Its mostly for looks, but I completley forgot about the K62 - might want to show him that.

I just change the cpu in my k62 today , at the same time I install a Noctua, I really apreciate to not have to remove the motherboard, cases with hole at the back of the cpu are the way to go.

Thinking of using the Lancool PC-K62 instead, and using a Maximus III Formula - any thoughts?

now you are talking........ I love my Formula III, the sound card is amazing, and the ROG connect is something to try, you can adjust the OC with a laptop or an other PC. And the price is very good for a board of this class.


I just order a EK full board water block for it.

I bought the Rampage Extreme back when I got my Q9550 - loved it. Might get the Maximus then. Good color scheme too

good order it.... you will like the Maximus (it even come with a nice sticker to put on the side of the case ) and the lancool is my favorite case too, it's the one who collect less dust here in my house, completely tool lest , the clip hold the GOU card very firm too.

the fan at the top are well organize to they blow the air at the back, I feel a draft of air with my Antec 1200 .

I actually don't like the Maximus III Formula. From what I've seen the P7P55D series tends to OC just as well, and for a lot cheaper. That said, if you really want it, far be it from me to stop you.

Raserei408: Your comments are appretiated, by me atleast The only reason for the Maximus III Formula is because the client really, really, really, likes the looks of it. If it is what he wants, thats what he will get.

Everything look good, except I'll get the Strider Plus instead of the Strider.
