Man that new case you have is packed. Looks ver crowded, good it has 3 massive fans at the bottom end.
Liking the read
Let's go by parts;
Reason I moved from cooler to cooler was because I didn't really enjoy the H50 at first, wasn't cappable of keeping the X4 965 neither the X6 1055T @ 4Ghz under 55ÂºC load, then bought the Noctua NH-D14 and it was more than cappable of doing it. Then Sandy Bridge came out, and realized I didn't really need a great cooler as my 2600k is semi-golden and I could easily do 4.5-4.6Ghz on the FrÃ*o. Then I just wanted to try the Hydro-Series from Corsair again, as I wanted to have more clear space in my case, bought the H80 with x2 Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM fans and I was suprised to see a 6ÂºC improvement over the FrÃ*o (It is like 1ÂºC better than the NH-D14), which allowed me to make an easy 4.7Ghz for 24/7 OC and even 4.9Ghz for 24/7 gaming. Not to mention the overall case temperatures dropped a couple of degrees, and my GPU's were like 2-5ÂºC cooler.
The Raven RV02B-W, I simply love it. The x3 AP181 fans are group of beasts which can make a Multi-GPU system be cooled as if it was a single GPU system, I love it.
Hopefully my next upgrade itch won't come to me at least until January 2012.
