    I took out my 200mm fan and put two 120s in its place. I think having two fans looks better.

    I actually don't know why that's there. MicroCenter put that there after they put in my Zalman cooler last year.

    I took my cooler and PC to MC and paid them $50 to install it for me because I didn't understand all the brackets, and they put the tape over it when it was done. I think it's some kind of "proof" that they did it.

    Agreed, it looks a heck of a lot better than mine! My biggest issue honestly is that my new power supply was non-modular so there's only SO much I could do with it anyway lol

    Stop blaming the components...LOL

    Also, about that metal rod... think of it more like an antenna to get you better surge protection.. it'll zap the rod and not the PC..

    Thanks :) It's a lovely PC, I just hate the fact that the motherboard doesn't allow manual voltage. Only auto.
    I've never bought an MSI motherboard since then.

    I actually shut off the PC when I know a storm is coming in, and I also unplug all the cables and shut off the circuit going to the office. I know it might be a little much but I don't want to fry any of my electronics.

    They seem to do a pretty good job in their own it seems.

    With the amount of precautions you take, I'm impressed with the amount of failures of hardware components you experience.

    Looks good. Keep that front clean, front fan LED brightness is a pretty good indication of overall system dust level. I've seen some machines were the front is completely dark despite the blue LED fan behind all the dust.

    I replaced the old fans (black plastic with LED) with these (clear plastic with LED) because one of them seized up and burned out so I went ahead and did both. The front panel was so dusty I could barely see the LEDs so I took the air compressor to the front bezel and blasted all the dust out, and I plan to regularly blow out the rig to keep it this way

    Since your front panel is removable, and quite similar to my old Rosewill Challenger, I'd just say run the whole thing under water from both directions. Way easier and more effective than compressed air. Just make sure it's not dripping when you put it back on. I usually use water to clean dust filters actually.
