    Thanks so much! I def will have to get to doing that- enjoying the upgrade for now though, went from 1 FPS at highest settings in FFXIV:ARR to 70 with the new build... its so... nice!

    All you need for cleaning dust is a compressed air can. Spray it, quickest and easiest way.
    They sell them everywhere. In Australia they sell them at Officeworks, I'm sure they'll have them at
    a similar shop where you live.

    Small update to my build (signature for more) Asus 280X TOP.

    Added, Asus 280x TOP, Asus Xonar DGX, LG IPS monitor, Sidewinder X4 Keyboard, new headphones, external storage.

    I knew it was going to be bigger than my current 7850 but I was still slightly surprised of the size difference. Sorry for the picture quality but the cam isn't great and the lighting isn't either.

    It's better to just put the name of your stuff instead of Newegg links, makes it easy for anyone to tell at a glance what your components are

    Weird you went with i5 2400 instead of i5 2500K or i7 2600K...your motherboard is great for overclocking but sadly you won't be able to OC your chip, shame it's a pretty solid GPU as well (GTX770) that could use higher CPU clocks in modern games :S

    here's my setup right now (cleaned it up). My computer is temporary I emptied my 650d and im looking for another case but I'll probably stick to this ghetto tech bench setup for a while. I don't feel like spending money on a case right now. It does the job for now so it's good. I replaced my very old and broken HD555's for HD558's... they feel identical but that's a good thing because I loved the HD555's.

    Friend finished his first build today, thought I'd share the pic he sent me, I don't think he did a bad job for his first time.

    Bleh, a black Prodigy would've gone better with...y'know...the black optical drive, monitor, black keyboard, black headphones, black mouse, black mousepad, black xbox, etc. I guess the white desk was enough :P

    It's definitely a beautiful case on it's own though, and it's no small feat (no pun intended) building in it either

    H100i is great. People don't go out and post when a product is working well, only when there's a problem and the chance is so small for anything to go wrong.

    Long warranty and Corsair customer service is great. If the H100i has an issue and damages anything in your PC, corsair will replace it free of charge (y)

    Yeah but it won't replace the other damaged part.
    H100i is great, but it better be for that price; Personally I don't think it's work anywhere close that price premium for the benefit it gives. It's the best "just install it"* cooler you can buy, so of course there will be price premiums, but the steepness of requirements and its size is a turn-off.

    * Since you can't actually buy the Swiftech H220

    You don't really need a h100i for a haswell CPU. It doesn't produce allot of heat, so the premium price just seems wasted.
    Overclocking it will cause it to heat up below the IHS before the H100i gets a chance to cool it. A single fan hydro or comparable aircooler will be more than sufficient.

  17. #12517
    Yeah i think i'd go for air cooling over liquid. My current system has had liquid cooling since the day i bought it and had no issues with it during the 3 years ive had it. But it's just the thought of one day it leaking and destroying my Pc that cost more than my car D:

    Judging by the performance of the H60 (only AIO cooler I've owned to date) an H80i would be the best middle ground, price wise, and performance wise. The H60 I have, held an APU 6800K stable @ 5.0Ghz (1.53v) under Prime95 for four hours with a max temp of 63c. Impressive for a slim, single 120mm rad config.

    I'm kinda with Majesticii, in that the money seems wasted when there are hidden gems out that that perform just as well, if not better.

    Most fluids in those coolers are non-conductive. Worst that could happen is the cooling unit failing, thus the CPU goes into thermal throttle. It will likely never kill the pc, it'll just be a mess to clean.
