are you in the U.S.?.. when i got mine it was 159.00... now it seems to be up to 199.00.. but i just dont see where you are gettin that 330.00 from.. any way, its a great cooler... but they all do the job.. but I wouldn't pay 330.00 for it when you can get any other 280mm setup for about 150.00 or less.

hey man, sorry for the late reply... the card can be loud if the fans are maxed out, but they wont really get maxed out because icx design seems to dissipate the heat extremely well... I personally set a custom fan profile that stays ahead of the heat and is for the most part silent... even on long gpu renders, the card never hits 60C and stays fairly quiet.. however, if you simply max out the fans, it will like any other card, be loud... but the newly designed radiator is more efficient and seems to require less fan speed to achieve excellent temps, so therefore it can run very quiet and cool...

tried 7A33v34, was problematic... but the later released beta v3.51 is flawless and fast... so i am currently using beta v3.51 and highly recommend it...

should be a pretty sweet build man... and yeah... i just got that ssd to get started with the build and pick more drives later.... I threw a segate barracudo pro 6tb in there and probably gonna throw a 960 pro in the m2 slot and use this one or another 850 evo as a scratch disk.. but honestly... i dont even need to.... im only doing it cause i feel like i should... Also, check your ram options... the new microcode has made many ram kits compatible now.. so you can probably get some relatively less expensive kits that will work flawlessly at 3200+...

haha... i cant even remember why that happened... I think the case only came with one 140mm and a 120mm.. and i wanted a pair of 140s up top for exhaust.. so i had to order the other 140mm.

itsall good either way... the air will move fast enough to not make much of a difference anyway.. the biggest consideration is how well it flows through the case... because this case can really move some air through it, i like to blast the rad with the coolest high speed air i can throw at it... then i tune the exhaust to either maintain slightly positive pressure under normal operating conditions, or to max excavation for extreme performance conditions... either way will likely only affect your temps a couple degrees if even that.. but i have found this to be the best yet... my temps are cool.. usually 30c -55c stock full load... and up to 72c@4.2 @ 1.44325v... and my gpu has seen 60c like 5 times since ive owned it... thing just stays cool.... one other thing to note though is your dust filters.. they will highly restrict your airflow... they are totally fine for normal use and even some performance benching, but if you are really gonna push your system, id say pull them off while doing so... it takes quite alot to saturate a good 280mm rad, but id say dont even give it a chance.. move the air.

Intake... i want the rad to have the coolest air going to it.. and that always comes from outside the case with no extra heat saturation... just my personal preference.

no man.. wouldnt really change a thing.... you can check out the performance of this build at http://hwbot.org/user/dflippink/ .... it is an outstanding performer... the only thing i have left to do with it is try some optional RAM sticks... It is solid and fast at 2666.. but apparently things open up even more at 3200+... The mobo runs head to head with the performance of the CH6.. almost identical... but i have had zero problems with my board where CH6 seems to be troublesome for alot of people.. I cant really recommend this setup enough if you want to build a ryzen rig...

haha!.. a custom watercooling setup.. there isnt really a great amount of room in it for a custom water setup... i mean, it could be done.. and it would be RAD.. but it would be a helluva lotta work and mostly a pain in the butt.

yep.. Logo, No Logo, the Ring, its all independent of eachother.. and there are different effects you can add to each.. and you can select whatever color you like for each as well.

mine worked perfectly up to 2666... but I haven't clocked it past that yet.. it hasn't given me any problems.. but I haven't reached 3000Mhz as of yet... I also haven't really tried though.. it all seems to depend on which Mobo you choose and what the latest updates for that particular board are... and supposedly, all boards are receiving major updates this month specifically for RAM compatability..

Thanks!... I went with the 1800x mostly because it definitely works as it had been suggested to work.. and for me, that meant running at a base speed of 3.6ghz, boosting two cores as needed, the ability to clock all cores to 4.1, and staying cool while doing it no questions asked.. While the 1700 was reaching close to the same speeds, sometimes better, most reviews had shown varying results, some with temps getting out of hand around 3.9... and while there were lots of suggestions and rumors of Silicone Lottery and Binned Chip variables, ..most of the test's on the 1800x were providing consistent results comfortably running at 4.1... What this all ads up to for me in the end, is sitting down to my machine, ripping through whatever i throw at it stock, and not even breaking a sweat when i run it at 4.1... The 1700 is by far the best purchase you can make this year so far, and an absolute beast itself,... but for this build, and its intended purpose, the 1800x, (XFR, base clocks, boost clocks, and overclocks), was the solid choice, and worth every penny..

probably about the same point as having a windowed side panel.. however, you can also stack things on it such as ssd's, or support your gpu from it... even paint it pink if you like.
