yeah i was happy to see it was a sata connector

only quickly opened the box as i had to go out--but that caught my eye immediately

going to fully unbox it later tonight and take a drill and a hacksaw blade to my storm trooper and make it fit in there one way or another smile.gif

I cannot for the life of me get this dang thing to let loose of this air bubble. I've got some distilled water so I can top off, but it won't bring it to the top. Can't run over 30% without excessive noise

Have you tried running it with the fill-port cap removed? This will sometimes help to alleviate the pressure that's holding the bubble in place and let it escape through the reservoir. Let me know if this works.

Ok I'll try that. It does look like there is a bubble at the fill cap. I tip the case and it just slides to the side. Looks like it's gonna go away, but then slides back to the opening.

EDIT: There's definitely some bubbles coming out now. Think I'm getting somewhere

Just wanted to chime in again on two things. After using the fans for two weeks, it started to make a lot of racket again. I took a look and could see one of the fans wobble. I went ahead and ordered two Noctua fans for silence. These are working excellent, which I hate to say about the rebranded fans. Either way, thanks for trying with the replacements. I guess just bad luck

After ordering the replacement backplate for the 1150, either I got a warped one or it was a very tight fit. Either way, I had to take some pliers and bend two of the pegs so that it would fit through the mother board. Even then it was a tight fit. It was probably just more bad luck.

Thanks for your help.

I'm sorry to hear about your fans and back plate. Are you sure though that you had the back plate oriented correctly? What I mean by this is that there are two screws on the back of the motherboard that need to fit into the notch on one side of our back plate. If the back plate isn't oriented correctly then you're going to have issues with fitting it and this might also give you problems with achieving a proper contact on your processor.

Not really related to your problem, but you talked about a different plate for 1150. I thought it came with the cooler/is the same backplate as the 1155 socket. Do I have to order the 1150 backplate or I'll be fine?

The 1155/1156/1366 back plate that comes attached to this cooler is also compatible with the new socket 1150.

What are some good ideas for things to add to the top of the cpu block housing? My pump is a replacement, turns out the plastic cap wouldn't stay on.



Perhaps something like the drive 2 setup with a heatsink?

I tried orientating serveral different ways but decided on the way I think it was meant to. There was a screw one the back of the motherboard, holding what I assume is part of the processor mount. I lined up the notche on the replacement back plate with this screw. To be clear, when I say bend the pegs it was more like force them over enough to get it in. It was more frustrating than anything.

Once I got the backplate on, the fans replaced everything has been peachy. 25c on idle and 65c on load. Pump has been purring away nicely.
