got my res ordered gonna order the pump hopefully this week. i also turned the cpu block around made things a little easier and cleaner then i thought originally. and the blue is just amazing. ill try to snag a picture of it under a uv light
It all looks very nice but I still haven't got everything working yet. Looks like I may have to buy a new version of Windows. Hopefully I can get the AlienFX working today. In the new motherboard BIOS it said the CPU was running at 29 Deg which is nice and chilly!
Ok all good so far. I got my AW Windows 7 to work. Just needed to enter the product key. The AS Rock drivers are installing. The only thing that doesn't work yet is the AW Command Center. I'm hoping that an uninstall and reinstall will fix that.
without the ccc working did thew lights default to blue? if it does then i can deal with out running the thermal controller because my mobo is all 4 pin fan headers which means my mobo has its own command center. but also if you get ccc to work let me know what it took as i am very close to software installs on mine

Ok so I think I've worked it out. It seems to lock itself onto a color after a period of time. It's almost like the link between the motherboard and daughterboard gets broken for some reason. Simply restarting the machine wasn't helping but I shut it down completely for a few minutes and then when I turned it back on, the green theme I had selected before shutting it down became active and then I could change the colors 'on the fly' again. I will now assume that if I leave it running for a while I will be stuck on green until I go through this process again. I'm happy enough that it's letting me change the colors at all.
