Enjoy your new hardware mate!
Hate to disappoint here, the sabertooth is an excellent overclocker, but you cannot really overclock with a non -k cpu in the 1155 sandy/ivy series cpus. If you can, rma the cpu and get the 3570k. It's the only one in the ivy i5 that can be decently overclocked.

Could you define "decently" OC? I can still take the core back to the TigerDirect store. I know that my old i5-750 was well overclocked to 4GHz, but I wasn't planning on going any further with this one. Meaning, if I can have it stable at 4GHz, I'm not going to complain. But, if $20 extra will give me that much of a difference that it would be noticeable in doing 3DSmax rendering and gaming, I may just go and upgrade (again).

**EDIT**
It seems that I have the turboboost upped to 4GHz without issue-granted that's only 300MHz higher. Eh....

Oh wow. TigerDirect has actual 'brick and mortar' stores? Did not know that.

The thing with non "K" ships from intel is that they do not have an unlocked multiplier so with the i5 3570k ship you can just up the multi and the voltage for the most part to get the max oc that your cooling will allow. The K series chips have been hitting 5ghz with good cooling for a while. So to get the most out of a Z series chipset it pays to have good cooling and a K series cpu be that the i5 or the i7 or at least thats my 2 cents on the idea.

Which would be best along with having a 240 radiator at the top; having a second 240 (or different size) radiator at the front, bottom or rear (outside)?

If i was to put one at the front is it easy to mount? or does everything have to be removed and modded to fit it?

240 30mm rad up top, and any 240 in the bottom. For a first time buyer you might want to look in to the XSPC D5 Raystorm kits.

Yup. I fried something, and i think it is the 14pin chip. The controller kinda works, but not the way it should be. I don't get any voltage on fan connectors no metter what i press and light connectors usually have 12V, but not always and it has nothing to do with my commands.
I have testet all the capacitors and they are fine. Nothing looks burned so the only thing left is the fragile brain of the operations. The top of the IC is blank so i can't replace it.

I have contacted local CM office and they either don't know what it is or they are not willing to tell me.
20 euros is not that much, but i don't want to pay that right now.


So i am hoping that, maybe, someone knows what it is or has the panel with the chip that is signed.

Have you tried to RMA it? Most times here in the US they will just send you the replacement part.

I don't suppose you guys have any links to OCing this combo?

Yes a 360 can fit with modding in the top.

The panel has been modded. I have replaced red led with blue ones. It has nothing to do with the failure, but i doubt they will accept it. Although, it won't hurt to try.

Thanks guys for you help, I would have about 3 blocks so im thinking 480 would be enough.... I like the idea of a slim at the top and a slim down the bottom. Looks pretty neat smile.gif

And I'm redoing my loop... 240 rad is getting mounted vertical in the front bay area, GTX 670 ftw 4gb added (on air), crystal head vodka bottle for reservoir, acrylic shelf made.... and push fan added to the top radiator for now. More on the way as I make progress.

No doubt intended, do you just assume this by your measurements on the case or have you come across such mod?
Any links or pics?

Thank you thumb.gif

You can only get a couple hundred MHz overclock with the non-k models, overclocking with only the unlocked but limited bclk.
On the K models, you can also change the multiplier of the bclk and as delicately put, get the max oc that your cooling will allow.
