    Very nice.

    Great to see the G4 conversions on here.

    What sort of temperatures are you getting?

    Uniqine Heaven 5 times in a row and graphics card's terperature was max 75 C.
    Immediately after that, Geekbench stress test (0,5 h) and processor temperature went to 62 C.
    OK temperatures I think.

    Cougar Vortex fan blows air in and not out as before.

    This is very very close to what I want to do: drives & PSU in the original location, no Optical drive, case fan location reused.

    Sorry to ask the dumb question, but I'm new and don't recognize it: is that a stock Intel cooler?

    Correct, an intel stock cooler. Another, better cooler in the same footprint is the Noctua NH L9I/a

    Many thanks! I've learned a huge amount here in a very short period of time. And as I start to narrow down my purchase choices, the Noctua low profile coolers had risen near the top of the list.

    I'm trying to decide if a SFX form PSU is a good idea, with my main worry being that even if the PSU is narrower, the shelf isn't going to change depth.
