Hey guys, I've been doing some upgrading to my rig over the past few days and months, I've added a CM Storm Sentinel Mouse, a Razer Lycosa Mirror keyboard and a Carcharias Headset, some extra case fans (replaced a 120 and added a 140), and finally, replaced the stock Intel HSF with a shiny new Coolermaster V8 :P some pics, for viewing pleasure: A size comparison between the CoolerMaster V8 and the standard Intel CPU cooler. the layer of thermal paste left on the CPU after removing the intel cooler. used some Isopropyl Alcohol to get it off... the V8 installed, and running beautifully :P complete setup, complete with cheap and nasty desk and vast quantities on mess. link to original rig and spec list.

That v-8 dwarfs the stock cooler, bet you noticed a temp drop.

Congrats, looks great.

HillbillyPD,
Hope you held up well in the recent rains? The system upgrade looks great, there's nothing like running your system cool and quiet.
