    I needed more space on my small table to put other stuff, so the Roccat Arvo is the most suitable for me. It does it's job well, compact and firm... just wished it has more light on it so I can play in the dark..

    I was saving money for when we move out to our new home but that's not happening for another 6 months maybe?
    so i'm currently eyeing out a HAF XB or a 690 III which i can get locally for 146$ and 160$ respectively, do you think both support my huge maximus 3 extreme? which do you recommend

    Upgrade to my old Green-Blooded Vulcan. Replaced HD 6950 with R9 290.

    Much Quieter and Cooler now. :D

    Just been playing Crysis 3 Multiplayer at Very High, OC at 1100/1400. Also added +25mV to core voltage.

    So far temps stay mid-60c and below 70C at most.

    Better than 95C, or extremely loud 83C. :D

    I'm surprised it took that long for someone to comment. Think I swiped some off with a q-tip before mounting, but not my best TIM application.

    Their directions said to make a star pattern, which would have been way overkill I think.

    tbh if both surfaces are perfectly flat then the dot method is more than enough!

    most gpus mount with a reasonable amount of force, plenty enough to squeeze it around!

    I'll probably take a look and redo it when I get the back plate.

    I used the EK supplied stuff, which was kind of runny. Might try some AS5 next.

    Just rebuilt this and attempted to keep wires out of the way of air flow. Unfortunately the motherboard has the power connector in the worst possible location.

    Still will work fine for a gmod server.
