    Your links are broken :rolleyes:

    CAS latency basically is how many memory cycles module needs to access memory column. But it is way more complex than that :) If you are interested read this wiki page for more information.

    Do you already have sata cables? I'm not sure but looks like you wont get any with disks. Other than that, looks ok to me :)
    Where is your case? is it big enough? :D (jukes aside - you'll have to put 5 HDDs in it, not every case can handle it, some need additional braces)

    That's what package contains:
    122-CK-NF68-A1
    Driver Disk
    User Manual
    Floppy Drive Diskette
    Rear I/O Panel Shield
    IDE/PATA Cable
    FDD Cable
    6 x SATA Cable
    3 x 4-pin to SATA Power Cable
    SLI Bridge
    USB Bracket
    Com Bracket & IEEE 1394 Brachet
    Fan

    looks like you are ok with that :)

    And case has:
    Drive Bays:

    * 5.25” External: 5
    * 3.5” External: 2
    * 3.5” Internal: 6

    Ok here too :) But be carefull with cooling - you'll need good air input and output, so many hdds in one place can get really hot. Plus, you have 2 graphics and an energy hungry CPU. Generaly air should flow in the case from front and go out through back.

    Rey,

    She is looking good, but take into account what Shyska has said about heat from the HDD's (Hard Disk drive) they make alot of heat, so get a case with a 120mm fan in front of them to cool them down.

    Do newegg ship to Australia? I have used the Gigabyte 3D Aurora myself and found it a dream to work on.... http://www.komplett.ie/k/ki.aspx?sku=311890

    Loads of room and loads of fans, aluminum also to keep it cool, but thats just me!

    If theres anything else you need please feel free to ask...... if you dont ask you will never know!!!! :rockout::rockout:

    akasa eclipse 62/mirage,big case,wide and long with 120mm on the front and back.Big enuff to fit any graphics card in it.

    With the fan in front of my hdd's they never get above 25c.

    I dont like cases with the hdd tray at 90` to the front fan,they block the airflow to the hdd's and the air going into the case.

    thanks guys now i think im all set but the cooling..... ? hummmmm

    i like the case that i want to get because it represents my style....

    and if you guys are thinking that im going to be OCing then, im not OCing.... and look at the specifications of the case :

    Specifications:

    * Dimensions: 522 x 205 x 450mm (H x W x D)
    * Material: 1.0mm SECC Steel
    * Drive Bays:
    o 5.25” External: 5
    o 3.5” External: 2
    o 3.5” Internal: 6
    * I/O Ports:
    o 2 x USB2.0
    o 2 x Audio
    * Cooling:
    o 1 x 120mm Rear Exhaust Fan
    o 1 x 80mm Top Exhaust Blue LED Fan
    o 2 x 80mm Side Intake Blue LED Fan
    o 1 x 120mm Optional Front Intake Fan

    look in the cooling section.... it says that 120mm rear fan and optional front intake fan..... then i think what you guys said can be fitted into this case and with that it has 2 side fans and 1 top fan so there are about 5 fans all around the case... i think thats good enough... dont u ??

    well i did my research before choosing the case and you must give me credit because it has everything i need, want and everything you said about cooling..... lol

    so i think im all ready... but where would the front fan go ?? lol

    What it means is that there is a mount for it, but no fan comes with the case when you buy it.

    It seems like a decent case as well, and to be honest as long as you are happy with it then go for it. Cases really are personal opinion.

    It's 45cm deep (or long) that should be fine.

    People will debate about which hardware to put inside your PC but one thing that can never be decided on pure facts is the case in my opinion.

    Personally I love the Lian-Li cases. Why? Because they have awesome airflow, the build quality is awesome and I like the look of them.

    When I look for a case I always base it on airflow first and foremost (because I overclock) and then on looks and build quality.

    Also you want to make sure you're going to have enough space to get everything in while leaving enough room for airflow.

    As long as you are happy with it that's all that matters. I know a lot of people swear by the Antec 900's and the Antec P180s, but they're not my kind of thing and never will be. So go with what you're happiest with as well as making sure you have decent airflow to keep your hardware cool.
