Thanks for the info harlen. smile.gif

I know I could fit a 212 Evo and 4cm tall ram (Ripjaws X) into most Asus and AsRock 'ATX' boards with about 0.125mm of gap, or placing the intake fan 2 fins upwards on the heatsink. It would be interesting to know whether or not the cpu socket and dimm slot spacing is the same as on an ATX board, if so I think they will fit fine.

I am using the Noctua NH-D14 with Corsair Vengeance LP and it is fine. Here is a link to the NH-D14 Ram compatibility chart that can maybe give you an idea of what your getting into. It states Ripjaws X would be fine using the D14.

Thanks for the info guys, I will buy this board for sure.

Did some digging and found this, it's a 212 Evo on this board, and knowing that a Noctua can fit pretty much sums it up.

thx xF5x

Well that's good to know.

I'm using HDMI and never even knew, there was 2 [separate] optional onboard sounds

So, exactly which sound processor passes an audio signal thru to the HDMI cable ?
Or is that a raw signal, processed by the audio receiver on its own ?

Hey...that's my Arc Mini thumb.gif

Yep, that's a 212 EVO...with room to spare for the RAM. Not much, but some....and the RAM could be much taller and it would still work. Those are Ripjaw X modules.


There have been changes since then. There is now another CM XtraFlo 120mm on the other side of the EVO (same PWM fan that comes configured as a "push" fan on the EVO)...

...and the Fractal fans and Fractal fan controller are history...replaced with Noiseblocker PWMs, which I am letting the Gene-Z control.

My debug says AA. The mobo manual says that means: "System has transitioned into ACPI mode.Interrupt controller is in APIC mode."
Could that have something to do with my problem?

By no means am i an expert here, lol. But from my understanding you would be using the X-Fi software running through the realtec chip not a seperate X-Fi chip.

Wow awesome! it's a nice build, I added credit in my last post.

It was the decision maker for me. thumb.gif

X-Fi ::: That's a nice little package

So we thinks, there's actually a single sound "chip" card , and you can control that chip with the two seperate audio software packages

Does sound good tho. Don't know if it's better or not, and doing a side by side comparison would be kinda difficult
