Just for reference with the H70, I am getting 20C at idle (20C ambient), 42C under load. Mild overclock (4400 GHz) brings it up to 55C under load and high overclock (4900GHz)is pushing 68-70C. The H70 temps continue to increase at the higher settings. I picked up a Swiftech reservior to see if that will help get the air out of the lines and bring temps under control.

How do you like the V354? What color? I also plan to get this case.

The cooler will be an A70 (not H70), got it on sale.

Given my extra 6c ambiant id say my idle's looking pretty good then

The finish on the v354 is absolutly fantastic.
I got the red version just to be differnt and couldnt be happier.
Internaly its a bit tight especialy with the C14 in there (about 5mm clearance on the PSU) but once its all shoehorned in there its great.
I'll stick some pictures up once I get home for any intrested partys.

Sorry I meant it was $55 for each 8GB kit.

I also will be using this case but I am watercooling it. I will be mounting the radiator this weekend. I'll post some pics if you guys are interested.

Part of my decision to go with the Corsair Hydro H60 was driven by the weight of the better HSF solutions (heavy) and the issue of slim RAM clearance heights when using air-cooling. Since I ordered the H60 (found it at a good price with a rebate), I have continued my research/reading and I am now seriously considering adding another fan for a push/pull set-up. It will make it more similar to the H70 in terms of cooling (better) and noise (louder), I think.

Thanks, that was my thought - I hope it works out. I didn't want to go with all red and I almost went all black, but the red was on sale when I pulled the trigger on my order! I actually spent an extra $10 NOT to go all red.

I only wanna get 2x2GB
I can understand why somebody would choose not to buy 16GB (as it's clearly blatent excess), but why only get 4GB rather than 8GB?

Oooooo ok. I was hoping that's what you meant. That's a great price! I paid 60 for each kit, which I thought was pretty decent in its own right. Hard to beat ~$120 for 16GB of RAM. I still remember fondly when I was the first guy on the block who added that extra 16MB of RAM for a whopping total of 32MB.

my problem is that im trying to fit a good cooler in a silverstone gradia 05 b case. I dont care if i need to remove one fan of the noctua to fit in the case i just need to know if that setup (gradia 05 and noctua nhc 14) will work with some mild overklocking. i am getting a rip jaws x memory set but im unsure if the noctua will have the clearence (top fan removed) for those sticks. , any suggestions?

Bought one last night with a 2500k from the Newegg and my order is still processing? They usually process my orders instantly , I wonder if they are having stock issues.
