tired of updating my situation inside other threads where it doesnt belong so heres a new one :P
3770k has been stable in terms of the ssd yet power is fluctuating with 4 computers in room + other stuff. Put my 3770k and my e3, combined pull of 258watts, onto a small 625VA UPS so that the small power blips wont effect them anymore.
Transfered my 3770k from my beat up antec sonata 2 into a TT V3. the TT V3 has 2 120s on the top, 1 120 on the back and 1 120 on the door. My H100 cant fit in any of those positions without hitting the motherboard. its ridiculous. If i put the h100 on the top 2 120 slots, it hits the RAM cause the motherboard is at the top of the case. if i try to place the h100 on the rear 1 120, it wont fit because the h100 pipes are hitting the top of the case, both directions tried. if it sits on the door in the designated 120 slot, it hits the psu on the bottom of the case =\ had to zip tie it out of position on the door.
The door is the best place for it to sit now, but now it blocks any chance of me adding my GPU to the setup. spent over 700 on this setup so far and cannot keep putting money on. i have a dremel and a carbide tip, but i cant cut through the steel of the sonata case for the h100, and im wary of destroying the V3 for similar result
