Everything running good, I just snagged Vista 64.

Only prob is the fans run pretty **** high... and I havent gotten the receipts from the guy yet. =/

Are there any known issues with the 780i board, and not being able to control the fan speed properly? Right now, he has the fans through the AUX, Chassis, and CPU channels. I've set them to manual and knocked em down to 1-10% just to see if it affects the noise, and not so much... They are running 3500rpm normally and spike. I'd rather not get a fan controller but it looks like I might have to.

As for the watercooling... Im not sure, its completely custom, but its high end parts it looks like... Is there a version of the Cosmos with a built in radiator? because thats what it looks like to me... its got 3 of the 120mm fans.

i dont think they would be 3500, usually only 80mm fans and the like will spin that fast.
