Of course there are people that think Seagate is terrible, but no matter if they're from WD or Seagate, they're still hard drives and all have their issues. It just happens that I've had issues with WD drives lately so I'm kind of on an "avoidance."

Thanks! Also I heard it is a good idea to run DBAN on a new drive, is this true?

I realize that a few lucky chips will be able to clock for high Ghz and maintain low temps with no significant cooling.. but the average chip wont.

Yeah, 1.24v for 4.8ghz. But since the newer version of prime, it is no longer stable long term.

No worries...I've been using these fans since 2009. They are really some if the quietest fans I've ever used.

I realize that a few lucky chips will be able to clock for high Ghz and maintain low temps with no significant cooling.. but the average chip wont.

I ran 30 passes of IBT a few nights ago at 4.6. It only needed 1.23 vcore, and the temps never exceeded 40-43C with my custom water loop. My cold air induction box really helps to keep the temps down. I had 5C air running over the rads. This kept the water temps around 8-9C.

Later that night I ran a Super Pi 32m at 4.9. I only needed 1.43 vcore to make that pass. I also passed a few XTU runs at the same speed and vcore. Temps started to get a little out of hand on the XTU run, peaking at 77-80C.

Tomorrow night it will be -14C out and it'll be my last chance at hitting 5ghz with my water cooling set up and cold air box. Then we're going to pull the loop off, insulate for cold, mount the CPU and gpu pots and have a go at some dice runs. If that goes well I'll rent a 280L dewar of LN2 and have a go at 6+ ghz.

I'm really pleased with this retail CPU's performance so far. I hope it scales well with sub ambient cooling.

Is it possible to take the 180mm AP from the tj-08e I have and mod it to the top part of the HAF XB?

Cheers for the add snapshot sir, Here's a couple of pics of the build that you but the brakes on half way through with your Freeman's box. I was dutifully doing the needful with my Republic of Gamers build and buying everything in red and black when I saw your build, so far. Ordered a whole load of new bits for the final build of my XB. To look at the new parts list, you would think I was being sponsored by EK waterblocks for the build, but it's more like I should have bought shares in the company before I bought all the blocks, fittings and tubes form their CSQ range. An Aquabox Professional Black 5"1/4 single bay Water Reservoir will replace the XSPC dual bay twin loop res and the FrozenQ res will be used only as a feature, not as part of the cooling loop. Mayhem's pastel orange will be used for the coolant, and Mayhem's pastel green in the Amber FrozenQ reactor res. The Phobya 4x 30w fan controller is out, and the Lamptron 2 6x 45w fan controller will be used in instead. I'm a bit wary of fan controllers after melting a Scythe kaser fan controller. My fault, I overloaded it. So the more durable Lamptron 2 will be used to control the fans and pumps. Have a look at the build log for more info and pics, sorry camera phone only. I think I must have thrown my digi camera away when I was moving mad.gif

How do you actually take off the two front fans? There's a metal plate in front of the so I can't get them out  And is it okay if I put 2x120mm and 2x80mm as intakes and only one exhaust, the 120mm fan behind the case? I took the 200mm off the case because I'm trying to make this silent as possible.

Unclip the front panel, there are three clips on either side and one on top, refer to manual if unsure. The fans are screwed in from the inside of the case, but you will need to remove the front to take themout. Then walk over to your bits box, or start one and drop the little 120mm fans in there and get some 140mm fans. The mounting holes are already there for 140mm as well as the ones the 120mm were fixed through. Picture please:D let us all see what you did with your XB. Have fun
