I cant buy this online? I had bad experiences with the Frys location by me. Im probably red flagged.
I think its in store only.
Maybe wear a hat and buy in cash?
I wouldnt want one of the managers to see me and get the satisfaction of me back shopping in their store. The problem I had with them was their fault.
I wanna hear the story now! what happened?
Its too long of a story
Got all my fans and fan cover/filters on the case now with a suprise of a 92mm I cut out on top all by myself lol I got some more u trim and walla!
Pictures are not doing justice at all with all the fans running showing inside the case because of the tint and the camera with or without the flash. Until I find a good camera its not worth to show how it doesnt look in real life. All I can say is wow that tinted acrylic compares to nothing else, it looks that good. Theirs so much air moving through this thing its nuts.
I cut a hole with my nibbler cutters for the mobo power connector, and i also use it to put my 120mm fan cord through I have on the rear and for the 2 120mm fans that will be on the cpu heatsink.
btw the nibbler cutters broke after the last snip lol RIP
Cool your fan filters came,, the top fan looks good, the side window is awesome looking with the filter, If you ever need more of it I'll send u the link, getting close to the finish, just a few more parts & it's going to be one kick-ass RIG
Memory ordered gskill PI Black 3x2 GB
I went to frys and got a 920!
Congrats man! Still wanna hear that story though...
Got the heatsink today and I also got the backplate from newegg today too so it worked out really great. This thing is awesome. The bios is showing my q6600 at 19 C with stock speeds, can't wait to oc
Ill make sure to leave you heat again. Thanks
lol np, thats why I ordered that heatsink when I thought i was building a socket 775 system. Heard it was the best. good to know
SCORE!!, Did anyone notice you at the store or was it smooth sailing. I'LL keep a look out for your Copper 120
lol I didnt see any of the original people there.
N/P I already have the mod planed out. just have to get the screws & spacers for it.Hardware store should have them. bring your camera if you want, the flash broke on mine. & I didn't get a new one for X-Mas
priced high, but in stock, doesn't come with the 1366 bolt-thru kit ether
i will bring the camera.
Heres a pic with my core i7 920 installed
Ooh thats hot!!!
Doesn't the i7 920 come with a stock cooler? Couldn't you at least use that for the time being until you can get your hands on a good heatsink?
I have the stock cooler, possibly
Im also looking at a fan controller for the 3.5" bay I have in front which works out great.
Nice bay controller,
Since waiting for this true copper heatsink probably a few more weeks to come in , I am going to use my stock heatsink so I can get windows and everything else installed. It will save me alot of time eating days of time up and if any problems arise for some reason. It would be alot easier to fix/replace if needed to take apart without that 5 pound specially mounted heatsink(knock on wood). This Thursday night it should be running.
Sorry for the delay guys, itll be worth it Its going to eat at me seeing a stock heatsink in my pc...
Ill be installing my Zalman copper VF1000 gpu heatsink today, but I need someones help to verify this please. Looking at nonLED fans, their is a black and red wire coming from the fan. With a LED fan their is a black, red, AND white wire. Would this white wire be the LED power?
Can you get me a pic of the connector. From that pic it looks like an RPM sensor.
white wire is just the rpm wire, for the fan mate to control the fan speed, the believe the Leds are built into the bottom of the fan, if you want to disable the leds,, see if you could take the fan off,, then black out the leds with maybe a marker
