Well, that could explain why your system was stuck in the burning in phase..

I bet the motherboard died and they had to replace it.. Hah.

Feel free to stop by and tidy up my case anytime Part of it's I'm too lazy to make it all crazy clean like other peoples...another part is I'm in there so much I wind up having to cut zipties, and redo them, big pain in the butt.

Aye, the systems i build for others i zip tie. I've got my system opened up quite a bit aswell. I end up just cramming everything into an empty 5.25" bay.

I wish I had an even bigger case though lol. That'd help. This full tower is a lot better compared to that midTower I used to have, but still I want one of those HUGE cases where it's like a foot from the edge of the mobo to the HD trays haha

No, but it's not real far off from one. It's an Aurora with SLI.

Nice, yea if you had gotten an ALX you would have had their liquid-cooling system installed with it. I hear from the reviews their liquid-cooling system is nice and the fluid in it lasts for 3 years without needing replacing.

alienwares are good, but expensive and apparently slow.

Go check out a system from overdrive.
