    i think that should be the only thing you should fix right off the bat. Afterwards just do a tune up and you should be on your way. I mean a/c is great, but not needed to drive and neither is a new bumper :)

    Exactly, that was my thought :)
    Not quite sure there's much point in having my own vehicle at this point since I only have my permit (no license yet), but I guess it couldn't hurt to start fixing it up

    I'll ask my dad if he knows what else may be wrong with it, he had it until 2005, at which point he got a new car and passed it on to my grandparents ;)

    Gonna have my i7 down for a day or so. Adding another GTX 275 for F@H and swapping the Megahalems for a Noctua D14 to crunch harder during this summer heat :rockout:

    I'm finding it really cramped inside a HAF 932 because of the Gigabyte UD5's PCI-E Layout though. Trying every position I can think of with it :banghead:

    Pics to come..

    Pics would be awesome, I was considering the NH-DH14 as well, but opted for the far-smaller H50

    I think H50 is hit and miss. Inside my old Silverstone TJ10 case the H50 was normally 10C cooler than my TRUE. But since I switched to the HAF 922 the TRUE is actually 10C cooler than the H50. :confused: Really interested to see if the Noctua can deliver something better.

    I have a ridiculously good ghetto mod planned for my i7 rig. Looks like I'm gonna have to stick the PSU at the top of the HAF though:shadedshu Must sleep though! I'll post pics tomorrow.

    My H50 is push/pull as intake in my PC-A05S, I understand that there are better coolers (DH14), but I decided that I'd rather have something compact

    EDIT @ Trickson: WELCOME!

    Yup when it comes to performance/size H50 is the best thing around. Also makes water simple for newbies like me :laugh:

    I am having to get another car. I can't pay for the car i have now. So it look like i am going from a nice 2000 sebring to some POS.

    on another note i have the i7 crunching at 1.6ghz for now. I am running the Fort120 passive so i can't run it any higher.

    I don't even have any fans in the front of the case. The fans are attached to the rad that i have taken out. I am only using the back fan and that is all i am running in it.. I hate running it so slow but its better then nothing like i was going to have... you know what.. I am going to go look for a damn fan in one of the boxes or take one off the rad.

    When does your pump arrive, I can send you a fan if it's going to take long to arrive.
