Yup the full coverage block won't swap over. frown.gif

But the positive of V over IV is that the SB is not connected to NB. Which I think irritates the NB temps and makes it get hotter. I'm still wanting h2o but I'm tempted to sell this board and take the money from the sale of my Netbook and grab V. But I'd definitely wait for V to land at the Egg. Should have a better price at that time.

But it's a hard choice since I'm already on an RoG board. There are some things I like but that Heatsink(even separated from SB) isn't one of them. mellowsmiley.gif

I hear ya there! I didn't go with a complete cover yet so that's not an issue for me at least and really don't seem to have any problems with NB temp either thank god, HOLY CRAP lights just flickered, we have some bad ass storms coming in off lake Michigan with 70 mph winds, hail and lightning just on the horizen. Time to go! Have to continue this later

I feel you. I actually contemplated not putting my CHIV under water, but I figured if I'm gonna drop any money on new components, it'll be a bulldozer chip, and I'll just run it in my CHIV, so I went ahead and bought the full cover block. I can't justify spending that much money when I have a perfectly good mobo that supports bulldozer. That being said, I think the CHV looks smexy.

I agree... I figure on waiting between 6-12 months to see what happens overall. This will allow time for people to get their personal reviews/experience up on the forum boards. In essence, I want to be conservative on this.

Beside... with wife having been laid off, finances are gonna be tight for a bit anyway.
post #10336 of 13131
Sorry to hear bout ur wife kah...

Well right now atleast our board support BD.. Thats good enough..

Till they put something good about those boards im not goin to buy 1...

If they pull 1 or 2 unique stuff that will benefit overclocking capabilities before ill be looking to get..

But for now im on save money mode for the best BD thats comin out...

Thanks on the wife. She's been working for over 27 years now. Never been laid off. Never been fired. Never had to quit... and now this. She has no clue how to face this. Oh well, I welcomed her to the real world! But she'll be fine. Tough lady... Whirlwind Frying Pan champion of the WORLD!

On the BD thing, that makes sense and will probably be my final action as well, just get the BD and that will be that.

======================

On another note and to all in general... The Formula manual states under the fan section that 24 watts is the maximum. Per individual fan header or between all fan headers???

Well, although im tempted to jump on a CHV just for the octocore, im gonna wait to see how the 4 core performs in gaming against the octo.

If there's no massive difference in games between the 4 core and 8 (Which there shouldn't be, same arch and no game is going to use 8 cores let alone 4) I'll just get the 4 core and put it in my CHIV:E.

Not an expert on the matter but my uncommon common sense says there should be a bigger performance jump between a quad core and an octo than could/would be between a hexa and an octo core. Just an opinion though for which I have no real data to back up. BUT... the plan you have makes sense as well.
post #10340 of 13131
If its between 5-10% then ill stick with the quad or maybe go for the hexa, depending on the power needs and how they overclock etc. Cause apparently the Octo needs an extra 4pin on the mobo. Only thing is, sure the Extreme has two in the form of molex but im sure those are routed to provide extra juice to the gpus and wont do crap for extra cpu volts or stability.

Still have to see how things work out and wait for benchmarks and compatibility results, then we'll know for certain.
