Seems like there's enough holes to have a clean look without any extra drilling.
The stock holes are nice, but I found I couldn't get it as clean as I like without drilling some more .

Very nice. I like that motherboard a lot.

Just to let everyone know, I did go ahead and order another 275. Gonna OC both to FTW speeds and then we'll see what happens from there.

Also, I got my Das Keyboard Professional from FedEx this morning and should be getting my Z-5500 speakers later from UPS. After that I just need to wait for my TRUE 120 heatsink and Scythe fans tomorrow so I can finally start building.

Is your i7 920 a D0 step? If not send it back before opening the box and try to certify a D0. From seeing the results most people are getting with them you will not be disappointed.

Yeah I wouldn't settle for a C0 at this point, D0's are amazing.

Nice build so far, I got my Classified coming tomorrow! Can't wait for it. I am debating on getting a 2nd GTX 275, but I heard SLI 275's suck for some reason. Otherwise, I may step up to the GTX 285, and get a 2nd when I can find a good deal on it.

Man, idk what you heard (you leik mudkipz?) but I wouldn't step up to a 285 from a 275, unless you got cash to burn. Just get a second IMO.

Does anyone else think getting new parts is like the best feeling ever...just holding the box in your arms is bliss.

Ahem anyway, back to a non-queer world.
