That isn't a bad idea ... but something I am really disappointed in with this chassis is the cable management ... there is little 2 no space 2 hide cables ... ... I guess they expect people 2 be able 2 go modular considering they buying a high end chassis ... but yeah ... not me ... and the Corsair 650w doesn't have only a few cables either ... lol ...

check my uploaded pictures ... u should be able 2 make out the sata cables and cable management

Just built a rig with a P8Z68-V/GEN3. Would love to be added.

Heh, that's exactly what I did the other day putting my rig together. Two extra sata cables are connected and tucked away for future HDDs.

Guys, i just got my Corsair H60 Cooler and am getting these results with push-pull using Arctic Silver 5. Can anyone suggest me some possible optimizations ?? My comp runs 24/7 for 3-4 days at a stretch.

Yay finally. I've been trying to reply to threads for days now and wasn't able to. Something happened with my account some how.

Sorry, I forgot to turn your replies back on. (Just kidding, I wonder where you went...) The IRST works great. Everyday programs load faster and faster. Some are faster than a blink of the eye now and I'm very impressed at this technology. Only thing with it is, it was meant for a low budget (which is good) meaning you don't need more than a 20-30 gig SSD. Since a 20GB SSD costs as much as a 60 or 64 that's the route I took. A 60gig SSD Pyro from Patriot. First thing I did was hook it into the system under AHCI mode and updated the firmware to the latest. Then I realized it wasn't showing in Windows under Drives. Had to go into the system and tell it there was a new drive there (disk management). It poped right up. Anyway, put it into raid (disconnected the SSD first) and installed Win 7 64bit on my 700 gig Seagate. Then I put the drivers I needed on, with the big one being the IRST driver from Intel. Plugged the SSD back in and It saw it right away as an accelerator and it bonded (for lack of a better word) to the 700 gig without any hassles or hickup's. I was surprised it went so smoothly. Updated Windows, drivers, etc; and sat back and used the computer as always. The next day I noticed the boot time getting faster and a couple of programs I use everyday where also loading faster. Now it take 20 seconds to boot (from power on) and the programs I've been using pop up in the blink of an eye. It's truly amazing.

I am glad I got the Pyro for $89 (after rebate) so it was money well spent (and having a gift card from Santa helped too)....I wouldn't get any bigger SSD for a cache as it would be wasted. Even Intel says any more than 60 gig is a waste. After format it was like 55gigs and I'm using the whole drive as a cache.

Put in the H60 water cooler and it is nice. I'm already going to mod it a bit. I've got it hooked up with the fan drawing air through it and out into the room. It needs more so I have a higher priced fan coming to put behind it so it'll have two fans (push/pull). That should take care of the extra 'Omph' it needs. They want you to draw air into it and I wasn't about to do that as the dust would just get sucked into the new build. By putting it the other way around it just doesn't draw enough air over the radaitor to cool it like it should. It works, but the temps could be lower. That's when I got the idea of a push/pull fan. I looked to see if the radaitor has screw holes drilled in the open side and it does.

Now I'm going to start playing with the graphics card and see why it didn't work in the 16x slot. I've been busy doing a zillion other things. Oh, I did manage to put one photo in my gallery. But as soon as I get the other fan I'll update it along with a few more pix. Oppsss, guess I talked your ear off...... Did you get that I7 to warp 9 yet? biggrin.gif:D

One last thing, the SSD is a SATA 3 and the HD is a SATA 2 . (In case anyone was interested)...

No, I'm referring to IRST Intel Rapid storage technology.
