hmm...I usually see others have their zalman facing the other way. Like the flow of air is horizontal, instead of vertical. Nice build though..

I think it might be more effective that way, since heat rises.

I agree.

Looks to be like the top fan is in perfect position too.

nice. I almost got a Zalman like that for my new build, but though I nearly cried the first time I saw it, I was afraid it might be a little too big.

Some day, though, I'll build a system just around one of those. They're just beautiful.

it really isnt that big. It will fit in a typical mid tower case.

thanks for the input guys, yeah the design of that blow hole in the case, and the zalman which blows the air towards that blowhole worked great, also the fan at the back of the case, so the heat escapes from both ends. And i have a fan in the front of the case to suck in that cold air, all fans are 120mm's. wire management? jeebus, it was difficult, not even using all the wires the PSU has, and dont forget all the fans that are in that baby, the case has 3x120mm's alone.
