I have one of these CPU's in the UPS truck right now. I also have a MSI 790FX GD-70, 7 R4-L2R-20CG-GP (5 case 2 heatsink) in green, 4 gigs of Mushkin enhance blackline DDR3 1600 (7,7,7 20), 2 WD 750GB Blacks (will be in raid 0), and an XFX 5850. All the fans glow green I will be using my existing aluminum full tower (as the current MB ( LanParty UT RDX200 CF-DR has passed away). I will try and get some pictures up when I am through building it (sometime between Wednesday and Friday) I think.

Oh yeah and a Cooler Master  212 Hyper Plus (to add  2 of those green 120's to) which I ordered from Fry's as no one else had them in stock.

PC is all built I am working on tweaking it now. I need to up the ram and cpu speed a bit and split my hard drives like I want them as well as grab an image and raid it on the two 750 GB WD blacks. I am still waiting on the rest of the fans though. I had to RMA 5 because I needed a different size and for a uniform color (Green LED).
