PS - Thanks iARDAS as I only saw the CPNS 11x Performa on Newegg, but not the extreme version with the feedback.

Sorry...I respond to one thread and it gets posted with the wrong quote...

Since you guys are talking about cpu coolers in the last posts, I think that would be very usefull to list the coolers that are confirmed to fit with our Sabertooths, something like a list in the OP, or a spreadsheet..
Noctua NH D14 here, no problems with the thermal armor thumb.gif, the only problem would be using memory with tall heatspreaders, a known issue with the Noctua.. rolleyes.gif

A list of products would be welcomed. Normally every LA1155 compatible fan should fit but the thermal armor might ruin it for some.

 

I will still take my chance with the Zalman CNPS11x and see if it will fit, but if not i will either go with Noctua or H80...

If your using the case I see in your profile, you could even mount the radiator to your window... It can be mounted anywhere that two 120mm fans would fit side by side. However, if you went with the H80 or lower you could just use your rear exhaust and a single fan or a push/pull setup.

Hmmm I knew about the H80 and knew that it could be installed on the rear exhaust but i had never thought about the H100 and the side panel. 

 

Thank you

i will than install a brand new copy of Windows 7.

Is there anything else I need to do on the UEFI?

I will start OCing the CPU only after i get my computer up and running with the latest drivers and etc...


Just curious as to why set the Hard Disk to AHCI? Just want to know if this is something I should do as well. =/

Cause i will have an SSD as a bootable disk and HDD as storage.

 

I was adviced to do so when using an SSD.
