My stryker build is starting to take shape, but I have some noob-ish questions;
1. On my MSI Mpower z77 mobo there is a "auxiliary power connector" for the GPU. In the manual it doesn't really tell me to use it or not, so my question is; I got a Bitfenix white sleeved cable to use there, should I connects it to the PSU, or just have it plugged in the mobo? (Purely for esthetics). Only got a single 680 Lightning (no plans for sli), and I won't overclock it waaay up in the skies smile.gif
2. What is the best overclock (CPU) guide you know about. (Written or video, does not matter)
3. I got a Avexir 32gb 1600mHz kit, do I dare to overclock it to 1866, or is it a bad idea (you can tell I'm kind of a noob here)?
4. Is there any reasons why people don't mount the fans of the h100i over the radiator? (So you sandwich them between the rad and the case).

I've found good prices for stuff at TigerDirect. Compared to NewEgg and microcenter, they have the better prices. You guys got a place you prefer?

from what i understand but not much ( dont use msi but have read a little ) it is just added power for the cpu for when overclocking and does not affect GPU at all. you can plug in to your GPU and extra port or just GPU

Skipping to #3 (I'm at work): I've never felt I had to oc my ram, because it's fast enough for games. I sincerely doubt you will notice that oc. Better buy 2133 MHz and go nuts!! biggrin.gif
Hold on, does the MSI mobo have Turbo boost? That's pretty much the easiest way to oc. As for the best guide..I don't have one but OCN's search function always helped.
On to #4: idk, maybe some ppl are too cheap to buy 2 extra fans? wink.gif On the Trooper/Stryker it requires little modding of the handle bracket.
I prefer sandwich (especially with bacon but that's another story) it means less power needed to cool (less power to fans = quieter case)

was my old 4GB Kingston HyperX Gaming RAM 2x4GB kit before I upgrade to G.Skill Ripjaws Z 16GB 4x4GB Kit witch I had to take it out as it was faulty and caused blue screen crashes so now I'm back using my old ram till I go and get my faulty ram replaced.

Got a Q. what sort/brand of SSD?? is it worth spending the extra money on a faster SSD or not? just go a good standed speed one but I don't want to spend too much 2x128gb SSDs sound good (you lose space when installed so a 120Gb would be only 111GB)

What the hell is your ambient? Do you live outside or something?


Edit: Scratch that. I noticed that you are probably in Australia.
