Hey, Like your build I'm installing 2 80 mm fans above the motherboard in the back tonight and will take pics of final product.. what temperatures are you getting?

At first I plugged the three fans straight into a molex and it was like a wind storm in there. Ran prime95 for hours and it never got over 52c. Put in a fan controller and turned the three fans down where i couldn't hear them. Im guessing about 600rpm and still 53c. So heat is not an issue

I also changed the skin in XBMC now so it looks totally diff and bought a new remote and wireless keyboard. I need to do a new video

Logitech Harmony 650 (915-000159) Universal Remote ----> turns everything to the right input to watch video or tv. Amazing

IOGEAR GKM571R Black USB RF Wireless Mini Keyboard...

good stuff!

just done a very similar build using that case and mobo, i used the pentium g6950 and managed a 4.2ghz from 2.8ghz oc (stable) but had to leave out the cd drive to fit the heat sink :( with an addition of a gtx560ti its a good lil gamer! like what you done sweet build!
