  • Amazon.ca price for CPU-400A... $350 but free shipping...

    leaning towards heatkiller IV since it will match the GPU and cost significantly less than sourcing the CPU-400A from across the border. Any reason not to use that block?

    I'm out of touch on the newer RGB strips that MSI/Asus etc have all pushed sine it wasn't supported by my hardware what do I need to look into for compatibility with this board?

    • Well the CH4-Ex is out and the CH7-Hero is in

      Pheobus stayed in
      the 2x 500GB WD Black NVMe drives are more than enough especially with NMS on my network so I kept them out of raid format and pulled all the sata SSD/Plater drives. I decided to keep the sata cables etc in place so that I can use the front hot swap bays as needed.
      the 18x NF-F12 fans are being controlled properly on the radiators by the motherboard only instead of trying to use the corsair link so it's gone.

      Wiring is a bit more simple I needed to gid out the cables to run an extra 4 pin CPU line but the CH4-EX had two AUX molex plugs that I had hooked up especially for when I was using the dual 6990's unlocked.

      • The bend coming from the bottom to the CPU I had to re-do from scratch the old one wasn't quite right the positing of the CPU socket is slightly different
        Going from the GPU back into the bottom I just needed to trim. The top slot on the CH7 is actually a slot lower than on the CH4-EX
        and I tried multiple times to get the piece from the CPU to the GPU in one piece but I just couldn't get it to bend the way i wanted without the extra elbow.

        A led strip or two and I'd be quite happy.

        I also need to find a 2x external to 1xUSB3 internal converter, so my front ports will actually run at full speed. I installed the conversion kit years ago in the 800D but the CH4-EX didn't have the USB3 internal header to have ever bothered getting the adapter.

                Max GPU temp between FurMark, Catzilla, Timespy + Extreme never broke 48'c and fans never bothered to spin up on the radiators so i'm still in quiet mode.
