    Corsair Carbide 540 AIR. Right I decided to change the bottom end of my case as for some reason the bottom of the 540 is open. So got some acrylic and carbon and red bolts from a shop called pro bolt here in the UK and closed it up. Also changed my wiring from white to red and the red clip ons on the corsair fans. Hope you like.

    Had to do some surgery on the ram, flash EVGA SC BIOS to the cards for a bit extra clock without any software:

    EVGA. Most shops have them. They come in a few different sizes.


    Yep, could put another card between or move my bottom card up two slots, and the bridge would work still, too. They make a 1x-wide bridge in two sizes (for cards next to each other, or one slot apart), the double-wide triple, which works for both dual and tri configs, and the quad bridge which is obviously double-wide as well.

    No matter which bridge you need, they are all $30 each.

    My H80i decided to die last night, with an awful grinding sound. System overheated and rebooted shortly after the noise began. Upon entering the OS, I say 60c at idle...rad kinda warm, but just barely.


    Obviously the pump died. I bought the cooler December 26th...


    So, back to the H100. I think it kind of looks better, matches better, but clearly I need a real water loop here. Getting 24c idle and 57c loaded at stock under the H100.


    Anyone got ideas for which CPU block I should buy?

    H100i is an H80i with another rad, and I am just about to call Corsair to get this H80i replaced. Maybe I can ask them to upgrade me to H100i.

    @cadaveca one of the EK's supremacy (your choice of colour) would look better and a touch better performance, raystorm is great and performs well but kind of bland looking.


    edit, also would match your doms in there

    +1, nice looking block, sleek, not trying to hard to look cool, and performs exceptionally well. Also has LED's if you're into that sort of thing... I wasn't fussed

    Hmm, white LED might match nice, too. But I'm not gonna WC VGAs, just CPU.

    MX4. For 2011, I use a double-rice grain blob down the middle, and just before block/cooler cannot move, I give it a wiggle to squeeze out the excess, then tighten fully.
