Also thinking of getting the asus p8z77-m as opposed to the pro version, the only difference I can see is the pro has better sound and more sata 3 connections - any reason I shouldn't ?

If your P/S is sucking from the top vent, I wouldn't worry about this. Check out the rear of the case. It's basically open, so plenty of ventilation.

Yeah that's the one. Personally I use the motherboard fan plugs to control the fans. The Asus software is great.

Honestly going from a 2500k to a 2600l I have noticed zero difference in any actual use. My 3dmark score went up a tad. But thats it. Still was worth it though for the small price I paid. And Famine got the i5 he was looking for thumb.gif

I finally got my new system built, but I had a pretty major issue along the way!

As I couldn't afford an entirely new system all in one go, I took the PSU, GPU and DVD drive from my old PC. The GPU is an NVIDIA 8800 GT with a Zalman cooler attached to it, but I removed the rather noisy fan and installed 2 80mm Nexus fans instead. I built the new system and was about 80% done and I tried to fit the GPU in, but it was too big! Thankfully, I was able to nip down to a local supermarket and get a HDMI to DVI cable so I'm currently using the HD graphics built into the CPU.

Here's the main specs of my build: -

TJ08-E with the fan swapped out for a Phobya
Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3 MOBO
Intel 3770K
16GB of Corsair low profile RAM
Samsung 830 128GB SSD
Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 cooler

I've fitted a Silverstone hot swap bay so I'm going to be adding a 2TB hard drive tomorrow. I also fitted a Silverstone FP37 card reader, but the green light on it stays on even when the PC is off, which is a bit annoying.

I'm getting CPU temps of about 23 degrees while idling, which is pretty good. I haven't tested it under load yet. The system is a bit louder than my old machine and the noise is coming from the 2 PWM fans on the Noctua, which is a little disappointing as I thought that it was supposed to be "silent". It's certainly not loud, but my last PC really was close to silent.

I'll post a couple of pics when it's finished. I need to pick out a nice GPU now!

Lol yeah Im sure, the 2500k is so darn quick Im only switching for the fun of overclocking another cpu. I enjoyed amd overclocking more since it was more of a challenge but I do like how easy intel overclocks at the same time.

The light staying on is an asus thing. Anything plugged in via usb retains some sort of power. Same thing when I had the asus CHV too but my msi board didnt do it.

I actually prefer ocing with the multi. Maybe I'm just lazy. It was always a pain getting my ram at the proper speed on my 1055t. It would always run at 1451 because of funky ratio. The harder part with sandy is getting the voltages refined. I'm leaving mine alone now. Finally accepted I'm not hitting 5ghz without a real loop.

Yeah, been READING and READING, if the 2700k stays at $280 Im just gonna get that. Only $20 more and seems that there are a ton that do 5.0ghz. I just want at least 4.8ghz, 5.0 would be the goal though for me too. Hope frys pricematches again biggrin.gif

Can someone confirm that you can screw the ax750 in with the fan facing down in the case?

Also ill be fine with 750W right?

dunno about mounting orientation, but if you are talking about 750watt psu for your sig then yeah, that would even qualify as overkill thumb.gif

You could throw another 570 in there and still have plenty of headroom

A quality 500-600 watter would be plenty actually
