    i think that when you say "a few better parts" it might be an understatement. how much did that setup cost you?

    Love the Zotac board! How tall does that chipset heatsink sit? It looks like with the fan it's same height as the stock Intel heatsink/fan! And is that a "low profile" heatsink/fan on the CPU or is that the regular height one?

    i can measure it but the CPU fan is the stock intel cooler and heatsink it looks like it should do a pretty good job so i didnt upgrade it, i can measure it if you want

    I was just curious, when I bought the processor for my project it was what Intel calls a "Low Profile", which compared to the one that came with the processor I bought just a little over 6 months ago, it is low profile.

    Just seems like a massive heatsink on the chipset, but I guess with those beefy graphics
