    Anyone have a Asus p8p67 and a Scythe Mugen 2?

    Anyone have a Asus p8p67 and a Scythe Mugen 2?

    Well I wouldn't call this an asus problem, the scythe mugen is massive and I don't think there's any board that really plays well with it & ram with large heatsinks. qtbyre, when you say you have 2 sticks running you mean in the first and 3rd slots right? If so that'd be perfect for me, I'll...

    Anyone have a Asus p8p67 and a Scythe Mugen 2?

    Well as it turns out it should fit, apparently the g.skill heatsinks aren't as tall as others and will just squeeze under the scythe's fan

    Looking for a quiet cooler that doesn't take up half the case

    Alright that wouldn't be too bad. And actually I'm starting to think that the ripjaw x ram I bought should fit under the cooler, apparently the ripjaw series has one of the shorter heatsinks out there (I keep saying to myself "you had to buy the ram with the fins didn't you....") Found some...

    Looking for a quiet cooler that doesn't take up half the case

    How not effectively, are we talking an extra degree or 2 or a 5 degree+ jump? I've got a fractal r3 coming.

    Looking for a quiet cooler that doesn't take up half the case

    Hoping someone can help me with a suggestion, I'm building a quiet pc, and the last part I'm stuck on is the CPU cooler. I have a scythe mugen 2 on the way, but the more I read about it and see that it basically makes the 4th ram slot unusable and the 3rd iffy at best (especially when you're...

    Anyone have a Asus p8p67 and a Scythe Mugen 2?

    Well that's a problem, the one thing I apparently didn't consider when I bought all my parts was the fact that my ram (g.skill ripjaw x) and cpu cooler would not play well together. Anyone tried mounting the fan on the other side of the mugen pulling air off and out the back of the case?

    Anyone have a Fractal Design R2/3 and a Scythe Mugen 2?

    I've got this combination coming, along with some ram that have tall heatsinks (g.skill ripjaw x). All the research I put into picking parts and after I order the one thing I realize that I think might trip me up is that the ram might not fit with the ram heatsink. I've read that the fan can...

    Anyone have a Asus p8p67 and a Scythe Mugen 2?

    If so, how's the clearance for ram? I've been reading some people say it's fine, others say it blocks one or more slots on this board.

    Will this quiet build run too hot?

    Been doing some reading, how's this hd?

    Will this quiet build run too hot?

    Well I haven't bought the ram yet so if you have any other suggestions I'm open. Also open to suggestions on HD, that's probably the one piece I haven't done my research on yet which is why I haven't pulled the trigger on buying it yet. Glad to hear about the PSU, and as for the GPU I was...

    Will this quiet build run too hot?

    I've already bought the video card, case, CPU and motherboard. Everything is new not reused from an old build. Power supply is this one Ram is this

    Will this quiet build run too hot?

    Have a quiet system all built out, now I'm worried if it will run too hot. Case: fractal design r3 CPU: I5 2500k GPU: XFX 6870 (new twin fan design not the one with the reference cooler) CPU Heatsink: Scythe Mugen 2 Motherboard: Asus p8p67 pro Ram: 2 x 4gb G Skill Ripjaws PSU: Antec tp-650 HD...

    Fascinate Owners have Voodoo Sound/Color now!

    I had a captivate until recently, supercurio and the devs putting his work on it were about the only thing that made it worth owning, it's really sad how badly Samsung and its US partners are supporting what is/was a really nice piece of hardware.

    Any good cheap keyboards that light up?

    LOL, thank you, getting ticked when someone asks a question that has been asked 3 times on the front page is one thing, a post from months ago, take a second and link it.
