    I would start asking him question like if it was overclocked and how long it has been used. It would be a great mobo if you could get it for that cheap.

    remember not being DOA means it'll run but that doesn't mean that everything works on it, so be sure to ask the hell outta him about everything just to be sure. and for that price i would be a little suspicious, since he didn't describe a lot about it. But if everything is great than i will hate you for getting it cause i would like to have it. hehe. and goodluck

    I use the Gemin II and it is sweet. For fans i use 2 Rosewill 120mm
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200021

    The controllers are pretty cheap but the fans are good so are the fan grills. This time of year i don't use the fan and it stays under 35c in summer though with those fans in a room of 96f i hit 47c.

    Idle temps did not go down much like 1-2c but under load it kicks in big time and it's like it will not allow it to get to hot.

    Shame you did not get the cooler earlier as it was free after rebate lol.
