Guess with no one chipping must be ok. Had to order a Sapphire 5870 thru Ebay, along with the SSD bay converter, and the Intel SSD. Had no choice but to go thru Ebay on those but all sellers have a 98% rating or better. So hopefully I won't get screwed.

Is it too late to change out the Arctic Silver Ceramique
for Arctic Cooling MX-2 or OCZ Freeze?

Didn't get the ceramique, got the AS 5 instead with the combo, and yeah I ordered it. My 4th build with that AS 5 and had no probs..
