    tgreen001,
    Killer AMD rig. Those FX chips run like scalded apes. I can't help but notice the real tight wiring job, excellent work as it looks well thought out. ! 120-128 on the SSD is a smart move as I believe it's the new sweet spot in SSD's and the prices are falling every week. Plus 1 on the sealed water coolers the H80 works great and upgrading the fans will quiet them at full pace.

    Thanks Linne!

    This thing runs great but anything past stock 4.0Ghz without water cooling when running stress tests crashes due to high temps (65c) within 1 minute LOL. I'll think I'll do water cooling first, then the SSD.

    Thanks! Your specs look great as well! I can' wait to see what this can really do, I think 4.6-4.8ghz could be stable with water cooling, what do you think? I see you have O.C. your 8120 :)

    I think you could do 4.5K super stable and a lot more. Look for threads and posts by Solarstarshines on OC'ing the 8350 chips. He's been quite successful and has helped me a lot with my 8120.

    I'm in the process of moving to new mobo (990fx too), 8350 plus liquid cooling myself. I caught the bug bad! Will post some pics when done.

    @Linnemeyer, I'm reviewing the whole custom water cooling thing as the H100i just became available down here and at very good prices (the same as in the US).
    Could you recommend some good fans for it, besides Nocs which are not available here? Available brands: NZXT, Scythe, Enermax, Nexus, Phobya, Koolance, XSPC, Bitfenix, DeepCool, some Thermaltakes and Coolermasters, Nexus, Noiseblocker, Silverstone, Arctic Cooling, COOLINK, Nanoxia, Sharkoon, Be Quiet, Xilence and Alphacool. I think that's about it. Here's a link to the guys I buy fans from. I really need some advice on this one!

    Thanks Guys :) I appreciate the Kudos - I clearly need to do some lighting though, I've been looking at everyone's builds and they look so much better with case lighting!

    Bungee18,
    I've heard good things about the Scythe's also the Bitfenix. I'm not sure which is quieter but I understand from a static pressure stand point the Scythe's are strong performers. Even the new Corsairs are better but the static pressure model is still way louder than the Noc's. You may still need to speed control them with a resistor or fans controllers.

    Thanks for your answer Alan.
    I thought that the main difference between the H100 and the H100i is that the "i" includes the iLink feature and USB connection which allow you to control both the pump and the fans through software. Did I get it wrong?
    The Thermaltake 2.0 Extreme you are using kind of does the same, doesn't it?
    Thanks again,
