Started collecting parts for this machine about a year ago. I live near a microcenter, plus keeping an eye on pricing over a long point of time allowed me to build this for roughly 1k. The silverstone case had to be modified to fit the Zalman cooler which was a huge pain. I ended up having to cut out a template for the cooler to make it fit. The power supply i ended up using i could have oriented different but then I would have had the hot air from it blowing into the case. The way I set it up it blows out the bottom but the power cable is smashed hard into the side cover also. Everything else fit rather well. My temps are wicked low, and it was pulling an average of 60 fps in Middle Earth benchmark. I haven't even started tweaking anything yet but my temperatures are wicked low right now.
