    I see you have i7 aswell will the i7 temps be ok with this case?? Do you have stock fan on the i7?

    And 3x260!!! Do they cool down in the spedo with close sidepanel?

    I am current running a TRUE on my i7 and I have a Corsair H50 on the way.

    I am not using any of the space dividers..just have it all one open case. I have replaced all the stock case fans with high cfm fans..I play with a headset, so I am not concerned with the higher noise the high cfm fans make.

    Yes, a Zalman would be better than the stock.

    It depends on where you live. If you stay in the place where I live, expect a minimum of 50C idle. Investing in a aftermarket cooler is highly recommended. Mention your Zalman model, if its a good one, its enough.

    Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 will be also be fine. Loses in performance, but it's cheaper.

    I wonder what's wrong with ThermalTake, did they really build good case (Spedo Advanced)? Hmm, wait, they still have that "Tool less PCI slot installation" ? Ah, good old TT, should be safe to say that will need to remove that "Tool less" kit and use normal screws.

    Yes, TT little clamps they use to secure PCI cards has this little downward lip on it that does not work with Nvidia GTX200 series cards. This leaves you two options, use regular screws or cut off the downward lip on the locking mechanism.
