New build... nothing special. Thinking about removing the bottom HDD cage since I only have 1 SSD in it. Rather mount the extra 120mm there rather than at the bottom.

Might also get a passive Thermalright HR-02 CPU cooler. The H60 is a little bit loud for my liking, considering I don't really need to OC.

I have fixed it in the R3 with some zip ties and in the moment I got the fan just standing there because I´m still not finished with building.......
But I propably will screw the fan just in (throw the ottom of the case where the 140 / 120 meant to be mounted).
I need to try out which is the best way to do.

I will give you an update when I´m finished with my build smile.gif

It's the fan, it's not very quite at all, change the fan for two quite ones and it will be silent, I have a Noiseblocker PL2 on a 5v resistor and a PL1 straight to the MB header and I can't hear a thing.

Thanks. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna remove the bottom HDD cage and re-do the cables while I'm at it. Could barely get the back panel on redface.gif

Thinking about buying something like this too: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992007 :>

That does seem to be the culprit. I'll see about getting some new fans. Thanks :-)

Order the following parts:
-i5 3570K
-ASRock Extreme4-M
-PNY 8GB RAM @ 1600MHz
-PNY GTX 470 (Used; was limited by budget and had to find an older gen, used GPU to be able to upgrade from my HD 6750)

I'm a bit concerned about the GTX 470 (PNY Enthusiast Edition), as the GTX 400 series Fermi runs hot. I probably won't overclock it though. At 1600x900, it should max any game w/o overclocking lol. I was originally thinking about an HD 5850/70, but I figured with my horrid experience with AMD drivers in the past and the inability to actually find one as cheap as the GTX 470 (barely cost $100), it didn't seem likely. The parts should all arrive by Monday (not sure about the GPU). I will post pictures when the parts arrive.
