Cable management is awesome also!
I was wondering to you plan on running those HDDs in RAID ?
What was wrong with the Mb's that you had to RMA it twice ?
Yeah the fractals are fantastic cases in many regards, the HDDs will not be raided. Maybe at a future date I run a raid but most of these are already full.
As for the boards, the first board was doa and the second board died on me (temp sensors went wack and then the boot settings went wack)

Tony Mac's list, I've booted this system into osx; however I'm going to be running it in Vbox.
So I finally got my new motherboard in, which meant I had some more overclocking to do.
I managed to get a max of 5.3 GHz @1.48 volts(http://valid.canardp....php?id=1650940
), however this was only stable running super p., Not wanting to go above 1.5 volts, I bumped the overclock down to 5 GHz @1.46 volts (no post here for obvious reasons). I ran it in prime for about 20 minutes and then saw my temps spike up from 78-86 (already very high) for 95 at which point I turned the test off. (I don't have a great cooler, just a $10 Corsair A50)
I still doing a 4.6 GHz 24/7 overclock, however I've managed to bring the voltage down to 1.256 volts, with maxes around 65-70 in a closed case with fan spooled down, and 55 in an open case.
