Asus Crosshair 4 Extreme MB

AMD Phenom II x4 1100t (black edition)

2 ATI ASUS 6970

G.SKILL Ripjaws X + Turbulence II Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD

That would mean one of the custom aftermarket water coolers you'd build yourself.

A couple good sites for water cooling kits and parts:
Frozen CPU: http://www.frozencpu.com/
Xoxide: http://www.xoxide.com/


Here is a Build Log using a Corsair Obsidian 800D with Liquid Cooled Dual Loop System

Hey i appreciate it a lot. I looked at these sites before you mentioned them and was in over my head, but i think the build log will help. Also i do have a lot of common sense so i know i can put it all together.

You can find a lot more of those build logs and guides scattered around the 'Net.
I've seen a few good video series as well on YouTube.

It's also very fussy work.
If you don't get it right a fluid leak in the case can be a major headache.

Check out EK Waterblocks website - they have it all in terms of quality water blocks. They have a full cover
motherboard block for the Crosshair IV - really simplifies cooling the mb stuff. Be sure to check out the configurator.

Good luck - water cooling is a lot of fun to design and install - and really pays off in lower temps across the board.

Hello Blue,

I was wondering not to get off your subject here... I am building somewhat the same system and would like to know how well it runs with the memory you have posted? I am having a hard time finding memory for this and looking for something in stock (lol). Look forward to your reply.

Thanks.

I see... Well before I spend a lot of money on memory, I am looking for someone who has used other memory with this board with no complications as the only qualified list to go by tried and true is the one that Asus has on their site. And that list is rather short if you ask me.

I will continue to do my homework in hopes of finding someone who has used non confirmed memory with this boards features as I wait for my parts to arrive.

Thank you Blue.

Hey there, if you have some time, I'd really suggest spending some time at http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=...

You'll find more info than you will know what to do with, also there are pretty easy on newcomers as long as you are respectful :)

Blue...

Well with all the homework I have done.. I came to a conclusion this evening. Buy this...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231371

2x2 Flare kits x2. 8gb is all I will probably ever need since I do not plan on doing any commercial grade graphics animation or home cinema processing. This is a gaming rig with the occasional video processing and nothing heavy or at the same time as the other.

These ram are on the QVL for the CH4 Extreme and have awesome speeds to boot.

So I look forward to getting this all put together. :pt1cable:

Blue..

My system:
MB= Crosshair IV extreme
cpu= 1100t x6
case= level 10 gt
psu= 1200 corsair mod
video= 2 radeon 6850
cpu cooler= coolit vantage a.l.c.
ram = ?

I have done allot of reading for the ram and maybe it was a typo, but I noticed you had a x4 processor, check your specs, I dont think it will utilize al of the speed of the ram you are looking at. according to the pdf on ram suggestions once you hit the 2000 and 2133 kits you will need a six core cpu. just an fyi. I plan on getting the ram you are looking at and the build should be done in a couple wks. hope this helps.

hehe... I believe that has to be a typo. I don't think there is a 1100T x4 processor.

Stranger things have happened.. I could be wrong I guess. :pt1cable:
