    buy my gear!!! I'll do you an even sweater deal on my 5850s if you want.

    Im still waiting for fourstaff. If he got good results. then hes gonna be buying my gear.

    If i cant sell those F12 fans, Im just gonna use a small pair of cutters or something and take the fan off them then use the frame as a shroud for my 920 to stop the noise when the fan ramps up

    that looks like a nice step up,plus the tf version is nowhere near as noisy as reference or gainward/palits twin fan jobbies.

    Yea that's what I like to hear, low noise, but tbh I prefer low temps. I'll gladly battle the noise of a fan at 100% for under 65deg. temps. My HDD hot swap caddy is the noisiest PC component I've ever owned/heard so I'm not fussed about noise much lol

    Resits early September. What a waste of holiday.

    I probably should consider seppuku then. Where do you live? Or at least a general sense of direction, eg 10 mins from Hyde Park etc.
