I don't recall if the Asus boards have triangles marked but the CPU and socket also have two little notches.

Here's a bigger pic :)

Oh and when I put in the CD Drive do I just "pop" the shield thing off in front of the case?

No. I'm not familiar with that cooler but I'm guessing it's insulation.
Check the manual, lol.

The cooler looks pretty sweet. Unfortunately, beyond overkill for my needs.

It's overkill for me too! I just got it so I could get the Non LP Corsair Ram and very good stability for stock clock speeds

This universal mounting bracket is a MAJOR PAIN to put on the back of the mobo! It will not go on!! lol

Whatever you do, don't force anything. And I think you've redefined the term 'overkill' :D

Been having problems accessing the site... anyone else? :??: 

ATX boards typically require 9 standoffs. Refer to the manual... which case are you using?

Same here, but seems to be slowly improving again. So how's the standoff situation looking... holes don't line up?

I got it fixed now. Some were already in the case and I didn't notice. Thats all fixed now. I'm installing the The Radiator of the H100. I am having a few problems though. I don't really know how to install it with the case I have :/

oh, lol... sorry. Wouldn't it just use the same holes from the two fans? Crikey, I really just need to shut up, you'll figure it out!

People need to stream live video of their builds so we can watch lol

I'm was kinda relieved to see the Frys here doesn't have the 500R currently in stock. It's 8:36, I could've made a break for it lol. Maybe I can sleep off my case fever.

Ahaha! The second I saw this case I new it was the one :D  I also have one question on the H100 theres a Molex where would I even plug that in?!!?

Plug that into the PSU.

It's too short and from the looks of it, I don't think it will even go in the PSU

Particularly in a mid-tower you should have a couple connectors reaching that far... not sure where you're running the cables.

Don't look at me... Jeff from the Corsair H100 demo video said to plug it into the PSU, lol.

Yeah, that's the one, looks like a standard molex connector.

So what cord comes out of the PSU to the 2 pin molex thing?

I'll venture to guess you're running a Corsair PSU as well? You'd think two of their own connectors would be a clean fit.

The connector will go into the PSU. It just means that the H100 only needs 2 of the 4 pins to work.

Well, I don't want to push you. I'm just willing to help, as are others. It's your call, of course.

If you look at the cables from your PSU, it will seem like A LOT of crap and it may freak people out on their first build. I was a little intimidated myself the first time around. All these cables with different connectors... where the hell do they all go.

Maybe this will help...

According to your manual, your XFX1000 comes with:


Modular FDD is for Floppy Disk Drives, which you probably don't have. That's already two you can ignore.

Modular Motherboard Con: 20+4 pin > Your board's 24 pin connector

Modular Peripheral (up to 8) > These are the molex... so far, you only need 1 for your cooler and can ignore the others

Mosular SATA (up to 11) > For your SSD/HDD/DVD drives, you'll probably only need 2-4 of them

Modular 6+2 pin (PCI-E) > These go into your GPU, if needed. You don't have your GPU yet, so you can ignore those too

Modular ATX12V (4+4 pin) / EPS12V (8 pin) > The ATX 4+4 pin plugs into your board, you can ignore the 8pin EPS

If you look at all those cables and group them by connectors-type, it may suddenly not seem like so many.

Ok I got all the Cords separated. Do you know of a way I can take a picture with my iPhone and upload it somewhere so I can show you where I am?
