I am just posting to let everyone know that the PC appears to be running well and give an update on things.
I added a second fan to my CPU radiator to operate in a push/pull arrangement. The motherboard CPU temp runs at about 15C now in idle mode. The CPU cores report running between 25-33C idle. At load, I could not get any one core to go beyond 53F so far. This second fan has helped some.
Overall, the Lian-LI case is outstanding. I am glad that I did not settle for something else even though I paid more for it. The air-flow is outstanding! And it is whisper quiet, or at least compared to my old workstation. I love the way that the drives are installed with rubber grommets for vibration reduction. However, there does appear to be one oversight in the drive bay design. If you tip the case (in transport or otherwise) so that the power supply outlet connector is facing the floor and the front of the case is facing the ceiling, your drives could easily fall out into your case! There is nothing to lock the drives in place once you install them. Or at least I have not found anything. The rubber will do a good job for short moves but not for upside down. The drives will slide out. So be careful!
I could not be more pleased with the power supply. It is quiet, has a lot of connections, easily locks inside and is not hot. My only gripe is that I could have used one more 8 pin MB cable.
I have not tried overclocking the system yet. But I will. I don't really have too much new to report on the MB. But so far, I am pleased with it. It really has a lot of nice features, including a power switch right on the MB for those times when your case is open and you don't want to have to reach up for the case power button. It also has an LED that displays boot codes as it goes through the booting bios. So if it fails, you can see what setp it failed on. After the bios loads, this display doubles as a temperature gage for the MB. IF you case had a side window, you would see the system temp at all times.
So far, I am very pleased that I went with the SSD for the OS. While trying to troubleshoot a problem with PPro that turned out to be an audio driver issue, I had to reboot the system many times. The fact that it still loads the OS in less than 15 seconds makes several reboots much less frustrating. I picked up another NAS and put 2 1.5GB drives in it. So I may start backing up the OS drive now since I no longer have a RAID-1 OS. If anyone has any good backup software ideas for win 7 x64 where I can backup (with incremental abilities) the OS drive to a NAS and allows for a restore from a NAS, please let me know.
