post #1831 of 2409
There's plenty of room between gpu and the fan. However, the fan width directly takes away from the max height of the cpu cooler. Since it's a sleeve bearing fan, it's easy enough to take it apart, paint the fan, and put it back together like I did.

Just put together my bro's build last night in a Vulcan case. Didn't go quite according to plan.

1) Should've went semi-modular, these wires are everywhere

2) CM Hyper 612 is just TOO BIG for this case. We had to either cut the case door or move the gpu to the second pcie slot

Pictures incoming when I upload them tomorrow

mines non modular, I'm using FSP AURUM 600W... with a bit of patience you can tuck those cables at the back. some of the cables should be tucked at the sides for them to fit and to be able to close back panel...1 cable is tucked neatly below my HDD.

Microcenter was having a sale on this one:

PC Power & Cooling 750w

So we've got extra PCI cables, extra molex, and extra sata to stuff somewhere. We might be able to get them back there. Does that bulge on the back panel handle thicker wires pretty well?

Thanx bro! That word is the most honorable for me!

G.Skill recommends 3570K and 3770K for Trident X
BUT 3570K is not really compatible.
You can check Newegg reviews. I'm one of the reviewers.
This Trident X series have so many compatibility issues.
If you have luck Malaysia made 3570K might work w/ Trident X.
In my case, my 3570K (Costa Rica) doesn't even post BIOS.

BUT one good news.
This is after Apogee Drive Ⅱ and Ripjaws installation.
450
The gap is about less than 1/8" or so.
So, Trident X does not even fit anyways. lol



Update
I'll place EX240 on the top of the case, So I'm worried about dust.
I was supposed to recycle BP 240 Radguard but
450
Not only the size problem
because of multiport plugs
450
I can't even screw it down. lol





So, I made it.

Do you guys like it?

im digging the Di-Noc carbon on the rad grill. very nice thumb.gif. keep em coming!

EDIT: i read the reviews on newegg and found that whole mess to be quite strange and yet informative. G.Skill should be more informative by stating that at those speeds, the majority of i5 cpus are not compatible. they should state that i7 cpus are rated for use with those speeds and newegg should probably update their page to reflect that!

though this is the first i have read about the issue. there may be threads and barking dogs all over the net.
