Look good, but I was wondering if you were really going to use all the additional features of the Extreme over the Formula. If you aren't, I'd return that and either spend it in better cooling, GPU, SSD, or just save money.

So I've been thinking of delving into my first custom loop and ditch the H100 security blanket. I wanted to go with the xspc raystorm rx 360 kit to make it easy but then I see that the kit uses different barbs and tubing than the ones on the fusion thermo. Any way around those 3/8 " barbs on the thermo ?

^ Just thought of maybe making that part of the loop 3/8 ID and the rest 7/16 ID that comes with the kit. Is it bad to have a diameter change in the loop ?

So it looks like my EVGA Z77 FTW has kicked the bucket only two weeks in - from a Win update of all things. Get a "Installation of Southbridge Runtime Services" error and an "IDE Detection" error, with a hang at the marvel controller loading, before the BIOS loads (IE can't flash a new version, hard reset of removing the battery and holding Clear CMOS doesn't fix anything).

I'm probably just going to return it and get a different board. Even if I do have multiple BIOS chips to play with, what does that mater if Win updates could brick them? When I was looking at boards, it came down to the EVGA board and the Asus Maximus V Formula - the EVGA board won because I've never had a bad experience with an EVGA product. Until now.

What can everyone tell me about the MVF? Is it good? Any annoying little features? Unexpected/unadvertised bonuses? Problems? Asus Customer support as bad as I heard? Pretty much anything. I don't do much in the way of OCing, it's a school computer, I'm looking for good, solid performance out of the box ; for CPU-intensive CAD Engineering programs, and some gaming (BF3 being the most intense one - and I play on low settings just keep frame rates high and the lag low - the rest are either much older games, Valve games or games from Indie studios).
