Hmm, get a piece of black tape and cover the light or a new wife.

People walking, chairs moving, vacuuming, all create a lot more dust at lower levels where your fans are.

Yeah, I have already found that out. I can definitely tell the CPU is hindered by the small fan. I plan to buy one for Christmas hopefully.

If you plan to overclock that beast, save your money and get a good one.

Might I suggest a sealed water system, so many good ones out it really all depends on the case and available mounts which you have a great 240mm option in the top and of course the 120mm out the rear of the case. Check out my systems

Great 'puter Alan. I was really surprised at the difference the Seasonic made over my old Antec (the Antec was after all a Seasonic under the covers). No more whine and quiet as can be.

Speaking of Antec and quiet, I added an Antec TrueQuiet Pro 120mm fan to the front of the case. It is pretty quiet at 600 rpm but at 1200 it has a definite audible tone. For the advertising claims and the price, all I should hear at 1200 rpm is the air
Gene, they want to know where you got the PCIe covers

I am out of town on business, so I can't dig it up. I believe they are available on many PC customization sites. I was purchasing something else and saw them and said why not? I can dig it up when I get back the end of this week.

Cheers

Specs:
CPU: i7 3770k
GPU: EVGA Geforce SuperClocked+ 660ti 3GB DDR5
PSU: Corsair HX750 750w
Case: Corsair Obsidian 650D
SSD: Sandisk Extreme 256GB 6.0GB/s
MOBO: Asus Sabertooth Z77
RAM: Patriot 4x4GB 1600mhz DDR3
Optical Drive: ASUS 24X DVD Burner


PS. Yes, I cleaned up that wiring :3
Great rig you have built up there

I wonder why you are not getting a 7.9 graphics in WEI. That card should do this easily. Anyhow something you might want to investigate.
