Yeah...I had no idea how big it was when I ordered mine. My room-mates were pissed when they brought it in off the porch.

got it! got it yester night, didnt have time to put it together, had to work today, so around 4:00 I got to it. Just finished it now.

It didn't come with a crossflow fan, but i can easily get it for 30, no big deal.

It's quieter than my last setup with 3x32mm fans. Now I have 2x120mm and 1x32mm fans that came with it. one 120 is on the back (exhaust), one 120 is on the hard drive case (intake), and one 32 is on the top (intake).

I love the dust filters on it, nice...

I'll do a temps check after i have it on for awhile. who knows? I may not need a WC system after all

Thats a heck of a nice temp drop...Goes to show how much good ventilation has to do with temp's..Well if you do decide to go ahead and WC you got a nice big case for it...Stick a cross flow fan in there and it probably drop some more...I thought it was supposed to have one with it? Could of sworn the page you linked us to said that it did...Oh Well like you said you can all ways pick up one later....

Good to hear you like it. The cross flow fan is loud, but it will cool everything on your MB off. It does have three different speed settings so that is a plus. Well worth the money if you ask me.

Some of the stackers have the CF fan with it and others don't. (price diff)

You looking at around $245 shipped or so. Then you go to the hardware store. You'll need a 1/2"ID T fitting, a $6 1" holesaw (you have a drill right?) for the fillport, & worm drive clamps that will work on 5/8"OD tubing.
ok, back on water cooling topic...

I will probably buy this after christmas, but from the time this was posted, is there any other deals that are cheaper/better?
