Yeah looking at this photo of a Noctua NHC14 install w/ my Corsair Vengeance RAM, it looks like slots 2, 3 & 4 are OK, but slot 1 for 16 GB RAM could be an issue ??? but then again it looks like the Heat Pipes are what get in the way, the FAN maybe wouldn't ? I wonder IF I could turn the COOLER 90 or 180 degree's and avoid the clearance issue ?

Edit: Well I looked up Noctua's compatibility issue's chart and they don't seem to THINK it will be an issue ???



So now the question begs ... is it worth $50 MORE than the CoolerMaster GeminII S that I KNOW will fit w/o issue ? but I'm unsure if COOL's as well as the Noctua NHC14 ???

Then again ... now I read somewhere that ALL of these DOWNDRAFT Cooler units that BLOW air DOWN onto the CPU / Motherboard area, are actually blowing more HOT air down than COOLING the area ... come to think of it, the STOCK CPU cooler blows UP right ? or am I wrong ?

From my observation, the clearance from the cpu to the ram looks to be the same as full atx motherboards.

Is that right or wrong?

Does anyone have any Idea when FRY's or Microcenter will have it in Stock??? I rather buy it local so I can exchange rather than RMA something and wait for it to be Returned... IJMO.

If its not going to be in local Fry's and MicroCenter by the 11th, I guess I will have to order from Newegg or Superbizz..

Do you guys know if SuperBizz will have the Discount or only Discounting through 4th July Week?

The compatibility chart you referenced was for the motherboard. It is only stating that the cooler will fit the motherboard. IIRC, there is a RAM compatibility chart as well. And again, IIRC, if you orient the cooler so that you can fill all four ram slots, you can see that you won't be able to use the bottom fan.

I would think the Noctua would perform better than the Gemini, and the down draft is also good for the mosfets as it gets air moving over them at least. Always a plus.

EDIT: After checking the Noctua site, I see they got rid of the ram compatibility chart. But only a few months ago I was looking at the Noctua coolers and there were definitely compatibility issues with Vengeance. I know the C14 itself will clear, but like I say, the bottom fan will not.

Thanks Ovlazek ...

I guess I might just stick w/ the GeminII S then ... it's cheaper, it fit's, it looks cleaner to me, seems to work OK, and had an extra bracket that allows you to switch from ONE 120mm fan to TWO 92mm fans ... and If I do that it should have better performance I would assume.

BTW ... see you're looking for a PowerSupply ... NewEgg has a good deal here, Antec 750 Watt @ $55.00, and the color scheme fit's in w/ the ASUS ROG board

Nice find on the PSU. You read my mind on the color scheme. All of my tubing in my loop will be red and the fittings will be matte black. That and of course the ROG red and black. Actually I just picked up a psu yesterday and forgot to update my rig. Went with the AX750 because I need fully modular due to the complete lack of cable management in my case. That and I can sleeve my cables with red paracord without voiding my psu's warranty if I actually man up and DO IT.

Edit: Just saw this...

EDIT: Full disclosure: This is coming from somebody who runs with a P180, which is by no means a mATX case.
I'm just saying that I would make full use of all of the space I had available.
And yes, the P180 is a mATX case, it is just a very poorly optimized one as far as space is concerned (I also own one).

So I got my board today after ordering it last week from some unknown company in Canada. Got everything hooked up and the intel gigabit LAN won't work. I've tried installing drivers from the CD that came with the box and downloaded driver from Asus website. Tried connecting to the router and directly to the modem and nothing works. It keeps saying the ethernet cable is unplugged and I know for sure the cable isn't broken.

Both the orange and yellow lights on the ethernet port keeps blinking at the same time every second. I can't even connect to my router as well. Has anyone who owns the board have any issues? Did your LAN work right out the box without the drivers installed? Only thing I can think of right now is that I have a faulty ethernet port which is going to suck.
