I am pretty sure that the voltage is locked on that specific board, so seeing as overclocking and voltage go hand in hand most of the time, I believe it is pretty unappealing.

Since you are posting this in the prodigy section I can only assume you might just go for that block. I wouldn't recommend it for such a restricted case with relatively low airflow or 'breathing room'
But hey , do whatever you want that's just my opinion and suggestion. smile.gif
Thanks for the info, I've got the ek block but I don't like the design, I'm looking for good performance and good design. I'll keep looking around thumb.gif

Hey guys, I have a question for you...

I'm thinking of getting 2 120mm fans for the front (Noctua NF-F12 PWN) and a 140mm fan for the back, but there is only 1 4-pin on the motherboards...

What are some of the solutions you have come up with for your builds for 3 case fans?



***also, ill have a h100i on the top of the case, so i wont have a drive bay to put a fan controller... frown.gif

That is the board I am using and am quite happy with it. The CPU voltage is locked in the current BIOS, word I have is that this might be fixed in a later version. However I have taken a 3450 and 3550 to 3.9 GHz easily and have a 3570K at 4.3 on stock voltage. The board is rock stable and the Wifi is very nice. Gonna pickup a WiDi adapter for my TV in a couple of weeks to try that feature out.

I own this board it it is okay... has some clearance issues with air coolers so you are going to have to check if yours will clear the PCIE slot. Water cooling would be the best option for it, otherwise you may accidentally block your PCIE slot. The built in wireless is nice, but it honestly is a little weak, signal strength is three bars and i'm maybe 20 feet away from the router with a single wall in the way. My USB Adapter gets stronger signal, however its hard to argue with built in wireless.

As for OC, I there was something about it that I am forgetting. But i'm pretty sure that it is voltage locked... so you will be limited in that regard.
