Yeah. That's where I ordered mine. I'm refreshing my order status page frenetically in hope to see some indication like:
"shipping". So that I am able to sleep tonight with my mind at peace. But still nothing.

Hi people. I made some changes in my pc trying to lower the temps a little, so i share my results..

PC specs:

The machine consists in: 2600k@3800mhz / Asus asus p8z68-v / 2x8gb Gskill Ares@1866mhz / Nvidia Gtx680 AMP edition (zotac) / WD Black 750gb + WD Green 2tb + Corsair Neutron GTX 240gb (on the back) / Asus Xonar DX / Cooler Master Silent 700w

The cooling system: CPU block Alphacool Livingstone / GPU block Alphacool HF 14 universal copper edition / MAGICOOL 360 Ultra Radiator / MAGICOOL Slim MC-RADI280/ alphacool vpp655 pump (top speed)

The Fans: 3x120 Arctic-Cooling F12 1350rpm / 3x120 XSPC 2000rpm / 2x140 XSPC 1450rpm / 3x80cm FANs pointing to the Vram and VRM / 200mm NZXT stock fan.

Config change:


*As you can see, in the config 1 the front rad is in push/pull and the top rad only in pull. The hdds bay is covering some of the bottom intake hole (big mistake), and recives some air from one pull fan of the 360 rad. All the fans are set in 7v, except for the 3x120 XSPC 2000rpm, those are set at 5v.

*In the config 2 the 360 rad (45mm) is placed in the top, only in push (it barely fits, one of the fans is bent) and the 280 rad is now in the bottom of the case, taking advantage of the only unrestricted intake chance. The front 200mm NZXT fan has been added in front of the HDD bay as an intake, and one 120 fan is placed as outtake. This config was tested in 5v and 7v.

*All the tests were made at 25ºC of room temp.

Results:




My advice, DO NOT cover the bottom hole, and if you can use it as intake.

Wow great job trying multiple configs and posting well displayed results. This should help some members plan their loop. Most unrestricted intake is always your best shot! Well done

I would like to join club!

Here is what I tried so far, similar results to everyone else...



My HACKINTOSH build:
NZXT H440
Asus M6H
4770K with Corsair H105
Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB Windforce
4x4GB =16GB Corsair Vengeance
Samsung 512gb PRO SSD
Corsair 850 RM (oversized I know, should bought RM650/750) although fan never comes on
2tb Green WD
500gb Seagate

My Idle Temps with HWMonitor:
CPU Package around 30 - 35 C

My issue is with the GPU DIE Temps,it IDLS at 51C even with Top and Front off case.

Today I tried the following:
1) Moved the two HDD bays to the top of H440 bays, removed unused hdd cages thinking air flow would push across to GTX770, NO CHANGE IN TEMPS
2) Removed bottom 2 nzxt fans put in one SP120L (Fans that came with H105) in middle spot and hooked fan to case, forcing air over to gpu (main was it loud but you could feel the air moving) NO CHANGE IN IDLE TEMPS
3) Removed side, Top, Front even back NO CHANGE IN TEMPS

So now, I put everything back to stock config.

I was wondering if Nvidia or MAC released the driver with a big change?

Other thing I will porb try still is reversing the rear fan as a intake, I did this on my CM Storm Enforcer with H60(previous case) and saw a reduction on cpu temps. I assume it will not help with GPU Temps, my temps were cooler with the 200mm front and top fans in the CM Storm Enforcer.

I feel at this point the only way to cool down my GTX770 is trying to get my hands on the NZXT G10 GPU bracket to allow water cooling...

2. Yes, the middle green plug, L-out

3-4. I'm not familiar wit that msi app and drivers. I just load the amd catylist drivers and call it good for amd cards. No need for the rest of it.

5-6. If there is no fast boot option in bios try each fast boot driver you listed and see which one works best for you, I've done msi boards but this I haven't come across

7. sleeved extensions serve 2 purposes. 90% of the time just for looks, sometimes a build needs the actual extra length. I would purchase extensions of your choice since the h440 can hide the extra slack well

What questions about fans?

as far as routing the audio cable its really hard in a case like that. Is there a hole behind the psu below the audio post? try jamming it up through there and putting psu back

1) so... with my previous question regarding extension cables... if i dont want to have my cable sleeved but i want my cable to look like the picture i quoted above... can i use extension cables instead? if i buy these kinds of extension cables....
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=34_804&zenid=e10837679ed52c2bc32137c97397a081 how do i use it? is PSU >> Modular Cable PSU >> NZXT Extention Cable >> Motherboard the correct order on using it...?

2) regarding fans,, so as mentioned previously, i went and build my PC after 6 weeks-ish of youtube-ing and reading from zero... So far I’ve only been using the 2 fans supplied by the case. Based on youtube videos, I plugged it directly to the board on the plug written SYSFAN1 and SYSFAN2. From my MSI command center I can control the fan from 50~100%.
=> My Q is... if i add up 4 more fans, where should i plug it in? i think i noticed the board only have 2 or 3 SYSFAN plugs. Is this the situation where PSU molex cable created for?
=> What's the difference between the fans plugged into the board SYSFAN plug directly and to molex connector? Can i still control the fan speed either way?
=> Is there any way to make the fans move lesser than 50%?

Apparently that board works, but you'll have to remove the rubber grommets and cover the exposed metals from the chassis with electrical tape.

Ugh i guess I'll have to consider it. I like my maximus iv gene z but I really want a bit of space between my sli setup. Plus the formula has that nice water block MOSFET cooler
