    Pretty sure he already had the AX750, either way I was purely talking about aesthetics.

    My expression when seeing the build was reminiscent one of "DAT ASS," but since we're not supposed to post meme pictures...
    Wish I could boast of having such pictures available presently. :E

    Whelp, I got it all built, too bad the fan on my H80 as well as one of my front case fans are both dead, cool guy. I am going to pick up a couple of those Xigmatek 120mm fans as well as a couple 140mm ones to add to my case, I have 3 installed at the moment but am going to move my H80 to the exhaust port on the rear, with the two 140mm's up top as well as in the sides. I will link my Photobucket page since the pictures might be too large for the forum.

    I don't suppose you use those for surround/eyefinity and tend to use them more on an individual basis?

    I like to have the option of just clicking out of games to IM/browse/change music.

    It must have been a long day, I forgot to plug in the molex connector for my H80, explains why the fan wasn't spinning. Regardless, I moved it to the rear of the case cause it doesn't suspend from the top with both fans on it. Looks like I will just get 4 more of those Xigmatek 140mm silent fans, the thing is cool running as it is, but more doesn't hurt

    Did some overclocking, I really dig the MSI BIOS screen on these Z77 boards, it's so simplistic and you can use a mouse too. Running my 2600k at 4.6Ghz currently without tweaking any other settings, just changed the clock frequency and that was it. The temperatures are a bit high at 35 degrees idle, but that's OK.

    You didn't need to change anything like load-line calibration? Just the multiplier and set voltage to 1.32v?

    It's an auto-overclock I believe. So simply setting the multiplier is logically enough for it to enable or alter any necessary features.

    Just changed the clock frequency and that's it? There is just 1 other setting you need to manually set and that is the core voltage (vCore). When motherboards are left to automatically decide the voltage for overclocked chips, some tend to throw out excessive voltage or even undervolt, causing instability. It looks like your chip will be happy with 1.32v @ 4.6ghz, so go back into BIOS and manually set it to 1.32v and you're golden. If you notice instability during Prime 95 (or whatever you use to test stability) then nudge the voltage a teeny bit higher to 1.325v, then 1.33v, etc.
    All other settings can be left to auto/defaults since it's just a moderate OC.

    Also keep an eye on temps

    Also GUI-based BIOS's where you can use the mouse have been around since the P67 days (or maybe even earlier), it's not specific to Z77 boards or MSI boards. Though I will admit MSI's implementation is pretty good unlike *cough* Gigabyte *cough* :P

    Yeah, alternatively though they have a feature called OC Genie II, though I have not read into how that works exactly. Apparently it's an auto overclock for your hardware, but I chose to just do it manually. I think I might bump it down to 4.2Ghz though, however I'd be interested to see if I can hit 5Ghz without making any other adjustments aside from the multiplier.

    Neither of my previous Gigabyte boards had a GUI based BIOS actually, they were all ghetto style with keyboard controls only

    I will go and adjust the vCore manually though, it seems that CPU-Z has it sitting at 1.328 volts right now and it crashed on the last Prime95 test. Temperatures seem fine though, 35 degrees idling, however I might have to keep the OC lower through the summer otherwise I will have an even hotter room and it will just overheat my CPU (or me, whichever comes first)
