    still a good disc, but for 99$ it would have been REALLY nice if it were the sata3 version:D

    I need to find some sort of cooling solution for the NB/vREGs and route the cables better up by the GPU, but I'm pretty happy with it

    If you can see under the H50, there's an aluminum HSF that I stuck on the vREGs and it does wonders, however, with no airflow around the mobo it and the NB HSF are extremely hot, to the point that it hurts to touch them. I think I'll pick up an Antec Spot Cool, it should be perfect for this application :cool:

    Yeah, its not the SATA 3 don. I don't have SATA 3 on my motherboard anyway.

    I forgot to post these two pics up of my cable management with the NZXT cables.

    I love that case :D Have the same problem routing cables around the GPU area though...
    Also, in a low airflow situation there can be some real heat buildups above the GPU, especially when your cooler doesn't throw the air out of the case.

    This it the biggest problem, it's the main reason why I leave the side panel off, I did have a fan in the spare expansion slots above the GPU, which helped, but I haven't put it back in yet after the H50 installation.

    The biggest problem indeed, and the reason I'm planning on a 120mm blowhole. I'm going to do some test runs with the top panel off instead of the side now :)

    I don't have the skills to do that, so I'm limited with whatever fans I can add to it how it is now...I'll probably add a side fan at some point (just need to find a spare 120mm fan) or maybe one in the spare expansion slots again...but for now leaving the side panel off works quite nicely :)

    Well the hole itself won't be a problem since I can cover that up with radgrills. The only problem is perfectly aligning the drill holes here :)

    I dunno :(

    Im either gonna cut the case to get it to fit or i was offered a Thuban heatsink with the heatpipes so i will see tomorrow cause the case is suppose to get here tomorrow but it has to come through nashville and if anybody has seen the news, nashville is flooded due to horrible rains. so maybe tomorrow or maybe saturday.

    can you cool the cpu without the fan on the cooler?

    then you might have a bit more room

    the amd stock cooler isnt that bad, if you just take off the fan and add a 92/120mm fan on top of it its actually pretty decent and can take a small overclock imo

    Good for about an 8c drop in CPU temps and 14c drop in GPU temps (load) with fan on max, it's loud but no offensive (unlike AMD stock HSF)
