It isn't that difficult to replace them with whatever color LEDs you prefer.

What is the paper that says:

"Treated with volatile corrosion inhibitors Face Opposite side to metal Do not unwrap until ready to use"

What is the VCI paper used for that comes with the case? Is it for the underside of the motherboard? How do I use it?

the paper is just rolled up around the VGA card bracket (supports triple GPU card)....... the paper is just so the metal doesn't rust or get pit's in it during shipping or while sitting in the box.

+1 Thanks Xtreme

Also.. I have a PCI card for wireless N. Currently starting from bottom to top is as follows:

Power Supply
PCI Wireless Card on top of that (the PSU)
5870 GPU above that (the wireless card)

Should I switch the GPU with the PCI wireless card or leave it as it is now?

My concern is that the GFX card is essentially blowing right at all the components below it. Would it be safer for the GFX card to occupy the slot right above the power supply, or is it better for the GFX card to be at the topmost slot with the wireless PCI card sandwitched in between? Im not sure as I assume if the GFX is too close to PSU, maybe it may generate more heat, but if GFX is above a wireless card, im afraid the hot air may damage it. Or I may just be paranoid.

well you should go to the USER CP at the top and then go to add system on the left so we all know what you have and what your using. the gpu on top should be fine. i wouldn't be too overly concerned with the gpu blowing hot air onto the wireless card.

you could put it in either of the two top fan places but the rear is generally the most favoured. If you have two identical, good performance fans i'd use them in push/pull instead of the stock fan.

Gday Guys

AN update. Xfire is up and running. pics below

I changed the rad fans to 12v rather than the 5v they were on. Massive difference.

cpu 4ghz OC / 5v fans = 44deg Idle / 89deg on burn test

cpu 4ghz OC / 12v fans = 32deg Idle / 62deg on burn test

BFBC2 session now at 42deg as aposed to mid 50's

So cpu heat issues seem rectified.

I also put in some mesh pci rear brackets.
