Thanks. It's all done now, and it looks pretty decent... I didn't get any lights, so it's not all of what it could be... I will be adding LED strips later on though. The cables are also not as great as they could be... Some were too short to be routed how I wanted, so they're not the best... But I will have to buy an extension later on I guess.

The videos should be up by the 28th, if I feel like editing it all... It's over 20gb of video in total!

I like the subtlety of your moderate build. I'm looking to go pd myself if they live up to their 15% increase and hopefully have power usage under control, normally I wouldn't care but military housing is gonna start charging utilities next year so it changed my build a bit for now. Fingers crossed though.

And I freaking love that crosshair V board man.

Yepp. That Crosshair V, and the FX-4100 are both holding up to the abuse of being overclocked by a noob like me... I had it up to 4.5ghz at I think it was 1.44 volts. The CoolerMaster 212+ was keeping it at about 55-60C, which is fine in general, but for me was a little uncomforting considering this will likely be a 24/7 rig. So I went and got the Corsair H100. I know it's overkill for now, but it has room for expandability.

I'm also seriously considering a second 7770, in crossfire for now... I would have a use for them later on, and I could really use the extra horsepower when I get my second and possibly third monitors... I just can't wait till the PileDrivers come out... The FX-4100 just isn't enough for a freak like me... I need the successor to the FX-8150.

And some Bitspower Red LED strips... those would be nice. This thing is quite dark inside right now frown.gif

the H100 isent over kill the H80 is on the same level as the CM 212 the H100 is on about the DN 14 it out shines it when you replace the stock fans and add 2 for a total of 4 120mm fans in a push/pull setup that will put you on the level of a entry level wc loop

Since when is the h80 in the same league as a 212+? Really?

Yeah... I've always thought that pretty much any watercooling system is above the air coolers... Of course there are some exceptions to that rule... But in general, the H100 is considered to be pretty up there for out of the box coolers. And I do plan to add 4 of the Corsair SP120 High Performance fans very soon... As soon as I can afford them.

Closed loop water coolers perform on par with air coolers around their price. Proper air coolers are still high end and will beat or perform similar to an h100, and probably quieter too. I can't stand my h100 on anything less then the quietest setting. A full custom loop will out perform anything else, but at the expense of a bit more attention to it regularly.

Yes indeed. This thing will have a nice big custom watercooling loop later on... But I couldn't afford it right now, so I went with a basic air coooler so I could at least have a working computer. That air cooler just wasn't enough, so I got the H100. I will be upgrading to a custom loop later down the road. The specs on the future watercooling loop are in the OP.
