Ok guys

I finally stopped talking about it and went ahead and built one. I gave the XPS 630 to the wife to use for work:) So far I've ran Prime 95 for 8hrs and reached 63c with the H50 at max and it idles around 35-40. I plan on adding a fan for the push/pull effect that everyone says is much better.

Overall the build was very easy with the Haf 922 case which I highly recommend for a "mid" tower. It's got great airflow and decent wiring management (took about 4.5 hours from unboxing to installing windows 7. Then another 4 hour for other software/games to install.

I almost bought a pc from Cyberpower as a member from another gaming clan swore by their pc's but after reading the 32 pages of unhappy customers I decided to do it myself and am happy I did:)

Let me know what you think.

Thanks,

Dean

Looks good, what was your total cost? Just wondering so I have a general idea for myself one day.
