Default Re: I was thinking about getting this

i recommend the sunbeam core contact cooler of the xigmatek rifle. I have experience with the core contact and it lowered my temp by 40 degrees under load.

i have a recertified mobo from a old gateway from about 5 years ago. my 650i should be coming soon lol

depends on the looks i guess

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835207004

this comes with free shipping and 10 dollar mail in rebate and some AWESOME thermal compound that is comparable to mx-2 it is tx-2 lol

they perform about the same.

if you have the money get the dark knight

ya i think ill get the dark knight, looks very sexy, and you know i like things that look sexy lol, but i also like performance. I was going to get the 780i board but my friend kinda changed my mind and told me to go with the 790i Ultra because ddr3 will be mainstream soon so that board should have really nice overclocking potential

i think in like 1 year man cause all new boards that are socket 1366 take only DDR3 i believe. I dont know though, I want to give my current mobo to my dad with the ram so i would end up buying DDR2 ram anyways, mind aswell just go with the 790i and get DDR3.

Definitely mod that case out. I have a beige case which I'm going to mod to fit 2 turbine fans in the front, with 4 120mm on the side panel and 2 120mm on top. I'm going to paint it Ferrari red with a black accent. I'll post a video on it tomorrow before I start.

The fans might be loud and I don't personally like the looks but it looks sturdy and for 80 bucks, I would jump for it considering it's 40 bucks off.
