    Not going to get anything better than 4850 for this rig. It's just going to be a LAN computer.

    Next rig will be my "spend tons of money on awesome computer" setup. Planning on putting in 2 of Nvidia's new cards in if their worth it. If not, I'll just put in a pair of 5770's.

    Thanks for the help Don!

    np man, but still you could go with the OCZ psu, the corsair is a bit overkill imo?

    I plan on not building my next rig, but instead, upgrading this one and using the parts that I have now for my GF's rig.

    I have alot planned for this rig, and I'll make sure to update you guys when the parts start coming in. ;)

    Added another 120mm this morning.

    [​IMG]

    It's a bit louder, but it moves alot of air, can't really complain since it was free.

    My under load temps dropped about 5*C, and I'm pretty sure it's only that small of a amount due to room temp.

    Added a Evercool 80mm for rear exhaust.

    [​IMG]

    Oh, and I plan on ordering the following this week...

    [​IMG]

    I'm planning on putting the 140mm on the bottom of the case, and the 120mm in the back, should look pretty good.

    Hopefully my temps will drop. We'll see.

    So before the UPS man showed up today, I removed my exhaust fan and my bottom intake fan....

    [​IMG]

    I think the intake fan was doing it's job nicely. :laugh:

    Then the UPS man came with a bigger box than what I thought would come, Daboh? Did Cooler Master send me the wrong stuff? :eek:

    [​IMG]

    Nope, they just packed it well! :D

    The window is sooooo clear. Too bad I already got my finger prints on it. Guess I'll have to wipe it down later.

    Night shots!

    Took the mesh grill off the side 120mm it made my case sound like a wind tunnel as the fan was trying to suck in too much air. I'm going to replace it with a black 120mm grill soon. So one of my cats doesn't choose to stick a paw in it. (Although I'm pretty sure only one is dumb enough to do such.)

    [​IMG]

    I know, it's on the floor for now, but I put a board under it so it won't suck in as much carpet fibers into the PSU. (The 140mm fan has a filter.)

    I get my new corner desk on Saturday. :D

    Moved my "High Performance" 120mm fan to the back of the the case for exhaust, as an intake fan it works great, until you want to put a grill of any kind in front of it and it makes the sound like you left a car window barely open at 60MPH.

    Did some more cable management tonight, as well as cleaning out my fans/PSU. My set up has been on the floor one day and I'm already finding tons carpet fibers in my filters. Can't wait for my new desk.

    Might change the Rosewill fan out for a Cooler Master one if they ever come back in stock.

    So, good news, I hopefully have a Zalman CNPS9500 led CPU cooler coming to me by next Friday or so. (Damn eChecks on paypal take forever.)

    Also, I took some advice from another TPU member and remounted the Rexus NMB fan like this.

    Changed my order up a bit.

    [​IMG]

    Might change out the fans for Cooler Master ones. Not sure yet.

    looks good bro:toast: was about to suggest the same thing:D

    i have some of the CM fans, both the 120mm blue, 140mm blu and the regulars, and they do not make a sound, my cpu cooler and graphics cards is the things that is the most noisiest,

    I have five Cooler master 120mms and one of their 140mms, they are VERY quiet. My Rexus NMB fan and my current CPU cooler are my loudest, with my graphics card being slightly louder than my cooler Master fans.

    Which is why I want to buy more cooler master fans. :D

    It's about the same for them in the US.

    I'll just grab another Cooler Master 120mm and one of their 80mms and call it good for that order. Just have to wait for some stuff to sell/the 80mm to come back in stock. I'm in the middle of finding a more steady job. So we'll see how long it takes me to get the funds together. (I also need to buy a LCD TV to replace the big junker my girl and I are using currently, it takes up far too much space.)
