CD lots of
CD that 900 is awesome dude. Inspires me for my build im doing in a Antec 900. I mounted the rad to the front too
when I first got an Antec 900 years ago I took all the bays out and said Dayyyum that could fit a PA120.3...but it couldn't
It will fit any 240 though.
yep, I got a koolance 120.2 in mine
ya know what Chicken Patty, im thinking of just going with an AMD setup for pricing and all ill be doing is gaming on the new machine mainly, I mean Core i7 seemed to be a short lifespan due to core i5 release.
the six core is coming out supposely soon its still socket 1366 .
im not really worried about the # of cores on a CPU as its taking software makers so much time to utilize them.
True, but i meant that we have a bit more life with this socket. At least we can upgrade to something if we want.
I'm saying I hate it when people externally mount their radiators. I think it ruins the look, but the way he mounted his reservoir and pump externally actually look good and it's unique.
heatsink and case im unsure about, videocards im unsure which model to go with.
By far one of the best looking AMD boards I've seen.
As far as video cards, I think it depends on your preferences for coolers (quiet, or heat outside the case). AKA narrow it down to the 4870 with better cooling, or the 4890's.
Cooler get a Xigmatek S-1284 (I think it works well for i7 and Phenoms because of their bigger IHS) and as far as case, post up the ones you're considering.
I think you could probably find a better choice of PSU. And honestly it's super overpowered for what you have configured. I assume you're looking to the future with that one, right?
ya and ive never had a antec fail on me. That CPU cooler looks good, other than a TRUE120 or TRIFX14
Yeah and they're a tad cheaper too May I suggest this PSU:
Pricier than the Antec, but this thing is a BEAST and it is hawt sex. I've used Enermax PSU's for a while (on my 3rd or so) and they have been rock solid. Larger diameter fan should mean a quieter PSU under load than the Antec, and I personally think it's just about the greatest looking PSU I've ever seen. Nice beefy MIR on it too.
ya, antec or enermax i look at mainly.
I was then Thinking maybe selling off my current Athlon XP for a Athlon 64FX 939 after the new machine is built, and have these parts
Ooh Athlon 64 FX chips
new machine then board/cpu upgrade for old, keep everything else.
One of the cathodes broke and the inverter/mic is in a crap position. With a cathode at the top and one at the bottom the inverter/mic is in the middle of my case, not easy to put it near a speaker so I need to get some cathode extensions.
Here it is..
Sits right beside my desk.
Specs are in my profile
If I could ever figure out how to unlock the multi on the X2 3800+ I have... it could be an FX chip. ;-) I already unlocked the cache... 2x1MB... wonder why they didn't laser cut it... lol.
really nice cable management... that case looks alot better in real life than the reviews lol.
Yeah I know, they always put the feet out which makes it look like a duck
Heres mine atm,i just need to have a dibble with the cables at the bottom section.
tigger.. clean your rad!!! lol, thats all i keep looking at, hah! Aside from the dirty rad, nice work on the cable management
tigger it looks good but makes me dizzy looks like everything is upside down lol
