  1. Hmm...interesting. I'll have to keep an eye on this one. I always like to see Stacker Mods.
  2. I don't know. I have both the V10 and the V8....and have lan'd with both. As long as your careful and use the backplate, it shouldnt be to much of an issue. As for the V10 TEC issue.... I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a TEC. *But* it does make an awesome air cooler. I was a beta tester for the V10 and my TEC didn't work out of the box....but I still use it over my ZALMAN CNPS9700. It still makes a helluva air cooler. But then again, I didn't pay for mine...so Idk. If you could get one with a working TEC, I would say yes.... but otherwise, there are plenty of air coolers that perform on par or better for cheaper. Good luck, mate.
  3. Heh, I thought the green masking was paint at first. I was interested to see how that worked with the camo. Could have been a cool "sci-fi" camo or something. Idk. Anyway....looks awesome. Cheers. ~~
  4. As long as the cooler is mounted correctly on the CPU, it shouldn't be an issue. That is, unless the heatsink is causing the memory to become unseated. It should be fine. Can you post some pictures?

    V10 sequel?

    Yeah, I swapped out the stock fans on mine for some lower cfm silent fans. Haven't really seen a difference in cooling....but then again, I don't really do any crazy overclocking.

    Which case?

    Really? Since when? That's a shame....

    Which case?

    Actually, 900's are notorious for dust, since they don't have any kind of fan filters whatsoever. I originally bought a 900 because I really liked the design, but after owning one.... Ugh. Everything is just a pain with that case. Dust, cable management, you name it. The new Stackers are seriously awesome. It just works. Plenty of room for whatever. And it just looks cool. In the year or so I've owned mine, I haven't had any trouble with dust. They come with built in dust filters and really all you have to do is wipe them down every once in a while. Cheers. ;D
  8. Just take out the top corner fan. Or the whole fan bracket. You really don't need that many fans.
  9. Or, you could just use the included fan brackets off the side panel.
  10. All you should need to do is remove the four screws from the top and it should slide out pretty easily. As for removing the fan from the bezel, its only attached by tabs. The tabs are fairly resilient, so don't be afraid to use a little force.

    V10 Beeping?

    Yes, taking apart the TEC will void your warranty. Slugbug, are you sure its the TEC and not you motherboard? There shouldn't be any noise coming from it if its unplugged... Check your motherboard manual for beep codes. Will post a V10 fix in a bit...
  12. Heh... Was just gonna post that. =P
  13. Meh. In all honesty, it looks like the bastard love child of a Cosmos and a Stacker. I'll pass... Next please.

    V10 Beeping?

    It means that the TEC isn't working properly. My guess is that you have a bad thermal sensor(which is pretty common in early production units. ) I can post a fix if you'd like. Otherwise, you'd be best off just submitting a part request for a new one, or just RMA'ing the whole unit. http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/erma.php

    v10 fan issues

    Well, if you wanna pay for shipping, I can just send you my old ones. They were really only used during the beta, so they're good as new. Otherwise, I think the stock fans were rated at about 70 CFM, so anything around there should be fine. These are pretty decent sound-to-performance wise.

    v10 fan issues

    How do you mean exactly? I replaced mine as soon as the beta was over...so Idk. =o

    V10 question

    In response to the OP: I've got XMS3, which is essentially the same size as Dominator.
  18. That looks fine. Fyi, there are 4 hex screws on the top that you can remove to get access to the fan if you need to change it after the heatsink is installed...
  19. I think its something like 180mm or so... I'm not sure. Fits in my Stacker 830 with plenty of room to spare...although, you'd need to take the side fan panel off...
  20. Dang...Well, is this kind of noise normal? Is there anything I can do about it that won't void my warranty?
  21. Has anyone else had issues with this PSU being overly-loud? I'm not sure if its been like this since I originally got it or its just been a recent issue...(My case fans are pretty loud, so I didn't noticed it until I went to replace my case fans with some UltraSilent Xigmatek's....) Would I be voiding my warranty by replacing the PSU fan? =O
  22. Sounds like you're talking about the side-panel fan bracket... I am talking about the cross-flow fan that mounts to the mobo-tray itself...
  23. Well, I've got a 9800GTX, which I think is approximately the same size as a 285...and it won't fit with a Crossflow, so I think you're gonna have to remove it.

    Wait...so you're rocking an 840 now? I thought you had an HAF...or a Cosmos...
