I've killed my share of MSI boards, they do take a pretty good beating before I win. The mpower has been great so far.
I forgot to add Gigabyte z77 in there, playing on a z77 ud3h right now. Good board so far, just wish the clear cmos button was a bit further away from the reset & it had at least 1more USB port that doesn't use the VIA controller.

I have two ASRock Z77 boards, both have had no issues and give high OC's (3770@5.2 and 3570@4.9). I think it's just personal experience in terms of if you've had buggy/faulty boards.

I still would have got the better cpu block...

Not the Monsta then? That's a higher fpi rad?
And better cpu block, being the one that comes with the 35x pump? That might save me a few bucks too vs wb+pump.

Yeah comes with the m5X pump.. that block is Swiftechs very best block better then the Apongee HD.

And yes the Nexxos Monsta 80mm 480 rad. When i get my Case Labs TH 10 ima put 4 of those in it for fun XD...

Awesome!!! tongue.gif

I think I'll go with that block and get a 5.25 bay res, with water level indicator.
For rad I'll most likely go with the one with highest FPI to take advantage of my 220cfm fans, probably these: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_457_667_200&products_id=20983

It is 80mm thick so u can use more silent fans and still get as good or better results then 60mm and under rads with noisey monsters on them.

I wanna make it as cheap as possible, but the best performing stuff, and noise is not a concern.

I always play around the 1400-1800 rpm fan limit... thats the max I would go on my fans.





The thickest is the RX360 (63mm) (Main reason I went with my Danger Den case is because I found it cheap localy (250$) and the mofo can fit of these rads with two in the push/pull config and I just love THICK rads).

Second best is the SR-1 from hardware labs (54mm) and looks the sexiest but reason I went for the RX was there was a $20 premium between them.

Best compermise though seems to be the XSPC EX360 with it being 34mm thick and about 10~15% less performance at the same RPM. The thing about it is that it scales very well with RPM and if you are debating whether to go with RX360 in a single push config or an EX360 in push/pull config the EX will win.

Hokies I haven't looked into rads in the past year or so, are there any performance tests comparing that Rad with the other top performers?

Not sure on the rad, but I like the look of the Monsta 80mm thick one. And for the high fpi thing, I wanna get the maximum cooling potential, I don't care for noise and I already got two 220cfm fans man. I'm a hardcore bencher wink.gif

here's the thing. if you get a kit you pay actually less, only drawback is that you get 7/16'' compression fittings and most folks (inlucding me) opt in for 1/2'' x 3/4'' tubing, so 7/16'' x 5/8'' compressions would be useless for you... and the stock tubing is garbage.

anyways, as per rads ... it's actually the thinner EX line outperforming RX (thick 62mm or so) line at higher fan speeds (and static pressure, that's what matters for fans ... and their bearings for longevity). however at low/silent fan speeds up to 1,400rpm the RX line outperforms the EX line. hope you understand what I'm saying. I use a fan controller and for daily use those fans on both rads (push-pull setup here) spin at merely 40% of max speeds (1,900rpm) bumping up only when CPU gets hot (over 70C) thanks to my RheoSmart controller. I have actually both thick and thin (RX+EX) rads here, but if I were to buy them over again, I'd go with 2x EX line or some other brand, e.g. BlackIce or aCool.

either way XSPC RS line sucks and stay away from it LOL! take any rad(s) that fits you! smile.gif

There is and i have read them but do not remember where to find them..

I do remember the Nexxos Monsta 80mm rads coming out on top by a good margin..

Thats why i went with them and will be staying with them.

Material internal: Mostly copper
Material casing: Side panels steel, threads brass, copper chambers
Colour: Black
Dimensions (LxWxH): 522 x 124 x 86mm
Connection threads: 6x1/4“
Outlet Connection threads: 1x1/4“
Mounting thread size: M3
Pressure tested: 1.5bar

LoL the Monsta is 86 mm thick o_O.

While the EX360 in push/pull will beat the RX360 in push config... The RX360 in push/pull is whole other story!

But Good luck finding a case that will fit it biggrin.gif
