    Buy the cheapest crap that fits your fittings and holds water. Home Depot generic crap is my choice.

    Yea I've been on the search to find pics of a HAF X case with all the panels taken off so see how similar the frame is to a 932. I've also been contemplating on replacing the mb tray, i/o shield, and top psu location to make room for a 10 PCI slot + i/o shield back plate.

    I like my 932 just think it would be better with a 10 slot PCI back plate since there is a lot of unneeded room at the top.

    Finally I decided to disassemble the entire machine for cleaning. The fins of the heatsink had dust balls stuck to it. :eek:
    Now I understand why the CPU was so hot when working under full load and the temperature dropped from 73 to 67ºC :cool:

    Cleaning out dust can definitely help drop temps significantly. I should probably dust my H50 rad eventually

    I know it doesn't make much sense to have a fast storage drive, but I wanted something that wasn't going to fail anytime soon and in my experience the WD Black drives are damn reliable.

    Awesome drive.

    However my personal experience with Western Digital has been the exact opposite, the last 5 I have bought have all died within 3 months, and the RMA's took 2 months! So I have sworn off Western Digital and I will only ever buy Seagate.

    It's going to replace my second 640GB Black in the computer for downloads/storage. That frees up said smaller drive, so I may sell it to help recoup the cost of this new one or put the two 640's back into RAID.

    My GF's PC is a little smashed ATM since the bottom of the box gave in while I was hoisting it up the stairs... As far as I can tell only the CPU cooler, case and diskette drive are broken though, the curves on her NZXT Lexa Blackline S absorbed alot of the shock I guess.
