    Nope.

    I had my computer on a mobo try from a P3 for a while, but it was scratching up my desk so I stopped.

    A tech station would be cool, time to investigate :D

    I have one of these and it's great. Pretty cheap too! I also have a Dange Den Torture Rack, great tech station, but more expensive.

    Interesting how many people are using the Corsair hydro cooler. I'd never even looked into it and didn't realize it was under $100, or that it actually offers pretty decent performance. Maybe I'm getting old but it doesn't seem like it was that long ago that water cooling was something exotic and all the pre-made commercial kits were under performing, leak prone gimmicks.

    from what i've seen, its about on par with the high end air coolers, but since the rad is moved off to the case fan ports you dont get any clearance issues. its easier to fit into most cases, and cant conflict with Tall ram.

    My H50 performed better than my Megahshadow which is still one of the better performing coolers. So yeah, the H50 is a great choice for cooling.

    actually once the side cover is on they're not to bad

    I'm just a bit miffed they didn't come with the HI/lo speed switches that the originals have so they are stuck at 700rpm 100cfm but atleast they are quiet and powerful

    I really like mine :)
    It cools pretty well, it's very quiet, it's low-profile & doesn't overhang the mobo much, it doesn't block RAM and it looks awesome :)

    You didn't just switch a 5970 for a 480.


    You didn't.

    Yep, the 480 will hold itself nicely until i get a 495 or a 2 480, the 5970 drove me crazy with noise and fucking drivers.

    Also, i might get dual 460 and a new sound card for the money i make from it

    Fuck im in love dont wanna close the panel
