How sad, maybe my next board wont be from them. Who knows, it will be a little while before I even consider a new board. I plan on selling this build in the next year or so when I graduate college and land my first big boy job. A brand new "top of the line" build is going to be my guilty pleasure/gift to myself.

This time next year I should be gearing up for graduation. So Ill be getting all my applications sent out in about 9-10 months. Pretty excited honestly. I messed around and didnt take school serious for a little while so Im only graduating with my Associates in applied sciences but most of the I&C(Instrumentation and Controls) Tech jobs around here start you out pretty good around 18$ an hour or so (Good for my part of the country and cost of living just to specify lol) and I will gladly take that at the ripe age of 22/23 until I can go back and get my Bachelors in the grand world of science.

To get back on topic:

Ive had an MSI board and now this Asus board. May go back to MSI, I dont like the reviews EVGA boards get and for some reason Ive never really liked gigabyte.

Question:

1) Will a 200mm side fan fit with a Corsair H60 (push & pull)?

2) If it does - Is it better to use the extra 200mm on the side (as intake) or together with the original 200mm on top as exhaust?

Not sure about the H60, but for #2, if you have a high end graphics card it's much better to have the 200mm on the side to intake cool air for the GPU.

MSIs boards look ugly.

ASRock is great but their high end boards do not look nearly as good as ASUS'

ASUS' is a bit more pricy but they have the top notch aesthetic quality

Gigabyte is just boring, hate that brand

Thanks for the answer.

One more question though - Would a Silver Arrow CPU cooler fit with the top 200mm fan you get with the case, or does it become a problem with a 200mm on the side?

The OP isn't clear if the fan is a problem when mounted to the side or the top.

Has anyone ever placed a 240 radiator sideways so it intakes from the side panel? I'd like to remove the fans mounted on the panel and cut that area out while keeping the mesh. Fans mounted on the 240 will intake from the side.
