Another first time poster! Absolutely love it. Need to go back and count at some point. Would also be interested in how many first time posters stayed and became active OCN'ers. But regardless...welcome to OCN HeyBear!

I've got to admit. I started at OCF. This build among others slowly but surely brought me over here thumb.gif

chris regarding that early cpu cooler, looks like a phanteks to me, couldnt you rotate it 90 degrees so its longer horizontally?
post #2613 of 3982

I asked about that. He said IIRC that it was even close to the gfx card.

I can see from here its visibly taller than it is wider, so why couldnt it be rotated? If that 120mm fan on the left thats exhausting is an issue it could be removed.

I wondered the same thing, but if he says so, I'll believe it.

Seems that this is a motivating thread, I just spent the better part of a day reading this entire thread then studying for the last 2 test of my degree tomorrow.
+rep for the amazing build

I rotated it 90 degrees so that the fans were pointing out the rear exhaust....but it was still touching...or on the verge of touching if the graphics card was drooping a little on the end. And it was the aluminum fins of the cooler that were touching...not the fan. I nudged the fans upward a little so that they were not centered. The Extreme11 is a very cramped board with 7 PCI-e slots. I'm sure the Phanteks would have cooled better than this smaller one I'm using now....but I didn't want to risk a short and its a temporary solution anyway. It'll be wet before you know it!

I'm planning on doing some videos of block installation. And then I'll do some of the finished build once everything is up and running. Glad you're going to do a build...and I hope you do it here on OCN for all of us!

Awesome to hear! Both are good forums...but I've found more of what I needed here at OCN.

Pretty much the same here. I decided that if someone could dedicate the time and effort for something of this magnitude, I should be able to at least do a quick and easy water cooling project.
