Re routed some cables. The 8pin will not fit behind the motherboard on my PSU. Need about 1 1/2 inches to make it work. Oh well.

Either way that look's like a heck of a mATX rig

I'm referring to my temps at 3.6. When folding, they go to high 60's or low 70's depending on how warm it is. Relatively cool here tonight.

Maybe you do have an issue if you're at 2.67. I also replaced the pre-spread thermal compound that was on the heatsink with arctic silver.

And I was able to get my 8-pin cable to come up in the corner from behind the motherboard. Had to have it laying there when I put in the mobo, and have thin Corsair cables helps.

@TARRCO CONGRATS ON BEING OFFICIAL! Hey sorry I'm late .

@Domerocket Awesome SLI cards Domerocket. Looks really cool. Hey, your problem with cooling could be because of your wiring. Any wiring in the way restricts airflow and might be causing the high temps. This is why I think you shouldn't get an air cooler and should just stick with your H50 because the wiring would make the air cooling worse than your H50 is now. As well, Air Cooling: BIG NO NO. I saw in reviews the Vulcan has trouble fitting them. See here:

. Small coolers like the H50 or H70 fit the case best.

Also, the SLI cards might be producing too much heat that can't escape the tiny case. I guess SLI-ing might not be the best bet for this case because it traps the heat in and heats up your other components. Although I hate to say it, maybe an Antec or Silverstone (specifically an FT02 or RV02) might be better for SLI-ing cards because of the way they get rid of heat better and the room in them for hiding cables.

Oh yeah. I just came back from my holiday today. I got my Vulcan there cheap. Planning on building it ASAP but got school work so it might have to wait a bit.

Vulcan builders, what do you think of the case? Is it easy to build in? How do you think I should set up my fans (I also have the 20cm NZXT fan for the side slot)

My plan for the fan set up is having my 20cm fan do intake to cool my graphics (I'll have to make my own custom dust filter though. The metal mesh pattern DOES NOT keep dust out). Then, I'll move my intake fan (the one in the front) and flip it to exhaust to put on top of the case next to the other exhaust fan. I'll use my H50's fan as intake in the front. Does it sound a bit weird to you? Any better ideas? Help would be awesome. Thanks

I just made my first computer build and learned a lot from it, i'll post pics later on. i'm using an AMD phenom 2 x6 processor, and every temp monitor i try is showing it at 18-20c. any idea why the temp would be reading that low?
