Do you have a Best Buy near you? They're blowing out the Corsair H50 for $39.99, but they're selling out fast. I have both coolers and can tell you that the H50 is better.

Loading up Win 7. This took longer than expected. Along with all of the hardware driver downloads I added and the numerous reboots . . .

sccr64472, Thanks for the heads up on that. I will see what payday looks like and maybe pull the trigger. Repped !!

+1 for the H50, even though I'm a bit biased

I recommend putting the rad in the bottom 3 5.25" slots (like I did) if you're not using them. It fits perfectly and doesn't mess with your airflow!

Finished with phase one. Let Monolith run a little for some heat to build, started Win Easy Share over on the old rig, started to make a punch list for "To Do" items, and this being my first Win 7 PC, time to get familiar with the new OS. Please add any thoughts/critiques/suggestions here as I will keep an eye on the thread going forward. So far I am liking the vibe here on OCN, I lurked for a long time just walking through the " Official Computer Room Pics" thread, 1600 some posts no less. I have some serious desk envy now !!

Once all my stuff is rearranged, I will throw in some new pics. Thanks again for peeking in. See you on the Battlefield (3) in October

Nice buildlog.

About that mess with the mobo screws... At least you didnt try to screw the mobo stand-offs with needlenose priers, like i did.

Looking great! Excellent job, speedy build! Not sure if it fits but I'd swing for a Megahalems before the H50. 2500K is a great OCer, go for the best!

Screwed one standoff in the mobo plate before finally realizing it couldn't be the only way to screw them in and finding the screwing bit in the bag that came with my case... So embarrassing...
