I mounted my Primochill 240mm res to the bracket today after some drilling exercises. Fits nicely with ample room both on top and at the bottom.

As long as you are okay with it, that is all that matters. But back to EKs new block. It would have been nice if they did what they did for Hero/Gene, just come out with the the VRM block, and if someone wants to buy the SB block, let them.

I will admit, the formula is one of the best looking mobos out there in the market.


Oh on the pumps, the setup you have it really nice. The swiftech dual combo thingy performs really well, without needing any other tops. My main reason for the DDC pumps is the small form factor. Less space + power = win for me.

You are right about the M6F. I loved that mobo, good looking, great bios. Unfortunately I had to give it up because this build was for a Hackintosh and newer ASUS boards are not very Hackintosh friendly.

You hit the nail on the head .... I appreciate hearing what peeps picked and why. Somethings peeps come up with are "Sheet, I never thot of that". If this was a fun box (careful there guys), I'd have a 35x.

It is gorgeous tho..... was just on phone with Asus .... system wasn't keeping time.....he tells me to take out CMOS battery and and he'll hold..... year rip out WC system. take off all components, remove thermal armor, rebuild ..... hang on I'll be right w/ ya smile.gif

Then he said to load new BIOS and to "find the clear CMAS button first...oh I'm sorry, your system doesn't have one". I guess I better relabel the one on the back I/O panel then smile.gif

Grrrrrr..... anyway .... all my OC's were borked this morning ..... none passed RoG bench anyway .... cleared CMS and time seems to be working..... rerunning stress tests now....seeing 1.152v so far on 4.2 Ghz (still on Auto for voltage) so looks like an improvement. Didn't solve my PWN issue tho....still not dropping fans below 1000 rpm no matter what .... gonna try a temp sensor and see if that helps.

Yeah, I use anodized aluminum extensively in waste water treatment tanks and chemical storage areas, salt water environs...... I wasn't concerned after seeing it hold up to that ...and if it does corrode, it will give up to the other metals so that's on Asus ..... all I'll have to do is clean out the fuzz it left on other components.

Question (for anyone):

After everything was borked today, time , OCs .... i started over from scratch .... using Auto everything till it gets in the way ..... explain this one

Stock, everything Auto
DDR3 = 1600
Vcore = 1.248 max during RoG Bench
DRAM - 1.671 (set at 1.65)
Temps (max) = 54, 56, 49, 48
Temps Idle = 26 - 27

4.0, everything Auto
DDR3 = 1600
Vcore = 1.216 max during RoG Bench
DRAM - 1.677 (set at 1.65)
Temps (max) = 54, 55, 49, 50
Temps Idle = 32 - 36

4.2, everything Auto
DDR3 = 1600
Vcore = 1.152 max during RoG Bench
DRAM - 1.677 (set at 1.65)
Temps (max) = 55, 55, 49, 49
Temps Idle = 31 - 35

Ok, now ya know my question..... Vcore going down w/ clocks go up???

EDIT:

Here's the rest ......

4.4, everything Auto except switched to Adaptive
DDR3 = 1600
VID = 1.175
Vcore = 1.292 during RoG Bench
DRAM - 1.677 (set at 1.65)
Temps (max) = 64, 62, 60, 56
Temps Idle = 29 - 31


4.5, everything Auto except switched to Adaptive
DDR3 = 2400
VID - 1.287
Vcore = 1.328during RoG Bench
DRAM - 1.677 (set at 1.65)
Temps (max) = 68, 66, 62, 59
Temps Idle = 26 - 29

4.6, everything Auto except switched to Adaptive
DDR3 = 2400
VID = 1.38
Vcore = 1.392 / 1.408 during RoG Bench (0.5 sec peaks to 1.424)
DRAM - 1.677 (set at 1.65)
Temps (max) = 76, 71, 69, 63
Temps Idle = 27 - 30

OK, it's 4 am ..... I got all my OCs done before midnite ....and been working on fans / pump speeds.

At the start of the day, all my fans ran at about 1050 rpm and min pump speed was over 3000 rpm.. .... nothing i did in the BIOS would change that. So I tired FanXpert2 and had no luck there either........ so i tried running the "Fan Tuning" Feature and low and behold I got the pump to run at 1400 rpm ..... however it would recognize that fans existed.

So I tried tuning it w/ just one fan connected and that seemed to work..... but as soon as I connected them all back up.... we were at 1232 rpm..... couldn't make it go away, even uninstalled AiSuite. After 3.5 hours of troubleshooting .... here's what i discovered..... I can connect 7 fans to that PCB thingie (5 rads, 2 front and 1 rear) and I get PWM control..... as long as the 12V power is disconnected. As soon as I connect the 12V power..... all fans go to full speed.

Can anyone confirm or is this just me.

I'm considering this case for an upcoming build, and I have a simple question.

How hard is it to swap out (and does Phantek offer them) the blue LED's for another color? The LED fans are obviously easy to swap out, but I was more concerned about the blue LED? on the one side.

Look forward to seeing it! thumb.gif

Well, with 8% off from FrozenCPU and free shipping, I just couldn't resist.

Now to look over those LED links and pick up some white (or orange if I can find them) strips. Then I think I might convert my "Muzzle Flash" over to this case when I switch from flexible tubing to rigid acrylic tubing.

Glad to be a part of the group.
