    I have $50 to spend on my rig. I planned on getting 2 noiseblocker 1400rpm fans for my case to get some more airflow. Is there any other alternative to what i can do with my rig that you can think off?

    I decided to save it and keep it for when Monster Energy Supercross comes here to Seattle

    Thanks to who linked those Cougar fans to me. I might actually get some of those at some point instead of Noiseblockers like I was going to

    To each their own, i went through a phase where beer tasted like shit to me. I don't drink much at all anymore anyways, just socially, due to my medication's. I wasn't trying to make you an alcoholic but sometime's it's nice to just have a drink, relax and enjoy life :)
