WOW what a good price!!! Definetly post some pics when you get everything together and I will do the same. I would love to see how yours looks. I paid 270 after shipping so you got one hell of a deal!!!!

I'm seriously worried about how I am going to figure out the whole fan cables and controller stuff and how to make it nice and neat because I'm OCD about that stuff and that huge hunk of cables worries me because I have never set up anything like that. My HAF 912 had 3 cables. Would you be able to also post pics of your cable management too?

You guys with your shiny 820's...tongue.gif hate y'all xD
jk jk, I'm happy with my cm 690 II.

I'm considering delidding this chip but I know I shouldn't now. Gotta wait till I can order a second 3770k and resell this one.
Though I'm not 100% positive it's as bad as I think. I had some bsods running stock clocks, I think it must be gpu related cause I'm running a baked (previously dead) 9800 gt gpu.
The thing started artifacting and I got a few bsods which I thought were vcore related, but not sure.

Not going to get too into detail, but I'm recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and have been clean for almost a year now and building this computer and talking to you guys about overclocking and all of this interesting stuff has been a huge part of my sobriety. It sucks tthat I have to deal with a death, but at least I can actually mourn and deal with those feelings now so I am really grateful for that.

Hopefully yours goes well like mine should I hope. Best of wishes to you sir.

Any tips on trying to get the glue "warmed" up a bit? Considering I know about black rtv sealant from automotive work, I doubt it but just thought I'd ask.

I'm asking this because when I took a good look at my CPU, there are almost NO gap to squeeze a thin razor blade in between as seen in the videos and pictures . . .

...as I wrote, it was a demo on the shelf at NCIX...since I go 'there a lot' , it had been staring at me for a long time, whispering '...get me outta here' biggrin.gif...the side door was off and scratched a bit, but nothing that couldn't be fixed.

...between the last post and this, I re-installed the 4th 670 card for another Quad-SLI run for Valley (currently at 6036 per below)...on the Stryker, cable management is a bit of a mess because I swap cards quite often and while I'm using a Corsair AX1200, the 4th card is fed by molex mad.gif , but when I'm done with the Phantom / 3970x, I'll post some more pics, it will take a bit longer though...

OT again:

CS:GO, although does not have the nicest graphics is simply amazing and a lot of fun! I love BF3 for its graphics but the competitive in CS:GO is just too damn addicting. tongue.gif I kinda want to look for some OCNers who play CS:GO (namely people in this club), anyone?

...are you getting BSOD 116s or 117s ? Those re often GPU related

A bunch of friends play, I've only played the original game so far...
And, yeah CS for a competitive shooter is very nice, I like that sort of fast paced action in multiplayer fps games.

Just a suggestion, but I don’t think you need any washers. I didn’t, no review I read needed them, or any videos I watched. I am not saying that is conclusive or anything, but I would call Corsair and confirm. The unit is specifically designed to be loose when you install the backplate, then the clamp around the pump will make it completely tight when you install it.

It is designed (like the H220 also) so that you can screw the pump down as far as you can. You just turn the screwdriver until it stops, no guessing how hard to tighten it. If you add washers you are altering that design, and I am guessing that you will have to adjust how hard you screw the pump down to avoid damage to the mobo.

Oh yea that actually just made a lot of sense to me because when you tighten the screws it will pull the standoff up and pull the backplate tight against the back of the motherboard, right? Hmm, I guess the threads I was reading kind of polluting my thinking of how this was supposed to work.

This is where I got the idea:

http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=113973'

Some of these people are saying that after assembling it, it is still loose, but if you have the MVF and you can 100% confirm that your block isn't the slightest bit loose I will trust you and take that washers off. I just don't know why they would assemble the product like that.

EDIT: Well I guess it makes sense. As long as it is completely snug against the CPU I will be happy.


As the O-rings age and heat-up they will yield to the pressures and forces. Which will relax the pressure off the cooling head on the cpu; in addition to this the backplate is designed to keep the motherboard flat! I have noticed with non-backplate installations (like the stock intel air cooler) a BULDGING of the motherboard cpu area! The metal backplate must make contact to prevent this,

I have a similar closed water-cooling system (H60) I did mod the backplate because I wanted more pressure between the cooler and the cpu. What I did was wrap wire around the four metal braces (keeps mb flat) and add 4- 2mm (1 per) metal washers on the backplate stand-offs. it was a little loose but it tighten-up nicely upon thumb-screw tightening. You do have a rectangular metal plate on the underside of your mb,right? the wire is maybe 1mm and is between the rectangular metal plate and the cooler Xplate.

I am asking you to rethink this rubber washer system, just a thought, I do however, think the H100 is a good choice and is a good product. I can run at 4.8Ghz topping at 70* loaded, 4.9 and 50Ghz are under 85* cranked but too high Vcore to run 24-7. but I digress!

If you want a better idea of what I did, or have any other questions feel free.
You have plenty of time to find what will work for you until ypur psu arrives- have fun.

Ps; I finished crisis 3 on normal! the last battle was crazy sick to figure out! I die so many times and had to take a break and come back two days later. well, have fun with the new gear -later dude!
