I actually need to update that, i have 5 of them in there(didnt get the sixth because my wife said $2600 was enough) so I'm planning on dropping another in there very soon. The fans fit into this case with no hassle at all. I used screws provided by corsair included in the case and they actually worked perfectly as compared to the screws included with the fans, which gave me a rough time.
I actually just sold the ram to a friend and bought a set of FlareX because I was impatient. This happened 2 weeks before the update so..yeah pretty salty but I cant be mad at the performance.
I was originally gonna mount it up top but went with a front mount because it looked better from the front, when looking at it, the radiator helps block the light from the internals from mixing in with the HD 120 fans. I didnt actually mount it up top, but from the looks, you may be able to squeeze it up there.
Yeah, I left it there while i was still going in/out with the gpu so as not to scratch the surface.
Sorry for the delay. No, unfortuantely the issue has not been fixed yet. But i'm not doing anything on the PC that would make me notice the difference. Although what I have read suggests removing 2 of the sticks and going that route, gives you better speed as compared to using 4 sticks.
Its only not cpmpatible because they dont ship the retention bracket with the cooler. All you need to do is use an old backplate like I did. When the AM4 retention bracket arrives i plan to switch it back over. But there was no way in hell I was waiting on starting this build, because of a mounting bracket.
90% if they sync up.
Thank you, i took my time on it.
I should probably edit that. It maintains that temp under load for a short time but after that its around 50- 60 steadily. If i disable the RGB effects its about 5 degrees cooler.
