It's alive!!! I finished (got running.... it'll never been finished biggrin.gif ) the build yesterday. Freaked out a little bit when it was up and running and then died. Turned out I tripped my breaker for that outlet.

I ended up using enermax t.b silent fans. Microcenter had them in stock so I gave them a try.... well they were in stock until I took them all. I got to say I am VERY impressed how quiet they were. Almost inaudible.

I'll post some pics this afternoon of my new build.

Thanks avaya. I found your post several days ago. In fact, I'm the last person that posted in the topic wink.gif

+1 for sure.

Here are two pictures. Not much to look at. As you can see I still need a video card.

when it comes to silent performance, ziptie gpu cooling simply can't be beat. I swear by it.
