I wrote a review on this case and I see you have exactly the same issue as I have....that stupid CPU Power cord is too short! So no other options left than running it across the board!

Yes, its too short, and thats considering the OCZ cables are pretty long, well it doesnt look too bad, but it would look way cleaner.So yeah. and omgwtf, the motherboard isnt small, the case is just hugeeeeee .lol

well I just went to replace my pioneer dvd burner at microbytes and got a new one, works now. Only thing left is my HD3870....

Running dual channel on on an Intel rig really isn't as big as a deal when compared to AMD based rigs since Intel chips don't use an onboard memory controller like AMD CPUs do.

you're right its running in single channel, but i thought because the colors were the same it would run in dual channel.... I havent seen any mention of it in the bios either, so do i have to put it in the first slots to make it work?

Usually you have to install memory sticks into slot 1 & 3 to enable dual channel.

Not all board makers have their DIMM slots colour coded for dual channel and who know why.
