      Awesome! No problems at all, runs great. I had some CPU overheating problems, but it was caused by the crappy intel heatsink not being seated properly. Getting that thing on is a nightmare - it's so much easier with screws.

            I had the same issues with my processor overheating with the stock crappy heatsink. I bought a cheap heatsink by Masscool I believe and it is working really good. I had even OC'ed for a while to 3.6Ghz and it was still staying cool. I since went back to the stock 3.0Ghz of the E8400 cause I really didn't see to much of a difference and didn't want to chance OC'ing anymore. The Masscool heatsink screwed on and was only about $16 when I had bought mine, you still have to be careful cause the screws will still strip really easy, I did that but newegg was kind enough to replace it for me.

            Get some Artic Silver while you are at it.

            I imagine you already replaced the heatsink though and if so what kind did you get?

                Does Intel still use that push-pin type mechanism to hold down the HSF?

                      That case is an Antec 900 right? Im thinking about buying the same.

                        Trick with the push pins: Ignore the spin crap, just seat them correctly and push straight down with a flat-head until you hear them click into place. Do them like a tire, do one corner, then the diagonal of that corner second. Set the mobo on a piece of cardboard so you have the give required without risking damage to the board.

                        I assembled 11 of the things Friday. Much fun was had by all.

                        Nice Rig, puts mine to shame :)
