CM V6 GT - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
@Fermitigas
I did indeed mean that I would like some cathodes in red, but the ones I've seen have many reviews claiming they look pink. I could always switch to blue or purple to match the V6 GT LEDs I guess.

I watched a video of a V6 GT installation using the V8 mounting supports, and it looked pretty complicated. Installing my cooler was much easier than I expected, I did need my girlfriend to insert one screw for the backplate to get me started while I held it in place (because the hole in the HAF X backplate doesn't line up with the 1155 holes on the Extreme7), but then I did the rest on my own. The two spring dampening screws into the supports went in really easily.

I am wondering if maybe the AMD board has simply got less space around the processor for mounting a heatsink. I promised photos, let me see what I can do, I have them on an SD card but I don't have a card reader...

Here is the board, maybe you can see the difference to yours regarding the placement of the heat sinks...

700

Here is the fan in place. Sorry, I need to get better light and a smaller camera if you want to see how much space for the heat sinks. If you can wait until the weekend I'll figure it out.

Now, you mentioned buying UV blue fans for the V6, can I ask which fans you bought exactly and are there red ones?

Cheers

Oh man, how come I was'nt able to mount it. doh.gif

Thanks for the pics bro, we have the same mobo actually. I'll try it again next time. thumb.gif

You got a really nice set-up there. thumb.gif

With regards to your questions, My cathodes are Sunbeamtech and apparently they dont sell red ones ( http://www.sunbeamtech.com/PRODUCTS/CCFL/CCFL.html ) however, if I would really need it, I can acquire red ccfls in this site ( http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=10660604 ). This is in the Philippines of course.

The UV Blue Fans that i bought is also from Sunbeamtech ( http://www.sunbeamtech.com/PRODUCTS/wed/Silent_UV_LED_Fan.HTML ), however, they seem to be phased out right now. frown.gif If you sitck with the red theme, there are CM fans with Red LED that you can use.

As for your USB 3.0 problem, you might just want to check this out ( http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?273907-**Official**-Asrock-Z68-Gen3-Extreme7-amp-Extreme4-thread ). Apparently our mobo's usb 3.0 ports are just limited for usb 3.0 accessories. I also have that problem with my keyboard and mouse. Its some sort of usb 3.0 controller limitation at least for now.

My USB 3.0 problem is over. I installed the latest drivers from the Asrock site for the second time, and now my USB 3.0 ports are working. That's good news, because I only have 4 USB 2.0 ports.

Thanks for the links, I had read that the fans in the V6 GT were unique, but if I can replace these with any fan of a similar size then I will just look on amazon. I prefer to buy from Germany because I get things a lot sooner. Having said that, I'm seriously considering buying a QPad MK-85 keyboard with red illumination which comes ALL THE WAY from Sweden (although I would, of course, prefer a Ducky Shine).

I will be going to the UK soon, where they have actual computer stores (unlike Luxembourg) so I might even wait to look for fans and cathodes until then. It's maybe good to see what these things look like before I buy them :-)

So you are going to stick with your red theme then, nice! thumb.gif

Goodluck on your build bro. I'll look forward for the pics! biggrin.gif
