    I plan on watercooling the mobo in the near future, then that won't be needed :D

    sure is. I might even add my GPU in the loop, but not sure on that.

    that block looks good. I was thinking that or bitspower. What do you think?

    that is the cooling that comes with the Sapphire version of the 4870

    My case is barely a month old.... Getting a new case means there will be an angry mom charging at me. :respect:

    This is the problem for living in the most cramped city on the planet...

    i would get the heatkiller 3.0 in copper, its not clear, but i like its untypical looks. as you know i have the LT acetal version, but both (except the LC, which has lower fin density, and therefore lower cooling power,and no core quad nozzle delivered) perform nearly the same, and had MUCH better Flow in every review i read about it... its cooling capabilities exceeded the EK by 2 degrees celsius... the EK is already high end, but the heatkiller should top it

    look at this!!^^

    I went from mATX Core2Duo to ATX i7, and now I'm going back to the AMD days with a Phenom II.

    thanks.I know i need to get new batts. for my cam so i can get better pics. I spent 2 days on the WM this time. I even removed pins from the USB,Audio,pwr,res,hdd led,pwr led and some fans to get the wires in some holes that are too small for the connectors on the end. (yes everything still works :laugh:) its going to be a bitch to replace the fans if i have to. :banghead:

    You should paint that battle axe cooler black to match your xiggy cpu cooler but pain the bottom metal cover red to match the them of the case.
