Can't see much skin but I am really liking this mobo.

Thought I'd bump this thread a bit biggrin.gif


If all goes as I hope the package with the bulk of the water cooling parts will finally arrive today for my Mark S build so that I can finally start to move forward with the project thumb.gif


Here are some pics that I took earlier in the year right after I got my case:

I've got mine ready, waiting on my awesome hof waterblock from Diamond cooling and still debating on if I want to pick up bitspower or eks cpu waterblock and gold plate it.. or just leave it white/nickel plated.

The case


The guts


The wires

I actually installed a Mark S in my white Phanteks Enthoo Primo last week. Looks fantastic, but do have 2 complaints:

1) The assistant fans. Can't make them spin any slower than 60%, still a little loud at that level, so thinking of taking them out.

2) The orange LED that lights up when the motherboard is powered. Going to cover it up with something --- just haven't figured out with what.

Otherwise fantastic board. And for what it's worth, it seems to have a better power delivery system than my old Asrock Z97 Extreme6. Haven't pushed it to the limits yet, but it's been stable at voltages which were previously unstable with the Asrock.

I only installed the assistant fan on the back I/O area and the only time that I can hear it is when I shutdown the system as it continues to run for up to a minute after shutdown. But I should say that I have 24 regular fans running in my system so that might be why I can't hear it, even if they aren't running at 100%. But I totally agree about the LED as in my CaseLabs S8 it's right up against the side panel window.
