Thanks for the info
lol didn't realize on was still on page 1.
Thats looking like a nice build. Make sure you get pics of the putting together and share on here. TPU love that.
I don't know if I can get any of putting it together, but I'll try; and I'll definitely post pics after!
I got all of the parts today, but unfortunately the CPU fan/heatsink isn't compatible :/
before u ship it back u might need a bracket for 2011. nvmd looks like u need the evo.
Are the mounts for the fan supposed to go through to the bottom of the motherboard? Me and my Dad got the bracket aligned, but we couldn't figure out if they are supposed to go through and be tightened down by the nuts. The instructions really aren't clear
Searched model number on Coolermaster's website.
Socket 2011 not listed under compatibility. Given the BUDGET nature of the 212, and the small footprint, this makes sense.
You want something decent, and the ability to overclock to something reasonable? You need to either go sealed liquid or HIGH end air. I have had good luck with the H100, Water 2.0 Pro, and recommend that you stay the heck away from the H80. Based upon the performance of the Water 2.0 Pro, the Water Extreme would also be a good choice. There should be a review up in short order (Thermaltake has been kind enough to let some of the users on this forum write-up reviews!).
The socket 2011 incorporates the back plate into the motherboard. You need to screw in from the top. Nothing goes through the board on 2011!
That's right its a its a 2011 socket. Sorry about that. Use the stock HS and fan if you bought retail box until you get one that s works
ok go to coolermaster.com look for heatsinks and fans for 2011,there is like 5 of them, neweg should have them. watercooling isnt needed
Would this work for the mounting bracket?: COOLER MASTER RR-ACCY-2011-R1 Intel LGA 2011 Reten...
They now make an adapter for using a 212 on socket 2011
COOLER MASTER RR-ACCY-2011-R1 Intel LGA 2011 Reten...
Edit- nvm you seem to have found it
Yep that's it
that will work. just follow instructions.
ensure to get thermal compound before u make final purchase. i dunno if the 212 heatsink has it.
arctic silver5 works
Thermal paste? If so, it has it
ya thats it follow directions when ready to mount cooler. apparently original motherboard backplate(on board already) is used for install
That's what it looks like. Got the retention bracket ordered yesterday, just waiting for NewEgg to ship it (it's 10:48PM on a Friday night); really hoping to have it tomorrow since I paid for next day..
im not sure if its considered a business day
I don't think it is, but I'm hoping it is haha. Kinda pisses me off since that's the only thing stopping me from continuing with the build, but what can you do.
Edit: Looks like I missed this in their FAQ: "No deliveries will be made on Saturday or Sunday.".. Looks like I'm waiting until Monday after all :/
Or later. Did you select rush processing? They process it Monday, send it at the end of Monday, and it gets to you Tuesday.
Sorry to be the bearer of more crappy news.
I would have (and I did,) opt for the Deluxe instead of the Pro. The 16+2+2 phase VRM for the CPU is pretty sexy. The Pro only sports an 8+2.
I feel your pain about waiting. I'm waiting on a bloody o-ring for my 655 pump to continue
But when you get it, you'll be good to go and enjoy the happiness of a nice build
phases are better than they used to be
Most VRMs aren't powering a 6-core Intel beast. ...but you're right, the 8+2 will work fine. I'm just saying that the extra phases make a difference. I have almost no Vdroop, voltages are rock solid and stable, voltages never jump around (except with entering different power states, which it should,) and if you check out Cadaveca's review on the deluxe, the VRM idle power has a good indication that it's one of the most efficient VRMs you can get your hands on at the time of the review.
8+2 on a 970 amd board handles the bd 8150 ocd. and 1100t too
Rush processing and next-day. And it's alright, at least I get responses here - other forums have just buried my threads (most of which were simply noob questions, too). And according to UPS and Newegg (not sure if they sink results or something), but the estimated delivery date is 9/24 (which is a Monday); and they haven't missed the date yet
