    Do you still need Ultramon with Eyefinity? Cause what EF basically does is emulate one big monitor iirc...

    Yes, I could not find a third Samsung and two more VW266H's were more than I wanted to spend, so I sold all three and bought three of the same monitors.

    As Thracken said, Eyefinity will fix that. However, my CCC is broken and I can't set up an Eyefinity group ATM. I was waiting for the last monitor to try to fix it (which may take a reinstall of the OS).

    Just think, you can push it even further if needed. Nice to see you got a kickass card. :toast:

    I would be a teeny bit concerned, create a fan profile you may want to do 60% @ 70C with a minimum of 30%.

    Retired the Megashadow, in the process of making sure the H100 is in working order.

    Too bad Corsair doesn't make GPU's and motherboards for the complete themed rig;)

    Looks good in there man! I like the idea of the rear as intake for that cooler.

    If the PSU fails outside of its 5yr warranty (knock on wood), an 850w+ Corsair PSU is next on the list :D

    With my modest OC, the temps with the H100 on low are besting the MS with the YateH-12 @ 100%. Haven't had the opportunity to run it through its paces fully with stress tests though.

    With what I have seen so far I am pretty pleased with the performance. Noise is a little more than loud on the performance setting, but on low its near silent. I think it will perform even better when I can get my hands on some decently priced AP15s.

    I actually got the TP750 local, too good of a price to pass up at the time.

    Ok for me I consider that stupidly high. To me something is wrong and your ambient inside the case has to be HOT. Game with the side panel off if your not already doing so and report back.

    With what I saw, the noise wasn't worth the Extreme level for the fans. I found the 2nd setting, balanced, was the best in noise and performance;)

    O_O Dear god, why did you get a beast of a case and put a tiny little thing in it. It's taking a Rolls, then taking out the engine and putting in one of a tractor. A very strong tractor, but a tractor none the less.
    I always do, I have one of those little zalman fan controllers so I kinda need to keep it open. Should I take off the cooler and put on new thermal paste?

    By the time you go to Windows 7, you can use a USB drive to pretty much take care of all your floopy DOS type stuff and then some. I have a 4GB drive at work that is bootable to BartPE and has tools on it, including Ghost and command-line stuff.

    If you need a floppy, I think a USB one makes a little more sense, as you can use it with more than just a desktop (laptop, thin client, etc.).

    This should go to System Builder's Advice...

    BD reader is OK for now (you can get for $30-50) and stock HSF is good unless you want to OC, then you need something in the $40 range or better.
