Nice build. Yeah, those 6850's run very cool. I probably would have mounted the CPU cooler horizontally rather than vertically though.

yeah i was thinking that i just need some thermal paste cleaner and ill probably buy artic silver too :) still it stays pretty cool though ive never seen it go over 49c underload

I have the same cooler as you and I did the exact same thing and mounted it that way when I did my build. I have since mounted it the other way and do get a few degrees lower than I orginally did but that could be due to a better contact with the Cpu or the artic 5 I used or a combination of both.
