its 1.2 something not at my computer at the moment. I did the auto OC accidently on bios, computer restarted various time and finally set, checked on prime it ran 4.38Ghz. I guess I'll work from here to hit the 4.5Ghz this speed is plenty although 5GHz seems tempting

Argh I hate the waiting game, even more when I ordered the parts in 2 separate orders since I got some good early deals

Cooler install is pretty straight foward the only annoying part is when you mount the cooler to the actual bracket. Everything else is smooth sailing.

Under the mobo goes the bracket, its pretty easy. Just insert the proper mounts for the socket and is hold by double sided adhesive. The retention bracket goes on top, mounting the cooler to that is kinda of a PITA

Nah CPU, memory and video card are the easiest. Dont worry it was my first time building it, just follow neweggs video how to build. I did know before becuase I upgraded my old XPS 410, but they go into great detail.

ok yes the bracket for the cooling system are a big pain in my arse. i got through it with some help from my freezer to shrink the metals so the screws could thread properly. that was the hardest part. its up and running i still need to connect the USB connector so i can use the ChillControl.its a real mess in there (to tired to route cables to look nice) i also messed up and hooked up the reset button to the power on so the power button on the front is just for show lol.

Nothing is wrong with the Antec 1200.. I think too many people have the Antec 300 and 900's cable management in their head and assume the 1200 also has those issues. It doesn't.

I do like the sideways drive bays in the HAF and such though.
