thank you for helping me and posting here back to back, you saved me a few headaches and some


i love the L10GT case for whatever reason people hate it, i also didnt pay 300$ i payed 180$ for mine on sale smile.gif

im stuck to tigerdirect because i do have credit there, as much as id want a top of the line mobo, i already bought a 7950 card and cheaped out instead of a 7970

i hope i have no issues with this new mobo smile.gif ill have a few more headaches learning the setings on it and getting my OC the way it was on my G45... i was at 4.5 with v1.320 and running at 63*C max load with p95,ibt 100% load using a corsair h100

im hoping to break my records smile.gif

wish me luck with my loop! thank you so much for your help

ok im wrong, i need a few millimeters on top of my ram to clear the CM blade master fans i bought

http://www.overclock.net/t/1218332/fixing-my-dull-case-project-thread

how did this guy manage to do this frown.gif im so baffled right now, im going to have to measure stuff to barely fit


should i just buy some 120x20mm slim fans and throw away the amazing CM blademaster 120x25mm that were going to give me amazing static pressure? frown.gif instead of buying a mobo? the problem is ill need to overnight the fans which is going to cost so much frown.gif

the mobo seems to have a bit more clearance which is just what i need but

is it worth losing >3 static pressure fans and putting in slim yateloons or would upgrading my mobo and keeping real fans be better
nah.. seems im doomed, looks like the heatsink on the left of the gigabyte board would affect my fan too

seems ill need yate loons AND the motherboard

Will popping off the RAM sinks or switching to Samsung low voltage RAM give you the clearance you need?

Slim fans don't generally generate as much static pressure, so you'd probably be better off just switching to a push config of good 120mm fans instead of push/pull slim fans. Something like the Bgears Bblaster, GT AP-29s, or Deltas on the louder end or Gentle Typhoon AP-15s or Swiftech Helix fans on the quieter side.

the ram fits fine, its just the top of the ram where the release button is it whats literally a few millimeters to close

i couldnt switch ram because i paid alot for some very good ram frown.gif would be like throwing more money away then i already am
i was under the impression the CM blademasters generate the most static pressure which was why i bought them

that GB motherboard MIGHT make everything fit, but im literally going to have to buy it and bring it home :/

tbh, at this point idc if i have 1 or 2millimeters of clearance, if i can clear it im good, it will be a long time untill i ever upgrade this machine so ill have everything that i do want in it frown.gif case, the cpu, the watercooling, ssd, gpu, i wont be changing anything out, especially if i swap this mobo

so that GB board only supports 3rd gen i7 which means i cant even use my cpu in it? lol ah man

more of a headache than i can handle right now frown.gif waited too long for kit to come to such a surprise of millimeters and inch

It supports the same CPU's as all the other Z77 boards man. What CPU do you have?

Core i7-2700K, i7-2600, i7-2600K, i7-2600S supported since BIOS version F7. It supports Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge.

Shave the release tab if it's just a few mm too close.

i7 2600k bought from the store as well

you guys are lifesavers i have over 20 browser tabs open and im going insane

im just going to figure out if i should put my radiator somewhere at the bottom vertically or if i can twist and bend my way to make it work at the top

im still going to the store tomorrow morning frown.gif gigabyte im coming to get you, please save me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IDK if its possible with your case but if you're willing to do some modding you can always drill some extra holes to offset the radiator mounting so you don't have to buy another motherboard.
