What do you have on your NB for cooling? Is that part of your loop?

EDIT:Never mind I see that it's a fan now.

Your temps are kinda high, I don't even hit 85c in LinX with my Xiggy Dark Knight w/ stock fan. Ven-X is even better. Your H50 should be better than my Xiggy and a little better/worse than the Ven-X.
Good point andy

Yeah you guys like the fishing line supporting my GPU?

Agreed,
I thought the wall mount was interesting (I'm in Telco, we mount stuff on the wall all the time haha)
But I see air flow issues, or should I say lack there of issues haha..

Theres a 15 inch fan on the floor angled up and its always on and fans zip tied on

I will eventually mount everything on my wall the right way. I was kinda pushed into a corner on this one being i cycled through 3 mobos and landed on this one but it wouldn't fit in my small case with the H50

Yeah if i had your job i'd be bringing crap home all the time:

I was looking at cables and some guy was asking for help with motherboards. I overheard him say he just got a i7 980 and he was looking for a motherboard. The sales guy was confused and said "So you have how many cores, 4? You need a P55 board?" At that point, I just had to butt in because this guy was going to be SOL after leaving the store. I tried to get him to go Classified, but they didn't have that board there, so he ended up with a Gigabyte UD7. He wanted a CM V8 cooler, I steered him away and had him get a Megahalmes. He thought these heatsinks didn't need fans, so we went on a crash course on push/pull. I gave him 2 Scythe S-Flex 1200's for the heatsink. I helped him out with all this stuff and he was really grateful for it, but in the end the MicroCenter employee slaps their commission sticker on his stuff to get paid for not helping the guy/steering him in the wrong way.

I also may be building 2 more i7 rigs to replace my other computer at my desk and one of my coworkers. hahahah
Man that's sad isn't it? I've meet a couple of B&M store employees exactly like that. Generally they don't even ask you questions, just point you towards the most expensive gear.
I wonder what a guy that doesn't even know what Mobo to get is doing with a 980x though.
