I recently decided to try my first build. Here is what I have so far.

Antec P183 Case
Asus P6T
6GB OCZ Gold 1600mhz
Corsair H50 push/pull
Front intake fan (added)
Western Digital Caviar Black 640Gb
Sony Memory Card Reader
nVidia GTX-260 Superclocked

I think that is it. Obviously I have some learning to do as far as cable management.

After countless hours of reading threads and testing I have it overclocked to 3.8ghz. I have tested it on Prime95 Large FFT's and Blended for one hour each. The maximum temp reached was 72*, from what I have read that is decent.

I am including a poor quality pic of the build in hopes that someone will point out any mistakes I may have made. If you see anything please let me know.

Thanks to everyone who is so helpful and generous with their time in the forum.

Hmmm, perhaps if you had better cooling things would be better. "Try a larger CPU HSF assembly" would be my suggestion... or would that bump with your case fan?

I had the Zalman 9900A in there prior to the Corsair H50. The temps were about 6c lower with the push pull H50.

I am currently building a liquid cooled 800D liquid cooled, was not a big fan of the Antec case and can't get the temps I want without going liquid.
