So I've been doing my research lately for my new build, some of you may have seen my posts. I put together a quick video for you guys so you can see what I have so far.

 

Build planned parts:

 

Asus Sabertooth P67 (when it comes out :glare: )

Sandy Bridge 2500k

Haf x

OCZ 1000w psu

Mushkin Blackline 1600 (7-9-7-24 stock timings)

Graphics (decision still in limbo but more than likely a 6970 with a second while a little later for CF)

 

Will post pictures and alike when I get my mobo and graphics in and actually start building.

Video? Did you forget the link?

Your spec look good. Make sure and get the Nvidia Edition of the HAF X, only edition worth getting. ;)

Just love looking at that case... :blush:

I may be thinking of the wrong case but cant you mount the psu upside down to draw cool air from out side through and out the back?

 

Yup you can mount it ether way, there are screw holes for ether orientation.

Just my opinion but i would think that having it upside down would be better for keeping it cool.

 

Technically speaking yea I imagine so, but I don't think it would make a huge difference. Though you have to remember there is mesh on the bottom, so technically that would hinder air flow just a tiny bit, so really ether way I imagine would net very similar results, I doubt it would even make any more of a difference than say .5 degrees in ether direction.
