I used the extra fan clips from my Pure Rock and Dark Rock 3 to mount the Noctua fans.

PK3 will do fine. It's electrically non-conductive.

AS5 is slightly capacitive and may cause problems or short out your cpu if it gets on the capacitors on your G3258. To be safe, maybe use some MX-4 instead?

When you put some kind of thermal compound on the cpu die for heat transfer. You have to have some type of thermal paste or liquid metal on the cpu die, even when not using the IHS. I'm guessing you're going to put the cpu cooler straight on the cpu die?

If you're going to use liquid metal, be careful not to get it on the capacitors next to the cpu die. If you get liquid metal on the capacitors, your cpu might not work. To be cautious, I would cover the capacitors with clear nail polish. That will help protect it from the liquid metal if it ever gets on it. That's what I did on my i7 4770K and i7 4790K. You can see the clear nail polish coating on the capacitors in picture #30.

Thank you! The cooler itself blocks the first ram slot, but the fan blocks the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th ram slots. You could raise the fan a little to allow a little more space for taller ram. Check out this video It shows ram clearance with the Dark Rock Pro 3. I read around the ram clearance is 44mm for the Dark Rock Pro 3 and my ram is 42mm from the G.Skill website. It does barely fit, but also actually looks like there is 2mm of space left. So there is a little space left.

Use the Rockit 88 delid tool. Watch the video on the Rockit 88 delid tool product page. That's exactly how you do it. Just use liquid super glue instead of gel super glue when gluing the IHS back on to the pcb.

I bought the black PCI slot covers from ebay. Just search under ebay "maximum PCI slot cover"

I think it did. I used a Dark Rock 3 before the Pro in a push pull configuration with the 2 Noctua fans and had a 1 to 2 degree decrease in cpu temp compared with a push pull configuration with 2 be quiet fans on the Dark Rock 3. When I got the Dark Rock Pro 3, I immediately changed the fans to Noctua fans.

I don't think they're stickers. I think they're part of the plastic. I can't remember.

It wasn't for the Internet. It was making it nice for me. I thought I would just share it with everyone else. I just like making clean as possible builds, even without a side window panel.

I didn't put more money into hardware because I'm not a serious gamer. Like I said in the description, this was an upgrade from a Core 2 Quad Q9650, and I just so happened to find those deals on the used i7s and used motherboard.

Thank you! I didn't use a hard drive because of the noise. I had a WD WD10EZEX 1TB blue drive in another case I used before and could hear the hard drive. It wasn't that loud, but the noise was noticeable. So I replaced it with a ssd.

Thanks! I went with the Fractal Design Venturi HF-14 because of the amount of air it blows. I don't have them running full speed because it's too loud. I have them both running at around 715 rpm. Even at that low speed, they still blow a good amount of air, and are very quiet.
