Thanks, I thought it came out looking pretty clean, I think my next upgrade is either gonna be an SSD or a modular power supply..... lol lets just say there is a reason I didn't post a picture of it thumb.gif

Ya having a good SSD is a nice upgrade. Those 2-3 second boot times are great.

Yup, losing that hard drive mount is kinda the only way to go and even then it's a tight fit.

It's great that the fans will for under the grill in front, but sucks loosing the air filter.

Yeah I am kinda bummed about loosing it, what I am thinking about doing is buying the dust filter kit and getting the for the rear exhaust and top fans. I will make those both intakes and then the three front fans exhaust, hopefully that will cut down on the dust. Gonna need to save up some cash before I do all that though.

Hey andrix! I like the look of this build, but I'm wondering how your temps came out. I noticed that your rig is not set to an extreme overclock. Can you let me know how your temps are coming out? I'm looking to do my first WC build but I'm looking at a lofty OC. Thanks!

**Edit** Would it possible if you could post a few pics of the back of your build ? THanks
