The area behind my case is very warm, due to the heat coming out of my case in the rear. With being so close, wouldnt the air be warmer going into the mobo?

Sometimes airflow is airflow! smile.gif It wouldn't do any good to have it exhaust, as it will pull very little air from the heatsinks.

The fans are optional, too. I'm half-tempted to take 'em out since I have a robust 5-year warranty wink.gif

Add me if you haven't already ;-). And yes, that is regular clear tape on that fan wire, lol! I'm going to put some sleeving on it this weekend to clean it up.

Guru3d never mention to update bios?
There is only one bios. All Z77 boards are already made for IB cpu.
Any new ones, would be for stability and compatibility for ram.

Thank You Speed. I can't wait to purchase this and a 3770k. It's going to be 10x better than my gigabyte UD-7 and FX-8150. What a nightmare that set up turned out to be. As far as Guru3d: "Important note: most Series 6 motherboards will support Ivy bridge processors! All you need is a BIOS update with support from your motherboard manufacturer. Obviously features like PCIe Gen 3 and native USB support will not kick in.". I may have misunderstood what they were trying to say. I just didn't want to be caught in the same situation AMD pulled on some of their 990 and 970 chipsets where you had to get the bios flash b4 you could use the Bulldozer.

So I'm going to purchase the 3770k do you all think its overkill for gaming or shoud I go with the IB i5? I aalso do some video conversions but nothing major. Again thank you for responding to my query Speed.

Personally, I installed the rear small fan as an exhaust.

Having it intake all the exhausted air from my CPU and GPUs just doesn't feel right.
