That's a really nice looking build. I like the color coordination. I have the blue PH-TC14PE but really wish I had a black one.

Thank you, I thought for a long time before I bought the black one while back. Thankfully it was before anyone in here had reported the crinkle problems.

How are you going to use the Sabertooth Z77 ATX in a M-ATX case? thinking.gif

Thanks! Unfortunately, no build log for this one. I will probably do one with the Node 804 when it arrives. The cooler was the black version, I painted the fans (poorly, they need another coat). The expansion covers and the HDD trays were powder coated. I also had the heatsinks of a different motherboard powder coated but I no longer use that board.

In regards to the motherboard question, I picked up a Maximus V Gene on eBay last week! I'm excited to try it out. My only complaint so far is the red, I wish it was all black so it would match my black and gold.

Maybe if I upgrade to the 9 series I will get one of Asus' new gold motherboards. I'm on the fence though because my 3770K is a really good overclocker. If the rumored 4790K can hit 5ghz, I will probably be upgrading.

look into the new msi boards too..theyve got some nice matx & m.itx all black boards..the new asus boards do look sexy..
i remember your gold theme..its still very atractive theme...
if any 1 can get hold of phantek support..lemme know..i need rma fan replacement pronto..my ph fans sound like this

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=J6V38p9dGSs&ctp=CAIQpDAYACITCLu7nZ_-r74CFYeHGAodhpgAn1IUcGhhbnRla3MgZmFuIHByb2JsZW0%3D&gl=ZA&hl=en&guid=&client=mv-google


not my setup on that clip..but my fans were still new and just started using them
a short while ago..still have 3/5 yrs left on warrenty..so what gives..hey Doyllan..were can i get those cryorg fans? they look almost like TY silent X fans.
post #1953 of 2766
Does any1 have one of these in a asus z87 (or equal size between cpu - ram) mobo that could take a pic without fans from the front? Because i have some avexir rams with led and i dont want the cooler that i get to cover them. I would be very thankful.
post #1954 of 2766
it doesnt matter what type of board you get..this cooler will always ..i repeat
Always cover up the ram slots..with or without fans..120/140mm..

if your after looks get a watercooler..but your setup justice then..h220 or 220X at
minimum..sorry if i seem negative..just that its been asked before
post #1955 of 2766
Yeah no problem, thanks for being direct, so i will avoid this. T hing is ive been waiting for h220x for 2 months, and last week it got delayed again! Really getting tired of it, guess ill go with an Archon x2.
post #1956 of 2766
ive got a gd80 and even with a 120mm on the front of the cooler..i can only see one stick of my vengeance kit...
post #1957 of 2766
well..i know personaly that a tpc812 can do the job too..ive oced a 3570k on a clients pc with it..max load temps never went past 65..and his system was on 24/7 gaming and rendering.had a designer business..so it was working hard..

well if im you get a cheap heatsink now..hyper 212 and then wait it out for the 220X..you wont regret it..theyv done a bit of tweaks from what ive heard on other forums..so be patient

It's not just how far from CPU but how tall the RAM is.
Center of CPU to front of cooler is 72mm
Motherboard to bottom fin is 50mm

What case do you have?

What are your front intake fans now?
FYI:
Thermalright tY-14x fans are all 152x140x26.5mm You can fit on in bottom as intake but front would need to be modified to fit.
