    LOL NIOCE, btw might wanna just go into settings and bump the fan speed to 60-65% max. On my PowerColor R9 290X cards before I put them under blocks I stress tested each one for a couple of hours and bumping the fan speed up to 60 kept it well below the threshold and 65 was at highest 82 for me!

    Well, AM3+ may make a rise from the grave yet :p.

    I did my system on the AM3+ platform just because I wanted to keep my normal tradition going, it is still a good platform to me :p.

    Well being an Anime fan I enjoy any good joke involving anime. I also enjoy your Deadman Wonderland Profile pic of Shiro :p.

    My setup is what I like to Call Alucard (Thats its literal name) hence the red theme with red liquid flowing through it.

    Unfortunately, anime is only an incroduction to manga. If you enjoy anime, watch manga after anime.

    Watch Manga? Hmmm, I always just chose to read manga but I guess I was doing it wrong :p But do not fret as I read manga all the time!

    As far as builds go, I normally decide before hand what the theme will be and go from there. Hellsing was this computers theme this go round I built and next who knows. With that Gold Griever, you could do a DBZ theme :D

    well that's the case with most anime and manga i read ... except when i discovered Hellsing Ultimate ... quite the good way to go ... after a disastrous Anime adaptation xD

    and to not stroll off topic too much :
    poll aftermarket cooler

    1. MK-26 2x120/140
    2. Arctic Accelero Xtreme IV
    3. Arctic Accelero Hybrid II
    4. Gelid Icyvision

    (keeping in mind that i already have a MK-26 but i would need to re buy new RAM VRM heatsinks)

    ahah ... Kakarot SSJ3? buhahahaha i need a 2nd 290 ... maybe a sapphire Tri-X black and yellow mouarf
    @GhostRyder also if you want to laugh my next build would have been named Red Fury(Red Man/Wretched egg) if i had a deal on a red/black MB like the ASRock 990FX killer .... but i ended with a blue one xD

    well that's my idea but the Carbide Specs 01 is not too wide ... i tested and i think it will barely fit ... now i need to find a etailer with reliable heatsink for RAM/VRM with thermal tape or maybe Arctic silver thermal adhesive compound i rather not use the 2nd because if one day i jump on the Watercooling FC plate train i would like to remove the HS without ripping off the RAM/VRM :roll:

    So got my AM1H-ITX a box to keep it nice and cosy. :p

    And then I bought some Mushkin memory to replace the temporary Avexir sticks.

    Thinking Case and HDD are going to be next on the list.

    You could always cut the panel and add a "cowl" (like a muscle car hood).

    Got a SilverStone ML06 for my mini-ITX machine, which has now been dubbed the "Shoe Box". Only needing SSD and HDD now. Still not sure which one first.

    The cardboard in it is intended as a platform for a 3,5 inch drive.

    I keep holding back on the SSD because I always hope for something new to happen. And HDD is for that plus backup. Planning to make it a HTPC, but for now I don't really have a role for it. XP Also added another fan when I bought the case.
