I built this rig for gaming and media. It is very quiet the R4 also has good air flow. The Xigmatek fans work well and the led's add a nice accent without being over powering. I did have to notch the thermal armor on the mother board to fit the radiator in without it pressing against the motherboard. I also mounted the HDD in the bottom 5.25 inch bay and cut out the panels that came with case covering the the top fan mounts to fit around the fans for my H100i. Bankai update: When I first posted this rig 14 months ago I had a pair of Asus GTX 760's In SLI and an Asus 1080p ips monitor. I added two EVGA GTX 970 SC in SLI and an Asus 1440p monitor. I am getting great returns on the second card playing games like Dragon Age Inquisition on high and ultra settings @ 1440p 60 fps. One of the drawbacks with two cards is that you get the overclock lottery with the same settings one card runs 1480 MHz the other 1430 MHz. I moved the faster card to the top slot. I had the same experience with the GTX 760's that's the reason for going with a Super Clocked editions hoping for better base line (and better binning) to start with. With two six pin PCI-E connectors feeding power to each card there would be plenty of power to push an overclock. I went with Asus again for the monitor because you can get cheaper 1440p panels with crappy stands, but add in the cost of a good monitor stand and it was a wash plus the Asus monitor had more input options.
