I am about to order my new PC in about a week, I am just wondering what you guys think. One thing that I am not sure of is my motherboard and if I should use that chipset fan, any advice is welcome. Also I might be forgetting something so if you find something I have forgoten please tell me.(Besides monitor and speakers)

Looks like a good build to me... I have never put a ton of thought into my case fans... for the most part I just let my wife pick the one that is "prettiest", so I really don't think it matters too much.
If you want the highest air output with lowest noise level, check out the <A HREF="http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-fm121.htm" target="_new"> Silverstone fans].</A> The only downside to these is that they only come in white. These fans rock otherwise. :wink:
Wow, I am definetly putting more thought into my fans next time a build... I never have cared that much before, although I don't do the extreme OCing that many of you do, so maybe I have just never seen the need. Although I have been thinking of OCing the new rig I got... just wanna see how fast she will run.
Dude, I took that link serious for a minute... I was looking at the pic saying to myself "How the hell is he going to fit one of those in his case??" And then I started to read... very funny by the way
Dude get an A64 or will have to figure out how to mount that <A HREF="http://www.wholehousefan.com/theghost.html" target="_new">Ghost fan</A> (hehehe) and then you wont have room left for a killer video card. Just imagine, smoke alarms going off, fire dept being called, just because you need to have that really nice Intel Prescott processor. ROFL.
I'm sitting here looking at a 7000 Cu that I just pulled off a board. This sucker has to weigh 3 pounds. The motherboard has a warp in it from the weight. It's like mounting a shotput on your MB. If you use these or the solid copper 7700's I would be damn careful. If this puppy broke loose it would break your Vid card in two!
