yea seriously. it's important the pins on the heatsink sink all the way through. that's why you should mount the cpu,heatsink,ram and maybe graphics card before you mount the mobo

^ i would agree with almost everything
the only thing that i disagree about is the GPU
that can go in after the mobo is mounted in the case
they arent that hard to install IMHO

Yeah I wasn't too too worried this time because I'll be pulling it all back out next month to install a new heatsink before I overclock.

Default Re: My Gaming Rig - Build PICS

just a thought with your 1200...

to get optimum cooling in my 1200 i do this.

i used that extra fan mount and put my fan behind the middle fan in the front, with opposed revolution to the front fan as to cut down on air turbulence.

I set my V8 to max rpms, its quiet at max anyways.

and i set the bottom rear fan to its middle setting.


so then when i want extra cooling, i just max out the front middle fan, and BAM! instant CPU drop of 5*C lol, and my case turns into a little wind tunnel lol.

nothin like having 4 fans in series to remove heat lol.



Nice mobo!

i want to trade u...lol

Yeah when I order my TRUE Black CPU cooler I'll probably also order an extra fan for that fan holder.


Also, an update, running AION open beta well at 1920x1080, even without a GPU in my computer XD (onboard HD 3300). I just turned off weather, and turned down shadows/water detail, and AAx0 until I get my HD 4890 in.
Getting ~40FPS.

Also, Aion is looking great if they fix a few minor annoyances.

New big MMORPG. Launching Sept22 (open beta sept6-sept13).

Much better than any other available MMORPG imo (including WoW).

It's a whopping $14.99 per month!

TBH MMOs save me money; if I wasn't sitting there playing them I'd be out spending money <_<

I spend enough money on crap I don't need anyway (see my sig).
