Finally upgrading from my clunky AMD 3800+ in a 7 year old bland case.

EVGA 750I SLi mobo
EVGA 9500GT PCIe video
E8500 dual core cpu
4B Crucial Ram
500GB Seagate Sata drive
Sata DVD And Lightscribe drives
Generic multi card reader.
Plain piano black case.
Frigging power supply didnt have correct cpu power connector, had to get BGF 500W from local Breast buy 30 seconds before they closed so I could power it up.

About $750 for the parts, sold my old rig on Craigslist for $250.

Figure I could add a quad core later, extra ram and video card/s later.

Thought about it, but thing's barely getting warmed up as it is.

psu fan = exhaust
rear fan = exhaust
what's your intake?

i wouldn't worry about CPU temps, I'd worry about the 780i northbridge
these nforce bitches runs hot

test it,.... run a torture test for a while, touch the heatpipes/heatsinks
hopefully, you won't diaf

It comes in just fine where the front fan would go and through a ducted intake on the side panel that leads right to the cpu fan. Ran a 3 hour truespace render, barely got higher than normal temp.
