you may have to 'dig' around in your right side panel for it

see the empty connector hanging ?

WOO! Thanks guys, managed to plug it in and I was also inspired to clean up a few of the cables by routing them through the back. SOme of the cables from my PSU are VERY long. Especially the one the GPU, and I can't hide that one. D:

Can you share lesson learned.... specifically your experiences and assembly procedure?
Thanks in advance for your feedback! ! !

Here is a pic of someone did. It was posted over in the EVGA forums.
The only glitch was that you have to plug in the 8 pin CPU power connector before attaching the H100 to the case. and then be careful when pressing the H100 fan against the 8 Pin wires.

Someone else suggested sliding the rad forward toward the front of the case to clear the 8 pin plug and mount the rad through the case top screen holes rather than the regular mounting holes.
I have not tried either personally.

Sorry the pic is of a P8P67. but if this fits the Z77 should also.

Got an upgrade planned for my build,

Gigabyte p67a-ud4-b3 ---> Asus p8z77-V Deluxe
Intel i7 2600k ---> Intel i7 3770k
Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo ---> Corsair H100


Should be a nice step up as far as CPU is concerned, hope to get it together within the next week. Should all fit nicely in the 500r, just a little curious as to how the rad will fit. I know its meant to be compatible, the fans will just have to sit below the enclosure, above the motherboard, hopefully there wont be too much overlap tongue.gif

Bad idea on everything but the H100 upgrade. The difference between the 2600K and 3770K is minimal and you will notice just about zero speed increases at all except in a few synthetic benchmarks. Unless you have a terrible 2600K that cant get past 4.2 or you want the SSD caching and GPU switching of Z77 I would sit tight and be content. Not sure about your situation but if your system is stable and you don't have any issues, you are just asking for trouble. You have the upgrade bug on a system that is barely 1 genereation old. Trust me, be patient and enjoy what you have.

I need parts for a second computer which I need to be of similar spec to the one I have currently. My costs are being "subsidised" so to speak, so I will be paying only about a third of the cost of the upgrade cost.

The PSU, I need a new psu, I've wanted fully modular for sleeving and such, this is a good opportunity.

The CPU, I want to use the 2600k and given the circumstances of how this is happening I want something new, even though I completely understand I don't need it, im often the strongest advocate for this among my friends as they upgrade their rigs and express how I should do similarly. I'm not going with a lower end CPU such as an i5 because that would bug the hell out of me. Its a $60 difference between getting another 2600k for the other computer or ivybridge for my rig, and I get some satisfaction out of the new gear, as well as noticeable speed differences in some operations I perform such as video encoding. This is a difference I hope to increase further as I plan on over clocking the 3770k to the mid 4ghz range with the newly acquired cooling tongue.gif

The new motherboard I want for a few reasons. I like the features in the deluxe version such as inbuilt wifi and bluetooth, and dual Ethernet ports for bridging connections, these will be incredibly useful for me. Being higher end it will also cope with overclocking better. The z77 chipset is also a nice step up from my p67 board which lacks many of the more recent features such as PCI 3.0 for my compatible video card (eventually to be cards), virtue mvp, SSD caching for HDDs, UEFI Bios, Smart DIGI technology, etc. It also seems logical to me that with a new CPU should come a motherboard which supports all its features. The new computer needs a motherboard and the p67a-ud4-b3a I currently use is ideal for it, once again I figure I may as well tongue.gif

The H100 is actually the part im least sure about. I need a cooler for the CPU as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo I use Currently for the 2600k wont be enough for an OC ivy bridge, also its easier to leave it on the mobo/cpu and move over all 3 parts together. My Rig was never designed for air cooling, I have 16gb of high profile vengeance ram in blue and black which blocks most decent air coolers and I am quite happy with it. I always intended to get a Corsair Hyrdo Series cooler, I'm just not sure what. Normally a h100 would be out of my budget but given the subsidisation im getting for this its practical and will perform nicely with an OC ivy bridge, especially considering the gen 3 cpus get significantly warmer due to a different manufacturing process. I would consider the h80, but its a lot bulkier and a more awkward shape, id rather it didn't obscure the motherboard. Also tests have shown it to be noisier than the h100 due to the push/pull fans acting through the thicker radiator. Also the price difference is tiny. I wouldn't mind a h60, its nice and low profile, thin radiator, quiet, but if I am indeed overclocking heat may become an issue, especially if heat saturation occurs on the smaller radiator.

That was long... tongue.gif

All the justification you need...I wish I was in the same boat or had someone waiting in the wings willing to take my current P67 MoBo/CPU combo and to slightly offset the cost for a new Z77 Sabertooth/i7 3770k.

In addition to some of the Z77>P67 improvements already listed above, the PWM fan management is much better.

Sorry, no help on your original (H100) question...I still have that irrational problem of mixing water with electricity.
