Add me to the club if you have room. I will just copy/paste my post from [H].... Although I am in the process of changing cases. Ordered a Corsair 540 Air and I am going to water-cool that CPU/GPU. Damn thing sounds like a hurricane. I managed to OC it to a stable 4.4 but every time I reboot I have to manually go in and re-select the Intel SSD or I get a blue screen failed to boot error - device failed to start. Anyone know whats going on here? It is already selected when I go in but if I don't select it and hit enter again - blue screen.
Just finished (for the most part) my build with this case. Not a lot of room in here and had to make some modifications and remove anything I wasn't going to use. I plan on shortening the cables (brother can make them to length for me) and adding water cooling to that Kingpin, somehow. I had to put the GPU in the outer PCI-e slot - does that matter as far as performance goes? My Corsair H100i has the noisy pump issues. Planning on calling Corsair Monday about it. I bought the 4770k and done a delid - temps rocking 30, 30, 28 & 30. Planning on seeing where this chip lands for overclocking.
