      I could look past the a top of the heap a Liquid cooled Zambezi as a starting point while the 16Gb being a nice plus... But for me using that case and then trying to wring out any great results with its PSU is nuts. Sorry!

      If I was looking to OC using this customized Asetek-sourced cooler, you should know it wasn't super great. It can pretty much get you 4.5 Ghz in silent mode, past that and you juggle the fans custom setting and what you'll accept in noise levels. Most said its' "high" performance setting is just to much of a ruckus to be used. Most said it was only marginally better than a good air cooler. The other is the 970 mobo, if really think of more than 4.5Ghz you need more access to voltage tweaks and once in that realm components around the CPU socket could be verging on a little hot for full time, especially for the air flow that case could provide. Personally if building to such a level I'd be more inclined to a 990FX mobo.

      And all that talk leads me back to that case and PSU not some to even think of using. I suppose you could dump it on C_List for $30-40 if lucky and then move on, but even that it's not any great deal.
