First post! Been reading tons of great advice across the forum here and based alot of my build on it. Thanks in advance for that. I'm upgrading from my first build, which I put together five years ago. It's an old powerhouse that has worked great for me without a single issue, built around the ASUS RoG Striker Extreme. That board did everything I could ever ask of it, so naturally I gravitated to the newest and baddest ASUS board when I decided to join the current generation. I'm going from an E6850 and a GTS 8800 on the Striker X to a z77 Sabertooth with a 3770K and a GTX 680. Needless to say, I'm extremely excited to get started. biggrin.gif

I just got the last of my components in the mail, but before I put it all together, I wanted to clear up a question I had about the airflow when using the TUF Armor and the accessory fans on the board. My old box was a front intake, rear exhaust air cooled system in an Antec 900. It was incredibly cool for what I did with it, and I wanted to make sure that I got everything I can out of the set up this time around, also.

Is there a consensus on how to set up the case fans and the accessory fans to provide the best air flow? I see that ASUS recommends using the accessory fans to push, but I really don't like the idea of reversing my case fans and drawing air in from the rear - my desk is in a corner, with the rear opening for the case up against a window, and I live in Florida. I think it'd work out much better pulling cool air from the front, where the air conditioner vent aims at my intake, than it would be pulling air from the rear, where the sun hits the window during the day.

To compound the issue, I went ahead and bought an H80 to cool, so I have to decide how to configure those fans also. I've seen several people argue for each configuration in the cooling subforums, but no one really mentioned coupling the H80 with a Sabertooth. Should I reverse the case fans, the accessory fans, or neither?

Basically, I'm overthinking this incredibly and I was just curious if any of you could talk me down. rolleyes.gif

My case is the Corsair 500R.

Well welcome aboard to the club and OCN. smile.gif

The verdict on the fans isn't out yet. I've got mine as push as the manual sugessted. Personally I'd like to disable them. Funny how the smallest fans in my case are the loudest little whirling going on in there.

The other way I almost went was push on the top and pull out the side through the IO. No one has run tests or we haven't compared temps as of yet. We're all pretty new with Z77 as well.

Very nice upgrade and night and day difference where your coming from. thumb.gif Welcome back to high end perfomance and even more so to OCN. Be forewarned, there's no word as 'overkill' on this site. It's the norm. tongue.gif

@Arizonian

Have you tried Thermal Radar before? It achieves to obtain as your choices to create your own fan profiles.

whew just finished assembling. I did run into a problem that my H100 in a push pull config is in a tight fit with the 6 motherboard power cable in my Cosmos II case. I hope I don't damage the cable it is pressed up against it.

Other than that I'm having a hard time finding a overclocking guide that is specific to the sabertooth Bios.

I saw that new feature. I just thought it had to do with temps. Thanks for pointing that out. smile.gif

Will definetely be delving into the mother boards features soon. Haven't got around to much as of yet since finishing the install. smile.gif

I posted a guide a few osts back dealing with OC on z77 UEFI bios, not sure if other ASUS Z77 bios are diffrent but it might help. I'm stumped with OC myself in that OC I'm in essence raising the turbo function and not the processor its self..either way its very diffrent than my AMD 990fx bios. In the 990fx the multiplier and FSB was clearly written, in this bios is not hazy but not clear either.
