Hi OCN! About 4-5 months ago I started toying around with the idea of building my own computer and stumbled on this site. It has been 2 weeks since I finally pulled the trigger and built it and it went without a hitch thanks to OCN lurking! For a first build I went a bit overboard but it was worth it! Figured I might join the crazies that helped me create Bill.

Meet Bill the Computer(Anyone a fan of Bill the Cat from Bloomfield?)

Welcome. That's a pretty bad ass first build! Came out very clean, how's that NZXT Sentry 2 treating you? Both of the ones I tried made my LED fans flicker like crazy and made the RPM's go up and down randomly. Any problems with yours?

I don't have any LED fans so I can't really say, but when I plugged my Corsair SP120 high performance ones into it and turned the fan speed down they made this weird buzzing noise that really ticked me off. Those are now plugged into my motherboard and don't make the noise.

The 4 140mm case fans that came with it don't make the buzzing noise though so it works just fine with standard fans I guess.

I don't even have the thermal probes on anything.(too lazy and I can see all the temperatures in Windows.)
