Thanks mate, you as well! thumb.gif PS was it easy to get your 955 to 4.2? Was it straight multi?

It was indeed just the multi for now, I'm yet to do any real tweaking. Seems I have a nice chip though, I'll squeeze more from it soon!

(the cable management guide was a huge help) I'm glad to see such an active community and I thank you for your (indirect) support!

As for its future, gotta up the ram from a 3x2GB to a 3x4GB kit. Might have to butcher the hard drive cage in the interest of a better/bigger graphics card. The 6870 is okay for now, but would love to get a 6990, 590, or next gen GPU (which is more likely at the rate I'm saving).

Has anyone tried shortening their hard drive cage? or know of a place one could by a smaller cage and mount that instead?

Welcome and Merry Christmas! First off thank you for coming out of the shadows, now I know way I felt like someone was watching me this last year rolleyes.gif Second you may want to hold off a on a GPU, the 7000's are coming out with in the month. Third yes there has been people that have shortened the HDD cage, I believe Kev-B did that at one point. Looking at your rig, it looks like you may have to cut in to the 5.25" bays too. The other route you could take in mounting the HDD's in the 5.25" bays and completely removing the the HDD cage. This may be a problem with your PSU not being modular as you won't havea place to tuck your cables.

I'm planning on going modular soon regardless. Built the girlfriend a new pc and the PSU that came with the case doesn't look like it will last long. So I'm planning to upgrade to a 750 or 850 modular and popping the 650 you see into her chassis.

At the rate i'll be able to afford a new card, it will likely be a 7000 series. Although I've been thinking of going nVidia for my next card. I'll do my homework when the time comes, but I really want to most powerful solo card I can find. Hence 590 and 6990. I don't really want to fit two graphics cards in my case, I don't know how I would pull off adequate airflow, especially considering the sabertooth doesn't allow for much space between cards. although i have entertained the idea of dual waterblocked gpus and getting into water cooling, but i'm just not made of money.

I've been thinking of turning the topside exhaust and using it as an intake to hopefully get some cooler air running through the h50. has anyone attempted this? did it work? does it make for more of a dust problem?

Actually i have done this with my H70 smile.gif the idea was to get cool air blowing into the fan pushing air into the H70 radiator, with the top fan in exhaust i would have been forcing the top fan and the radiator push fan to fight each other for air, i didn't think this was a good thing at all, temperatures have been great, and as for dust, it hasn't made my monthly system clean any harder, give it a try and see if it's any better for you thumb.gif

EDIT: i have my H70 in rear exhaust config with the fans you see in my specs in push pull smile.gif
