Hopefully that 212+ does a descent job on cooling those hot i7 chips.. I'm fairly impressed with it cooling my e8400, clocked it to 4.3ghz temps at idle don't go above 43C, still to test load at that high, been using that clock for two days and its stable, and mine's only with the stock fan pushing air..

Good luck ocing, Lol at your sig..
I didn't take it as bad criticism at all, you are right, I could have done a bit better! What is worse is I know it, but I couldn't help myself

I really thought about sleeving the fans and case leads but I ran out of money, more or less, so it will have to do. The more important thing is that the cables are routed out of the way and the airflow in the case will be unimpeded for the most part.

Well, the wife is happy anyway! So far, so fun. I am going to post a question to the Mushkin folks about what CPUZ finds with my RAM, but the RAM seems to run fine around 1600 MHz so not worried about it.

When you upgrade I'll be there to give you a hand, or at least some helpful advice :)

Sure, now you start with the ideas! After the glow wears off I MAY open it back up and try some electrical tape...

Yeah, I'm really wishing I had of stepped up and bought the HX850 just for the modular. I mean, 750w is alot of juice, today, with the manufacturers looking at ways to cut back on wattage in all computer parts. But sometimes the cables of this 750w bug me.

oh well. Couldnt beat the price of 90 bucks no taxes no shipping. Thx Encorp!

Looking good, i really like the look of the 922 vs the 932. Very clean, good cable management!

Thanks for all the comments. It is pretty good cable management, but I know it could be just a little better.

ToXic, the HAF 922 seems large inside, I can't imagine now how big the 932 must be!

Sagath, sweet price on the TX750. I was going to buy the TX850 until I saw the price that DirectCanada had them on for, $178. I couldn't resist. The review on HWC also sealed the deal. I have a TX750 in my old rig, which will be passed on to a friend, and hiding the mass of cables is a chore, especially in an Antec 900! :help:

I am now testing 190 x 20, in fact Prime95 is running small ffts in behind this window! Temps are running mid 70s on 1+2, 72 on 3 and 70 on 4. 8 threads pounding away! Wow, it is amazing the power of this chip.
