Start saving, the more this thing is used the faster things get.
BTW I'm getting closer to being done with my Lian Li, I got the side panel done. I cut it with a 45 degree bit on my router and I'm super happy with the way it turned out.

My 4 cougars and Ripjaw X RAM arrived.

3 hours 20 minutes later...

1) Stock fans all removed

2) PSU flipped over

3) Cables re-routed

4) Cougar Fans installed. Getting the front and heatsink fans in were the easiest. Getting the 120mm back fan using the rubber fasteners proved near impossible (they're much much shorter than the 140 mm fastners). I used the rubber fasteners to attach the clip for the Hyper 212+ to the other 120mm, but the clips looked a little loose, so I ended up using screws and the rubber pads provided by CM with the heatsink. The top was an adventure. Eventually I decided to insert the fasteners from the inside and pull up. Getting the ones inside the case were the pain.

The real issue: I didn't want to re-seat my heatsink so I left it in. Maneuvering around it was a pain.

5) Installed new RAM.

Initial reactions: seems quieter - because 3 of the 4 fans can be regulated, the machine actually sounds like a wind gust at start-up before all 3 fans slow down.

I had to unplug the top exhaust pronto because the clip on the 8 pin cpu power cable extension is sticking into the fan a bit, so I get a hideous rattle. Will try to file that down. For now the top exhaust is off.

Temps seem good. It's idling at 29-31 now, rather than 25-27. I wonder if that's the top exhaust being off, or the blademaster was better for the heatsink. I'll get back to you on this. I was seeing some absurd low numbers on load (using FAH)- like 49-50. After running it a while, I'm seeing a more expected 54-56.

The RAM has been a bit troublesome. My Sig RAM defaulted to 1333 9-9-9-24. By either enabling XMP profile or manually setting 1600, the timings would shift to 8-8-8-24. The Ripjaws default to some bizarre number just over 1600 and 11-11-11-24. If I manually set the DRAM frequency to 1600 rather than auto, I get some kind of voltage warning. So for now I'm set to XMP. That gets me 1600 9-9-9-24-128. That last number (tRFC) seems to be a little high...

Pictures forthcoming once I get the top fan working.
PICS!!!

That is normal for any ram that is running at 1600 but the XMP should default to the rated spec's. 1600 is a stock OC rating on 1333 ram. Just like the old days 800 ram was the default setting on ram, anything higher, you had to set it up in the bios to get the rated speeds and timings. Just go in the the bios and set everything to the rated setting including voltage. If you have an OC on your CPU you might have to set the IMC manually to make it stable or to keep the voltage down. With 1156 the IMC (integrated memory controller) is on the cpu because there is no north bridge anymore, the more ram and the faster the ram, the higher you need the IMC. Just like any MB they tend to default at a higher voltage than what is needed to be on the safe side for stability. The higher the voltage in the IMC the more heat you will create with the CPU.

Thanks Brother! The cut on the side panel was not an easy thing. Using the 45 degree bit shows everything on the cut. You have to make sure you are cutting at the same speed and with the same pressure or you will get a different cut. I was going to paint the inside of the case, but with the red LED's mounted, I'm not use if I will. It looks so nice in there now, almost like a candy red.

UPDATE
So where to start, ive been a busy lad putting a few ideas foe my mod and came up with this.
Bought some grill, gold i know but nothing i can spray.
All cut with my trusty dremel.took me two attempts to shape

All i need to do now is cut some steel to mount two 140mm coolmaster fans on the front adn cover with 3M di-noc before mounting my new front grill.

Will keep you updated

....uh-yup, I reckon that's what the hornets nest sound was coming from.

Had two of these ziptied to my 5770 rolleyes.gif Damn! These are little beasts! Problem is, the Rosewills I got to replace them aren't doing the job mad.gif Might have to go back to the Vantecs. I bought them 10 years ago and they're still blowing everything away thumb.gif
