I will. I'm kinda stuck with 2 80mm fans, but that's fine. I had to take out the side bar and the fan to make the xigma fit. I used that 80mm fan in the side bar and put it on the other side of the case facing the harddrives. 2 80mm's and 2 120mm's. I'll post pictures of my opening and adding parts.

*edit*
Ahhh...Got everything in today. I got home around 1:30, started around 2. Finished at 5 PM. It started the first time The LED's look good. I got a couple of pictures, but at night it will look better. I will now be trying to install the OS and whatnot. Be back in a couple of hours with pictures.

*edit2*
Ok, I installed the OS and the drivers and stuff. I finished everything, but I can't get to my BIOS settings. Whenever I start the computer and hit "Del" It keeps going and tells me its searching for Pool Data or something and it just boots up normally. Do I need a floppy drive and to install the floppy disk included with the mobo? I don't have a floppy drive and didn't think that could be a problem, but if it is, I can get the floppy drive off the old computer and install it on the new one. Please I need to figure out all the problems with this card. I also am only getting 100 FPS on CS 1.6, which is not good for such a high end card and cpu. I tried net_graph 3 and fps_max 200 or whatever and it still stays at 100 and that's on the main screen/idle.

Well, I figured it out. Now the next problem is....why am I getting such a low fps in CS?

Q6600 and 8800GTS G92 = 100 FPS Max in CS 1.6?? Uhh...I downloaded the latest drivers and turned Vsync off. I tried many things, I will try older drivers, but hopefully I can find the problem.

Doesn't CS 1.6 have a 100fps Cap?

I'm pretty sure CS 1.6 doesn't have a 100fps Cap. I remember getting 100+ on my old system when I messed around with the settings. I didn't set the slider to performance, I set it to Quality. Hmm...ill try that. And No, I didn't OC anything yet.

Around Idle, I'm under 30C for all the cores. With 2 Mozilla Windows open, Pidgin, UTorrent downloading 3 programs, Windows task manager, Counter Strike, and downloading 3dMark06, I'm at around 8-10% CPU Usage and my Temps at 33,34,31,26C. How does that sound?

I have no idea. I just used Core Temps. Now that you mention it, I assume those are just the CPU temps not including the GPU or the rest of the computer right? What program can I use to get the GPU temps? I'm also downloading 3dmark06 and will be testing it tonight. Avg. is around 11-12k correct? I want to also OC.
