    X51 R2 CPU Cooler Upgrade and GTX 970 Success ** Update Air Shroud**

    My X51 came on Aug. 21st and was very happy with the whole process... I told Dell what I wanted and they made it happen...pretty good discount as well but I think it was because they were trying to push all the R2's out to make room for the r3's. My system (when purchased): i7 4790...16GB...
