Points for supporting the locals.

Present it like its the best PC ever, and it will turn into it. At least you dont appear to have the * hole wires problem, although you say you have one. Can't stand a PC on carpet. I can't even stand a surge protector on carpet. Good hardware, and it looks like a solid box...

Nice cooler, you will easily get 4.5 from it.

It's hard to say, since when it was first assembled it was a quite different spec. Recently I paid approximately $1000 for: the cooler, the CPU, some fans, the motherboard, the RAM and of course, the 2 SSD Agi drives. That would have been somewhat cheaper if I bought online from the US, but I prefer to use local sources and have the comeback immediately if something isn't working. Furthermore, if we don't support our locals, they will close!

Hey Foxy, I believe I am running a Hyper 212 CoolerMaster Fan and Heatsink. My comp currently runs at room temperature, which I think is awesome.
My personal goal for OC is around the mid 4 ghz range. I don't really think I can get close to 5 without liquid cooling. Also, my cable management is quite horrid.

Nice rig, what cooler are you using and what's your goal for OC? Check my rig out when you can. :)
