    What motherboard to get??? fans for q6600 and 8800gts 320mb??

    sorry i havent replied.. internet is out and i'm on someone's wireless right now on my laptop.. lol. as for the case, if you arn't gonna stuff it with large things like dual 8800's and 6 hard drives, then i'd say the antec 900. i like the cooler master and all, but i think the 900 has far better...

    What motherboard to get??? fans for q6600 and 8800gts 320mb??

    I like what you have picked out, as a previous 900 owner/ user, I can say that you do get superior cooling for air.. I overclocked the crap out of my amd x2 4600+ and stayed around 30idle with zalman cnps 9700 and as5. as for the ram.. check out the g skill micron d9 chip stuff.. guaranteed to...

    [FS]AMD 4000+, MB, Video Cards, Ram

    i think even $60 shipped for the cpu is reasonsonable. as for the gfx cards, I'd say sell both for $400, or 225 each shipped. and I'd say 80 for 2gb of corsair xms matched pro's is veryyyyyyyyy reasonable considering it used to run over $400 for them. :)

    What cooler?!?

    yea i was thinking the same thing, i havent really seen anything better than the cnps 9700 other than water and phase.. just coolers equal to it. although i do like the thermalright ultra 128..

    Cooler Master RC-690

    yea heat usually does rise, but in this case.. you can turn the psu upside down and have a fan below it blowing into the psu, then the psu blowing out the back. in other words, your power supply would be the normal way as if were on top fan facing down. theres also another fan on the bottom...

    What cooler?!?

    hey thanks.. i was looking at the ac freezer 64's, but wasnt sure if they would cool better than my zalman? i'm gonna stay away from water for now though.. so its either a zalman, or something with better cooling capability? in the ac64 better or equal? depend?

    What cooler?!?

    What cooler?!?

    yea i noticed... i kinda like that design though.. but the heatpipes on the crosshair wouldn't work correctly being upside down? i never thought it mattered..? :\ I'm kinda deadlocked between a lian li v1200 and the cooler master rc 690 and the cooler master cosmos... :(

    What cooler?!?

    Cooler Master RC-690

    What cooler?!?

    I do OC.. I have my current 4600+ from 2.4 to 3.0Ghz on the Zalman 9700 and running a 29 degrees celcius on idle @ 1.5V... not too shabby eh? lol. I also didn't use the fan controller, I plugged it into the board.. So it's more accurate at what it needs for cooling. I'm just not sure if there is...

    What cooler?!?

    yea i think i'll stay away from water right now.. maybe i'll grab one of those ocz phase change systems when they release and drop price a little. as for the time being what do you think? should i stick with my cnps 9700 or get something "better"?

    What cooler?!?

    Ok so I've decided to upgrade finally! Should I grab a 5600+ since I hear they have even deviders that will make full use of ddr2-800, plus they use 2x 1MB cache to move from my 4600+? Also, should I move to the EPP/SLI Corsair thats 4-4-4-12 or should I stick with my Corsair 5-5-5-15 stuff...
