As said only thing thats wrong with the AX860 is the coil whine problems but again its not every unit that have that problem

I'm sure that Antec is a good psu but the length of it is a concern for me in the 350D. I just don't want it covering the grommets.

It is 7.5" long while the corsair is only 6.3". The EVGA one does look about the same size as the Corsair, maybe a tad longer.

I have a question about the 4930k...Is Costa Rica the best location to have these chips from? I know when I had my i7 3770k the Costa Rica batches were the best.

Hope this is a winning lotto (I mean batch) number...

But I guess, from what I read, there's really no way you can gauge your chip's potential or performance off of batch numbers. I guess I'll just have to wait and see...

My case just got here....It is heavier than I thought it would be. That is a good thing. The construction is really solid. Props to Corsair. What a beautiful case. It will look even better when I'm done with it.biggrin.gif

Just a note, the AF series fans would not perform as well for your H110. For radiators, you would ideally go for the SP (Static Pressure) series if you want to stay with Corsair. Otherwise, I would recommend the Scythe Gentle Typhoon GT-15's. Other than that, I'm currently building a water cooled setup in a 350D as well. Would love to have your budget to upgrade to 2011 but that will have to wait biggrin.gif

I was thinking I might have to sacrifice a little silence for the higher rpm SPs....I'll try the AFs for a while and if they're under performing I might buy some SPs or even those new Aerocool DS Dead Silence fans. I heard those were pretty decent but I don't really know their specs.

The h110 has a fairly slim radiator so the AFs might be enough for it but when I move to a full watercooled set up, I will probably have to change the fans out.

It's not a small difference between the two, It's really worth changing the fans. They were not made for rads at all.

I noticed the new AF140s (the LED ones) have a lower CFM and slightly higher RPMs than the older ones: 1200 RPM 66.4 CFM vs 1150 RPM 67.8 CFM

Not an overwhelming difference though. hmmm.....

I like the LEDs and they're a little cheaper than the older ones. I might grab a few of them. What do you guys think...worth it?
