Awesome, thanks for the input smile.gif was just going by previous suggestions. I figured I would be fine with my HX750 as well but I just wanted to be sure!

As long as you aren't trying to do any major overclocking it should be fine. I have a small overclock on my cards. If I were to watercool them and push them farther then I would probably get a bigger PSU, but my system runs fine with my cards at 1176MHz stock voltages, i5 4.6 GHz @ 1.3v adaptive, and 2134MHz RAM @ 1.6v

My only overclock will be my CPU so I should be fine. I won't be overclocking the 770's. If I do then I'll look into getting getting a bigger PSU.

It's not very detailed to say the least so did some (probably bad) googling with no good results so now turn to all the friendly experts in this forum. smile.gif

1. CPU Fan is PWM so far all fine. The CPU Opt Fan connector is also PWM but can't be controlled can it? Or am I right in assuming all opt fan connectors get the same output as it non-opt counterpart?
2. Most case fans are 3-pin non-pwm fans so I thought the case fan connectors could somehow control the output voltage but that's not the case is it? Am I right in assuming I have to get PWM fans for the case in order to make full use of the M6F fan control feature?
3. I read that the CPU fan controller could provide a total of 1A but couldn't find any numbers for the other conectors. Anyone know if they're all 1A each?
4. Finally a curiousity question, how cam fan providers provide 3-to-4 pin adapters? The 3 pin fan connector fits fine on the 4-pin mobo doesn't it?

Cheers!

Well no takers on this one! I guess either you're as confused as me or you thinki t's too trivial and i should do my homework better. So I tried. wink.gif Did some better but still not good enough googling and tried to study the manual in more detail, so here's my current understanding.

Seems common internet knowledge is that it's a mimic of CPU_FAN and that you need to have a PWM fan in CPU_FAN for CPU_OPT to work. Seems reasonable so I believe it.

This is still a bit confusing to me, the headers are 4-pin but it seems common knowledge is that CHA_FAN headers are voltage controlled, i.e. only 3-pins used. So probably works just the way I want it to. And I am not secial so why shouldn't it? wink.gif

Also learned tat OPT_FAN headers are temp controlled and need optional temp sensors to work properly.

As far as I can tell the manual only specifies the CPU_FAN but the vote on internet is that all headers are 1A each. I assume that means I can connect all 4 chassi fans on my H440 to the included fan hub and the hub to one of the CHA_FAN headers on the board. As the 120mm is rated 0.16A each and the 140mm is rated 0.18A, i.e. total current needed 0.64A. Or?

Assume it's just to fill up the header...

That's it for now guys. Soon time to unpack and verify. Case to be picked up today. biggrin.gif

I will be building an almost identical system! Main difference is I have a single 770 ATM.....and my build is still a month off due to cash issues, and waiting for parts sales smile.gif

I found a link to a PSU calculator, and after plugging in everything, I came out at 497W for a single 770. Add 230W for a second one, and you're really pushing your HX750.

Personally, I went with the AX860i as a hedge against future SLI......but heck, if you want to give that 750 a shot, let me know how it works!

Here's the PSU calculator...

*edit* And Jack will be happy to know, I ditched my H100i cooler before I even have my rig built......just preordered the Swiftech H220X.

The 750 will be fine. Heck a 450 is fine for a single 780 Ti. He's not overclocking the cards so there should not be any problems as long as the PSU is a good quality one.

The only time it even came close to 450 was during the OCCT test, which under normal conditions nobody will ever push their system that hard.

There's also this: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_770_sli_review,4.html

Their system with 770 SLI only pulled 505 from the wall. Granted that was with the CPU at idle, but throw in 150 watts which is probably the most the CPU would pull, and you're still only pulling 655. Their system overall also probably pulls more than a typical system since it is using a 3960X.

Anyone have any idea as to why the Asus Service center address I shipped my board too is listed as "Best Logistics USA" here is where I was told to ship my RMA

ASUS Service Center
Attn: RMA Dept., RMA# REMOVED
5670 Stewart Avenue
Fremont, CA 94538

I decided to Google the address because they have had my board since 8:00am yesterday and it is still not in their system according to the online help and all of the info on google shows this location as "Best logistics USA"

Sounds like they might have outsourced it to a local shop.

I had a similar experience with WD. If so, they'll have absolutely no diagnostic skills, so a replacement is the only fix.



Also - I've been practicing my photography whilst waiting for fittings to add my VRM crosschill to my loop:







Lighting appears key. When I get my LEDs installed, this rig should really pop.

Last I checked, "Best Logistics" was a transport/delivery service. The actual asus repair facility is in Jeffersonville Indiana
