    This is normal. The USB ports have 5v when the system is off. To power down the USB you need to switch the PSU off or unplug it.

    Why do you need that 4 port bracket? The Crosshair has plenty of usb2 ports already. If you need more usb2 headers get one of these Internal USB expansion. I use 2 of these for all my usb cooling...

    Dual Crossfire works very well with the current drivers. I tried 3 way 1 time and it's not worth the trouble. I run EK blocks with backplates and temps are 30C lower than on air. Remember...

    Delta T is the difference between ambient air temp and rad coolant temp. A DT of 10C or lower at load what most shoot for. DT is effected by rad surface area, air flow thru the rads and coolant...

    What's your DeltaT? Flow rate? Increase rad surface area to lower DT, dual pumps to increase flow, 1-1.5Gpm is ideal.

    Good deal. I see a lot of situations of users with h2o cooling that feel they do not need air flow. I think air flow is even more important when using h2o and your new case is a perfect example.

    You can not trust software for accurate voltages. You need to check with a DVM, PSU voltages at the atx 24 pin connector and system voltages at the "probelt" on your MB, see page 1-46 of the manual....

    I have a 360 and a 240 rad. I run 2 D5 pumps in series. I have cpu-mb-sb and 2 gpu blocks plus a flow meter and filter, it's a moderately restrictive loop. The 2 D5's give me 4Lpm flow and I...

    You need more rad surface to cool the 9590. Your case excepts a 240 rad and I would recommend the CM Glacier 240L or similar model, these have cooper rads not the aluminum rads that the Corsair...

    The EK-KIT L360 is a good kit. I'm pleased with the EK blocks I have on my chvf-z. CPU, MB and 2 GPU's plus a Heatkiller SB block. The EK kit comes with Advanced LRT tubings, it's one of the best.

    You could use a RAID controller if you have a free pci slot.

    Same chip different clock speed, at low loads they produce the same heat. Your screen shot does not show pump rpm or 80i temp. It would help to know those 2 temps, plus normal ambient temp.

    All it means is that it hasn't been tested on the chvf-z. Personal preference is GSkill for AMD, but if you are getting a great price I would do it.
  15. Do you have the LINK software installed? What is...

    Do you have the LINK software installed? What is the 80i temp in LINK? A 8350 with a 80i should have a 80i temp around 30C@24C ambient and 2200 pump rpm at idle.

    The 80i can cool that cpu but it...

    The FX does not do Physics score as well as Intel, it's been my weak point in most bench marks,

    My 3dmarks are 10k with a single 280x and 15k with crossfired 280x's.

    Take a look at the CM Glacier 240L, this AIO has a cooper rad and is expandable. I've run cpu/mosfet/res with good flow. Adding a bay res makes filling and bleeding very easy. having all cooper...

    You may have a temp issue. I see you have a 80i, that's really not enough cooler for the 9590 with any OC.

    I would run a separate psu cable for the 8 pin atx and 4 pin atx connections. I would also use the 4 pin molex connection for additional gpu power.

    Get rid of ai suite and use a good monitoring software like HWInfo64. Don't worry about a 5v reading of 4.99v, these are software readings and not 100% accurate. Use a quality DVM for checking...
