    Assuming it works on LGA1156, I would be very tempted to trade you my H50 :)

    its just the default/most common LED color.

    my case has blue LED's in the front, cause it came with it... but it also has an off button for it :p

    i actually dont like LED's at all... PC's, like children, should be seen and not heard... and if possible, not seen at all.

    i bet it's easier on the ears.
    what is a good way to clean the boards? my black board isn't so black anymore and i am going to have to clean it when i get the WCing parts(since the loop is off and out of the case it will be easier)

    A can of compressed air is a good way to do it and for stubborn shit cotton buds and Isopropyl

    am so happy that my RV02 comes with filters on the bottom fans i can just imagine how much cat fluff and other dust 3x 180mm fans pushin 300cfm would suck into my case

    in response to many people above, i want to share an observation on the 'evolution' of a techie that i noticed some time ago.

    stage 1: ignorance
    stage 2: learns to tweak in-program settings
    stage 3: learns about drivers/general OS tweaks
    stage 4: starts to modify OS settings
    stage 5: learns basic BIOS stuff
    stage 6: starts phsically modding hardware - be it coolers, fans, or LED stuff - looks come first, then aesthetics.
    stage 7: aesthetics kick in. the LED lights and noisy fans go away, and a more simple appearance is chosen.
    stage 8: an overall purpose is deemed for each system, and everything is dedicated to that purpose. un-neccesary hardware (and software?) is removed.

    stage 9: ????
    stage 10: profit!


    this was more or less a patter i observed in many of my LANner friends, but i'm sure you'll all have seen similar trends. most of us are at stage 7/8
    _JP_ and (FIH) The Don say thanks.

    stage 8: you decide you want to either:
    - cool the system like a maniac
    - light the bitch up like a disco show, or
    - make a (near) silent machine

    Stage 9 is going anal with stage 8
