    I got one of those Chenming (typically sold under the brands of Cheiftech and Antec) cases and the airflow is great. I'm glad I moved to one of these babies

    Yep, I'd have to agree with all these folks. My Skyhawk case has taken a LOT of work to get properly cooled, and really, I'm still not done. Swapping case fans isn't gonna cut it with this case. The basic airflow design is flawed, and I wouldn't really know that if it hadn't taught me so much about case design by being so WRONG! Granted, it's a good looking case, and if you're not overclocking or overly concerned about getting the best cooling, it's a good one for the money. Just don't plan on too much upgradeability.:cheers:

    I have changed my setup only haven't changed references on forum yet - soz anyways. My new setup is the u guessed subject heading. Interesting board this is. im running Infineon 2700 DDR at 166mhz. The 2100+ loves this board. All my setup is now inside a High Grade Aluminium Lian Li PC61 case. CPU at coolest temp is 28C using some rather nice and effective Antec Reference Silver Thermal Compound. Average temps i find 33C very stable. Memory runs at 166mhz and CPU runs at 1.737mhz nicely. The case is nice and cool at 28C.

    Has anybody el;se bought one of these boards yet. if so, WHAT IS YOUR SETUP PLEASE?

    onebaddass i don't recommend that case. It's quite cheap i made that mistake by buying a cheap Task International.

    Enemax PSU's along with several other top brands are made in China by a company that sells under the Super Flower brand so if ya find one of these then save ya $'s and buy one.

    I thought Sparkle PSU's are ammong the cheapest and best?

    And I heard the Enermax PSU have been getting a little shaddy recently.

    It's not that Enermax PSU's have been getting a little shaddy but more like ppl tryin' to get the lower output ones (because they're cheaper) to run equipment that's well above the specs of them.

    You should just do a poll of all the people out there that have o/c systems and find out what the majority of them use. then if you don't like the way the case looks take some time and mod it the way that you like. It would be better than a production case because you get to pick the look and you would get the satisfaction of looking at a case that you have made the way you want, not the way some suit with autocad wants your box to look.
    And in most cases you will save money by finding the materials and shaping them yourself.
