A made a couple changes to my CoolJag setup and got pretty good increases in performance. I was finally able to complete a 10 minute (actually did 15) Prime95 run while keeping my temps lower than the C7.
First, was that I realized that the cooler was basically oriented incorrectly in my...
I ordered from frozencpu as well. I had two baggies with brackets in mine and one of them had 1151 brackets inside.
Initially, when I thought I didn't have them I contacted email@example.com and they offered to send the brackets to me. So give that a shot.
Anyone looking for TY-100 fans can get them directly from ThermalRight or, as previously posted, from nansgaminggear.net.
I contacted both via email and was quoted:
$10 shipped internationally direct from ThermalRight (I assume from Taiwan to the US)
$6.99 plus shipping from nansgaminggear.net
The manual that comes with it says that it only supports 775 and 1366 but there is an 115x bracket in the box. It has 3 holes in it. I thought the same thing when I got mine. Double check your accessories.
Ignore the clock speeds in the screen shots. After the benchmark runs the clock speed bounces around and it just happened to be in different spots when I took the screen shots. Both tests were @ 4.2Ghz during load.
The max temps are the relevant info.
So, I've done a little testing with the 2 coolers I have; the CoolJag Falcon II (w/ Noctua A9x14) and the Cryorig C7.
The tests were done in my Abee Acubic T20R with all the case fans unplugged and the side panel off.

These never had heatsinks, here is the link:
I just bent them back and forth a few times and they broke off.
I hope to be able to do some testing tonight. I'm currently pulling air through the heatsink and blowing onto the socket.
I wondered about that as well. I would think you'd get slightly less cooling without the aluminum piece. Whether it would be measurable or not? Not sure.
The mounting brackets for the cooler sandwich between the aluminum and copper base though so you'd need to attach some sort of bolt to...
Just got my CooJag Falcon II. The copper base is attached to the heatpipes somehow (soldered?), I can't see any solder but it seems to be attached well.
The aluminum heatspreader fins are part of the aluminum base that screws to the copper. I don't have a pic but they were easy to bend back...
Finally got my OC stable. Unfortunately I was unable to break 4.4. It could have been worse I guess. :p

I've seen confirmation from people that have received the Asus Maximus VI Impact overseas that it has the C2. So other boards with the C2 revision should be out any time now.
I can't remember where I saved this pic from. :)
Yep, very easy to install everything. I don't think I"m going to put an ODD in. I only use my Blu-Ray drive to rip movies occasionally. I'm just going to hook that up to my media smart server when needed.
I don't understand why no one makes a mini-itx case that will take a large heatsink...
Yeah, I was slightly dissapointed in not getting over 4.5. With more tweaking I may be able to squeeze out a few more Mhz. I can pass IBT standard @ 4.7, but it takes a lot of volts and I didn't really want to go too far over 1.3v. This system is an upgrade from a Xeon 3110/E8400 and I'm still...
It is very well constructed and it feels really solid. It lacks the "rattle" that my old Lian Li had. All of the pieces seem to be cut very precisely and everything slides in to place nicely.
I didn't really have any issues working inside the case despite its size. I like that the top...
Thanks, yeah the heatsink completely dwarfs the board :).
I don't feel like the motherboard is flexing much at all it feels very solid. I guess because the board is so much smaller than a full-sized board it doesn't matter much that only the corners are secured.

Nice! I hope I can get one of these sometime next week. The P8Z77-I looks awesome.
I see that a Noctua NH-D14 will fit on this, any idea if a Thermalright Silver Arrow will? The heatsink portion of the Thermalright is ~4mm lower (40.87mm vs 44mm) than the Noctua. I'm concerned that it...
I read that processors in the two hosts must be of the same processor family and be within 400Mhz of each other in order to minimize issues with the Fault Tolerance setting.
Will FT work between say, a Sandy Bridge Xeon E3-1230 and a 2500/2600k? I wasn't sure how rigid this requirement was...
