    Putting an add-in card right next to a Video Card's air intake does not make sense unless you're on a professional water cooling loop and airflow isn't a factor.

    Personally, is feel better with the wireless card. Only because it would have a better range, and in my mind, it's better than USB.

    I may be completely wrong but my mind is set. Lol

    Also, may have a buyer for this machine already. My best friend wants it, so I'll probably charge him for parts and labor.
    I'll total it all up when I get home from work, and add maye $150 to it.
    He wants to pay weeky which I'm cool with.
    I can then build the AMD fx-8350 monstrosity.

    Well, almost everything is done!
    Just waiting for the processor to come in. I'm hoping tomorrow as it was scheduled for today, but stupid Hurricane Sandy and her wind and rain and tree tossing, delayed it.

    But here is a picture so far. I did a quick power up test, everything works. Although the fan speed controller doesn't seem to work? I tried the fan PWR header, and the CPU fan header. they spin, but I didn't notice a difference in speed. I love how silent everything is though!

    Here is a picture of how well this case works with wire management.
    I attached the cooling pump, in a way. it's just hanging on there by the AMD "hook" thing.

    But I already have the CPU and mobo. Lol

    And the case I would skimp on but I'm picky. I want a blank one that isn't flashy. The obsidian 550d is perfect. Pricey though.

    I may just sell this system soon ad build a new one. I seem to have te most fun putting it all together.

    I'd love to do something crazy. Like a 6-8 core, everything liquid cooled. Ram,CPU,gpu..

    Which makes me ask...



    55ti 2gb... Can I liquid cool that? Is there an all in one system for that?
    There is no reason to watercool a 550. That would be a waste of $.

    Looks good. Your cable managment is good too.
    Are the RAM sticks in the correct slots? Usually it's the first and third from the left as you pictured it.

    I'll have to double check the manual again. Thought it said that way.

    But as far as cooling a 550.. I realize it's be a waste, but if I'm going to make a nice loop for the processor, it wouldn't be much more of a price increase to do the graphics card too.

    EDIT: the manual shows for 1 slot, it'll be A2.
    2 slots it'll be A2, B2.
    4 slots, obviously A1, A2, B1, B2.

    Maybe I'm wrong about the RAM,....

    Watercooling a 550? That doesn't make sense. Buy a better GPU and then, water cool it,..............

    550 doesn't produce any significant heat.

    I know, but as far as the fact I'd never use the full power of the weak 550.. (650... not 550)
    It'd look cooler to cool it, to add it to the loop. lol

    It probably will not help clock much higher to tell you the truth.

    That is, if you can even water cool a 650..

    I doubt that anyone makes a waterblock for it. Most people don't water cool this kind of low end card. So manufacturers won't see a demand for it.

    I've decided to get the 660Ti FTW model. That may have a water block.

    Maybe you can check for avialability of the waterblock before you order any card.
    Good luck finding what you want.

    I will recommend this. Again, You meay get a little more out of a 660 watercooled but if you add a $100 waterbolock on the 660, your at $350. Why not get a 670GTX for $370. You will get far better performance then the 660.
