My thoughts on the system:

Its really good. The weak point is the graphics, which is the reason why I am selling it for such a low price. It is really quiet actually. Im planning a wire management mod on Saturday. Ill post new pics then. The cpu has done well and is really quick- it has gone to 3.3 for benching, but it runs really cool and stable at 3.1.

The mobo is really good, and the looks and cooling are excellent. It is widely overlooked, I think. It maxes out at 471FSB, but im fine running at 3.1GHz anyway. I plan to get an e6700 in my future, so I should be seeing some 3.4/3.6GHz clocks on this board hopefully.

Not bad dood.

I have that same case for when I can afford to put a computer in it.

I was planning on getting that same power supply (may change when I build in April), and I've heard of people complaining that the cables weren't long enough for other power supplies in that case.

Did you have any problems with cable length?

No none at all. You will be fine.

Infact, I would reccomend that you cut holes in the mobo tray so you can route wires behind for a cleaner look.

I have the same case and had to run my hx520 under the video cards over the board. FWIW, they make extensions if you want to go behind the board.

great pc mate

1 thing, it kinda takes over your desk.. are there any other places you could put it (aslong as theres good cooling there). Personally i would want my monitor to be in the middle of my desk right infront of me, more comfortable that way. i had a mate that played with his screen to the side.. after few weeks he had to change this setup cos it was giving him a crock neck

maybe if you face the table towards the right wall.. have the tower horizontal behind your screen.

i know its got a top exhaust is there a back exhaust fan?

Yes, I know what you mean, but my room is really cramped. You cant see it on that pic, but there is nowhere else for it at all. I had to turn off my rear exhause, it was causing too much turbulance against the wardrobe, you could hear it in the next room. Also, I found out that my AF7 was constantly running on 100%, so i changed it to 50%. With these two changes, the PC is now really quiet.
