Hey hi, i have a intel I7700k about the same temps that you have. I am not using cam software as it is too buggy for me to use almost fried my cpu doesn't detect kraken after a few boot ups/restarts so my setup is AIO pump connected to dedicated aio header and fans connected to cpu_fan cpu_opt.
Turned off the extreme quiet mode in asus suite 3 and the symptoms actually went away so that might have fixed it.
hey chill! yes I have used the same RGB strip for testing the rgb headers/pins.
as for the RMA I have no problem if it was from amazon. t its my first time for newegg and there's a lot of horror stories regarding they're return/replacement policy so yeahh headache..
Hey thanks for the reply sir!
hey man love the PSU! just want to ask are you facing the PSU fan side to the vents?
thank you sir!
Plastidip sir easy to use :D
thanks! now i know the exact size lol I bought the same thing a few weeks ago but it was too small.
Its the linnmon corner table from Ikea :)
hello awesome build where did you get that cable clamps? attached to the aio cables?
hmm.. that's weird I am actually using AI suite to control my fans it brings down the assist fan speed to 40% my Cpu fan is controlled by corsair link and msi afterburner for my gpu.
haha yeah it was the 1st batch of pre orders XD
Its all good just had to customize the fan curve to obtain a stable performance without thermal throttling with OC +190 gpu and +400 mem clock spd temp stays around 70+ at full load @ 1440p. Canceled my pre order FTW on amazon could not resist so I gave in and bought FE lol but I am happy with it. FTW is a beast so I suggest you wait for it.
+1 buddy! Looks hella nice! I love the noctua fans! mannn I wished I went this route with the cryorig and fractal define case never thought it would look sooo badass well atleast I followed you with te sabertooth :D
i bought 2 non PWM fans that should be ok right? Mobo can still control/regulate it via bios or asus suite.
Yeah I guess extension is the answer the Assist fan 3 the manual says that its +5v and should only be used on assist fans.
Hi thanks for the reply. Is it better to put the rad fans on the cpu_ assist fans and not the CPU_fan?
Thank you sir :)
I am not entirely sure but i guess the LUX edition is a best buy exclusive name branding.
Yes sir just waiting for my GPU :)
Thank you sir.
Thanks! Pre-ordered evga 1080 FTW hope I made the right choice since it also matches my color scheme but I really love the looks of that reference cooler :/
EVGA founders edition or EVGA FTW for color scheme.
I am now confused some say FE's are all stock some says its OC'd :,(
Leaning towards a 1440p @ 144hz with good image and color quality been researching a lot about asus and acer monitors but I am too scared to pull the trigger due to the QC issues they both have.
I haven't tried turning it off yet but yeah thanks for sharing that.
Thank you! I'll take note of that :)
Thanks man! no issues with the mobo worked great flashed the bios right away after 1st boot. also no problems with 3200 you can actually use a profile that can utilize that speed so far all passed on diagnostic testing. yeah man I would love to have that dominator too but I still have to save up for a gpu and monitor XD.
all good with the aio easy to install 0 issues.
yes please! i'll wait for it. good luck on your build thanks for showing me the mark 1 and TI psu :DD they're awesome!
Kinda leaning towards strix too to match the mobo... but i really like the look of the reference 1080 :( ohhh mannn XD why is it always hard to decide lol
Thanks for the heads up. Any suggestions on getting the 1080
check this out http://www.toptengamer.com/budget-1151-skylake-motherboards/
which one for the founders edition or their custom one?
complete list!!!! SWEET!! cheers my friend!
NICE! looking at MSI's too just because they have aero logo on it LOL but that EVGA is super! thanks man!
That's what I thought aftermarket 1080's are %10 faster from what I've read.
I hope so lol my last GPU was a 9800GT so this is a Light year jump for me XD
I see so the founders edition is a little bit OC'd? I thought they ran on stock.
yeah I was unlucky bro after checking out is says item out of stock T_T its in my cart already whyyyy!!!
It looks nice actually! Still has the tuf armor! I'll check it out.
Thanks man! Is it this one http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-sabertoothz170mark1?
Thank you for all the input guys. but if you click the link I am actually comparing the "WHITE" asus sabertooth z170 S and not the mark 1 ver.
oh yeah one more question 650w or 750w?
I see the only thing that's holding me up from getting an AIO is because of the horror stories (leaking) so yeah thanks man!
I've been eying that asus mobo too thanks for reminding me I heard its good for overclocking :D, that fan looks cool so white! I guess that means you prefer air cooling? I'll definitely consider that ripjaws. thank you.
one helluva nice build!!! this is the build I've been looking for!! I have less headache now thanks for sharing! going for a white version I wonder how the asus z170 and a cryorig h7 will do on this build and probably a 1080.
what do you guys think is this build good with a GTX 1080 on it?
Whoa! that one looks good too I didn't know there was a window option thanks man!
Nice I'll check that out. thanks!
