yes... it IS horrible... but worth it in my opinion...

it's all up to the individual... like if you had a roommate who would be kept awake by a light to see the keyboard, instead you have the light behind the keys... not so much light and a cool neon blue glow...



miniature zip-ties help more than anyone could ever imagine... if you look close enough I have like a billion of them in my case... that's always a good tip...

where do you live?
you can get the q6600 for around $270 at clubbit. You couldve also gotten the e6750 for about $190 bucks and it can oc to about 3.6 pretty easily.

But do something about the wire management, it does improve airflow.

Is it the hangover or is that CD-ROM hooked via S-ATA Cable ?

well aparently where I live sucks cause I couldn't hardly find ANY parts... and the ones I found online were WAY out of my budget... that and the fact that I had to watch where I looked since the whole build is pretty much on credit cards and consumer lines of credit (i.e. best buy credit card, paypal credit line, and a few others) so my choices as for where to shop were relatively limited... that and the e6850 was on eBay and beat BestBuy's price for (I think it was) an e6500 for something like $350... and the e6850 should OC to somewhere around 4.0 nicely, and w/ the right cooling I can get it even higher...

and the wire management is still in progress... it looks a LOT better now than it did before, but I'm still working on it... thinkin about maybe wome heat-shrink tubing for some of the smaller wires, but there aren't a lot of them...
