    It's the VRM design, if you update the BIOS (a temporary fix) the CPU will throttle itself and underclock to stop the board overheating. It's a stop-gap until they can fix them all.

    Much cheaper then those horribly overpriced Apple Cinema displays that's for sure, not sure how much the Dell screens are though. Asus monitors in general have a very nice picture quality whether they are TN or IPS screens.

    So I thought I should put this up here, just to give people a look into the new Sandy Bridge E system.

    Spec is as follows:

    Cooler Master HAF X (2x200m top, 1x200m side, 1x200m front, 1x140mm back)
    Corsair HX1050W
    Gigabyte X79-UD5
    Intel i7 3930K & Corsair H100 (Push/Pull with 4x bequiet Shadow Wings)
    4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1866Mhz
    2x128GB Crucial m4 (RAID0)
    1TB Seagate Barracuda (Media)
    500GB WD Caviar (Backup & Games that don't fit on RAID)
    160GB WD (Documents)
    MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 570 (Had a second Gigabyte Windforce 570, Aria tested as faulty but took credit note instead as I wait for new cards)
    2xSony DVDRW Drives (no need for bluray as I used the TV for that)
    2 x iiyama ProLites, 24" and 22"
    Razer Naga Epic
    Soon to be Logitech G510 (currently G15)
    Logitech X530 5.1 surround system

    <SNIP>
    I think this is our first x79 post

    i7-6700K | Z170 Class. K | 16GB DDR4-3200 | GTX-980ti | Samsung 950 Pro RAID0 | SuperNOVA 1Kw P2 | Lian Li PC-07S

    Yup, congrats to Fierae!

    Is that an Asus Xonar DX + a TV Tuner card I see in one of the first pictures as well? ;p

    Also, why not use a 230mm fan in the front of the HAF X? That's what is there originally.

    It was an Asus Xonar yes! I gave that away in a competition though, will pick up another one when I can! The 'tuner' card was actually the Gigabyte Wifi/Bluetooth card that came with the board, I did have a TV Tuner card but don't use it in this

    And you have corrected me there! The original fan is still in I think - it was me being mis-informed of the size!

    The Apple Cinema display is a 27" 2560x1440 IPS and exactly the same price as Dell's 27" Ultrasharp with the same resolution.

    I would be interested in comparing notes on what you think about the mobo and CPU stability after you've had it up and running for a few weeks. I've been shocked by how hard it can be overclocked without generating excessive amounts of heat. From 3.2 -> 4.8 with just a H100 cooler and minimal OC experience = not freaking bad.

    The Apple Cinema's are currently a good deal. I would pick one up if I weren't already in the 1600p club.

    I'll post back in a while then and let you know, hopefully once I get a replacement motherboard from Gigabyte!

    What was the cooling system that's take your temperatures below 0C called? I can't seem to find the link in this thread, I know I saw it somewhere!

    3 come to mind - phase change, liquid nitrogen, and liquid helium. None of which are cheap.

    I'd assume you're talking about Phase Change then... Not sure of specific brands, this may be of help though :

    Think I found it actually. I've been googling and looking for about an hour now. Sub Zero seemed to be the keyword!

    - Dis is cool! And thanks for your help, not quite sure this is it though..
