus he's somewhat lost his love affair for it ... so once he can ask a Moderator to make the switch I'll try to revamp the FrontPage of the group ... until then I've got links to the Driver Update Page I worked on in my signature below, as well as the RAM guide.
