    I'd also suggest getting rid of those ugly case stickers - they look really tacky. Also, why do you have cables spewing out of all the front USB ports? You'd be better off plugging the mouse, keyboard and other peripherals into the rear USB ports and using the front ports for things like USB drives.

    Although I agree with the fact that what VeritronX is reporting is not great, I stand by my statement that LLC simply adds extras volts (or increments of) to aid stability. Not sure your example above is exactly right, but I have 10 levels that I can choose from. LLC1 may only add .1v, whereas LLC10 may add 2v. (I have no idea of the actual values). I don't think the extra volts apply until they are required, i.e. under load. The extra v absorbs the vdroop, as suggested, but if I set the LLC too high the vdroop won't account for the volts thereby displaying higher volts than you set in the bios. that's my understanding of how it works explained in my own 'special' way, and is supported from my own testing.

    Following my 'logic' then, VeritronX has his LLC set too high and needs to adjust it accordingly. This will also lower his temperatures somewhat.

    Unfortunately that isn't how LLC works at all, it's a modified control scheme that's supposed to make the voltage stay as close as possible to the set voltage. This is usually an on or off setting, not in increments.. I think only gigabyte does that and I'd assume their settings relate to how aggressive their LLC is.

    It's not too bad anyways, the voltage regulation on my board is really nice, runs cooler than any board I've ever had.. and while the voltage is higher it's pretty predicatable overall. I just with it could still drop the voltage down when idle, you don't need 1.36v all the time :thumbdn:

    nop its quite lower than in the bios, my bios voltage is 1.280 and under load its 1.264 something if thats what you mean.

    The board comes with a strip of blue led's above the cpu socket which changw with the voltage that my mobo is using.

    Eg: blinking,the no. of leds that turn on

    no, the duct tape is holding the thermacol below the pump bracket, its screwed in actually there are a few photos of it in on of my posts above.

    I will tidy up the loop in may 2012, saving up money for a 120gig ssd atm.


    those cables are for charging my phone/bluetooth headset and other two are for my xbox controller.

    A year later I decided to go with acrylic tubing..

    Sleeving with MDPC sleeve:

    Heatshrink less sleeving is sooo much easier and a time saver!

    First time using Ek waterblocks, I have sticked to XSPC and Koolance ever since their infamous galvanic corrosion in the past due to improper coatings. The block quality is really really good and well build, hopefully it wont fail on me because I use distilled water. I really don't like dye's.

    I will be using 2 colour tubing in my build:) Red and black. I wish Primochill used a protective wrap around the tubes because they scratch so easily :(

    After a lot of struggling with getting the lengths of the bends right and after wasting a lot of tubing, I realised that I need a tool and this is what I made. This made my life a lot easier..

    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]


    Finally got all my tubes bent and sanded down! now to wash and dry them:)
