I build my nephew a new system with almost the same components as i have only he has an GTX 960 instead of 970 like i have.

He bought the CM nepton 240m instead of the Nepton 280L but the only difference is the radiator. And to be honest i didn't like it very much, the hoses are way to stiff, its almost as loud as my Corsair H100i, mounting hardware is very poor quality.

I tried to mount the cooler on the CPU and when tighten it the threads of the screws were completely stripped... i couldn't even tighten it and when i pulled off the cooler we could see that there were no threads at all on the mounting bushes..

I was very disappointed about this and luckily i could find another bush that would fit the cooler, i connected it again and applied the same TIM i always use on my cooler, Gelid GC extreme.

I overclocked his CPU at the same clock speed as i am running now and run IBT AVX very high for 10 times and his temps were slightly higher than mine and i was running both coolers at maximum speed..

(We almost needed earplugs lol) Jokes aside, he called the retail shop and they agreed on that he send the cooler back and get the Corsair H80i because the H100i was too expensive for him.

Now he is running 4.6Ghz with decent temps and he is very happy with it. Long story short, if i were buying a new CLC i would buy Corsair simply because their warranty is amazing and it performs even better.
I looked at the 240 and I actually think it is lower quality than the 280.

...Err, umm That's a rather large "only difference" I have the 280L and the rad, mounting hardware, fans are all top notch. I have tried most all of the larger CLC's and the 280L is atop all of them. the difference between the 240 and the 280 is the difference between a 4.6 and 5.0.

Corsair announced new coolers btw, they call it the GT series and i quite like them.

Big difference between the H100i's mounting system and the other Corsair AIO's.......the H100i has a decent mounting system.

Haven't used the Nepton series but they look better than all of corsairs lineup apart from the new 110i GT.

Well I have done a complete clean install of Windows 8.1 and I must say it has done a good job. everything seems as it should and the " snappyness" has returned, I have had a few problems with windows update but that now seems to be working fine. I do recommend Start8 for returning the start menu, it works a treat and makes the Win 8 feel just like Win 7 .

Start8


I don't usually recommend anything but this I like.

I am lucky my board will manage 4.9. But it has taken months of tweaking and tinkering to get her there.

Really? Looks like a solid board to me. Can't see how it would struggle to get great clocks on air/water. Is it a bios thing?

m5a99x pro is a good board. m5a99x evo is not. (i am speaking subjectively for an 8 core chip)

they are nearly identical iirc, cept the pro has an extra set of VRMs

0.o eh wut?

Decent is not what i would call H100i's mounting system. Why they go rid of the 4 point contact in-favor of this 2 point contact is beyond me, they would have been better off adding screws that will screw into AMD's stock base-plate.

the Magnetic brakets bend too easily IMHO

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Start8


I don't usually recommend anything but this I like.

I used to recommend Start is back or a plethora of others, but ya know what i ended up working for me

most used programs go on my task bar pinned so i don't have many desktop icon beyond what i'm working on, and the stuff that i use that doesn't get used super often just gets pinned to a cleaned Metro/modern Start

i'll have control panel, this pc folder, run, chrome, hwinfo, sweetfx, paint and TS3 + steam , in the metro i've got benchmarks, games that i'm not playing right now, launchers for games i'm not playing right now

riva tuner and HWinfo are set to start with windows.

i've got a separate log in for my work profile.

With a little bit of know how w8.1 isn't all that hard to get used too. (once you turn off the store and the silly metro apps, the experience becomes much nicer. )

0.o eh wut?

Decent is not what i would call H100i's mounting system. Why they go rid of the 4 point contact in-favor of this 2 point contact is beyond me, they would have been better off adding screws that will screw into AMD's stock base-plate.

the Magnetic brakets bend too easily IMHO
I used to recommend Start is back or a plethora of others, but ya know what i ended up working for me

most used programs go on my task bar pinned so i don't have many desktop icon beyond what i'm working on, and the stuff that i use that doesn't get used super often just gets pinned to a cleaned Metro/modern Start

i'll have control panel, this pc folder, run, chrome, hwinfo, sweetfx, paint and TS3 + steam , in the metro i've got benchmarks, games that i'm not playing right now, launchers for games i'm not playing right now

riva tuner and HWinfo are set to start with windows.

i've got a separate log in for my work profile.

With a little bit of know how w8.1 isn't all that hard to get used too. (once you turn off the store and the silly metro apps, the experience becomes much nicer. )

I've the H80i which has the same mounting as the H100i and it is hard to know if you have tightened it down either enough or flat.

and I've installed windows 10 on a separate disk drive so I will try your recommendations as it has a sort of start menu but I think I should put in the time to learn it properly as when the time comes I will be upgrading.

in terms of ease of use i like the H100i's mounting system, in terms of performance the 4 pointsof contact is better.

Probably should have clarified that.

if the Tubing was a few inch longer i would agree that it is very easy to use... but it is also easy to poorly mount when not paying attention.

ying and yang right there
