    The unfortunate truth is that the RGB lighting effects are patented by incompetent fan manufacturers. Since RGB is currently dominating the DIY market, we're stuck with inferior fans.

    Ehm...yes, I guess I should... This is actually the first time I build a PC from scratch, and the Bitfenix Comrade Window case, abeit being the only case to fit the only space available for it in my library, it's quite smallish...I did my best with the cables, but keep in mind I am constantly disassembling and reassembling things to pin down the issue, so the case is a little messy...

    It's just an AIO. It's much quieter than an air cooler and less likely to break your motherboard if you move your PC around.

    Most people that use AIO's are not overclocking.

    To me, "water cooling" is custom loop products. Those people typically ARE overclocking.
    It's an AIO product, gift fom a friend of mine...I used to have the basic heatsink myself, but I grew fond of the little guy. Almost no sound at all, for me...

    Funny man... I live alone, no one has my house keys, BTW, not even the cleaning lady, so I guess no sabotage occurred...


    Anyway...AFAICS, no-one noticed anything visibly amiss in my case (if not a few tangled cables, that is)...am I right?
    I had a couple of reboots last week, and I noticed each of them occurred when I had a DVD into the BD-player...now I know this might be stupid, but I think I will try disconnecting it, tonight, before turning my PC on, and I will try to reboot a few times, to see if that was just a random coincidence...

    I could of overlooked it but I didnít see anything about you changing your CPU. I had an issue on my first build years ago that did a very similar thing to what you are describing. Have you by chance checked your cpu really well, I accidentally got a little bit of thermal paste on one of the pins and kept getting symptoms a lot of what you described. Took me a long time to figure it out. I am more then likely wrong but worth a shot eh?

    These are actually very valid suggestions as well...I guess as soon as the "Christmas delirium" is over (relatives running around home) I'll open up once again the CPU socket, clean its contacts and change its TP for good...it's definitely worth a shot...

    BTW...Merry Christmas to all of you...I can't thank you enough for your continuous assistance and support in solving this...

    I suspect by TP you men 'thermal paste,' but I always thought of TP as an initialism for 'toilet paper.' I've seen thermal interface material referred to as TIM.

    LOL...well, I assumed I was speaking "common tongue" :P ...yep, I meant thermal paste (I kind of picture the funny image of adamsleath's friend with toilet paper stuck in the CPU socket, BTW)...I've been struggling to find some time to disassemble my cooler and CPU...maybe tomorrow... (crossing fingers)

    Some people clean their IHS's with alcohol. Although the recommended wipe is coffee filters (lintless and inexpensive), there are some benighted souls who use TP for cleaning up their TIM.
