But at the ~$200 price range Gigabyte and MSI are the boards I'd go for.

And ultimate enthusiast is such a close call between MSI and ASUS, I just think the Gigabyte top of the range model is too expensive IMO biggrin.gif


Would have to throw EVGA and ASRock in as some choices for various builds but not as much as I generally prefer MSI and Gigabyte and ASUS.

Anyway, what I was saying before is that I think sure you may pay a bit extra for the sabertooth because of the armor but comparable motherboards to the Gigabytes are defintitively not "generally $50 cheaper.

biggrin.gif
TRUE TRUE and Jeremy Clarkson always wins my heart, goddamn i love that genius son of a beech, HAMMER!!!

So yeah true dat not cheaper than all boards but they do have some great prices normally on most of their boards, you definitely pay for what you get 100% not saying that other brands doesn't do that, just that i notice it.

And yeah man i love micro itx and mini atx best and ASUS sure makes those like no others can i can only agree. Would be awesome to have a media server that is only like the size of your head biggrin.gif

And Gigabytes ultimate top end board on the 1150 chipset right now is the Z87X-OC Force which has a VERY expensive price tag, but they of course have a stripped down version of it called just the Z87X-OC. The only thing i like about their top ends is when you buy the barebone version of the highest end you don't feel like you get ripped of on features, i just feel like that on some of ROG boards, but i still love them don't get me wrong i really love em.thumb.gif

I think its your CPU as well, have you tried to test with a replacement.. find out what socket your mates have or even give a few computer shops a call and see if they have a test CPU which you could bring your rig to them and test.. this is what I would do, cheaper than buying a whole new rig..

With filters and dust, you have to make the decision to either except the dust and clean your machine all the time or have dust filters and deal with the restricted air flow. Normally when you put an air filter on your system will go from positive air pressure to negative due to the air restriction, so air will start to come in from places where your dust filters are not located. and the 600T is no where near air tight. All I can say is clean your filters everyday, and if you have radiators you will want filters as it is a royal pain in the @*** cleaning them. Don't forget to get your computer off the floor if you can.

Killeg, I have a Red/White/Black themed build tongue.gif But the Matrix 7970's LED spoils the color unfortunately...the only time the whole rig's color match is when I load the GPU to have the LED change to dark purp/red haha

Hey guys, First ever post on this forum. I've actually had this case for a long time... basically when the 600t SE first came out, or had its first rebate sale i beleive in 2009 ($180-20 rebate). Pretty crazy how prices seem to have just dropped recently... Never had a respectable rig inside nor did i know about this site/forum. Recently upgraded the insides from a micro atx pentium duo core 2.5 ghz to:

an AMD Phenome II X4 965 processor 3.4ghz
with the Zalman cnps 9900 max-b 135mm heat sink.

Asus Sabertooth 990FX r2.0

with 4x4gb Corsair vengeance 1600 mhz ddr3 ram

Thermal take SP-750M Smart M series 750 (modular eco friendly psu)

Sapphire 100352-3L Radeon HD7970

Im not too big on the use of these forums, so i figure i'll put everything in on my first post.

A little bit about me, so you know where I'm coming from. I appreciate computers, computer hardware, and the endless possibilities and capabilities with computer rigs. I built my first rig in the 7th grade back in 2000 with remaining pc parts found in my computer class. I am not one to spend a gazillion dollars on my rig, just so it can light up fancy and be running uber low temps while Overclocking to the max. I just like making solid build based on the current technology while focused heavily on cost factors. I mean... look at what my "recent" upgrade is. And yes, this is my definition of "future proofing" myself with a solid gaming rig... which is also hopefully the last build of my life...

my computer overview:

okay... so now that you guys know me and my 600t, i would like to ask a question. I did a search on this thread and found one related post, which was a person asking about a 250mm fan fitting on the side mesh panel using the 16 available holes for case fan screws. PLEASE, someone answer this question!!!! Which brand and any modifications you were required or not required to use. It doesn't have to be a 250mm either. I just want the biggest one available. I know a 200mm can fit using zip ties, however i would like to utilize the rubber grommets for a more snug fit, and a quieter operational system.

the few fan options i am looking into are listed below: i just bought a DEMCiflex filter for it. I didn't like the price, but I'm hoping it is as good of a product as they advertise.

option 1
4x COOLER MASTER R4-L2R-20AC-GP 120mm Blue LED Case cooler
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103060
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103052

option 2
4 fan set buying 2 of the corsair 120mm fans
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181027

option 3
using only one fan with the the biggest size option, so far i've done research on manufacturer's website on these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835705056
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835706002
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007998%20600339700&IsNodeId=1&name=230mm

so, my goal is to make use of my side mesh panel for cooling purposes. I want to spend the least amount of money, but I am a firm believer of "you get what you pay for."
I plan to OC my cpu to the max (for learning purposes). Ideally i'd like to hit 4.0 ghz (my understanding is not too many have gone over 4.1 ghz on this cpu unless they used custom liquid/nitrogen cooling), and may possibly OC my hd 7970. So, since i am going the non-liquid cooling route for cooling, I feel like i need to make a good investment on my side panel fans. I am also thinking of replacing the top and front panel 200mm fans as the top one is slowly dying on me, but I don't want to think about that yet... the options to replace these fans are incredibly retarded if you ask me. This is definitely corsairs mistake of making a TOO awesome of a product.

Please help. Again my main inquiry is:

best solution in finding the biggest case fan that will fit on the side metal mesh panel.

Cheers man!

I have another 3570k I can try if need be at work so I could swap them over and test. I have a good relationship with a local computer company but not good enough for them to let me test chips without buying them haha Ideally I would get a 3770k, although I hear Ivy-E is coming out in September which is awfully tempting but probably out of my price range! If I really scrape the pennies this month I COULD get a 3770k but it seems such a large cost for such a small upgrade. I would get £100 for my 2500k that I have spare, and 3770k here is £260 so would need to find another £160. The i5 3570k isn't mine to sell at the moment as I did a swap with a family member.

My pc is off the floor, its ontop of my desk. Dust isn't REALLY REALLY bbad but it does need a wipe down every few days. Without the side fan my GPU's get to about 80c! With the side fan they run at around 70c max. Its a big difference. When adding the filter (I tried 5 different filters and fans) I saw temps of around 76c+ on my top Asus Direct CU II GTX 670.

My local store do have a OEM 3770k which means you only get the chip but i'm not sure if those are going to overclock as well, I do wonder why they are unboxed in the first place. That is being sold for £230 so £30 cheaper.

Thinking about getting a i7 3770k myself for the extra threads,cpu is bottlenecking my 780's in BF3,and i have been reading about BF3 being multithreaded and runs better with an i7 when you have a dual card setup....Have you tried running the side fan or fans on the case in an exhaust manner i have seen where people got better results like that especially when running dual non-reference cards,basically they cant breath because all that hot air from the cards are being curculated in that area,thats why for a dual card setup most people recommned reference cards....

Hi mate,

Yep I tried 6 different fans, all exhaust and intake, with 5 different filters and intake was the best solution by far. The AP-15 outperformed all the other fans by about 5c too. I wasn't expecting to be able to afford SLI tbh, if i had then i probably would have opted for a reference card in the first place. Never mind, temps are still not bad.

Yeah I hear a couple of games benefit from the 3770k too, but I also hear HT sometimes can cause worse performance! I guess the best solution is Hex core!

I am reaching 85c on some cores at the moment and need 1.288v to be stable at 4.5ghz! I might see if i can replace the TIM tonight as i think i used some crappy AS5 last time with some IC Diamond 7 to see if that bring temperatures down a little and if it still locks up, i can then try bumping voltage although its high already and at its thermal threshold

I can get an OEM 3770k for £233 but I don't think I can realistically afford it at the moment

Don't doo it smile.gif

Wait for it, don't give in to the temptation...

On the BF3 matter, I have been playing 1 or 2 games every day now on nosharh Canals tongue.gif, I still suck, but getting slightly better.
I don't know my fps in BF 3 but I run everything on Ultra with my 2 HD7870's and everything is sooo smooooth. Great graphics.

Only 3 more months..... can't wait Battlefield 4 is going to be great i think. And those graphics are pretty mind blowing, many good games are going to be released 2013-14. GTA IV, Saint's Row IV, Battlefield 4, Mirror’s Edge 2, Assassin's Creed IV, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, The Division, Titanfall, Destiny, Mad Maxx. WHEW i think i covered most there quite some games to look forward to thumb.gif
