Haven't done any stress testing quite yet. Last night I was getting 26 degrees with fans up and 29 with fans at lowest rpms possible for idle. Not the greatest but I still have some work to do.
Disadvantage to using 90 degree fittings for motherboard-cpu-motherboard? It pretty much all has to come up when doing a re-mount... annoying.
I'm at work right now so I can't work on it anymore but I had kind of a strange issue last night when attempting to install Windows... none, like absolutely NOTHING was detected automatically. Also the disk drive and neither of my 1TB drives showed up in Windows...even after downloading motherboard drivers; but they all show up in the bios. Nothing was installed automatically and it was just kind of odd. I've never had a problem like that with Windows 7. -___- Any thoughts? I tried plugging the optical drive into both the SATA II & III ports but no dice. I could have just been super tired... giving it another go later today.
The GPU will be going under water on Monday... it's quite annoying on air. Pretty much the only thing that makes noise and it makes a lot of it. I've just been waiting for Koolance to come out with their block, which is Monday. Yay for Koolance being local pickup
Both monitors are Dell 2405FPWs. Old school dinosaurs that I've had forever. Solid monitors though.
