I had to push it in from the front drive bays to fit in the HAF X since my system was already installed. Maybe easier to install if you don't already have a mother board etc in the case.

I have the same case and I love it. It has much space to expand if you want. That x99 looks good in there. I'm a fanboy of MSI, Corsair and EVGA for the most part. They all make pretty good quality stuff. Congrats on your new rig man. Enjoy! thumb.gif

Thanks man. Honestly it was tight as hell. Almost didn't get it in there but figured it out. The drive bays arnt removable in the 760t unfortunately , and the hoses are pretty thick and back there. I'm
Pretty sure my Asus CD burner isn't going to fit and all my 5.25" bays are useless now but oh well. It's ok smile.gif

I love the build quality of the Predator also. All my parts are corsair and Asus including my mobo. Glad I went that route.

I do have a question. On my x99 pro does the PWN connector connect to the "cpu fan" connector on my mobo?

Just WOW! Excellent build quality, and impressive performance.

Was using a thermaltake water 2.0 pro. I delidded my 3770k, used CLU between ihs and die, used included thermal paste between ihs and predator. Preliminary testing shows at an overclock of 4.7ghz my temps during prime 95 have dropped from up to 90C to 70C. And it hasn't even hit 100% yet.

Seriously thank you EK, this is a sweet piece of equipment.
post #1557 of 7201
Good deal.

I'm kinda bummed my cd drive won't fit :/

Oh well I guess I'll plug it up when I need it.

Finished pics. For those who care smile.gif













Ram and processor going in tomorrow. Along with the uv lights, new fans and Windows 10 64 pro.

And then flight simulator smile.gif

Download the BIOS, save it to FAT32 formatted USB flash drive (very important with MSI from my experiences; otherwise it cannot read the content of the thumb drive), update it, reboot and see if it works then.

Best,

Running the latest BIOS (N3) for my motherboard (x99A Krait). PWM is working from both headers (confirmed using my PWM Hub for the case fans. Speedfan and BIOS are showing the RPM from the EK fan hub as being ~270 with slight variations but there is no change whatsoever when setting fan speeds.

I'll go ahead and flash with the same bios version and maybe kill a chicken over the computer ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶

Edit: As I thought no change whatsoever, ran a few benchmarks with and without speedfan running; no change in fan speeds. I can toss up a youtube video if you'd like to see how everything is hooked up on my system.

Looks great. Is there any reason you couldn't flip the predator horizontally? Have the pump and res at the rear of the case and leave you some room for your drive?
