    Pulled the H70 off, popped on the AMD cooler, installed software, made the light green, lost 10c in load and 5c idle.

    I don't care who made it. :laugh: Works damn good.


    No playing favorites for me!

    I got a set, works great at stock. Doesn't overclock very well, but it's damn cheap, so who cares?:laugh:

    Yea, I doubt I will go over stock on the ram, maybe 1866 or somthing if it will take it but more than likely just stock

    Way to cover your door intake fan. ;)

    Would be nice if the inside was white too.

    I personally think a white inside would be too much white. I like the added heatsink on the northbridge area. Now all you need is some more noctua stickers to put on all the fan hubs, and some 40mm noctuas for the northbridge heatsink and you're good to go!

    Basically, yep. Different fans though. They are damn loud at full speed, but it still does the job better than the H70 thanks to being ble to ramp up the fanspeed, while the H70 doesn't have PWM fans. The Antec 920 would probably perform just the same though.

    Oh I thought the temperature difference he has was from a tweaked design rather than better fans.

    :toast:

    Thanks though.

    Hey all... Got some new bits today, so I thought I would add pics here :)

    New stuff: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T, 8GB DDR3 1600 (Corsair Vengeance), and an MSI 990FXA-GD65 mobo :D Pretty stoked I ended up with the 1100T, since I ordered a 1090T... :D

    Please note I took the pics while I was still busy building... I will take some "final product" pics later :p

    Santa came early this year and dropped a new toy by my door, it's not supposed to come out until the 16th, but I won't tell Creative if you guys don't tell either ;)

    I like the PCIe version much better than the USB version, this one is fully surround as opposed to "virtual surround", and it takes full advantage of my speakers :rockout:

    I hope you guys like the new pics ;)

    No.

    We are not.

    Please keep posting. Someday, I'll be in the same room as my PC and I'll post some new pics. How's the sound card? I have had nothing but (driver) problems with my Sound Blaster cards, but that's probably changed in the last year or so.

    Thanks ;) I haven't had any problems with my sound card drivers in a while, not since I started using Win7, funny think is creative don't even update their drivers that often either... but to be honest with you, I think they are delivering a solid package at the moment, haven't had that much time to test this new card yet, but I'll let you know how it goes :toast:

    My problems started with my transition to Win7. I was so pumped when I installed my SB Titanium and started to play BFBC2.

    Then the squeals started, and wouldn't stop. So I pulled it and went back to on board. I should give it a shot again.

    Sorry to hear that :twitch: I had more problems with Vista, that's funny huh? :wtf:

    I just removed my X-Fi from this PC, and it didn't give any problems before, hope your experience is better this time :toast:

    Is the new Creative card decent? I read somewhere that they were just really basic sound cards with a fancy cover, marked up a lot.

    I'm in the market for a sound card, my onboard sound gets hammered in some games, and crashes my system.
