Thanks guys, I will make the change today and see if it helps. I'm loving this case so far and really like how versatile that it is.
Are you hearing the sickleflows or the GPU fans? I have R4s in my other computer and they are very quiet. Moving them to the inside of the case will def quiet them down.
This case is awesome for sure!

I've been able to drop the voltage quite low on my R4s. I have them currently at 5v and ddc is the loudest thing.

I hear them even when the GPU is idle. As a test I can unplug the GPU and use the onboard graphics to see if the noise is coming from the GPU. I almost feel like it is those front fans though. I will move them to inside the case and see if that improves anything. I will also look at lower the fan speed a little which could help. The fan to the left side is also running off of a Molex cable because it can't reach any other fan connection on my mobo since this is a micro ATX. Do they sell extensions for the fans cables so I can plug to the mobo?

My next build I will go with a full ATX just to have more room and options.

You can edit the molex, swits to 5v.

Use one of these: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=32845
or you can use one of these: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_289&products_id=26879
Either will work well. I had to use the distribution block to connect as many fans as I needed.

Budget? What type of keys? Ten keyless? There's a million and one good boards out there. I love my board, but it's not for everyone, AND it's been discontinued. It can still be found on flea bay for $65 though. (it's Steelseries now though. They bought Ideazon).

I have a Microsoft Sidewinder X6 which allows the NUmpad to switch from side to side. Its a decent Keyboard and is sufficient for what I need but I also have a Razer Nostromo for FPS. Only thing I have to complain about is that the F keys and the esc key are close together.

I would suggest a keyboard with a Macro function for MMO games. Other than that its a crap shoot and you should just read reviews on Newegg or reviews through OCN. A lot of people are biased with what they own but you should get an idea what you are looking for.
Heres some reviews:

I have a corded Wave. Not the best but it does the job well and the ergo is pretty decent. I do have the dreaded repeated "R" key, so I have to slow down the rate.




Was looking over the manual and noticed some of the illustrations. One in particular, the case is on its side and looks damn good as a traditional tower thinking.gif.

That is cool, I didn't know about getting one of these and that should work well.

I'll go into the bios and adjust the power on the Molex.
