How did you do those graphics on the side?

And yeah if I were you I'd go with the 212, and get the new Swiftech closed loop in the future.

I don't have much of an opinion on the rest of the stuff. For RAM I just go with anything with 5 stars on Newegg that fits my needs..and I'm a bit of an Intel fanboy..

Hmm okay. I am going to keep doing research, based on my budget, needs, reviews, and what I've seen and researched, my build is changing, again. lol. I'm probably going to go with a trinity/apu build, MAINLY because, ONE it will save me a good chunk of money, two, I already use a 5450 and I'm used to it. I can play my games I play now, and I'm used to it, I'm not spoiled in 1080p. So I'm figuring the APU trinity AMD CPU, will be an upgrade in cpu and graphics, along with faster RAM, better cooling, etc. I will be pleased.

Or does that idea sound like complete idiocracy?

They are decals included with Asus ROG motherboards

Good idea! Personally I'd settle for the APU + A 6670 in Hybrid Crossfire! thumb.gif Make sure you get an A8 or an A10 though! smile.gif

Yeah I posted a fully detailed bit in the forums for AMD, I'm getting an A10, but just wanting to get an opinion from more people. I will get a 6670 later on, but for now, that will more than please me. I will be getting an upgrade in CPU speed, processing power, graphics, RAM, and HDD speed with this build I have in mind.

And to the other post, any idea on how to paint a case or do decals like that on your own?

That's a damn impressive build, Binary. I was wondering why you switched the HDD activity LED from red to white but it makes sense now and looks good.

Hello guys! I've been monitoring this thread for some time now and I've seen some really impressive builds!
Can anyone please tell me if they have successfully mounted a 200mm fan on the top? I got myself a 200mm fan from Thermaltake and it doesn't seem to fit.. at all.

If you could look at this picture: http://puu.sh/1RWPg.jpg and tell me what's wrong, I will be very happy!
I tried to center it as much as possible smile.gif

I didn't get any kind of tool or anything to mount this properly. Only screws and "make harddrive fit-kinda-things"..
Thanks in advance!

I don't think that fan will work the mounting holes are way off. The only 200mm I have used is the cooler master and it lines up just fine.

Ah so only a Cooler Master fan would fit?
