I hope the title is pretty self-explanatory :)
I thought it would help haha.

Core i7, Raidmax Sagittarius II, EVGA GTX280, etc.

My overall experience was great! I actually picked it up - and the first picture is how it looked. No packaging boxes and whatnot. I didn't care - I don't need them.

People at the CP location are very friendly, and didn't waste any of my (or their) time. Then again, I was the only person there, so that tends to help :)

Very clean install - they could have cleaned up the cabling, but for what I paid them to do so ($0), not too shabby.

System is blazing fast - I'm using Rhyalus' thread (http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=5208) to get everything cooking/benching as I write this.

Of special importance - the computer is SILENT! Like, I'm in shock how little noise the Asetek LCLC and the additional 120mm fan make. I can't hear it over the sound my LAPTOP makes. Phenomenal stuff.

Built-in LED's look great - they'll probably bother me at night though lol. Whatever, I can adapt.

Core temps/GPU framerates are perfect, especially since I'm only running at 1680 x 1050. Less pixels = more room for perfection :)

Final note: the case. It's actually smaller than I expected, but everything fits with PLENTY of empty space, so I'm content.

OVERALL: 10/10 for my CP Experience. I'm a stickler when it comes to passing compliments, so this is quite a gem. Damn good job, CP.

Looks great!  I don't think that you need more space right now....could you add another GTX280 if you wanted to in the future?
 
So on that case there is a side 120mm and a rear 120mm?
 
What are the temps on the CPU cores when you have just been "using" the PC and not stress testing it?
 
Good luck with the PC - have fun!

Yeah, the side is a fan mounted to the side window, and the back is the Asetek LCLC.
I could easily add another GTX280 in there - but not really a third one. It would be quite a squeeze with trip SLI. Not that I really need it. I'll add in another one when I really need to.

The temps are from 43 - 48 C; with the GPU around 60 C with <1% load.

Rhyalus, can you answer the question I had in the OC forum? My sensor movement is 18 18 16 17. Seems a tad high - I'd think they should be in the single digits. What's going on?

I never tried the sensor movement tests but I'll tell you this....
 
When you OC, the CPU temp jumps dramatically.  My system is not overclocked, but I have worked on i7 950's before.  With a simple increase to say 3.5 GHz or so, you idle a couple of hundred MHz higher when not on full load.  This may bring your core temp to 44-50 c depending on your cooling.
 
Go full blast using prime95 or something else that uses all of the cores, and you fly up to 75 or so in a couple of seconds.  You then approach 85 or so over time (hopefully assymptotically).
 
I don't have a system to play with here to help you confirm that your #s are normal... I would go to some of the great overclocking forums and read up or post there.  Just google "overclock forums" and you will find some busy sites.

Thanks Munch - it's working great. OC'd 1 GHz up, and everything seems fine. I need to reseat the Asetek LCLC, I think. The cooling isn't great
