Maybe get a custom applique done. You could to some crazy cutting on the window and flame treat is to smooth the cuts.

no throttling lol, even under load (metro 2033) and the front fan being completly blocked off by several HDD's it remained 67 C*!
the cpu had itself clocked at 3.8 GhZ. (turboboost?)

Okay, I just got my fan that I will be putting in the 5.25'' bay, I've put some foam on the bottom of the front panel, need to find some case feets.

But the real reason I'm posting is to ask if someone can provide me a link (or explanation) of VRM on the motherboards. How do I know which phase mine has? (can't really find it in the specifications)
As I understand it is a limiting factor in overclocking, what do you think about my Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3?

Thanks in advance.

Quoted from HERE (the article is about the GA-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD, which is the same as your board, just with the SSD interface added):

"That aside, the GA-Z68XP-UD3 is a fairly straightforward Z68 implementation, with 7-phase CPU VRM,"

He got an inoperable brain tumor or cancer. Can't blame him for jumping. It must have been so very hopeless for him.
