1.0, 2.0, and 2.1 are all compatible with each other. Pretty much no bandwidth difference since PCI-E has yet to use the entire bandwidth it's provided.

I'll have pictures of my case up in 2 weeks. Still waiting to get all of the parts in!
Working on the eyecandy now. lol

Kinda mad that I recieved mine with paint scratched off and rust on the hdd bay studs. =P
Anyone know if I can just use a bit of black paint to cover that up? Or will it come right off?

Well I made a little collage of a few pics I made with my case


I really want to buy some white sleeved cables cause the 24pin and the GPU cables are so ugly and rigid. You think I would get a free 200mm fan from NZXT if I write them that I want to put another one on top?

Also the idle temps on the system with a few programs running:


I would try to overclock the CPU and GPU but I don't want to mess something up. I tested with 3DMark11 an got P5061 and with 3DMark Vantage 21255 points. When I ran FurMark my GPU got to temps over 85 celsius... isn't that too high? I stopped the test so it wouldn't overheat. If I where to overclock, wouldn't temperatures rise and make the CPU/GPU run hotter? Is the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility good for overclocking the CPU rather then making changes from the bios? Is there a point in overclocking my 9-9-9-9-24 1600Mhz RAM?

And did I mention that I'm proud of myself for assembling everything alone without doing this before? And it works so damn fast...too bad the SSD is 3/4 full
You make me want a white one now....but im going to paint some green on mine so maybe ill change my mind.

Think you may have confused my post with another, I will be buying a new video card with the new pci interface, not over clocking any thing

3) RAM cooler, did you need it? or just for looks?
1) Since my PSU isn't modular, I needed a place to put all those extra power connections I didn't need lol... so I hid all those extra cables in there instead of cramming it in the back.

2) My GPU sags really bad up top for some reason, it is a x8 I believe but after doing benchmarks, it made no difference whatsoever.

3) Don't need it, just tried it out for looks. It is pretty f-ing loud so probably gonna take it out.
