Pretty machine. Non modular power supplies are a pain, eh?

Also, the A70 is a badass looking heatsink.

RE: First Build
Looks awesome. How long did it take you to put it together?

I just got the first of my parts in the mail yesterday and will hopefully have the rest by early next week. Looking at your pictures makes me even more excited to build mine.

Thanks, It took me about 8 hours to put together. Including installing windows 7, which took longer then expected since I had to do some other stuff to get it to install. Good luck on building your computer

Thanks, ya non modular power supplies are a pain but it wasn't to bad. The A70 is so nice and its pretty quiet too. It fits just above the ram, i almost thought it was not going to fit over the ram.

Yeah, the A70 is pretty quiet compared to the Zalman, while costing almost the same.
