Thanks for the good comments guys. I really appreciate it
I'm glad my first WC project turned out a success... eventually.

in the final pics i see OCZ ram not the kingston ram with TR heatsinks.
i know you noted it at the end, but what happened?
Well the 790i only supports DDR3. And I'm stuck with SLI and don't want to get 780i again so had to buy new RAM too. The kingston's and the 780i are going to be sold soon.

Ambient is high here. Temps I'm getting right now are like this:
CPU: 45-60C idle-load (stock) / 45-65C (3.6GHz)
NB/SB: 40-45C (FSB 1066 or 1600, doesn't change)
GPUs: 40-50C (stock)
CPU idle is a bit high (I guess because of the chipset block keeping it warm) but doesn't go above 60C at full load with prime running small FFT's. And I also think this loop is still bleeding so will see if it gets better over time.
I will try to make a shroud and will try them in pull config sometime tho. Thanks for the hints

Actually the board goes straight to FF, no video no nothing, not test codes. Something went really wrong with it and I believe a certain power regulator got fried somehow because it was getting hot when the PSU was connected and powered on.
