it's fairly basic for pc builders im sure.. but im proud of it anywho. its taken me awhile to get together the money and parts.. like everyone else im sure im interested in overclocking and also in liquid cooling (honestly it seems fun messing with that stuff) so my question is: (after you review my specs) can my system handle any alterations in the bios? what type of cooling systems do i need to run it at top potential? and what type of life expectancy or reduction am i going to endure with my vga and cpu if i do modify there settings? oh.. and what does the RGB in my "M.I.T" (bios) do? should i turn it on? and what setting should i use? what does this do?

im running..

windows xp (also need proper validation if anyone knows how to score that)

Gigabyte  GA-M61P-S3 (not SLI) motherboard

550w ultra power supply

AMD 64X2 dual core 5400+ 2.81ghz

Very cool case and a nice "dark" setup. Just tidy up those wires a bit and you'll improve the air flow/cooling as well as the looks! Just my 2!
