memory - Crucial 2x2GB Unbuffered ECC DDR2-800 1.8V CL=6

Hi!

You may want to try ducting Ninja on rear fan. That gives excellent results without adding fans. HR-01+ is good choice, but since AMD's attachment method rarely allows rotating fan sinks, you need for 01+ a AMD board which has attach ment screws front-back and not most common up-down, making ducting far easier.

That Phenom is hot processor though. Its doable with ducting etc but putting like 500 rpm fan on Heatsinks gives no audiable increase in noise and makes drastic improvements in temperatures.

finally got the system put together.
see my latest post in the general gallery.

i decided to use an Antec Mini P180, which turned out to be a good choice.
