Obviously this is a combo I am currently running. Only one small problem I want to warn you guys of...


With an Asus Sabertooth 990FX, a Corsair H100 and a Corsair 400R Case, there is a slight fitment issue with the radiator mounting holes vs the 8 pin EPS power connector. Basically you need to move the rad to the left about a half inch to fit the 8 pin EPS plug in the mobo... not a huge deal as the 400R offers a honey-comb mesh that you can put a screw/washer through and mount. Granted, this approach doesn't look QUITE as pretty but it doesn't look bad by any stretch.

That is the problem with all AMD asus boards all the way back to the crosshair formula III and before that, and I think Intel as well.

I recently ordered some slick looking allen head 6/32 threaded black bolts to use in the 400R roof to mount the rad/h100. These certainly look good, and I was able to shift the whole thing to the left to allow more room for the EPS power cable, luckily the bit fenix extensions bend and flex much easier than the standard cables off the silverstone psu.

I'll try and get some photos up. Rig is down at the moment, because my dingy old 7200rpm hdd finally died. And with hdd prices where they are today, I decided to just buy a force gt 120 GB.
