Yes, probably the reason I choose both. If I were you I'd go with the ASUS 7900 series with this cooler. They are hands down the baddest looking graphics card on the planet. Can't wait to throw another 570 in there. Oh, the thermal guard on the motherboard is removable.

- I wanna do it for the fun of it and experience.
- Im not a gamer however Im gonna overclock the *toooot* out of my components then bring them a couple steps back just to keep it cool
- Looks nice in the case with all the glow stuff
- I wanna cool the CPU and the GPU (open for suggestions).
- prefer rad to be installed inside the case
- the bigger the rad the better
- my components are:

CPU AMD 965 C3
GPU havent decided yet but mostly its either HD 6970 or HD 6950
Mobo Asus M5A99x Evo
Memory 16GB Corsair DDR3
PSU 650W mostly gonna have to upgrade it to 850W unless I need more than 850W please let me know.

Sound Level> Performance>Looks

looking forward for your suggestions thumb.gif

The other thing you want to look at is your GFlops in IBT, you want them all with in 1 GFlop. Constancy equals stable. Voltage plays a big part in this, too much it all goes out of wack, the same with too little voltage. I discovered this trying to get my crappy i5 750 to 4.0Ghz. One other thing, don't feel bad if you can't get your OC to what others do, I have noticed my voltage hungry i5 750 running at 3.8 Ghz out performs most 750's running at 4.0Ghz+ I chalk that up to making sure it's as close to 100% stable as possible. I know there other ways to skin a cat, but this is how I do it. I would love to here how others test their OC's and what you do to make you feel all warm and fussy about OC'ing. This is coming for a person that has had to reinstall window because his OC killed his OS. thumb.gif

I've come to my conclusion... sozo.gif I'm running into a heat wall...sozo.gif I think it's time to go Liquid. Nothing major,
just an H80 to see if I can take her to the 4.0Ghz mark... 'STABLE'
I'll post up my Load Temp's after I run some test's to heat this baby up... rolleyes.gif which really isn't that hot!!!!
I'm still only on a dual-core... Once I can run through one of my gaming spree's and have my rig run a normal day
at 4.0Ghz for 24hour's with out a hick-up; that's when my 'SCOUT' will go into retirement.. (wife take's owner-ship) eek.gif
I'm going to throw that Phenom II 975 into the 'SCOUT'; so at least my wife will have '4' core's to do her work.

rolleyes.gif I can hit 4023.12Mhz & sit Idle all day long... applaud.gif As long as I don't touch her...LOL lachen.gif
wheee.gif Only then will my 'TROOPER' be worked on & become my main rig.... specool.gif

Average O.C. at Idle temps'......
375

I'm a big fan of the XSPC Rasa kits.

Yeah, I thought about the rampage series, but, I thought they were a bit too "juvenile" for me. The Sabertooth's look more for the serious "adult" enthusiast. biggrin.gif J/K I just like the military look.

The two molex for the back fans I plugged into the Molex on my PSU, and all the little two pin and three pin connections were connected already... except for one. Theres one male 2 pin fan connector in the back of the case that doesn't have a plug to go into.

When I turn on my computer the fans, speeds and leds all work fine. However, every other time I turn on my computer the fans will work flawlessly, then the next time none of the LEDS will be on, and only the back exhaust fan will be spinning. It's really odd because it happens every other boot. Does anyone know what i should do with the extra 2-pin plug, or why it's working flawlessly half of the time?
Flip Flop Curcuits work that way. one on one off. you may have a bad controller. I would suggest testing your molex to the controler but it sounds electronic and not a mechanical fault. If it is the control panel see if you can contact a rep on the problem and get them to send you a controller cheap if not free. If not.. Holler.. And Join up. We can help our brother

After all the research i did on fans, the noctuas were raved about the most. then i watched test after test. it seemed every fan performed different in every test. at one point the sythe typhoons out performed the noctuas. the Gelids i bought were also highly recommended like the noctuas. all the test on them were really good. once i get them in the case i will tel everyone what my own personal opinion is. i dont understand why noctuas wont change or atleast give an option for different color. oh and just so you know, noctuas has an updated version of the p-12.

Im ordering the rampage tonight.
should i get windows 7 or wait for windows 8 <
im worried about the never ending bug problems windows have everytime they introduce a new software. why cant they just continue to improve the existing. they are just now getting windows 7 under control somewhat

and still looking for good set of psu wires. any suggestions or links would be great.

has anyone seen a rampage board in the trooper. they are really big boards. its called an extended ATX. but jeez those things will do anything you want.

next things to get is water cooling and ram.
