most people say the archon is fine with the Corsair Vengeance but i haven't seen someone confirming it with this motherboard, does it block any of the dimm socket?

Thanks,

I don't believe so. The first PCI slot is blocked by the horrible placement of the heatsink for the "north bridge". So there's nothing to worry about there.

And about the memory, it has enough space, if you're going to be setting it up in a East-West setup like a normal person. tongue.gif

I personally have the vengeance with the archon and two GTS 450s. However, this is with my P6X58D-e, and not your UD7. It should work very well though. Go eight ahead and install one. Everything fits perfectly, and there were no problems whatsoever. Pics of the archon with the vengeance and dual video cards:

Meh... People just dont known what theyre missing out on... The archon is a great cooler...

But taking into consideration about what you said, I might just hangs the title to something more along the lines of "thermalright archon help/info thread"

The cable isn't the right type. It is very similar to the one you've chosen, but needs one extra pin. The connector of the above one is a 3-pin fan connector, but the one you need is a 4-pin PWM connector. The pin fan connector works by varying the voltage to fan - one pin is the ground, another the power, and the last one the fan tachometer. On the PWM connector, the first 3 are the same, but the last pin is an additional PWM function pin.

I'm not too sure about this, but basically, PWM is just a more accurate method of controlling fan speeds. BTW, PWM stands for pulse width modulation.
So, you would need a cable like this: http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX31957%28ME%29.aspx?cc=1

This is from a Canadian website, and its the one that I bought, but you should be able to find one like this elsewhere.

I NEED TO KNOW HOW YOU DID THIS MAGIC!!!

Boy oh boy! The Brooklyn Bridge Syndication Society is accepting new investors. Just send my Paypal account the number of shares you want, $100 per share . . .

There is no magic here, just a long known issue with cpu temp sensors. My ambient at the time was about 18-19c, fairly cold in the house. The heatsink was a D14 with a P14 and two AP-14's - "The Fourteens," I called them.

What you are seeing is something Intel warns about: the further you get from Tj-max (99c) the less accurate those sensors are. All you really know is that a temp reading of 14c is lower than a temp reading of 16c. What you don't know is if they are really 14c and 16c, or 25c and 26c; i.e. -- you don't know where those temps really are and how far apart they are.

This is why some reviewers actually lay down a temp sensor of their own in a groove in the cpu's integrated heatspreader (ihs).

The reason I recorded that screenshot is that I thought it was ridiculous. I still think it's hilarious, and instructive: it shows us the limits of our tools.

And right now I'm looking through the grill of my Beta Evo at where the tube tops of my Mugen 2 seem to be about a cm from the grill. Maybe, oh maybe I've got room for an Archon. It would give me my fourth TY-140. Hmmm . . .
