Like if I were to do TheJesus's 2nd pic but put my QDC's after the pump, before the rad, would the water drain from the res THROUGH the pump?:

Yes you can drain through the pump, open the res top which lets air in and presto!

Alright everyone (who looks at this thread wink.gif ), start throwing out X79 MB suggestions. I'm waiting on Ivy reviews, but microcenter has a great deal on the 3820 so I may be going the X79 route
post #126 of 257
How much are you willing to spend?

Edit: Will you be going for max overclock... etc. (need a little more information about what you are looking to accomplish with it.

Edit 2: From a theme stand point it looks like one of Asus Rog Boards: Gene, Formula, or Extreme; Asrock: Extreme Series or Fatality.

I'm really only looking to get a good, stable OC (probably 4.5-4.6) and the lower the $, the better. I dont wanna skimp on the MB though, so max $$ for MB would be around that of the RIV-F
post #128 of 257
I like the RIV-F a lot other than the fact that it only had 4 ram dimms, but that is just because in my opinion if I am going to buy an Enthusiast level board I should get the all the options available to the Enthusiasts.

I know a lot of the Switch owners are partial to what Asrock offers, I am not really a fan of the Fatality series and I don't really like the little fans that seem to be appearing on a lot of the x79 boards.

Edit: UD3 might also work for you.

yeah I havent heard the greatest things about ASRock, so I'd probably go for the Formula. I dont mind the 4 dimm slots, as I cant really afford the extreme, nor do I think I need it.

But I may want tri-SLI in the future, so the only Z77 board currently looking good to me is the EVGA Z77 which is $350 on its own, so I felt the RIV-F would be a step up from Z77?

I would agree, plus it will most likely last you a while. If you do decide to upgrade in the future you will be able to get Ivy Bridge-E some time next year where as with z77 is the last of the socket 1155.
