If you got proper airflow, dust really shouldn't settle.......... should it.. Either way it seems your ****** if you do ****** if you don't..... dust or intake hot air.... hmmm front mount psu maybe??

I was talking about when the computer is turned off. Sometimes I leave my side cover off so I usually cover the psu up when it is turned off.

Ok, so I took some of your suggestions and changed some of my components, and (with rebates and shipping) my total is $1,603.58

Any more suggestions before I buy in about a week or so? I changed to an i7 920, went with the cheaper xfx 5870, changed the RAM to the OCZ, and changed to the Prolimatech cooler

Also I fixed the case fan bad link, it should be correct now, and for what I am ordering I get a discount if I order 8 of the Apevia's, so I stuck with them

It looks good to me I'll be interested in how that MSI mobo works out.

i think you should go with the roswill fans, they are cheaper, quieter and move more air... more CFM = good
