can you put the cpu under load and then post temps, you posted idle temps, they don't tell us much, put the cpu under-stress for 30 minutes to 1 hour and have hw running in the background and lets see what you got.

you need to set linx at 4 threads to really stress the CPU. Dont get alarmed though with the temps youll see, your processor will rarley ever see these temps. very nice rig! If thats the overclock DS supplied you im glad theyre tweaking the voltages =)

Hey Alex,  is this the location to post for costumer reviews?

Also I had another question, I noticed in the box with all the left over parts, they forgot to include the bracket to hold multiple graphic cards that come with the HAF-X any chance they can mail it or just call costumer support?

Thanks

@Conan,

Sorry about the delay, I've been extremely busy with some exciting new projects at Digital Storm.

I added a video card bracket to our shipping list, it should ship within 2 days from here.

I am also having our team move your thread to the "Customer Reviews" section.
