Only way I could mount it really. The power and data plugs on it were on the other side and I couldn't get the cables to fit through the other way to let it sit correctly.
Didn't know that, but I do have a 40 lane! So I'm good either way. Thanks for the info though!
Thank you! It does look stretched but it still has a decent amount of play despite it's looks. I still have plenty of tubing left should I need to redo it soon and I've thought about doing it and maybe adding a T joint with a valve to make draining it easier.
Wish I was as lucky as you, I've the same board and it doesn't see my 950 Pro (512). I can tell the chip works at least since it gets warm but I can't yet build my rig, waiting for one last part to get in for my coolant loop.
Really want that M.2 to work also, time will tell I suppose since I want to see if the windows installer will see it since places I've looked online are saying it can happen like that.
I've got a question about how you top mounted that rad. I ordered one of EK's kits with a 240 rad and the only thing that puts me off on this case is that sliding fan/rad bracket on top. It looks like you removed it and used 2 strips of aluminum to screw the rad into?
Steller job with the pictures, but, I'd like to know how you mounted the HDDs in the lower bay. I REEEEEAAALLLYYY want to use this case for my upcoming x99 build and have the need for some mass storage drives and have thought about a front mounted rad like that, but I wasn't aware of any HDD cages (or mounting for that matter) in the lower compartment.
True that. By the way, let me know if you experience your machine having weird crashes. Apparently a bug on the 6700K causes it to essentially have a brain fart during complex operations, my laptop, G752, had this issue, the fix is a bios update which is why I was skeptical about it but after the fix all went well.
If yours is solely for gaming you can save money and drop to an i5. Look next to anywhere on the net and if you're just gaming you only need an i5. The i7 is for more workstation type tasks and since I don't feel like getting a Haswell E system due to the costs associated with x99, the 6700k will work fine as it has hyper threading so its technically an 8 core and will work great!
I actually have a laptop, the ASUS G752, that has the laptop version of the 6700 and it also has hyper threading and so far it works like a dream and rendering videos hasn't been an issue. Though I would say if I wanted to shoot video in anything higher than 1440p (and even that is pushing it) I would go for an extreme edition CPU with 6(12) or 8(16) cores.
