Last thing to do, upgrade the GPU. Thinking of going with the Gigabyte 560 Ti Super Overclocking Series when they come back in stock.

Very nice! Although the cables are a little messy. Wink

Question: Did you flip the fan on your heatsink? Cause stock it's drawing air onto itself in which case you might want to swap the fan to the other side for better air flow.

LOL. Wow I am really smart, hey so good news, I put the fan on the correct side of the heatsink and my temps lowered about 10 degress celsius, who woulda thunk it?

Thanks alot Hogrock! I probably would have left it that way for a really long time.

Haha, I did the same exact thing the first time I mounted that heatsink. It made a weird wind buffeting noise which lead me to my "d'oh" moment.
Nice machine. Gonna be smoking if you do get that 560 down the road.
