well its butted up against the wall and i just have bumpers against the wall.. been thinking about moving the o-rings out 10 inches or so but i'm not sure if my dad is ok with me making two more holes in the ceiling... originally i wanted it against the edge to save headspace (i'm 6'3" and the bed is about 5'8" off the ground) but the extra 10 inches would allow for free swing motion

the documentation is a bit confusing, it has slots a1,b1,a2,b2. (in order left-right) dual channel status is pictured like this in the manual:

dual channel status a1 b1 a2 b2
enabled o o x x
enabled x x o o
enabled o o o o
(where o means memory installed, x means memory not installed)

i think i did it right?

You got it right. I had to look at the manual too, because that is definitely unusual. Most boards alternate the pairs, but not on this one.

I know why Dunkler asked, because it did look odd to me too.

Ran a 3dMark Vantage at stock clocks just out of curiosity...

22,323 3DMarks

Not too shabby for all stock clocks. I need to reinstall windows though I believe. My SSD is running under IDE controller and not giving me full speed. Anybody here know If I install windows again under AHCI controller, then can I go back and build the RAID 0 for my 3 WD HDD's? I am at a loss here..

Don't quote me on this but I'm PRETTY sure that it's a setting in the bios, but you HAVE to reinstall windows, apparently if you change from ide to achi it will mess up your current windows.

Yeah I tried switching it to AHCI and it glitched but didnt hurt anything. Its weird in the bios. The setting says: IDE, RAID, AHCI. So I wanted to raid my 3 HDDs so I chose that and setup my raid, but when I switched back to AHCI for my SSD it lost my RAID build...

I've made a few changes to mine...

- Added a load of Xilence Red LED fans (3x 120mm and 1x 80mm)
- Added a small 5 LED red light under the HD bay to light up the graphics card air intakes.
- Reversed the Hard Disk so the cables are at the front.

I had to grind about 2mm of plastic off the CPU heatsink fan casing as it stopped the top rear fan from spinning.

Very nice, and nice cable management
Did you see any temp drop's with the new fans? and small but effective mod on the cpu cooler

Also I like your photo's

The cpu is a bit cooler, so i've lowered the minimum cpu fan speed a bit as the top fan now helps out.

The draft from the front fan is lost by the time it gets to the graphics card, idle is the same as before, but I think the load temp is slightly lower and it cools quicker when I exit a game.

When i first put the top fan in it didn't rub on the cpu fan as the case was laying down on its side, but as soon as it was turned on the fan pulls itself downward and touched the frame.
