I have a cooler almost exactly like it. It doesn't work that well, actually. Hope it works better for you than it does me.

Be sure to organize your case well. It would be a shame to see such a nice computer be defaced with ugly cables all over the place.

Oh btw, I still have my stock AMD heatsink from my 3200+, since I used a ThermalRight SI-120 instead.

I still need to get a new fan for mine. i'm sick of a CPU thats supposed to be cool, running at 55 degrees C using the stock when doing alot of work (which it does most of the time)

And yeah, I agree about those cables! My cables look a mess inside mine, and I have the case open, so everyone can see the mess! Ahhh...
I'll get round to it sometime,

but its definitely a lesson. Do it while your building so you don't have to do it later

As for the case, its kewl.
I'm sure that PC's going to be extremely fast!

Did you ever try removing the heatsink, cleaning, then throwing some arctic silver 5 on like I suggusted?

My 3200+ runs at like 29C idle and 34C load... and i'm using stock (not overclocked though.)

I got stock cooling, its pretty hot normally 35 to 40 range. I am going buy artic cooling, and heatskin soon. Along with a HD cooler, and VGA cooler. I never had a problem with stock until now. And I know my CPU is still in the safe ranger I want it lower...

Nice computer, you wanna trade

You can't go wrong with that Zalman CPU cooler. That's like one of the best.

It could get even better like mine Im using the same exact heatsink, but with a different fan. I modded out the fan for a Delta tri-blade high speed, 92x38mm running @ 7V.
