I like the idea of having a completely separate but still accurate(I hope) system to monitor my temps during stress tests....when they get to full load there is no way it can be displaying the right temp 100 or even 90% of the time. So far the temperature monitoring is extremely responsive - almost instant. I'm just concerned with whether it is accurate or not. Need some moar testers!

The only thing I can't change is the CPU multiplier but I'm working the FSB at the moment anyway so it is great for that....don't need AOD or TurboV and all the associated services/processes they come with to change my OC settings while in windows....that has some value if you ask me

Well soon as I get my system back up and my 904 HA flashed over to Win 7 BIOS and upgraded to 64bit Ultimate, I'll be trying RoG connect, but since I can do everything in the BIOS anyway, I haven't really gone after it.

RoG connect seems like a nice feature to OC from another platform. Just need to work up the gumbtion.

Yea I thought it sounded cool when I was reading the manual(yes i did that ) but never thought I'd use it. However, I was wiring up a vandal switch for my pc and left the damn project at my work over the weekend last week and this was the only way to get my pc going w/o taking off the side panel, disconnecting 4 fans(to headers) then reconnecting, placing the side back on sans screws, only to find I once again didn't raise the Vcore enough to avoid a BSOD, lol. Do that a few times and you'll be just about ready to put a iROG case badge on your pc, lol.

Overall though I'd say it's a much faster way to fine tune your OC since you only need to reboot when you crash and not every time you want to bump your fsb or vcore by 1 notch, heh. Really hoping we can get some people to try this out if they haven't already and report back on temp differences. At idle, my CPU temp is 1c lower in RC Tweak than it is in Everest or PC Probe(don't ahve this installed atm but when I did it always matched everest), but when I get to a max LinX test the difference grows by about 6-7c. Big difference when Everest is telling me 60c(don't like that) and RC Tweakit is showing 52c(much better).

You are ok, just dont let it go beyond 60c. If you try the fixes you might be able to lower it or stick a fan to the NB and vrm. pc probe cut off is like 85c. my initial idle was 55c . did the mod and dropped to 50c, stuck a fan to it using the Zalamn FB123 kit, dropped to 45c, got the EK water block, dropped to the 30s now. btw the zalman kit is ~$10usd, a really good buy if you dont have a tower of a heatsink for you cpu, as it may cause interference. If you do, the antec adjustable fan is another alternative. good luck due

But I agree completely, the antec900 just doesn't cut it when you start getting aftermarket coolers and boards like the CHIV. I upgraded from the 900 to the haf 932 and felt like I was installing my components into a walk in closet.


The CHIV NB is actually reaaaalllyyy easy to take off if you don't have some sort of malfunction(like mavhis is having). I have had problems in the past with other mobo's heatsinks but was delighted by the ease the CHIVF dismantled with. But if you've got the patience you might as well wait for your new case so you only have to unhook everything once



BTW: Has anyone been using the ROG connect? I have it hooked up to my G50 right now and man so far I love it. Change FSB and volts and save profiles and not have to worry about losing them to a freeze...Can reset/start/clear cmos/shutdown my desktop from my laptop. That's great for me since I use my TV as a monitor sometimes for games and this allows me to be even lazier ^^ Anyway, my question, for those of you who have used this is....how accurate is the temperature monitor? It seems like it should be way more accurate when you're stress testing since the laptop will have all it's resources available still but just wanted to see your guy's results because I have a nearly 10c difference in temperature from Everest Ultimate to RC TweakIt(ROG connect). Everest and other temp monitors are higher(especially at full load) than the RC Tweak is showing....if it is the more accurate one than I'm thrilled and have been getting better temps with my new H70 than I thought initially.

Ya I am going to wait till I get my new case before I do the NB fix, think I'm going to go with the HAF 932 Black Edition cause I'm a sucker for a big side window.

The case has that big 230mm fan mounted at the top of the case and what I have read is that you can also mount a 120mm fan next to it so I'm thinking I might try and mount the Rad of my H50 there, by the way what is in everyones opinion the best 120mm fans for a push pull on the H50 rad?

You shouldn't have any problems mounting the H50 where you intend but you will most likely lose the very top drive bay(just the top slot)...not really a big deal with how many other slots you get ^^ not sure if you can mount it with push/pull and shrouds on both ends but I intend to try it with my H70 later today.

(check out the GIANT thread that probably has the answer to every question you can think of if you're willing to scour the 13 or 1400 pages ^^) link is in my sig
Scythe GTAP 15 has a large lead on any other fan if you're looking for a good DB/static pressure/cfm compromise. Yate loons are the probably the best in price point/performance(it's what comes with the h50 and h70's but not sure if you can get a slightly better one than they give you for the 4$ i hear mentioned in the h50 thread). I've got two Silverstone Air Penetrators in the mail now with their "unique" flow so i'm going to try those out probably monday and see if they live up to the hype. But that's me...I have man ears

Unfortunately antec900 has no cut-outs for the cpu or nb on the back nor probably the room to put one without some serious mods and judging by his hesitance to file the NB I figured modding the case was probably out of the question =D




So dang, I'm the only one using the ROG connection, huh?


My Antec 900 has a cut out for the CPU but not for the NB but I'm not even going to mess with this case any more, too small and wire management sucks the Sata ports on the Crosshair IV are lined up exactly where one of the motherboard tray wire management cutouts is and since the motherboard tray only has 2 cutouts you can pretty much cross one out cause of the Sata cables getting in the way, tired of trying to organize a computer in a show box


Also wondering has anyone been able to find some stand offs to buy the same size as the SB ones so you would not have to worry about shaving them down to the exact size needed?

slimbrady please let me know if your able to mount the rad on top, thanks

Ya I have seen folks using shrouds on there Rads, read it focuses the air through the rad better, I'm guessing I shiuld only need 1 shroud cause 1 of the fans is pulling the air through the Rad while the other one that would need the shroud is pushing the air through the rad, is that right?
