I'm using a Zalman CNPSX10 Flex with 2 120mm fans, It's cooling a 4.1ghz 1100T @ 44c at MAX load, it's insane. It fits in this case just fine, looks neat.
I'd recommend it as the best air-cooling that will fit in this case on an AM3 without modding.

You can also add the 200mm side fan with the heatsink I mentioned, as I plan to myself.

If you're worried about noise - The Xilence red wing 120mm are at a quiet 21db(A) and 68CFM which is great, they're so quiet, you don't notice them compared to the AMD Stock fan.

Nice setup! I love that board I used 3 of them in seperate builds and all were gravy. Great OC'ers thats for sure, everything was just smooth. I liked them better than my Evga classy 759!

Managed to nearly get my Vulcan set up earlier, but ran into a few snags.

Was able to get the motherboard + 8pin power connector set up properly however my Hyper 212+ was too large for the case =/ I couldn't get the top back on all the way.

I'm more than likely gonna return it in the meantime, and once my money situation levels out buy it again along with an H70 and some green LED Fans along with a 200mm Fan to slap on the side panel.

Oh, and is it possible to hook 4 fans up to the fan controller in the front?

I really like the board too. Full of features and little things that helped the installation of it so much easier. The hardest part with the whole process was the cable management. It was a pain in the @$$. I hope I didn't do a too bad of a job with it.

I'm planning on going for XFire but the cables for my PSU are so stiff that I don't know how I'm going to be able to keep it neat in there lol.

The case is a lot smaller than I originally though and the handle was surprisingly solid and good quality.

My only gripes is that for some reason my motherboard defaults the ram to a DD3-1333 with a 9-9-9-24 timing instead of the listed 6-7-9-24 listed. So I ended up forcing it to those advertised clocks while running it at DD3-1866. And it seems pretty stable so far. Sometimes, Windows shows 6GB installed and sometimes it will show 4GB but when I check CPU-Z, it shows 3 DIMMs with 6GB total. Anyone know why?

Also, the stock heatsink and fan seemed kinda loose to me as compared to non-stock heatsinks. I'm idling at 40C and maxed out a 85C (Almost 90C) when I run Hot CPU to do a burn in. Stabilizes at around 65C when I play SC2 at Extreme settings.

I also found out that my OCZ Vertex 2 160GB and my WD Raptor-X 150GB was unable to be detected when connected to the Sata-III ports even when connected with SATA-III Cables. I had to move them to my SATA-II Ports, anyone know why?

I realized too late that the motherboard did not come with an eSATA, I don't know why they didn't include it. So I ended up connecting the top eSATA connection to one of the SATA-II ports. Does anyone know how to make this work, preferably as a hot-swappable SATA but regular SATA works too as long as I can make my Thermaltake BlacX work on it without using the USB 2.0.

Overall, it is a great case and an awesome build.

Thank you!

Not sure about your problem, but just so you know for the future before you get bashed to all hell, its not sata II and sata III, its sata 3 and sata 6 for the respective throughput that both handle.

Sata II/III is just a marketing gimmic
