Thanks sorry for no pics for a week!
I had 3 BSOD so I didn't tie things up... I had to figure how to use the debugger for mini dumps.
Then I found the solution in these forums

Intel Gigabit Ethernet adapter was the cause

That's a Thermal Sensor I have stuck to the Rad on the H70 ( mobo has 3 that I put around the parts, 1 more in ram and the other verifying the NB temps)
I will be doing cable management later today!

is there no way for you to make you H-70 exit the case instead of blowing the heat into the case?

I was wondering that as well but Corsair recommends that the user blows inwards instead of the usual method as cold air from the outside can be used to cool the rad better. The flaw of this method by Corsair is that it will increase case temps and more exhaust fans would be necessary. OP should mount exhaust fans on the top of the casing if there is none.

Nice rig! The Haf-x is a great case for air cooling.

There is a big 200mm fan at the top by default, and if you are using the rear fan as an intake (the Corsair cooler), then you should ensure that the 200mm fan is an exhaust. I just read a review (Neoseeker) saying it was intake by default, so I would double check.
