Holy shiznitz. That's quite the build! What do you do for a living?

What monitor/TV are you powering for your two GTX295s?

Also careful when OCing with that HSF. Stock temps are already at 50C load (possibly more) from what I've seen.

Yes I would suggest overall the Noctua SE HSF over all others. Better value and quality.

im using a dell ultrasharp 2408 wfp monitor.

I checked out that noctua heatsink and erm I dunno but those fans look like diareah?!?!?! I watched this vid and @ 4 gigs an 920 was only at 76 load on the lowest fan speed. seems very good to me..69 on on full speed. although he was only suing 1.3v he got a good chip so it might be a bit higher.YouTube - #1047 - Zalman CNPS9900 LED CPU Cooler Video Review

yeah, noctua fans look like poo, but they are awsome.
Thats a nice looking build you're going to have yourself there. The TJ-07 is a very nice case!

Ok boys and germs i got some back news :C

ok heres the story: After installing psu drives and dvd drive i called it a day and went to put the side panel back on. heres when the fun starts.... I cant get the side with the window on the case to any point where they will line up with th screws... yay... so I call up the store i bought er from and tell them i cant get it on and asked to bring it in to see if he could help me/show how to get it on. so i bring this mamoth into the store and we struggle with it for about half an hour and no luck he deems it defectivew and offers me a new case.. ok ... he comes back and tells me he has not more tj07 except silver with no window ew... so he says i can pcik another case.. and my chases were haf (no) tj09 w/ no window, antec twelve hundred, cosmos s, and raven were the good cases for gaming. I decided to pick up the 1200 i have yet to open it but it only cost me 180 compared to 400... so yah... anyone got opinions on this 1200? I got it because of all the fans and the window on the side aswell as the inside being black... so yah unfortunatley i dont have that beauty anymore but... i did say quite abit of money.. on the bright side the tj07 is VERY Loud.. if you want quiet you need a fan controller which would have cost me another 50+ bucks... so all in all its good since the 1200 has the fan controller...

That sucks I picked up a TJ09 from lemonlime for my next project, and i must say.. silverstone makes some good looking cases.

How are you dealing with the noise those 2 gtx 295's put out? I had that setup for about a week... man do they squeal during high framerates!
