I love my v1000, only issue I have with it is the front USB ports are 1.1!
Cable management isn't stellar, but it's still do able. I've gotta take a dremel for a CPU backplate cutout on the mobo tray so I may cut a couple slots here and there for better wiring while Im at it.
I use a 212+ on a 1090T @ 4GHz 1.4v With the single stock fan set to silent in the BIOS I was reaching close to 70c. Adding a second 120mm fan I had sitting around dropped the temps by over 11*c with Prime95 bringing temps up to 59* max.

I don't like upgrading very often, and the ability to add a 2nd 5850 a year or two down the road for cheap doesn't sound half bad.
