Thanks - T


P.S. And yes, there is an MH10 project in the future, but it just got buried by a new pregnancy. My wife's, not mine. thumb.gif

You wouldn't lose to much performance with an overclocked FX8350 wink.gif

Isn't Intel moving onto a two year release schedule for desktops? I am pretty sure I read there would be no Broadwell for desktops, so if you end up waiting on the Intel side it will be another 2 years or so.

I was thinking more nex-gen LGA2011 instead of committing to a Haswell build that will suffer initially (unless I delid) from temps that aren't worth the money.
The only thing is, the board I have is EXACTLY the right color, and there's no guarantee that there'll be an orange-themed board for the next crop of X7_ stuff...



Thanks - T

Unless you spend over $500 on a cpu, the 2011 won't give you better performance than haswell. Also overclocking wise you wont get haswell really high anyway but it will still perform well. For example, http://www.3dmark.com/fs/867415 is haswell at 4.8 ghz, http://www.3dmark.com/fs/878593 is ivy at 4.8.

I still haven't bought a processor yet, so it's not final either way!

looking forward to see how you'll fit those rads in the case... btw, do you think that 360 rad would be fine if you use 240 instead of 280 at the top?

Well, the 140.2 and a standard 120.3 will work (not a cross-flow design), because for all I could tell, the only thing preventing fitment was that the inlet flange on what would be the "top" of the vertically oriented radiator would hit the top of the case and create the issue.

Now that I have another one coming (arrived at the local UPS store today!), I'll be able to make a little progress, hopefully... rolleyes.gif



Thanks - T

I see... I'll look forward to it.. do you think you can fit another 120 back there without making it too complicated?
