The cabling from my PSU is so think/stiff that I can't conceal the 4x6-pin connectors to my 670's. Somewhat irrelevant anyway since the air down there is so dirty and turbulent that cabling is hardly the issue with two hot cards polluting the case with their exhausts.

Yeah. Lesser cables. But I use those sleeved cable extensions which take a lot of space and I can hide my front panel and usb cables well...wink.gif

Hey guys smile.gif

If you liked this board and are eventually moving to Z87 I am testing Z87 MPOWER . I hope to have as much information as I can readily available to you such as tests and features wise. I will have this very soon so hang on smile.gif.

If you are wanting to see a particular test or feature looked at please let me know via PM. I will likely not reply as I expect I will get more than a few. Also I don't give information before I am ready and when the embargo is up (So its not worth asking).

I have a few other things in the works as well wink.gif So stay tuned, as I know many of you will be very happy wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

Is there an option to turn off those blue LED's on the top right of the board? I want to use this board in my black and white build, but I think the LED's kind of kill the look.

Go into Bios, ECO tab, Motherboard LED Control=Off.

I am experiencing a weird issue and I think it my motherboard. Lately, my PC won't turn on. I keep pressing the power button, nothing happens. I even used the power-on button on the motherboard itself, still nothing...

Flashed the BIOS to 17.7, same issue. Flashed to 17.8, again same issue. Switched to second BIOS, again, same issue.

Anyone experience this in the past with the Z77 MPower?

Wow this thread has exploded in the no. of pages since I've been away for the last couple of months with uni work etc.

Finally can spend some time on the rig, and picked up an epic bargain. Scan Computers Ebay account had a listing for a 3770K brand new for £100 + £5 delivery. They only had 4 left must be the last remaining stock before haswell is being stocked up for. Anyway me and a mate picked up 2 each and hopefully I can get a good over clocking one out my 2. Would have bought all 4 but my mate told me about it and he's trying to get his first rig up lol.

My question is guys I've currently got a 2600k at 4.4 with vdroop at 25% giving a load voltage of about 1.294 (checked with multimeter). Running a custom single 120 rad loop, will prob add another double thick 120 rad in there in the next few weeks but as of now I load at about 75C with IBT. Where should I start with the 3770k? What's a good low voltage for 4.4-4.5 (don't need to push further as I'm just gaming) at that speed should get a performance boost over my current 2600k at 4.4.

Hey I know you! You're the guy from LinusTechTips! I asked you tons of questions about sleeving. Where is your build log BTW? I can't find it in the build logs section!
