  1. Project 2501 is turning into a dream machine (see specs below), was wondering if anyone has any experience with audioengine A5+ speakers. Turning into an Audiophile and looking for the best quality I can get (within reason). I have a Soundblaster ZxR pushing some Corsair SP2500's right now, but looking to eventually upgrade into something better.
  2. The MB manufacturer, ASUS, won't do anything, and needless to say I've raised #### with Corsair, so, we'll see where that goes. Had an AIO pump go bad on me (surprisingly the Water 3.0 Extreme), was able to return that to the retailer, and in a pinch picked up the Corsair H100iGTX model. Apparently, they have issues with some motherboards, the cooling block will not sit properly on the MB and will leave a 1/4 inch gap, I only found this out AFTER installing it, and people on their forums have complained to Corsair about it, and recommend using rubber washers on the back of the MB to make it fit. Well, needless to say that's not happening, so I go to take the thing off, and the screws got stripped while #### them in place. Now I have a water block on a $350.00 MB that I can't remove. After hours of MB surgery, I finally get it off, and what happens? Scratched a tracer. MB is dead, and un-replaceable because it's an X-97 model. Lovely. Find on Amazon an updated Water 3.0 Extreme, (BEAUTIFUL!! Those Riing fans are so quiet and the mounting hardware is 1000 times better!!), and found a Gigabyte Gaming 7 MB, so my PC is back up and running, but I'm going after Corsair like a #### shark. :angry:
  3. Just an FYI, avoid Corsair products at all costs. Their products just blew a $350.00 motherboard of mine, and they won't do a thing about it. NEVER, under any circumstances, use such an over-hyped, overpriced product of theirs.
  4. Yesterday morning, the pump blew on my Extreme, temp shot up to 93 degrees C within 7 seconds, just about yanked the power cord to prevent a total blowout. No overclocking being done. EXTREMELY disappointed as this is only about one year old. Going to Microcenter to pick up an air cooler until I figure out what Thermaltake will hopefully do about this.
  5. Relax, rather it be released when ready and not on time and buggy.
  6. Hey guys, picked up Boarderlands 2 over the weekend (LOVE the Steam Summer Sale!!), and can't map the C and D buttons on the mouse, no problem setting the A and B on the left side, but the C and D seem unresponsive. Something I'm missing?
  7. Can you cut these down to match the size of the DRACONEM mouse pad?
  8. I'm looking for a wrist rest to use with this, are you able to cut down the Thermaltake ones without them falling apart?
  9. When are you going to make the Ring Fans with adjustable RPM's?
  10. Ditch the optical and get a USB external for when (rarely) needed.
  11. Guys, it's been six months, seriously, what's the deal with these?
  12. I remember that white PSU, I wanted that very badly for my build but you guys never released it.
  13. I have the same case and the Water 3.0 Extreme. Fits in the top, take the top fan out, even has the proper hole placement for the screws. Plenty of room up top too, shouldn't interfere with your RAM.
  14. I have a set of Corsair SP2500 speakers, quite good to be honest. Do you guys keep speakers on your desk, or elevate them on stands / shelves? I have these on my desk, but am considering putting them on shelves on my wall, I kinda have them rigged there now, and am am getting a better effect from them having them a little further away. These things can really crank, and having them close seems to throw the balance of everything off.
  15. This bag no longer has the front handle, the top clips, or the 5 compartments inside, it only has 3.
  16. Those specs are completely different......
  17. Probably use that to build a liquid cooled Steam Box.
  18. Really need a complete list of what you're building with to give you a proper answer. The amount and model of your GPU(s) will be the biggest factor.
  19. Look what just showed up in the mail today! New Ventus mouse from the Christmas game you guys had. Got to hook it up and try it out against my Level 10.
  20. Want to wish everyone on the boards a Merry Christmas / Hanukkah / New Year. Looking forward to new products from Tt! Have fun and be safe peeps!
  21. I've heard of people using a coffee filter, so they don't leave any paper residue on the chip.
  22. I compared the Creative Zonar ZXR and the ASUS Phoebus (sp?) with the on board audio of my MB (Maximus Formula 7), and it honestly isn't worth the investment for me. The on board audio of my MB either matches or comes extremely close to that of $200+ sound cards. If I had a cheaper MB, maybe I'd invest in one, but the higher end MB's just don't need them in my opinion.
