Update to TJ's rig.
Added a Thermaltake Frio CPU Cooler with two Corsair SP120 Performance Edition fans, along with an Aerocool V12XT touch fan controller.
The Frio was a slight bit harder to figure out than my Hyper 212 Evo it's replacing, but now that I've got it on it's much greater. You can tell the build quality's in there. Its red theme coupled with my red ram heatsinks and the red rings around the SP120s (swapped out my white rings) makes for a very nice look. Once I throw some red LEDs in it'll really look sick.
The fan controller is very nice, a lot higher quality than I was expecting. The LCD screen is gorgeous and it's very sensitive to touch; it's not a cheap screen at all. It doesn't take an undue amount of pressure to use it or anything. It did mess with my clean cable management a bit, because it has so many different cords, but it's still a great product and I'm quite happy with it.

about how much did it cost to make?

All together? Hell, I don't even know anymore. Over $1400, but other than that I dunno. These two upgrades cost around $150 ish, plus a 200mm fan I bought with them that was $20.

Wow. That looks amazing. I plan to build a pc once I get a job.

Awesome, a lot of people are getting into PCs lately.

Damn dude, looks great. Just get some red cathodes in there and it'll be fucking sick. I like what you're doing to it, it keeps getting better and better.

Dude i was thinking about picking up one of those fan controllers, looks awesome.

Thanks Insane, red cathodes are my next goal. The fan I got (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835146006) doesn't match up with the top fan holes on my case, which I'm pretty annoyed about . Apparently it's actually only like 190mm.

Oh yeah, NZXT fans are proprietary and they only work in their cases. However, you can use twist ties, or drill your own holes and it'd work.

Yeah I'll figure something out, I've got tons of things I could try. xD For now I'm happy with the controller and new cooler. I'm seeing better temps at lower RPMs, no need to ramp up the fans for gaming and stuff.
