I Luv U Toss3!
Just wat I wanted to hear!

, but crap! (jk)
Doesn't getting a case with four fans... three 230mm fans (Top,Side, and Front) and a smaller one to suck it out the back... solve the heat issue?
That is my plan. And the GTX480 is doing me a favor; because with a case like that I'll really be ready for a System upgrade to i7. In about six to nine months.
I've been waiting a long time to get the best of cooling cases.
And an 80+ Gold PSU can help with saving power. Right? And improve performance too.
I need one of those too. I've had my eyes on the best 80+ Gold PSU money can buy for over six months!
