    you better had removed your system specs.... everyone can see its a gtx 570, a set of ridgebacks, and a 1090T, on a Crosshair IV Formula plus a Thermaltake Frio:p

    EDIT:
    Very funny, experimenting with Text colors :D

    Looks like a very nice board!

    I just got a new toy in. Going to either sell it on here, or use it. Pics coming in a little bit.

    I wanted a cheap X58 motherboard for my i7 920 cruncher that has been sitting around since I replaced it with another i7 970. I had a ASRock X58 Extreme last year and it did the job. Not going to push this board to hard at all as it is just going to be a dedicated crunching rig:)

    I'm guessing it has a large shroud on it typically?

    No idea. I've got the stock 970 heatsink on and it sucks balls. Idle is nearly 10º higher over the CM212+. It gets super hot, super fast. The fan spins so freakin fast but the fin spacing is so tight no air gets through. Lame...

    whoops forgot that I've got a new Heatsink(x2 actually) and pair of fan controllers to play with :)

    It typically does have a large shroud on it.

    This is a pretty big hint:

    I was going to guess something Thermalright, but I don't remember one with a shroud, off to google I go.

    V6 GT?

    Outfitted with Arctic Cooling PWM fans. White sleeving is on the way for them!

    Edit: Thermaltake Frio on the left, Coolermaster V6GT on the right:

    I'm getting about 1-2C lower idle temps with the V6GT. Looks like the Frio will be up on BST soon.
