Crosshair IV formula arrived and everything is good except the crappy TT psu is spinning the fan non stop and Its shutting off randomly. This happened with the old system. I picked up some used nzxt hale-90 m units off ebay for cheap, two 750w and one 1kw. These are not the v2 units which seem to have some rather bad qc issues. I'll chain one of the 750w with the 1000w unit for my system and the other 750w unit will power the second system. The 750s were cheap as they came bare w/ no cables/cords. I have a bunch of spares so it wasn't a biggie. The 1kw came w/ all cables and i can use these or the extra CM V-series cables I have as well. They're all 160mm long which will clear my loop and they're white to fit the build. The new mb came w/ a 965BE and 8gb of ddr3 as a bundle and everything is much faster then the old am2 ddr2 setup. I may offer this as a freebie in the market. Hyper 212 evo still working well, though I'm tempted to use a couple of sp120 hp fans. At 7v, a single sp120 hp is cooler then the stock CM "xtraflo" fan at 12v.
The seller had the 850w unit available as well, but its got the extra fixed cables like the 1kw unit. So I chose two 750w as they only have the mb and cpu cables fixed. Guy should have some more if anyone is interested and the reviews are pretty solid for these guys (hale-90 ending in "M") and does offer a return period.
-Cpu got shipped and should be in hopefully this week. USPS is being hampered by bad weather on the east coast so I won't be surprised if its delayed.
-More drama w/ the ocn-market issue. Though this time its usps' fault and I can't get a hold of their customer service. This one is really pissing me off as anything that happens is just two-steps back (
-Plug's are marked as shipped but the DHL tracking doesn't work until they package is scanned in the US.
Other then this stuff, I'm thinking of doing half the rings on the fans in red and the other in white. Should fit more properly in the them. Since I do have to pull the rads to change the screws, it won't be such a big deal.
