This Asus board easily does 4ghz (my goal) on air with the i5 760. Being a media pc, I will never be adding additional video cards (sli or crossfire), and although the Maximus has onboard X-FI sound (better than the realtek on the P7H55), I use HDMI out via video card to my receiver so not really relevant.

The Maximus sure does look nice though

hey guys i,ve benn thinking of water cooling my i3 in my vulcan, but i wanna keep everything in the case and also cheap... Lol. so ive been thinking of getting the ocz hydroflow block $25 on amazon, and a black ice micro 80mm radiator $29. i can mount the radiator on the rear exhuast fan w/ push pull xiggy 80mm.

do you think the radiator will be enough or should i say "better" than my current xiggy HDT-SD964 w/ push pull for the i3 530 @ 4.4ghz w/ 1.4v

wouldn't an H50 be ok for your application? and that fits inside the case up front for the radiator?

I love this case and was thinking about getting one, but I dislike the all mesh side panel. If I were to get another left-side panel and flip it, do you think it would fit? My reason for doing this is for a quieter setup and less dust intake.

@Sohryu76

so do you think that the 80mm radiator with that block will do the job, better or equal to my current cooler. I could a 92mm radiator for a little increase in heat dissapation.

if it doesnt than im sure it would only need a little modification. removing the mesh is not that hard, and its easly replacable with plexi.
