    Thats not to bad. Its showing just under $20 for me. I'll have to think about and see if I can come up with that at all. I don't know how good that cooler is though. I may want something a lil more beefier so I can still use it in the future if needed. Thanks for the heads up on it. That is a great deal.

    The Hyper 212 is an excellent contact cooler Pops. One of the better ones on the market, and price wise is an excellent choice for air cooling.

    My temps stay in the high 40's to low 50's crunching 24/7 at 95%. I have all my machines at stock clocks. Temps also could be better if I change the fans to better fans. I also have them in push/pull config.

    i'll put that in my consideration pile. Its the only one so far lol. specs don't sound bad so even switching the fan to a higher rpm and adding a 2nd it should do pretty good.

    I'm getting high 30's to low 40's on the cores and low to mid 40's on the mobo sensor with the Xigmatek Gaia on the FX-6100 rig. The Xig Night Hawk gets about 2-3C lower and it's the same cooler as the Gaia except with a black ceramic coating (single fans on both)

    The Gaia is about $30 ($25 when on sale)

    Probably the same as the 212+ but I prefer the mounting system on the Xigs...

    shipping for that 212+ is just under $20. I love the look of that night hawk you got. Black is really sleek on it. I have to think cheap as possible given my situation at the moment. It'll be a few wks till I can purchase one anyways and I just hope it holds well long enough.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Alright guys. I be in need of something. Anyone have a 100ft net cable for cheap? I am going to run a line from my router to a network switch at the other end of my house. I already have a 5 port switch. I have the router in my living room with 3 crunchers hardwired into it and 2 crunchers in my bedroom using usb wifi adapters. I want to get rid of the wifi part back there and hard wire them in with a net switch. If you have something please pm me a price shipped to 24431.

    I'll think about it, but I won't consider anything until I know you have the RAM and it's working :)

    USPS Priority insured in a small flat rate box would have been about $5.20

    Guys, I have an extra C2Q taking up space and I just don't have a need for it, nor the funds to start another build. Make me an offer and I'd be glad to make it yours. :D

    I have a stock Intel HSF to go with it that should work, it's used but should do the job okay.

    Not sure on price. Something like $60ish. Honestly I wouldn't have traded my 5770 for it if I had known I would get a free complete C2Q system like I did. :laugh:

    What C2Q is it? a Q6600 or something else. None the less, $60 ish is a great price for someone that has the mobo to support that puppy. That will go quick.
