i like both the mobo and cpu. i had ordered the wrong cpu cooler but Noctua offers their mount kit for free so i was able to convert the noctua cooler to be compatable with the mobo. i havnt overclocked at all, just put the noctua on last night, got better temps with as5 than noctua's stuff. the mobo liiks good in person, i wasnt sure about the blue but turns out it matches the blue on the ram and power supply. i have my wei score posted over in the thread where you post things like that... heres the noctua, i hate the fan color!

I think that cup cooler if needed will be able to use 2 fans, push pull.
Looks very nice and neat the way computer should.

Layback I agree.

+1 On the second CPU cooler fan especially if you OC. A pushmepullyou.

Very neat and well done.

yes the model of cpu cooler i created by converting the mounting does come with 2 fans. im not currently OC;ing and feeling the heat pipes theres very little heat as it is. the heat engine is the vid card, im working on some shadetree cooling ideas now to bring cooler air into the video card to lower its static temp...

Nice system with outstanding cable management. The way it should be.

One thing, you might want to consider having your CPU cooler oriented so that the fan on the cooler is pushing air out the case - have it facing the same direction as the back case fan.

Having the fan oriented the way it is now seems to be pulling hot air from the video card.

Anyways really nice system.

yeah i was going to do just that. it lines up nicely to the rear fan but figured id fire it up. that vid card is super hot and have successfully lowered its temp just a tad orienting the cpu fan like this. once i place intake fans on my case i may rotate the cpu 90 degrees.... thanks to all the compliments!

Yeah, re-orienting the cooler will probably lower you CPU temps a little further.

I see you have a Antec P183, BTW I nearly bought the Antec P193 but decided to go for Cooler Master's HAF X instead. It replaced my Antec P182.

Here's my system - http://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...tml#post948529

My thought on the case - http://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...r-s-haf-x.html

This case keeps things nice and cool for me, and is roomy

looks friggin amazing. Great cable management, how did you stow all those wires away?

Also, is the MoBo LED a tiny power symbol?

Are you asking me or regnad?

For me... while my mobo has tiny LED's they are not power symbols.

As for cable management, I can answer that since I'm familiar with the Antec case, or my case.... the wire bundle(s) can be hidden behind the right side panel of either case. Both cases are designed that way; In fact quite a few are designed that way.
