Yea theres no way im spending 1000 on a cpu im gonna keep this cpu for a year and half and wait till prices come really down. Besides i just bought the Xeon E3110 aka E8400 untill i get bored/find it slow then ill upgrade and im sure by the end of next year prices will come down for boards as well as DDR3 kits.

Is that the normal position of the TT fan? If so, do you find it makes a big difference in temps? (I'm assuming it's directed at the vid card......).

Big changes for my Cosmos S coming down the line... I've owned it long enough now that I'm gonna start drilling some holes in `er to mount the pump & res. Figure the pump should fit will on the back wall at the rear of the motherboard. Not sure on the res yet.

theres 3 exhaust fans on top of the rad so i dont see the point of putting one buut that worked well on my last setup but since this setup has heatpipes for now the small little fan on the left will surfice but ill probably add another Noctua Nf-p12 to the back .

And SSWilson yes the thermaltake fan in the bottom next to my Antec Spot cool is to keep my card cool i just been folding a lot recently and thought ill just keep my video card memory cool im not using Swiftech Copper heatsinks but Zalman ones and their smaller the aluminium material ones im sure yu seen them. Anyways im gonna buy another antec spot cool and replace that with it but for now its doing a pretty good job and the whole computer is pretty dam silent so love it.

Heh... I've got my new GTZ in hand and I'm waiting for the rest of my new fans to arrive, hence the upcoming revamp of my loop.... :)
