    About time Vulcan I was waiting forever. I almost wanted to get that case but I settled on my HAF 932. Also, awesome that your best friend is a chick who loves computers. THAT IS RARE!!!

    Cable Management! :D

    Seriously, that's such a nice looking case. Too bad my dusty room doesn't allow me to get one...

    Overall I would say they are decent....however I had to put the 4870 in the last x16 slot
    It went to hot when OC´ing
    I dont know if it´s because of the big top fan - blowing air down, and interferring with
    the airstream to the GPU blower?
    After moving the GPU the temps went down to "normal"

    I am in the middle of a OC event - (and that is not done in 2 hours:ohwell:) - so I can provide temps and results later....If you are interested

    Well....and she is looking not too bad (the chick:D)

    I most say, after watching your HAF 932 thread and my friends setup - well If she did´nt had the first buy, my first choice was the HAF

    Well that was because of the price I went with Kingston....my first choice where Corsair´s
    but they cost almost the double. (prices here in Denmark are not the best)

    I have not, yet, messed with the memory´s performance - but will soon
    Right now they are running 535 MHz (single) at stock voltage.

    Your absolutly right, about the cable management, but I figured - it is not final - I have already
    moved the GPU and rotated the PSU 180 degrees - so eventually, when I am satisfied with the coooling performance and the OC I will manage the cables.

    About the dust - it takes 10 seconds to un-plug the Skeleton - 1 minute to take it outside and blow it clean with air-spray or an air-compressor (remember to have a water-filter on the compressor) - 1 minute to take it back and about 10 seconds to plug it in again - sooo I can live with that :p

    The irony is that you can't use massive tower-type heatsinks due to clearance issues, i don't think a S1283 would fit :cry:
