my only suggestion would be to flip the cd-burner arround so that you can put the disk in facing you... i know its a little thing but I am thinking ease of use... it may help with the cable length issue as well? -SLOTh PS i would consider taking something like http://www.mnpctech.com/moddersmesh.htm...

65 is fine. Lots of stock actively cooled cards run ~90C under load. Basically, if you're not getting any artifacts, it's not too hot. 0_o really? my vm-102 on a 7800 gt runs at 70 under load (thats a passive btw) i do have a 120mm in the area spining at aprox. 6 volts. i know the vm-102 is huge......
