Thanks for that mate, I'll look into it. What about the RAM, I should be able to go x6 2Gb chips @ 2000Mhz without any issues, shouldn't I? Providing I get the chips that it says on the spec sheet (though I imagine Gigabyte don't update these when they release new BIOS versions), which means I'll probably have to stick to Corsair (which aren't bad, though I've heard G. Skill are really good also, better than Kingston)

My z-5500 speakers have an SPDIF hole on the main control unit, if I get an SPDIF cable can I plug it into the motherboard-will it work? and will the sound be better than just selecting the regular Direct 5.1 setting with the 3 colored wires?

Dear Acceptu:

Is that EK water block working better for you and did you do a temp comparison using the regular built in water block and then use the EK water block? Let me know... Thanks...

Dear Madhatter:

Just wanted to let you know that I'm currently using the Siig USB Soundwave 7.1 Pro. I also bought a MonsterCable Optical Cable and directly plugged it into the speaks and then pressed the Input button and it works perfectly and separates all channels nicely. I did this because I use both Windows 7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4. But I mainly use Mac OS X...

Don't know if that helps, but I hope it did...

Dear Longie:

I would just call Gigabytes Tech Support and ask them. It should work, but I don't know it's limit when it comes to MHz. I'm using Corsair 12GB @ 1600MHz and I have my i7 930 to 4.09 so the max I'm getting from my RAM is 1560MHz. Which is just fine for what we do in our video production work. And for gaming; forget it, it's awesome !!!

Dear PunkNugget

Yes it is the ek water block, I did not think of doing any comparisons, wish i had now, i got it because the reviews said that it was not designed well and of course it look's better, even though i don't have a windows and it looks a mess atm.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...-review-6.html.

If you use the hose tails that come with the h20 220 they leaks because the thread is to long so I had to purchase shorter ones.

I love this case as it is so quiet and with the fan control already configured the lid on the top make it seem so clutter free and so easy to use.
