Wow...you went overkill on the cooling don't you think? I don't care how much you overclock lol. Thats an incredible ammount of case fans and such an expensive case. The rest of the build is solid enough though.

I agree i went overkill with cooling, but isnt it a good investment? and my case is pricey but i love the build and size, and ability to ungrade and exand so much with it.If i wanted to OC the crap out of my e6600 what would be suffient cooling to never worry about overheating. Are the fans i chose good(140mm). there was only 1 choice on newegg,lol.

the thing is, you can only keep a chip so cool on air. Even with all those great fans you would get to a point where you would need water cooling over air.

not true at all, im running 4x 120mm fans as well and it is a great investment, specially for overall system temps(ram, hdd, motherboard, chipset, etc.) watercooling is whats overkill and really only needs to be done on extreme systems or just for fun. otherwise at my highest overclock of 3.5ghz on my chip none of my temps went above 100f or 34c.

well 3.5 isnt really that high on an E6300. That's a decent OC but 4ghz is where it gets really hot.

I'll be having 9 total fans but will most likely going SLI on 8800gtx evetually and pushing my 6600 to about 3.6-3.8 So i wanted as much cooling as i could get, but with 5 120's and 4 140's in the side panel would i need a fan controller? Also i was wondering about the quality of m PSU and overclockability of my ram.

9500 Compatibility: Intel: All Dual Core Pentium CPUs (Socket 775) All Pentium 4 CPUs (Socket 775 / 478) AMD: All Dual Core AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPUs (Socket 939) All AMD Sempron/AMD64 CPUs (Socket 754 / 939 / 940)

I was told and found it to be a great heatsink. With my additional fans my system should be cool enough to OC pretty high.
