[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 23

That's alot of exhaust fans, where are they all located?

I like the color theme of the case with the LED bars. Which brand did you use? Do they give off a fair amount of heat or do they stay relative cool?

For the exhaust fans, the two top vents were obvious choices for the enermax combo, as i can't fit a 38mm fan in there (i could have went to a 140mm, but the cfm difference is negligible). I could however JUST fit in a 38mm kaze on the back exhaust, it barely clears the 200mm side intake fan.
I used a single 12 Inch 2-wire red LED from logisis, it doesn’t seem to get very hot, although I haven’t really tested it. The UV tubes are cold cathodes from logisis as well, and they do emit a slight buzz, but that’s expected from something that requires very high voltage. I wrapped the inverter in electrical tape, and put it on a separate rail. They are both very bright, and if I want everything to glow only UV, I have to turn the side fan\
ed led down to low. But that’s why I set it up that way !

Sexy case you have there. Makes me want to dump my Antec 900 for some NZXT one, but then I remember the hassle of setting up the H50 and I cry.

I wish the H50 had an easier way to snap on like how my Zalman 8700 did. you just slide a bracket between it, push down, bam. Done. Used the AMD retention bracket, no twisting, tightening screws, etc etc.

I need a sexier case to compliment the motherboard though, so HAF 922, NZXT Tempest, or Apevia X-Cruiser 2.

Decisions decisions. Or I could just buy some damn cold cathodes and put my LED fans back in, I got no LEDs right now on my case.

Something i didn't understand when installing the H50, was why i couldn't use the stock back plate that came with the crosshair IV, but i went with what the manual said, regardless. Perhaps one day i'll change it if someone convinces me otherwise, it isn't that big of a hassle. Oh, forgot to give you a cpuz\\prime95\\everest shot of what im running atm. Still tinkering

Not sure, thinking about it. Just curious on how good the cable management is for that vs. the Tempest or HAF922...

Just saw the Hades on the shell shocker deal for Newegg too, unfortunately I have to get that or cancel my pre-order for Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer.

Guess I'll have to wait for a new case

the cable management in my scout is pretty good actually. if you want an info overload check out the CMSSC board.

I caved in this morning and bought the Armorsuit PC-P50R instead of waiting on the PC-8FIR to come out.
I just wanted to see what my new board will look like in this case when I get it.
