Nice. Where do work? What do you do? We have the same phones and similar cubicles. However I only get to use a ThinkPad T410.

For me, it came down to cost. I was able to find an open box TX3 at my local Fry's for $10, so I went that way. If I was going to OC a bit more, I would def. go with the H60, or even better, the H75.

As far as the optical drive, I am not sure. I don't even have one to test fit. I will take some measurements when I get home.
It's so little!

Mechanical process engineer for a company that designs water and wastewater treatment plants. If anyone is hiring a mid 30's white male with 10+ years of mechanical, instrumentation, and computer skills, send me a PM. Interested in Boston, New Hampsire, Illinois, or Colorado. The cube furniture is from steelcase. Not too bad, after pulling out all the fluorescent bulbs above me. The company's idea of a beefy CAD station was a T6500 dell with a Quadro 580. Couldn't take it anymore so with admin rights I cloned the raid mirror onto a single spinner then cloned that to an SSD, checked alignment. Works well. IT's scripts and remote app are still intact but their BDE partition had to go. I can boot to unmolested operating systems on another SSD. To minimize downtime, I set Macrium Reflect to create weekly images of each SSD to external dock and spinners.

here is a link to photos for a few other puters I built. I appended my original post with a parts list and performance information.

Thank you I appreciate that. I currently have a H80i which I sent back for RMA as the pipes started to crack on the pump and the radiator. Now I have the option of going air or getting a H60 or H100i... But I won't be overclocking my CPU so I think it will be overkill to go for such a big cooler as the H100i. Could you all please help me out with your suggestions?

If you are not going to overclock, then pretty much whatever you like the best. You could even go back to the stocker if you wanted to save the $$ for elsewhere. I may be moving to an H60 or H75 for mine as I want to do a more agressive OC, and my little cooler will get quite loud if I go any further than I am at now.

Yeah, I used to have one. I bought it at $89, it was the 650W and it was very quiet. Depending on how much wattage your looking for and you can find the RM at a good price I'd buy it. My only knock with the RM series and this case is that the cables are the worst.
