As for the graphics card, that has been the stand in I have had for just under a year now :P Its a Nvidia geforce 210, and I shall be ordering my Gigabyte windforce 7950 this thursday.

Pretty nice and clean. Is that cooler in its final configuration? It is more effective to push air through the heat-sink rather than pull it. Or is your air flow left to right?

My original plan was to get a Corsair Hydro series cooler, this is a stand in for the crappy stock cooler. I know its very counter productive, but it pulls from left to right, although this fights the rear exhaust fan I have no option as it sticks out an extra 2mm or so over my ram, and doesnt fit. I do still plan on getting a H series cooler, but it will be a while off yet.

Well now I've done it. Since the case fans are quieter (installed the lowest speed adapters), I can hear the drone of the CPU cooler fan, and the irritating ticking of the GPU fan (sounds like a hard drive constantly working). Sooo... on order is a NF-P12 PWM fan for the CPU cooler, and this bad boy for the GPU, the Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 Plus Cooler. Should be more then adequate without any fans as I have great airflow in my case. Should be really quiet, and the GT 240 fans run at 100% all the time, and this one is getting noisier. Will post some pics when I get it installed. A Guy

Just for fun I put my old cases 140mm fan in on the bottom. This fulls all my cases cooling options, although not a permanent option :P. When I turn everything up its stupidly loud.

Haha, yeah, I made that mistake once too, Was thinking I could silence my rig with new super silent fans and controller...It was as you said more annoying afterwards... And I look forward on seeing those pics,remember "cable management" And that cooler is a beast!


Also for general info, My new chassis FINALLY arrived to day...but I am at work,so can't use it or even open the package till later today

Here are a few quick shots of the chassis, and some components, When I get my Watercooling stuf I will upload some decent shots, My old chassis I think won with looks,but this one wins hands down with features and quility imho. I added a pic where you guys will see how big this chassis is, I placed it next to a South African Amaroela tree! Anyway,the cable management is not what I wan't t to be,but asoon as I have everything installed and running, I will do them accordingly. Comments and critisism alike is allways welcome.
