Default New case w/Mod parts. Awesome!

Due to resent events, those being people flaking out when I try to sell them things, I've decied, "Screw it, I don't need PCI-E right now or anything new." So with my $120 I'm deciding to get a new case, and a whole lot of cooling goodies to go along with it. Here's what I have so far...

Case:

I've been recommending those exhaust blowers for a long time in this forum. It's great stuff. I've got one in my case. I'm surprised few people know about it. It's a builder's dream to have those installed. We need to do some mass advertisement on the blowers so more people will take notice of them. They help with overall PC cooling.

Looks like you're going all out cooling there. I have that exact same HD cooler too on my previous build. Definitely worth the money and a big difference in hardr drive temp. I don't have one now in mu current system because I have 2 x80mm fans blowing from the front of the case right across my hard drive. So getting that would be kind of useless for me at this point. I've never seen that video card cooler before. You'll have to let us know how it works and how effective it is as far as temperature goes.

The memory heatsinks are useless. They do nothing. A magazine (Custom PC) actually tested the difference with them on and off, and got the same temperature.

The Memory Heatsinks are more for looks then anything.

But yes, the blower thing is awesome. I've been wanting one for awhile because they suck hot air out like crazy. Which helps overall PC temperatures go down. And the VGA cooler that I'm getting is really sweet looking. It's got a massive heatsink pratically wrapped around the entire thing, and then has 3 fans blowing down on it. I'm positive that this thing will keep a video card cooler then a Zalman would.

But yes, I want to make my computer an official badass! Next time I go to the LAN parties, everyone will be wanting to see what I got. Plus with all the cooling in there, I should be able to overclock without any problems!

I decided not to get a computer case because my parents got me one for Christmas so it's all good!
