    Ok, first of all, the H100i is not "twice as good" as the H80i. It has been shown time and again that the H100i outperforms the H80i ONLY in push-pull and then only to the tune of about 2-5 degrees....

    Cool, thanks Myk. Since I jumped the gun tonight, I'll do some more runs tomorrow night and upload my best result. :)

    That 102K was without any "tweaks" -- now I gotta start chasing that 110,000...

    Not clear on whether the upload function is working yet or not, but here's my first score since my custom wc build. Pretty sure I can squeeze some more out of it with some time to tighten my ram...

    If I hit the lotto and had virtually unlimited resources, I would build pretty much exactly the system I have right now. I suppose I'd swap out the 770's for three 780Ti's if money wasn't an...

    Any graphics card will work with any motherboard, they don't have to 'match' in any way. Just make sure you UNINSTALL your old hardware and drivers first (you can do this from "Add/Delete Programs"...

    Yeah, I agree -- all the high end custom watercooling in the world isn't worth much if the damn thing won't turn on. lol

    It's started happening much more frequently the past few days, and I...

    I guess I spoke too soon. Got my new psu from evga and installed it this week, hoping I would never have the mysterious "refusal to start" problem again. Sometimes it's ironic how optimistic I am. ...

    And hunger.

    Can't eat until you get that one final benchmark to run. Just one more adjustment, this time should be it........ ;)

    Are you setting Windows Boot Loader to first priority in the BOOT menu? I had to do that after I updated to 8.1, no idea why (I think maybe I lost UEFI Windows??), otherwise I just get a cursor...

    Yeah, get your ram stable first, then follow Raja's sticky at the top of this forum. You'll be up and running at 4.3ghz in no time. :)

    Because it's still a complex rendering on a modern engine. Remember when Metro 2033 first came out it was fairly revolutionary, it edged Crysis out of the "top spot" for graphics for a short while. ...

    Yeah, as far as Haswell-e goes, I think you are right. Not only is there no real competition in sight, but there's a lot of pent up demand for a major upgrade. So while Intel wasn't really able to...

    That sucks, but I guess it's good to recognize when you're beaten so you can focus your resources elsewhere. AMD does quite well for itself in the "bargain" segment, I hope they keep pushing prices...

    Before you buy ANY components or commit to ANY manufacturer you're gonna want to do a lot of googling. Having just completed my own first watercooling build I can tell you there's a lot to learn and...

    If you already have the 3970X you won't need anywhere near $4K to fill out the rest of your dream system. Even with top of the line components and two 780 Ti's, you're still gonna come in under $3K....

    Hmm, if you daisy-chain them together in the standard H100i config, you're probably right -- I don't think you can run 2 different speed fans chained together in PWM mode (well, you probably CAN, but...

    Cool, thanks kkn. Just wanted to make sure I didn't have something connected wrong or a bum fan hub. It makes sense that with so many fans pulling from a single mobo header the power variance might...

    One word of advice.... in my experience, you can have silence OR you can have performance. You can't have both. It doesn't matter how much money you throw at it, you just can't.
