I went the easier and cheaper route and bought the complete XSPC kit. And my temps are great! You can pick and choose to build a complete custom loop if you want. You will get a little more performance, but it can get pretty pricey. Also the complete kits are great for beginners because all you do is pick what size fittings you want and the providing company will make sure that all the components fit correctly. If you do go with a complete kit go with XSPC with a D5 pump only as other complete kits suck.
As for draining and refilling your loop on a maintenance schedule; it depends. Most people will say every 6-9 months you should drain and refill your loop, but this really is where you should have a solid grasp of what you have running in your loop. Many people run the same distilled and biocide/killcoil for a year or more without issues. Some even 2-3, so this can easily be debatable. If you decide to run a premix solution, consider sticking to the 6 to 9 month interval to make sure you aren't getting gunked up blocks or any precipitate matter floating around. Me I just run Distilled water ($1 from Walmart) and Killcoil (that came free with the XSPC kit) and I should be good for about a year. But I do keep an eye out for any debris lurking around.
For how to install a loop there are many videos on Youtube to show you how. For first timers just build your loop inside case then take out of case and fill with water and do a leak test for a few hours. Here is one of the best Watercooling for beginners threads. HERE

thank you for this informative reply, and for trying to help me as much as possible smile.gif , I have also checked the link you posted and you indeed gave me a better idea on water cooling and how to pick parts, for starters now I know that what I want is a triple fan radiators and one single fan radiator, I will be only cooling the processor and the rive chipset, so am guessing this configuration is more than enough to cool them both, my case is nzxt switch 810 so I can easily place the pump at the front bottom of the case since the drivers bays are removable, as for water blocks am still not fixed on something specific, what I still need to learn about more is the piping and what kinda of pump to I need for the setup, I have to say it seems like a lot of fun smile.gif you get to hand pick everything according to what you need and according to your personal taste. the RIVE seem to have a lot of variety of chipset waterblocks, what I want to keep in mind is I want my system to look super clean, I don`t want too much piping running inside my case, xspc seems like a good option but I really don`t like the bays Reservoir, I would rather have a small Reservoir that I can place anywhere in my case such as the the ones from swifttech, also ek rive water blocks looks nice, so I might pick up the cpu and chipset water blocks from EK and the rest from xspc.

For the C600 SATA RAID Controller driver (under Storage Controllers), I have version 3.5.0.1092. Is this the latest? I saw a version on the Intel Download Center that said "3.5.0.1101" but when I try to "update" it, keeps saying I have the latest one(?).
Then, for the chipset drivers "Intel C600/X79 ..." (under System Devices), it says I have verseion 9.2.3.1016. Is this the latest version?
Also, how do you exactly update Intel RST?
The other issue I'm having is getting my RAM to run at 2400Mhz CAS9 (9-11-11-31 @ 1.65V). It worked fine for a while but then I started getting crashes in BF3 and Premier Pro CS6. I put the RAM speed down to 1600Mhz and it runs flawlessly.
What are the settings in BIOS I need to adjust (voltage-wise) in order to get the RAM to run at its rated 2400Mhz speed? I know that the 3930K is rated to run at 1600Mhz so 2400MHz will be stressing the IMC especially given that I am running 11 hard drives (10 SSDs and one HDD and one optical drive) AND 4 GTX-680 Classified in 4-Way SLI. I really want to get the RAM to run properly and although it seems to be able to do it, the system is not stable. Also, if 2400Mhz is out of the question, would getting the 32GB 2133Mhz kit work well? Or is putting more RAM (since I have 16GB now) not that good of an idea.
Please help!
I updated my BIOS to 1.30 and the stability overall has improved; I'm running the GPUs in Gen 3 mode as well.

Welcome to the circle of confusion!!

I'm using version 3.2.0.1126 for DeviceMgr\Storage\Intel C600 Series Chipset SATA RAID Controller. I searched on the Intel download center, could only find 3.2.0.1134 (status=latest) for the C600 series chipset RSTe, god knows why 3.2.0.1134 would be shown as 3.2.0.1126 under device mgr:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=21752&lang=eng&OSVersion=Windows%207%20%20*&DownloadType=Drivers

I didn't even check out the Chipset drivers under Devicemgr\System devices\. You got me curious and when I checked.... I have different driver versions loaded for different PCI Express compoents. For example, I have 9.2.3.1016 for those PCI Express Root Port 1 to 8 components, whereas SMBus Host & High Defnition Audio Controllers are using 9.2.3.1013. I'm confused as well.....

For Intel RST driver update, are you indeed referring to the ROM or just the driver in Windows (3.2.0.1126)? As far as I know the ROM will need to be complied with the BIOS and flashed with the BIOS flash utility. I could be wrong but it is what I learned when I attempted to update the Intel RAID controller ROM for my P45 Asus mobo to support 3TB drives in RAID. That didn't work out well because of Asus didn't release any UEFI for P45 boards. Hence I'm here running the Extreme 11.

32GB @ 2133 is something I've been working on. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I could boot into Windows @ 2133 after BIOS 1.3 update. But machine is not stable as I would get Video Driver stopped responding with my MSI 560ti OC880 card, monitor would not wake up from monitor sleep mode. Also would get BSOD here & there with 0x7e stop error. Still trying to pin point whether issue is caused by the memory OC or video card driver itself.

You are running Dominator Platinum so it may not apply to you. Perhaps the guide I posted in my earlier post will help you. I could run P95 for an hour after I adjusted the VCCSA voltage to 1.10 volt:
http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=10512

However, I'm back to 3.2 clock & 1600 ram speed with XMP Profile 1 loaded, as I'm trying to pinpoint whether I would get the "Video Driver Stopped Responding" issue or the random 0x7e BSOD:

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.

So I'm not sure if it will help if you go for 32GB @ 2133, as I'm still trying to get my 8x4GB Ripjaw Z series 2133 to work based on their memory list. Changing the BCLK to 125 seemed to help slightly but with QPI link running at 5GHz with 32x multipler, vcore voltage was set high in Auto mode - around 1.39v. Tried setting to 133 BCLK with 27x multiplier, vCore voltage was at 1.4v and 5300MHz QPI link... I just don't feel comfortable to do that.... + I got a BSOD (memory management related) when I tried to run P95 Blend test with BCLK 133. I think 125BCLK for 2000 ram speed is max I would go for.

I'll keep playing when i have time!! My girl friend has been complaining about the amount of noise I make when I run P95 to verify things... so I have to cut it down LoL

Will be interesting to see what you'll end up doing. Also thinking about replacing the wimpy Antec 920 Khuler I have with a real water cooling system. The fan noise is really bothering me!!! Swiftesh 3 fans radiator with built in pump is also an option I'm eye balling... let us know how it turns out for you if you are doing it. Good luck!

I was able to get 2133hz stable by just loading the first XMP profile. I have no idea how people are getting 2400hz to hold stable. When I do a blend test at that speed the workers stop almost immediately.

Okay so a few things first. Why is the "latest" SATA RAID driver for the C600 3.2.0.1134? I have 3.5.0.1092 and now there's a 3.5.0.1101 but I am not able to find them on Intel's website(?). Were they removed? What is the latest and CORRECT version of the Intel C600 SATA RAID driver for our mobo's (Extreme11)? I guess I have the wrong one? But it has worked fine without issue so I'm not sure if I should switch to the 3.2.0.1134?

Regarding the PCI Express Root Port drivers, I too have two different versions; 9.2.3.1013 and 9.2.3.1016. There seems to be a newer version than ASRock's version (9.2.3.1020) on Intel's website: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20462&ProdId=3335&lang=eng&OSVersion=%0A&DownloadType=

That driver is 9.2.3.1023 but it says Intel Desktop Boards so does that mean it's only for Intel motherboards? I'm thoroughly confused about this.

Can someone please confirm the LATEST drivers for both the C600 SATA RAID driver as well as the LATEST CHIPSET driver for the ASRock Extreme11?

Regarding the RAM, I believe the settings have to be tweaked quite a bit to get it to be stable at 2400Mhz. I set it back to 2400Mhz yesterday @ 9-11-11-31 at 1.65V but increased the CPU PLL voltage by one notch to 1.823V (from 1.811V). This improved stability quite a bit but BF3 still crashed a couple of times with "BF3 Has Stopped Working" nonsense. I also got a BSOD (0x1000007E) but that was related to the hard-drive (SSDs) and since I have not updated to the latest firmware yet, that should hopefully rectify it.

The Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB 2133 kit is only 4 DIMMs so it shouldn't be as bad as filling all 8 DIMMs. I will test it out @ its rated settings and update the thread. I really doubt that the system, given the CPU's limitations, will be able to handle 2400Mhz without issue especially with multi-GPU configurations and large SSD RAID arrays.

For example, I have 9.2.3.1016 for those PCI Express Root Port 1 to 8 components, whereas SMBus Host & High Defnition Audio Controllers are using 9.2.3.1013. I'm confused as well.....
For Intel RST driver update, are you indeed referring to the ROM or just the driver in Windows (3.2.0.1126)? As far as I know the ROM will need to be complied with the BIOS and flashed with the BIOS flash utility. I could be wrong but it is what I learned when I attempted to update the Intel RAID controller ROM for my P45 Asus mobo to support 3TB drives in RAID. That didn't work out well because of Asus didn't release any UEFI for P45 boards. Hence I'm here running the Extreme 11.
32GB @ 2133 is something I've been working on. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I could boot into Windows @ 2133 after BIOS 1.3 update. But machine is not stable as I would get Video Driver stopped responding with my MSI 560ti OC880 card, monitor would not wake up from monitor sleep mode. Also would get BSOD here & there with 0x7e stop error. Still trying to pin point whether issue is caused by the memory OC or video card driver itself.
You are running Dominator Platinum so it may not apply to you. Perhaps the guide I posted in my earlier post will help you. I could run P95 for an hour after I adjusted the VCCSA voltage to 1.10 volt:
http://www.gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=10512
However, I'm back to 3.2 clock & 1600 ram speed with XMP Profile 1 loaded, as I'm trying to pinpoint whether I would get the "Video Driver Stopped Responding" issue or the random 0x7e BSOD:

So I'm not sure if it will help if you go for 32GB @ 2133, as I'm still trying to get my 8x4GB Ripjaw Z series 2133 to work based on their memory list. Changing the BCLK to 125 seemed to help slightly but with QPI link running at 5GHz with 32x multipler, vcore voltage was set high in Auto mode - around 1.39v. Tried setting to 133 BCLK with 27x multiplier, vCore voltage was at 1.4v and 5300MHz QPI link... I just don't feel comfortable to do that.... + I got a BSOD (memory management related) when I tried to run P95 Blend test with BCLK 133. I think 125BCLK for 2000 ram speed is max I would go for.
I'll keep playing when i have time!! My girl friend has been complaining about the amount of noise I make when I run P95 to verify things... so I have to cut it down LoL

Were they removed? What is the latest and CORRECT version of the Intel C600 SATA RAID driver for our mobo's (Extreme11)? I guess I have the wrong one? But it has worked fine without issue so I'm not sure if I should switch to the 3.2.0.1134?
Regarding the PCI Express Root Port drivers, I too have two different versions; 9.2.3.1013 and 9.2.3.1016. There seems to be a newer version than ASRock's version (9.2.3.1020) on Intel's website: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20462&ProdId=3335&lang=eng&OSVersion=%0A&DownloadType=
That driver is 9.2.3.1023 but it says Intel Desktop Boards so does that mean it's only for Intel motherboards? I'm thoroughly confused about this.
Can someone please confirm the LATEST drivers for both the C600 SATA RAID driver as well as the LATEST CHIPSET driver for the ASRock Extreme11?
Regarding the RAM, I believe the settings have to be tweaked quite a bit to get it to be stable at 2400Mhz. I set it back to 2400Mhz yesterday @ 9-11-11-31 at 1.65V but increased the CPU PLL voltage by one notch to 1.823V (from 1.811V). This improved stability quite a bit but BF3 still crashed a couple of times with "BF3 Has Stopped Working" nonsense. I also got a BSOD (0x1000007E) but that was related to the hard-drive (SSDs) and since I have not updated to the latest firmware yet, that should hopefully rectify it.
The Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB 2133 kit is only 4 DIMMs so it shouldn't be as bad as filling all 8 DIMMs. I will test it out @ its rated settings and update the thread. I really doubt that the system, given the CPU's limitations, will be able to handle 2400Mhz without issue especially with multi-GPU configurations and large SSD RAID arrays.
From the looks of the asrock website, they haven't updated any of their drivers since the release, I've just been using those. My intel C600 is showing 3.1.0.1068 in device manager, mine must be old.

Actually 3.5.0.1101 is 3.5.0.1092. I just installed 3.5.0.1101 & in about box it stated 3.5.0.1092. I don't know whether this is intentionally or typo. If the current version you're using works fine, then no need to update the driver. I found IRSTe driver kinda fragile; e.g. 3.0.1.7016 ran fine but 3.2.0.1126 caused BSOD at random time. So, newer driver not necessarily better.

BTW, what is the standing issue(s) with this board? I ask because the title "Owners Issues & Hopefully Fixes".

Working perfect for me. The best board I have ever owned!

Psst. Dont tell the RIVE Owners I said that.
