You and the others motivated me.
I placed an order this week for some goodies. I enjoyed placing the order, I can not say the same for my card though biggrin.gif
Hopefully everything comes by Friday so I can play with the rig this weekend and get everything taken apart rolleyes.gif Unless, of course, you want me to send to you so you can do it bike.gif

Hey guys, I've just destroyed my MSI G45 and I'm looking at getting a Maximus VI Formula board, tomorrow. However the one thing that irks me about it is the lack of a 90 degree 20 pin USB 3.0 header. How have people got around this? Is there a 90 degree adapter I can get for it?

My USB header is so tightly cable managed with the rest of my wires I really don't want to unclip everything for the sake of pulling the wire through, that and it'll look really untidy!

Thanks for any help guys. smile.gif

Will that work for you?

That would definitely work, it just looks horrific!

I'd have to sleeve it, and paying £12 for something like that from HK just hurts me. rolleyes.gif

I can't work out why no one else is selling a nice adapter for these 20 pin USB headers. =(

Yes, if somebody made one of those, you know they would sell pretty well.

I thought the same thing looking at that thing... pretty ugly the way it comes.

LEDs anyone?





These are both through the smoked side panel.

So does everyone think the crosschill block is safe with copper? I'm gonna water cool my m6f with pastel red, and I want to make sure its safe, and I'll have no corrosion issues.

I've been using the crosschill block with alphacool rads and EK Nickel-Plexi blocks for something like 8+ months (was built the week the board was released......) and used Mayhems Pastel red also, I've had zero issues, even tore down the loop in February to check things, they looked just like they did on day one, so I poured the coolant I took out of the system back into it after straining through a coffee filter to make sure there was no debris.

On a side note, go check out the mayhems thread if you have not yet http://www.overclock.net/t/1286896/mayhems-users-club
And depending on your rads, do a VERY thorough cleaning of them, EVEN IF THEY ARE NEW. Pastel is very ph sensitive. So I would recommend you read what @Mayhem has recommended to do for a good rad cleaning!!

The crosschill block is made of ANODIZED aluminum, not bare aluminum, it has more resistance to corrosion than almost any part of the rest of a WC loop, including nickel plated blocks!!

I've had mine running for a while, no issues so far.
