A very close result... Both coolers look decent though, even if the Silver Arrow did win.

Ok... should i dare? :P Yes i should. Not the prettiest thing but kicks ass in Skyrim so that's enough for me And i mean without OC, i don't need to yet.
And yes it looks better in reality, i took the photos in quite a rush.
The CPU cooler is just called CPU cooler and is of unknown origin, probably China, got it for $5. It had a small diformity on the part that lands on the CPU, but fixed with fine sandpaper.
Same goes for everything except the case itself, motherboard and a HDD. The rest is all repaired/refurbished by me.
The maximum absolute CPU temp is 45 while with the stock Intel cooler it was 55 idle. Also i've placed 2 coolers on the NB of the mobo, only one visible in the photos, so with OC it never passed 40 celsius, and that's very low for Nvidia chipset. Also placed heatsink from older Asus board on the SB, since it came without one and heated badly. That's pretty much it... the case fans do the rest.

R4dul- Now this is what I like to see, making something awesome out of something simple, I like that you spent time in repairing and upgrading products you got, it shows the hard work and makes the end product way more personal and special, WELL done!!

If I may add my 2cents, I would just say that you need to take some time and do cablemanegment, it all goes to waist if you have a nice rig and your proud of the components,but they then get spoiled and hidden by masses of wires. Other than that, it looks very cool!

Andreas- N+I+C+E job on that cable management, and I never thought anyone would use the brownish fans, so they are a first I see in a chassis, all in all very nice and clean look

Very good. What's that cooler on the cpu ? That heat sink looks nice.

Thanks! Yes i do take pride in this rig, but as far as cable management goes, i'd love to see something done but recently i've been in a world of pain with the DVD-RW, changed 2 of them under warranty until i finally got a working one... different interfaces too, one was IDE, so i had to mess all the cables up and now i ran out of cable ties :P I'd also love to pass the power cables behind the motherboard support plate but they're not long enough in the FSP power supply.
by the way, great computer you got there... keywords: tidy and stylish.

As i said, it's just named CPU Cooler, i don't even know where it's made, but it has 4 heat pipes and does a fantastic job. I plan on replacing the cheap sleeve bearing fan with a better, PWM controllable fan (4 wired) so the PC will be more silent.

Thanx,and Aah,yeah,I had the same problem,the onlyway I could fix mine in the end was buying a modular powersupply....but that was a last resort, but your chassis has some nice potential for hiding cables, I think if you take some time you can do very well cable hiding in there.
