Great job on the build, that's a very impressive setup. It's just too bad you couldn't have waited on the 7900GT and saved some money. But anyway, as the thermal compound settles, the CPU temps should drop a bit. Also, how's that G5 mouse treating you?

The G5 mouse is very cool. Smooth as glass, same fit in my hand as my old MX500 and I love the speed adjustment on the fly.

Haven't got all the stuff setup on it yet, but when I do it will be sweet.

btw: in response to your reply in my new pic thread, yes I will upgrade the HSF soon. Looking at the Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 64 as it seems to be the only one that will clear the RAM. And only if I move the RAM to the other slots.

Heh, well my Zalman 7000 covers my nearest RAM, so I just put it in first. That'll definetly not be good if I have to ever take it out... but let's hope that that'll be a while.
