Sorted chap! It must be doing a good job then aye
Again good job with the build mate, that shield on the mobo should make cleaning it a whole lot easier too.

Thanks mate, yeah easiest motherboard to clean in the world!

It came with 2 very small fans, 1 to circulate air under the cover and another that you can point at the vrms, the latter is a total gimmick, the former might be worthwhile so I will fit it later tonight.

Edit: Installed the mini fan. Not sure how accurate this thermal radar thing is, but going by that temps look pretty good all round.

I've just bought one of those Antec spot fans just t get a bit more air around the cpu socket and Northbridge heatsink. They don't get really hot but the cooler the better enit
I have used and still have one of those and their great, only issue is the neck of the fan won't hold it in place. Try this: take a cut down wire coat hanger and black zip tie it to the neck pre-bent where you want the fan to stay and that should help. I had mine zip-tied to the HDD cage to keep it in place.

yeah i did wonder how well it would support it as the mount does'nt look too good. I bought the slightly bigger 100mm one too.
Thanks for the suggestion i shall deffinately keep it in mind. Infact i have a Scythe "NINJA WIRE" that i used to use with my 6950 that may come in usefull for it.
Cheers chap

Paul, I don't know whether the 35mm fans do anything or not, but I installed them and they run about 3700 rpm constantly. Motherboard temps are always really good, and I can't hear them at all. Also, good thinking on the Rad relocation......you have the optimal setup now. Drawing cold outside air in across the fins will give you the most efficient cooling. I don't know if your temps will lower any, but I know after the rad absorbs the shock of higher temps, it will cool it down faster. That is how I have mine set up.....it draws air from outside and forces it across the fins and exhausts out the top....good stuff! Board looks amazing as well.

Thanks Kelly, It's definitely running cooler with the rad in the new position. I re-ran IBT under the same ambient temperature (if not slightly warmer)that I did a while back and it is running 7C cooler.

Excellent results then Paul. 7c is a decent drop just for relocating the rad enit. Nice1
