  1. here a pic of my new motherboard, the gigabyte z170xp sli. I dont see anywhere to plug in the fan headers.
  2. ummm..... where is it located? i dont think I have one on my moba. I have a gigabyte ud5h z97. i cant seen anything on the moba to hook it into.
  3. I need help on how to hook up a corsair h100igtx cpu cooler. I have no idea why my cpu is running really hot when it is clear that the h100i is cycling water. This cpu cooler comes with 3 different connectors and I do not know how to connect one of them. I added a picture so you guys can see, what the heck type of connector is that? And how do I plug it in? Also, do I need all three connectors to get the cpu cooler to actually work well? Or is the h100igtx just a crapper water cooler? I have had multiple h105's and they are amazing. you plug in one connector to the cpu fan slot on the moba and BAAAM!! temps stay below 30c's. what am I doing wrong here? temps are always above 80'c t am I doing wrong here?
  4. my specs are on this post i made a while back. http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/384994-do-i-have-everything-i-need-for-my-super-ultimate-powerful-gaming-pc-rig/. Im using windows 7, ive been playing watch dogs, just started ac black flag, the witcher 2 and 3, arkham knight, skyrim, all these games have massive micro stutter and flickering lights. I know there has to be an option to fix this because it doesnt make sense that all these games are doing this on the type of build I have. maybe its my g sync monitor??
  5. Hi there. So i recently built a powerful gaming rig running with 2 980 ti's but every single game I play has massive micro stutter and flickering lights/shadows..... Is there something wrong with my graphics cards? or do i need to change something in the display settings? im running these cards on the acer xb270hu. Im very ignorant when it comes to pc specs to please help me out in any way possible. Thanks guys "-)

  7. @Madscientisht56, Ill be hiring a professional to build it for me, I was told watercooling is alot more effective then air cooling, since my house is like a baked oven all the time since we dont have air conditioning
  8. So if I buy the Swiftech H240-X, Ill be good to go then? I costs about $150, which i can get on my next paycheck next week.
  9. What pieces do I need to buy in order to do that? Thanks for the help BTW
  10. I need something else other then the Corsair Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler CW-9060016-WW? I thought this was all it took to water cool the rig. Sorry I dont know anythign about pc and rigs
  11. Hi everyone, I need help. I finally ordered all my parts for my new build, or at least I think i did, and i just want to make sure i have everything before I hire someone to build it for me. so far this is what I have.... Case = Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Full Tower Chassis PH-ES614L_BK Black Monitor = Acer XB270HU bprz 27-inch WQHD NVIDIA G-SYNC (2560 x 1440) Widescreen Monitor PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 80PLUS Platinum Certified ATX12V/EPS12V Active PFC 1000W Power Supply (220-P2-1000-XR) Motherboard = Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H LGA 1150 Z97 with Killer E2200 and Intel Gaming Networking SATA Express M.2 SSD ATX Motherboard Processor = Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz) (BX80646I74790K) graphics cards = 2 EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Hydro Copper Ram = Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB 2x8GB DDR3 2400MHz PC3 19200 Desktop, Red CMY16GX3M2A2400C11R Raid 0 = 2 Samsung 850 Pro 256GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-7KE256BW) Watercooler = Corsair Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler CW-9060016-WW Hard drive = WD Blue 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 7200rpm Internal Hard Drive Dish Drive = ASUS BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS 12X Blu-ray Internal Burner Drive with Disc Encryption Keybored = BlueFinger Wired USB Three Color Red Blue Purple LED Illuminated Backlight Backlit Gaming Keyboard Mouse = Anker 8200 DPI High Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse for PC speakers = Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System (Black) Is there anything else I need or do I have everything?

Do I need extra fans for my case? This is a gaming only Pc and i want the best of the best for gaming only. If theres anything else I need, what should I buy? Thanks for the help everyone. Also, it took me a year and a half to save up for this, and luckily it took me that long, cuz if it didnt take me that long i wouldve gottin the 980 classified instead of the 980 ti which is way better. Any help is appreciated. You guys ROCK!!!
