Just an update, not that anyone really cares
RMA'd board is being replaced at no cost to me by NCIX and I should have a new one on Tuesday... Actually I am hoping it will be here tomorrow.
Rig will then be:
ASUS P8Z68-V Pro GEN3
G.SKILL F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR Sniper SE 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1866 CL9-10-9-28 1.5V
Fractal Design R3 Black Case
x6 Fractal Design Silent Series 120MM Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan
BFG 850W PSU... no link because I can no longer find in on NCIX. I'm looking to replace it anyway with a Corsair Professional Series Gold AX650 650W after I get the H80
Will probably pick up the Corsair H80 next paycheque
Went to add the H80 to my wishlist and saw they were on sale... was going to try and do a pricematch but the H80 wasn't listed on Newegg.ca and the H70 was the same price so I just had to order one now
Just so you know, we do care. I (for one) know what it's like to be waiting for parts or money to buy the parts. BTW, that's a good price on the H80 that NCIX has. I was going to go that route but felt I didn't have enough room in my case for the dual fans (I should have just put one fan on the outside of that case) so I opted for the H60. One feature I did like on Corsairs higher versions of their water coolers was the fact you could plug them into a interface they have and run some software showing all the graphics, stats, etc....until I saw the price of the interface and said, I really don't need this...lol...
Hang in there, everything will show up and work great for you.
