    Thanks, That case is too tall. I cannot go more than 20.5". I'll run as is a while and see how she goes.

    If you want a bunch of ideas on cases, look at the OCN Water Cooling Club and Picture Gallery. I'm sure you'll see almost every kind of case from matx to eatx. Originally I bought the HAF 922 because it's not too tall but is wider than most cases, and would fit my former desk setup better. Now I can use basically any size I want, I have an old heavy dining room table & and old kit desk but still manage to fill them up somehow. Course I have 2 AVR's and a speaker on the desk.
    I'm lusting for a higher end full tower but just don't want to spend the money. I'm surprised my "Accountant" didn't say anything about the $75 worth of water cooling stuff coming in today. Dang it this is as bad as modding a car: it never ends.

    Hi Guys, Well I posted and setup my boot priority to DVD then HDD and configured my RAID1. Gave it a label and loaded the Win7 Pro x64. I get a message it cannot install to this device. No signed drivers?

    Thanks, While I was waiting I made another attempt and pretty much all I did was choose refresh when the Win7 installer came up with my list of drives (only the RAID1 set.) As soon as I hit the refresh BAM! she is going in!

    Its installing now and the Fan controller probe I have stuck to the side of the block very close to the copper says 29.7c.

    Get all your Windows updates, will take a few reboots I imagine even if your copy already has SP1.
    What is it you want to know about in BIOS? Overclock? If not then not much if it's stable. Run Prime 95 with 80-90% memory used (task manager can tell you memory usage) if you want to make sure you're stable.

    Thanks. My BIOS is.F4, I understand there is an F7. I have not done chipset drv's yet. No Gigabyte ware has been installed yet. Do Win7 updates first?
    Then what? Thanks!

    I would like to know what timings and voltage you guys would do to this RAM if any. It's in my OP list. Im not going to over clock for a while. But From what I read You guys usually Optimize or dial in RAM.
