I know they would have to be install vertically... the problem is the the Stacker 810 has two back exhaust fans and no top ones... I guess I could always MOD my brand-new case and put some of my spare 230mm CM fans up there... But then again... which towers could i use that have the heatpipes on the same sides as the am2/3.5-1207 mounting holes? Only ones i know of would be the standard arctic cooling ones, or a ultima-90 with the s-clip for rotation... assuming the clip can attach to the socket F bracket.

LOL!!!! I have no idea what you're talking about Chilly... Are you implying that one of the many reasons to build this system is to point out the obvious ridiculousness of a certain companies overpriced system that will, in actuality, perform worse than mine? Say it aint so!

lol...

Default Parts!




Just Arrived (Top left to Bottom right):
- 2x Bitspower X-station (Blue) - For keep fans speeds down without the use of a fan controller
- 8x 1Gb Kingston DDR2-800 Ecc Registered Ram - So I'll at least have dual-channel per quad core... for starters.
- 2x Thermalright HR-05/SLI (IFX version) - To replace the stock cooling on the Northbridge + IO chipsets, will curl out of the way of the graphics card (I hope)
- Asus Xonar DX PCIe - The fancy motherboard doesn't have audio.... lol.

It's starting to come together ladies and gents!!!
