yeah i do like my gigabyte and tbh somebody was suggesting just put some heat sinks on the mosfet's but doubt that would make much difference. love the black and red theme of the crosshair though so that is mainly the reason for it over it's ability to OC even though i know it will be a beast for it thumb.gif

So I have received all of my new rig, EXCEPT the HAF XB tongue.gif I still built it on some cardboards haha. Works like a charm.
When I bought it I didn't know 1155 CPU coolers would fit 1150, so I didn't buy a CPU cooler.

Any recommendations? I was thinking H100i, or Noctua NH-D14, or is it too big?

Which hardware have you bought? Board, RAM, CPU, VGA? Do you want overclocking?

Gainward GTX 770 Phenom
ASUS Z87-K
Intel i5-4670k
2 x 4GB Vengeance RAM

Well some overclocking, but not very much. I also don't want my CPU to get at 70 celsius which it does during gaming according to "Core Temp" software.

My new Asus 990fx crosshair V formula Z comes in today. Pretty excited, has many more features over my current gigabyte ud5.

What are you using to cool that? I've got mine hovering at a safe 4.6 right now, i'm just worried that this little H80 won't be able to cool a 5ghz overclock.

did anyone manage to fit a rampage 4 extreme AND a kraken x60/corsair h110? i really want this case to mod, and also mainly because this supports 280mm rad whereas the bigger hafx doesnt frown.gif
