    Little update to my setup since the last time- upgraded RAM to 16GB (need 4 sticks if I ever move on to X79), added an additional 1TB Spinpoint F3 HDD, and installed an OEM GT 530 2GB card for additional F@H production. Pic really highlights the dust too :laugh:

    Plan on getting sleeved extensions for the 24pin and the two 8pin PCIe cables. When I get them I will move the HDDs to the empty rack and remove the one in front of the fan for more airflow.

    Dude. That is the greatest use of a fan I have seen in the last 10 years. Badass.

    I have basically the same laptop except I have 6 GB of ram. I am actually impressed in its ability to play games. It just crunches most of the time though.

    Installed the 720be earlier so decided to try mounting my silver arrow horizontally. ( had to ghetto rig a double back plate in order to make a mounting system that would work with the heatsink this way, as it blocks all the screws, managed to get it working but was bricking it the entire time incase I overtightened it, turns out the double back plate was so strong though that the x-bracket started to bend rather than the motherboard XD)

    Got a bracket just incase the mounting system breaks :p at-least I'll still have my gpu! lol

    Bought an Ultrasharp U2412M earlier today and retired my Samsung 2343BWX. For a lower end IPS, I sure am impressed with it. Pics later :D

    By the by, does anyone think I should be worried about NB temps with my set up like that?

    The middle fan on the silverarrow is positioned low so it should draw cool air through the NB but I'm not sure, also I can't touch the NB to find out if it's hot lol
