    i have the R4, it's pushing a hell lot of air..
    silent too..
    but if you turn all the way up, it will get audible..
    not too noisy but audible..

    i like the fins tho..

    I have my HSF covered in tape, it looks really bad but it helps drop the temps a bit (forces air through fins instead of letting it escape)
    Well, I think I'll be ordering some R4s along with my H50, I was planning on a single Scythe Gentle Typhoon, but meh, maybe not :eek: <--love this smiley :D

    I sure hope the camera was so fast it made that GPU fan look like it's not spinning, or else you have trouble there :p

    That's the same cooler that came with my 9600GT :) I never even gave it a chance though since I had a VF1000 from my 8800GT that died (and PNY wouldn't replace, made a thread 'bout that years ago).

    I've been trying to decide whether I want a new ~$100 graphics card or a new case. I hate my case so much right now and would really love to just get a new plain one (no lights, no window, just all black and straight angles) and mod it. I already know pretty much exactly what I would do with it too. I think if I can find the right case for cheap enough, I'll do it since I have everything else to mod it with already.

    what size case are you lookin for?

    oh and the cooler works great! has kept my card fairly cool even while it was folding in the middle of summer and we have no A/C in the house.

    Actually, I think I did use the cooler for a bit when it was still supposed to be for a different PC, and I didn't have a problem with it. But, y'know, why wouldn't I use a VF100 if I had it already? lol

    Regarding the case, it needs to be pretty wide to accommodate the CoolIT Eliminator without being right against the side-panel like it is now. Also, the PSU is longer than standard, and the cables are ridiculously long (and many) so I need a lot of room to facilitate good cable management (and not have to redo everything whenever I add or change something). Only other consideration I can think of is that I currently have 4 HDDs and will probably get more in the future.

    So, basically, definitely a full-tower. I'd really like a Lian Li, but they're expensive.

    EDIT: Other problem is that I really don't want another steel case, cuz 40 pounds + parts is a bitch for LANs

    I know T_T
    $75 would be good, but the problem is that, for some reason, the only plain cases are way more expensive. Go figure :ohwell:

    Guess I'll just have to try and sell some stuff. Too bad my old monitor weighs 80 pounds and would cost more to ship than I'd be charging for it :laugh:
