Now, I do have my 655 running off my FC9, but I'm using dual inputs (2x3 pin to 4 pin) with 18 gauge wire to 2 outputs on the FC9. The weak point is the 3 pin connectors, though. The MCP655 (mine) pulls 1.8A wide open, or about 22 watts. That's a lot for a single 3 pin connector to handle. I pulled out that fan hub and threw it in a box with other stuff I pulled off the Switch and use 2 fan controllers instead.
Nice info. I ended up using molex to 3 pin connectors for my Kuhler 620 pumps and the CPU PWR (4 Pin, It's on max in bios.. hope that's good enough) for my DDC pump.
I have further narrowed down my cause of fairly high temps, a civil war for air. When I leave my case side off, my temperatures are about 3 to 5c cooler. The reason is my Kuhler 620's on my 580's with a push pull fan configuration intake from the case and exhaust out the front. The EX360's configuration is push air from within the case out the top. I feel reversing either of these fan configuration's would be to no avail. If I pulled outside air through the EX360 into the case, it would then go through my kuhler rads. If I reversed the kuhler's fans, it would dumb substantial amounts of heat which would go through the EX360. If I pulled in from both of them, I would not be able to dump the heat out fast enough just through the back (if I closed my side panel)
I could not articulate my thoughts as well as I wanted to right there ^^ hope it's understandable.
I will say this, This 2700k is amazing. I'm running clocks at almost 0.100v less than my 2600k could. (1.265v vs 1.350v on 2600k for same 4.6Ghz)
