    crappy motherboard woes!

    man... coolermaster is being unscrupulous. its using pcpp to check compatibility. Why does pcpp give inaccurate info about compatibility? Some coolers are compatible but it blocks the PCI-E or the backplate is not compatible with the motherboard. How the heck can you call this compatible when it cripples your mobo?

    Thanks man. Its insane how much you know. Can you reccomend me another one?

    crappy motherboard woes!

    Thanks for the response man. But my motherboard has an annoying ek backplate as well as some odd screw popping out. This really hinders cooler compatibility. Is there anyway to use the le grand without a backplate?

    3770K or 4771?

    Overclocked 3770k would kill 4771.

    I think he should invest a bit more and go with the 3770k. He should get a z77 motherboard and overclock it. You can squeeze around 4.3~4.5 with proper cooling. Also, overclock your ram to 2400. Get a new GPU, maybe 1070ti and you are gold. parts you need: z77 board <--50~70USD used Noctua d15 <--- 70USD used 1070ti <---- 300USD used this should still last you at least 4 more years.

    Need to buy speakers for around 40-70€

    spend 70 euros and get a used audio engine a2 or a2 plus!
  7. I definitely change to DRP4 if it is compatible. To substantiate, when the water pump on the h100i goes slightly out of alignment, it makes a high pitched whining noise. Also, if you setup multiple accounts on your windows, corsair AIO starts to get messed up due its poor software. I am seriously regretting buying the h100i v2. I am getting mine RMAed next week. I am planning on selling it.

    oh btw, please recommend me an air cooler that fits inside my bit fenix prodigy. I want the largest possible air cooler so I can do some overclocking again.

    crappy motherboard woes!

    my motherboard is a zotac z77 itx. possibly the worst mobo in the world. it has the worst cpu cooler compatibility on the market. I first had a thermolab bada cpu cooler. I thought it was a bad cooler so I got a corsair h100i v2. The backplate didn't quite fit due to zotac's poor design but I used it anyways. It ran pretty well for a while. Fast forward 6 months, and my computer started BSODing every other day. H100i started making some weird noise in the pump part as well. So I took the computer apart and I found out that the thermal paste became solid as a rock due to poor contact. I need an air cooler recommendation. Please recommend me a cooler that fits on to my god forsaken zotac z77 itx. Oh btw, if any of your guys have an asus p8z77-i, I will gladly buy it off of you. Cheers

    Upgrading from a 660ti

    I would personally go with AMD because of freesync. Many monitors come with freesync. Gsync ones are way too expensive. Basically, freesync makes machines that hit 45~60 fps seem like constant 60fps. So 1) get an AMD gfx and 2) get a freesync monitor in the future.

    Upgrading from a 660ti

    1050ti. anything lower is just not worth it. get a noctua d15 cooler if it fits your case. d15 is the best short term and long term investment by far.

    I hate h100i v2

    the cooler stopped making high pitched sound. It is working normal again...wtf...

    List Best AIO Liquid Cooler 240mm

    yes!!! another soul saved! I want to start a no AIO movement until companies get their crap together. I feel like I've been ripped off on so many levels. 240 AIO vs D15 D15 is cheaper D15 arguable cools better in the long run D15 has less points a failure (my h100i v2 is releasing white powders now, but for some odd reason, I can't locate the leakage) D15 is quieter Nuff said.

    Upgrade to get back into PC gaming

    By the way, if you are gonna get a cooler, don't get an AIO. Get a Noctua d15 if it fits. I have corsair h100i v2 and I hate every moment of my life.
