As for WC get a rasa kit for 120, add distilled water, new clamps, and killcoil, 135. Multi colored tubes would be a little extra..

It kinda looks like you burned the fingerprints into the metal though... not sure if it will come off... Looks like potato chip oils or something got on it and then got real hot and burned... LOL
Lol, nah I don't eat potato chips, actually, most of it is actually thermal grease residue I believe. I reseated the CPU heatsink MULTIPLE times in attempts to get the "best" seal.

I just ordered some Antec Tri cool fans, and I'm going to clean the inside, and INDUCE CABLE MANAGEMENT and I will re-post for some post-comments from you guys.

You can GET THE ALCOHOL from wall greens right??? I will just use a lint-free cloth.

AND In the future, can ANYONE RECOMMEND GLOVES, whether plastic or latex to wear while building a PC???

Can you recommend me a sleeving kit?
I sleeved my computer with paracord. It's about $10 per 100'. I used two different types of heatshrink: a 4:1 ratio 1/4" (for individual wires like PCI-E and ATX) and a 3:1 ratio 3/8" shrink (for multiple wires like fan cables).
