Hey everyone!
Been lurking and reading this thread for the last 3 weeks while I was researching the parts for my new build. Well I got the CPU last the other day(core i7 980x ftw!) and started putting it together.

I got a few questions about the H50 installation though.

-I noticed that you put 2 strips of adhesive tape on the bracket behind the motherboard to keep it attached to the board while you insert the retainer ring on the top side of the board. I was worried about that because the tape went over a row of pins on the underside of the board. I'm not sure what they call them but it's those sharp silver spikes that go through the PBC board. Well the adhesive tape would lay right on top of a row of those and was worried if it would cause a short of some sort(the tape is rubber based right?)

-Do I have to use the adhesive tape? My case has a removable motherboard tray and can be layed on it's side with no problems. I had to return my motherboard because it wouldn't boot and I had to take it apart again. I get my replacement tomorrow(amazon free overnight shipping ftw again!).

-I also noticed that when I removed the water pump from the top of the CPU that the thermal paste was at least 95% intact so it looked like it was just smudged a little bit on the top right part of the cpu where it left a tiny bit of it on the cpu which I cleaned up with a paper towel. Would it be ok if I just left it like it is and just put the water pump back on like it is when I get my new board? I have some MX-2 arriving from amazon tomorrow too btw.

When I put it together the first time and turned on the power it lit up like normal but didn't get a beep from the speaker and the motherboard LED showed a "b8" or "68" code. I looked it up and it seemed like most people online think it has something to do with the memory sticks. I'll know tomorrow either way since I have 1 pair of 6GB DDR3 from kingston and 1 from OCZ both are on the compatable list.

-One last question. I attached a picture of some screws one of my friends got me at home depot. They seem to fit just fine but the only difference is these have a sharp end and was wondering if it's ok if I use these to attach one of my fans to the other side of the rad. I will be using 2 cooler master R4's in a push/pull exhaust configuration.

I'm sorry for the huge wall of text. Just wanted to get all my questions out of the way. I've had a lot on my mind lately.
You...you have a thermaltake level 10... Please...share your experiences with it. I haven't seen anyone else on the forums with it! :O AND START THE THERMALTAKE LEVEL 10 CLUB!

Yeah, I got in back in mid january. I wish I would have waited till the first week of february though. Newegg had it listed but you could only get it with a ridiculous combo that included 2 blu ray drives which made no sense at all. Then in the first week of february, newegg had it available to be sold alone for about $100 cheaper than I bought it in january.

Anyway, the case has been a total pleasure to work with. I had to RMA my motherboard yesterday and had to disassemble the whole build which I thought was going to be a chore but it was easier than I thought. The removable motherboard tray is awesome. I plan to install my components with the tray outside the case and then hook it up my psu and then see if it will actually boot this time. cable management is very easy too. Especially compared to my antec 900 which looks like an overgrown jungle. It's because of the non-modular power supply though.

One thing I wish is that they should have kept the shiny exterior of the concept models and pictures when they first showed it. But the matte finish of the final version is ok. At least it's not a finger print magnet.

A Level 10 club would be cool but it would be a tiny one that's for sure. Plus it would be filled with haters. But as they say "Haters gonna hate".

Actually, for the size of the community I'm amazed at how little trolling/flaming/hating goes on here.

Wish I had a better camera to take pictures with. When I take them with my phone it just looks like a big blotch of cords when in reality it's far from it.

That's why I like OCN. Haven't seen anybody in an argument since I've joined.

well so far my cpu is running 10*C cooler then when I had the Arctic Chiller 7... idle is about the same but under full load (a3 core folding on all 4 cores 100% load) it has only reached 44*c. so far I am loving this cooler.

I believe he stated he was using a Arctic Chiller 7 previously to installing the H50 and that's what he did/change to get the positive results

I'm not sure about him, but I found that mounting it in the front using 2 x 120mm fans as push and 1 x 120mm fan as a pull (as an intake vs exhaust) lowered my load temps by 6C.
