And it's not just my computer, but having to connect in my modem and router along my my mother's machine and all kinds of coaxial. It just sucks :/ I was wanting to get some hooks to stick up under the lip on the back of my desk to run my monitor, mouse, keyboard, and speaker cables through so you wouldn't even be able to see them when you walk in the room.

A good and easy fan for a North Bridge is an Antec Spot-Cool. Just screw it in to the rear exhaust fan hole and position it over the heatsink. :toast:
Exactly what I have here ;)

A question from me.
I am torn between 3 PSUs here:
1.) PC P&C Silencer QUad Blue/Black for $110
2.) Corsair TX750W for $110
3.) Corsair TX850W for $123

Which one should I get?

Go for the HX unit, much better for cable management, higher resale value.

The HX is more efficient with having only 1 rail and its modular.

Right, because when your dealing with multi rails, your not going to be getting the "full" spec on the psu. Meaning, if your 1st is 16 and 2nd is 16, your not going to have 32 on one.. you may get 26-28amps.. Not worth the headache of trying to work with! IMHO.

But, with ya on the choice. and the fact after modular! God it's so much nicer to have modular over the other.. Not cheaper, but better stuff!
