It will be my personal rig, the best pc in my house . I want the case to be future proof and silent, I read that the 200mm fans are very silent.

I need to save up another 2 or 3 months to buy the graphics card, by then the prices of hd6850 and gtx 460 will have dropped at least a little bit.

Here is a pic of the motherboard, I really like the design:

Already ordered everything, I hope it arrives on friday. Made a few changes, for the cpu cooler I went for a Mugen 2 instead of the ninja 3, was cheaper and has almost the same performance. I was able to squeeze the cash a little bit and got 1600MHz CAS 7 ripjaws instead of 1333MHz.

I´ll post some pics as soon as everything arrives.

Cheers
