thank you!! :)

it is working with 3200mhz right now on the newest beta bios. at some z370 systems I experienced, it was much harder for me to get over the 3000mhz wall with a similar ram kit.
I bought one kit earlier this year for a dual channel platform and bought the 2nd kit recently. It works:)
thank you =). all works fine so far. asus employees stated that the block and pipes are made of copper. we will see :D
thx=) added a link for the wallpaper to the description
Thank you :)
it's a feature of the 'wgx' rog version of this case.
thank you! it is an asus pg348q
Yes, I think so. It is a tight fit in the modded top chamber. You may remove the dust filter mesh from the top cover to improve airflow a bit. Something like this would be ideal: https://modmymods.com/phanteks-enthoo-evolv-atx-replacement-top-cover-air-flow-mod-black.html
Hey, thank you=). I sold mainboard and gpu's. The motherboard had some minor bugs but the gpu's were flawless. you may wait for june and check out intels skylake-x or amd's rumored new enthusiast platform.
maybe later if I want to go with a full custom loop. for now it is not worth the hassle to cut a prefilled aio^.
thank you! I am located in germany and many shops have it in stock here.
3+2 intake fans and 4 exhaust fans. all fans at low rpm settings, low temps and no issues with dust. =)
Thank you =) With something like a dremel it was very easy to modify the top chamber. With attention to detail I was spending almost an afternoon to assemble the whole thing.
I am using push pull with the vented front panel and it makes definitely more noise, but it does not disturb me. Overall it is still quiet. Maybe a piece of your case/sheet of metal is vibrating. I don't know..
there is a removable cover
without modding you may have to open the bottom chamber, but it is no problem at all.
I am located in germany and most hardware retailers/onlineshops have it in stock.
you may check the last picture to see where I needed to cut the metal. This is only needed if you want to use the optional evga shroud for a cleaner look. you can mount the pump itself to the stock nvidia cooler plate if you don't want to play around with a dremel, like gamers nexus does here and there. But this looks a bit 'ghetto' ;D.
I like the i/o section and the possibility to watercool the vrm's out of the box if I want to go custom loop later.
Hey, I really like the look of the corsair HD's and bought a Corsair Node Pro only to get software controllable fans. In my opinion the HD's are a bit better looking and are the slightly better radiator fans. For better sync I would suggest you go with aer fans. I have to use NZXT CAM, ASUS Aura and Corsair Link Software to get control over my lighting effects. One software/ one lighting controller for all is way more convenient, so you don't have to mess around with 3 buggy programs rather only one.
Only front is on higher rpm intake and top and rear on lower rpm exhaust. No dust at all^
The main benefit of a 280mm rad is that you can run the fans on lower rpm's to have lower noise, but you may check some comparisons and see that there isn't that much of a difference. Here you can see when the cover is removed:
I think they are using a 240mm rad, so it is only for illustration.
If you want to mod or remove the bottom chamber cover you can attach a 280mm (x62) rad there easily and it's slightly more 'powerful'.
I wanted to use the corsair hd 120's and to have the rad in the front. a 280mm rad would go through the bottom chamber and I don't like the look of the removed cover. 120mm fans/rads make the build a bit more versatile. You may check my newest build what I have done there, only using 240mm/120mm rads: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/t3tgXL
:D yes, maybe the maximus code would be the "better/cheaper" option in my case, but i like to have the possibility to go fully custom water inc. vrm later (maybe in another build) and the built-in io shield is a cool feature. But for now I don't see the 'real' benefits of a custom loop to justify the extra 1000$, because the pc is silent and fast operating..
hey, it is a tight fit, but in my case it is not really pushing against the ram, only touching
I really like the formula board and at this point the 7700K is the better overall performer for gaming and i don't have to deal with early adopter bugs of a new platform. but you are right, for a mixed gaming/workstation scenario the ryzen may be the better option.
maybe I will swap the mobo+cpu in summer for skylake x or the rumored enthusiast ryzen (x390) and will build a watercooled htpc with the kabylake parts. but I will keep the cards for a very long time ^
pure gaming ^
hey, it is a tight fit, but it is not really pushing against the ram, only touching
I like the look of the formula :D and I think the higher clocked 7700K (5+GHz) can handle the two 1080ti's slightly better in terms of gaming. Maybe I check out the rumored x390 or skylake-x later. :)
The ROG logo is from mnpctech.com or what do you mean?
Hey, thank you :). You need a corsair node pro to get software control for the fans led's.
it is touching the first dimm but not really pushing. maybe you check picture 4
It is a tight fit but no problem at all. :)
:'D this link..
Thank you! Yes, I did not want to change my other pcpbuild because I like how it finally turned out and started this as a 'new' one. But almost every part changed, so it is okay ^
In a secret cave *ARRRR
Hey, thank you! =) It is a kraken x52(!) with four 120mm Corsair HD120's attached to the rad. The Kraken comes with a fan splitter for four fans. the x62 only supports 140mm fans.
yep 1080ti sli, waiting for delivery ^
Haha, np.. ^ I am sorry, my first name is Peter and PT is just an abbreviation for it.
