I don't want a red color scheme so I was thinking of getting a P8Z77-M. Am I missing out on too much by not getting the gene?... Sadly progress will be slow and incremental due to my using said college computer to acquire a thus far worthless history degree.

I recently built a computer using the P8Z77-M Pro. The non-Pro had gotten better reviews at the time, but the Pro worked out fine. Both versions are much cheaper than the GENE, and you will get the same performance, just fewer extra features. A sensible purchase for a student.

As for your degree, if you love History then stick with it. Teaching or a post-graduate degree would be necessary to continue with that line of study. If neither of those appeal to you now, then it's time to change. Stay in school and finish something! Starting with your new computer thumb.gif

New addition of the Noctua NH-D14 Cooler, Very happy all though i had to move the 670 up to the next slot and had to move my ram to the 2 far left slots, And the front fan of the cooler wont fit with the vengence ram install, so thinking of installing it as an exhaust fan.

I recently did something with the front air penetrator. If you get rid of the yellow cable on the switch it turns into an on/off switch for the fan.

But if you do that it's max RPM is 900.

I tried a lot of different things for the AP180 but could not live with the noise in the end even with a resistor giving a lowest speed of 600rpm it was just too noisy. I changed it for a Phobya G-Silent 18, 700rpm with a resistor inline to give me 450rpm and using the original switch I can still have two speeds. The Phobya at 450rpm is really very quiet and far better for my needs, I can not hear it at all unless I put my ear right next to it. Air flow is lower than the AP180 at but still adequate for me and can still cool my GPU passively so I'm very happy.
Next purchase for the TJ08 will be a Be Quiet Dark Rock cooler and some acoustic sound dampening material to reduce the humming of the steel, I have not yet found a GPU with reasonably good spec that will run quiet enough but I haven't given up yet. So happy with this case, it seems that I can build a very very quiet PC in it fairly easily.

I just wish manufacturers and reviewers would stop using the word 'silent' when they really mean 'quiet', there is a big difference ! An item can only be called silent if it emits no noise at all, a fan that is not running is silent, as soon as it starts running it will be producing a noise, it cannot be 'very silent' or 'ultra silent', this is totally meaningless. Silence is absolute, there are no degrees of silence only degrees of noise. Please spread this around in the hope that we can put this straight, I hate misleading inaccuracies. typer.gif

Hey guys i'm waiting for Intel haswel for my first build and I want you guys to tell me what you think of this build. I am going to to some light gaming still thinking of getting a 660ti. I'm going to reuse my pre-build hard drive and i'm going to put the windows on the ssd any thoughts. Thanks for the help. (That is why there is no cpu of mobo yet)

Guys, I've just built the following system:
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Ih1I

Now I'm not sure whether I have enough clearance to put something like ASUS GTX670 DirectCU II video card in it, because of the massive Noctua NH-C14. I'm pretty sure something smaller like single slot EVGA would fit, but what about ASUS?

Also, maybe it's better to use blower GPU in TJ-08E, since all the air will go outside. But I'm also looking for something as quiet as possible, hence DirectCU II...

I'm only using 180mm penetrator in this case and my Seasonic PSU is in top-fan position.

Thanks.
post #3897 of 7199
Welcome aboard! Sound like a good system! A lot of people here have the Asus 670 (myself included). The positive pressure from the front 180 mm fan will ensure that all the GPU and CPU exhausts get forced out of the rear openings.

Thanks! Yes, I really love the looks and noise levels with this one. It seems I should have enough clearance, according to Noctua FAQ, I may just have small issues with fan clips touching the 670's back plate. With some isolation, I guess it's not a big deal.
post #3899 of 7199
Several have had their fan clips touching the back of their video cards. Touching a backplate should not be a concern, but as a precaution you can do what others have done: either bend the clips a bit away from the video card or cover the clips with a small amount of electrical tape.

A few brief pluses for the Gene Vs the P8Z77M : * 8+4+2 Phase Power Design for (CPU/ IGPU /Dram) * Intel LAN chip, * SupremeFX lll - Supreme sound (via Realtek 898 Sound chip with Creative software enhancement), * Enhanced Fan Management via ASUS Fan Expert2.
ROG build.
Possible Neg. Consumes higher Wattage, * No PS2 keyboard support ( In the unlikely event it is required).

Unless you require the ''M" PCI slot, the P8Z77M-Pro version provides enhanced features eg. 6+2 Power Phase design, * Higher spec sound chip ie. Realtek 892 - instead of ALC 887 fitted to "M"
