Final Specs:
Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz (Overclocked to 3.9GHz)
12GB DDR3 1600mhz Memory (6x2GB)
nVidia Geforce 9800GTX+ 512MB vRAM
OCZ 700W Power Supply
Multiple Hard Drives of various sizes (Mostly Western Digital 500GB's)

It was a pretty nice build. I only ran into one issue with some of the RAM being bad. I already sent it in though and am expecting some replacements in the coming days. That is why in some pictures you see 6 sticks, and others you see 3 sticks.

I am very happy with the temps and the airflow of the case though. I really spent A LOT of time making sure everything was orderly in the case (TOO much time, I am embarrassed to admit how long the cable management took...), but I think it paid off at the end. I was also very happy with the overclock, while I got it up to 4.2GHz and beyond, it is at 3.9GHz stable. I figure I can get it to 4.0 with more voltage tweaking, but right now I am happy with where it is.

Here are some pics of it:

I love it when they come with onboard power switches.

Video card requires 2x 6 Pin adapters, and runs very hot because of it!

SATA & Power cables all bundled.

4 Way fan controller lets me quiet the fans down when not needed.

What's the volume like with the fans? 747 on climb out, or 727 with hush kit on final?
