Default Upgrade is finished

Well, my upgrade is finished just have to reinstall everything. Upgraded to the 780i FTW with a cpu-340 Koolance WB, viperjohns northbridge WB and replaced the southbridge heatsink with a fan. 4 yate yoon 83 cfm fans on the radiator, compression fittings and a lapped cpu. Havent been able to test much but booted at 3.6 with idle temps at 30 at 1.315 vcore. No load temps yet. This mobo has much more bios settings than the 750i FTW and love it so far. Now if I can just get to 4.0 I'll be happy. I'll post pics sometime this weekend.

Default Re: Upgrade is finished

I went with the koolance just because I've heard good and bad reviews and wanted to see for myself. I'm very sattisfied with it. Since upgrading from my dtek v1 and going with the high cfm fans ive noticed. 10-15 degrees in idle and load. And its perty! lol but yea so far with this board 3.95 is possible where as with the 750i it wasnt even close. hopefully 4 will happen soon just got to tweak it some more.
