Nope, mSATA is just a smaller connector. It still interfaces with your motherboard's SATA controller, so it's still SATA III speeds at best.

The new NGFF (M.2) standard is actually smaller than mSATA and provides faster speeds, since it also uses PCIe lanes. The Asus Maximus VI Impact is the only mini-ITX motherboard which supports NGFF to my knowledge.

Hey all,

Just payed Kyle a couple of days ago for a prototype Splash, and I'm eagerly awaiting it's arrival! And thank you, Heuristic, your post on reddit led me here smile.gif

Anyway, this leaves me with a few weeks to plan my build.

Currently, I'm reading every single build log there is using a Splash. This has given me lots of good ideas, I'd just like to check them out with you, if that's okay smile.gif

Regarding motherboards, I'm leaning towards the Asus ROG one, as I've understood it this is the best board right now? (The EVGA stinger Heuristic used is overly expensive here in Sweden.). Only problems I've read about the board is the long POST times, has anyone been able to reduce those? 20 seconds seems like a bit over the top.

Regarding radiators, pumps and reservoirs, is there any goto brands? I'm new to WC, and it seems alphacool and EK are the most used? Is there any new product by any of them I should take a look at?

And finally, regarding PSUs, is SilverStones the only choice? What was the name of the fan that could replace the overly load stock fan? Read about it somewhere but I just can't find it again!

Really glad I can be a part of this smile.gif And sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure I get as many things right as possible before I start buying stuff. Would feel a lot better if I get things confirmed!

For all the brothers that have built inside the splash, own a ZX7E-itx board or are going with a msata route, I need to know if the msata placement(behind mobo) will conflict with the mobo tray and/or the waterblock backplate. I've already received my EK RH Gold plated block and I'm yet to get a mobo/ssd. Was thinking of going Asrock instead of EVGA or MSI gaming and get an msata to get some added storage benefits smile.gif

Could anyone/everyone help me out?

Here's the loop with some Mayhem's dye. Really looks like milk is cooling the system now tongue.gif


My configuration is with a i7-4770K and GTX 780. I'm using the original Swiftech radiator up top and the XSPC EX120 up front, all with Swiftech Helix fans.

With this setup, I was getting around 30C idle on CPU, 28C idle on GPU in a heated room that was around 30C (looking at the motherboard and hard drive temps). During gaming (Portal 2, League, Mirrors Edge), the GPU barely ever goes above 40C. Running Prime95, the CPU goes to mid 60C's. I've yet to overclock both CPU/GPU, so I'll be doing that as soon as I get my Silverstone short/flat cable set coming in tomorrow and report some further results.

1) Cant really say here I have my Asus P8Z77-I and it works great and matches color scheme

2) My watercooling gear is as follows:
- CPU Waterblock: EK Supremacy
- GPU Waterblock: EK GeForce GTX 670/EK GeForce GTX 670 Backplate
- Reservoir: EK DDC X-RES 100
- Fittings: Bitspower Shiny Silver Compression
- Tubing: Tygon E-1000
- Liquid: Mayhems Pastel Blue Berry, Deep Blue, UV Blue
- Rads: XSPC EX240 & 120
I would suggest looking into that

3) Silverstone I think is the only choice and as for the fan replacement that info can be found here:

Putting my Splash to work today. Have a big week at the office so I'm bringing it in as a rendering workhorse since it is faster than the Mac Pro we have right now smile.gif

I'm transporting it on the bus over my shoulder in a padded cooler bag.

Take that bigger cases!

Since I'm not full loop yet I managed to make a cardboard shelf at the top and crammed in 2x wd 10k raptors and a 7200rpm storage drive. All 3.5"
