temps:
GPU 1 idle:42C
GPU 2 idle: 36C
CPU idle: 20C
ambient: 24C

Barley any audible fan noise either, although when doing hard 3d graphics you can hear the 4870x2 throttle up!

Gentlemen, welcome to flavor country.

hell yes... i love those fans, but i might take to 230mm of the door and put four high flow 120mm's

i hate the IDE on the sound card though... stupid cable blocks airflow unless you scrunch it up...

When you go modular you never look back.

Nice to see it all done up, still got a few weeks until mine is 100% complete...

Why do your cases always have the fan for the CPU heatsink at the rear of the case? Is it sucking from the front facing side through to the back or pushing from the back to the front?
