    +1! Even looks great with your "crappy" pics. You made that case look 100% better. :toast:

    thanks for the complements. :toast:
    I'm happy with the way it turned out. I can't think of anything else to do to it but maybe work on WM alittle more or put a couple holes in it to help with WM(don't think i will)

    Guys, I need a better cooler for my second rig. The stock cooler on there won't mount properly and it is burning up (60C idle for an E8400). I can't even crunch on it without it going into a fiery rage. So should I:
    A) Spend current $20 on alright 775 cooler for it, overclock the E8400 using that. (Freezer 7 Pro, cheaper CM cooler, etc.)
    B) Save up for an even better (~$50) cooler for my Quad, then move the DK to the E8400. I'd then be able to OC both (H50, TRUE, Megashadow).

    I'd sort of want to just go with the cheaper route. Even if I get a better cooler for the Q9450, I don't know if I'd want to OC it. I love having a completely stable main machine.

    I'd go with option B, Joe. I always buy new parts for my main PC and migrate things to the back up, or to give to friends/family.

    As do I, but as I said, I'm not even sure I want to overclock my quad. I usually have no idea what I'm doing and even when I get a stable OC, I feel no difference. Though even if I don't OC it, it would be nice to have idle temps below 60C again.

    I didn't think I would get into OCing at all too, but with some help with the folks here I've been steadily trying it out. It's pretty fun, at least to me, to learn how to OC.

    I've always had good cooling on my main PC, even when I wasn't overclocking. If there's a better cooler for your quad that'll bring temps down, then I would go for it. That way both your machines get better cooling, not just the one.

    I forgot to tell you guys..
    One thing i saw when i was painting the fans today(i did 2 yate loons,1 tri cool,1 silverstone)
    The tri cool had metal scraps in the magnetic part on the blades.I noticed from time to time there would be a click sound coming from the case but didn't know where it was coming from.I cleaned the metal out of it and lubed everything up again and the sound is gone the fan is quieter and doesn't get as hot.
    so if you have anything like that happening and you have tri-cools then you may want to consider replacing them or taking them apart and look for any metal shavings/scraps and while your at it oil it up again.

    not really much on topic but i thought it maybe helpful.

    System Specs:
    -AMD Phenom II X4 965 oc@3.9Ghz * MSI 790FX-GD70 mobo * XFX Radeon 5870/ Sapphire 5870 1Gb * Corsair 1000HX psu * G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 4Gb * Seagate 1.5Tb hdd/ WD 320Gb hdd * LG Blu-ray player * Koolance 340 block * DD radiator * D5 pump * Enermax and Apevia fans-

    Performed Mods:
    Painted internal black and drive brackets/ thumb screws red, cut hole for 24 pin and, sleeved 24 pin only, cut internal top grill for better airflow, sound dampening on the base, cable management, cut front fan grill for airflow, water cooling.

    This is my good friend Manuel's Cosmo S that I built for him. Most of the hardware was recommended by me and this rig come out to be around $3000. As some of you know cable management is a big deal to me and it was a bit hard with this case. I wanted to cut more holes to have a cleaner look, but Manuel wanted to finish it sooner. We built this rig about 3 months ago, so I'm sorry about the dust and I hope the dirty water in the loop doesn't affect your votes :( He was a but careless when these shots were taken. Since then we have cleaned the loop and added nuke to the distilled water. Also another 4 gigs have been added for a total of 8gb Ripjaw ddr3 1600mhz. Let us know what you think? and/or what we could do to improve it! Thank you for voting -t77

    I love it, snapshot. The tubing goes great with the Batmobiles. That was one thing I really regreted about my DD 5870 block, no more snazzy looking stock cooler:( Well done. Hopefully you pal kicked you down some beers for your hard work.
