Silver is another colour not on the image, so technically you could have two of two colours and one each of the other two Quote

1st. Enermax Eco80+ 500w PSU

2nd. Enermax Staray Mid-Tower Case

3rd. 2x Enermax Apollish 12cm Fans

4th. 2x Enermax Apollish 12cm Fans

I got the mobo + CPU, and I had a list of possible RAM choices. I waited till payday, then all my choices had gone way up or out of stock (presumably cuz of Windows 7 )...

So now I'm looking around and hoping to get RAM and HSF in the next week or 2 Quote

I do believe they are temperature controlled. We got one in for review but had to abandon it as we couldnt get it to runt he same speed as other fans.

Whether or not you can bypass the thermal control I'm not 100% sure :sQuote

place the probe on something warm that it will reach to, ima put mine on my hs so they spin up to max when the cpu gets hotter (going to be using them as exaust fans on top of my cosmos)Quote
