Very clean. Do you find that board's prone to VRM squeal? Just noticing the ramsinks you've got stuck on there.

Thank you.

No VRM squeal, and the sinks were added since I've added the block. It's very silent for 8 fans: 4 w/rad, 1 aft, 1 top, 1 fwd and a small 60mm up top, to cool the secondary drive which is located inside the top 5.25 drive bay, using the Zalman adaptor.

What did you finally end up using for fans, and are you running them stock?

Red YLs for the rad, and STD YLs everywhere else. The 60mm is a Delta from Sidewinder. The Scythe I had in push died - crappy bushings.

NCIX red YLs, or petras? (I picked up 10 of the NCIX ones when they had a sale on the 5 packs.... :) ).

I slapped a ton of them on my testbed, but I need to swap one out as it's got a bit of a wobble hum (is that a technical term??? :) ).

Same sale Steve. Bought 20 in 2 days... still have 4 left.

One did have the hum you're speaking of.

Hrmmmmm....... hang onto those if you don't have a specific use for them ATM. I'll throw a bunch of fans into my goodie bag when I drive up to see if I can convince you to trade..... :)

Do you need some? I was about to order more. I can piggy-back your order.

PP pricing is pretty good, but they're out of stock. Let me see what I can do.
