With Xmas slowly closing in my family is asking me what I want for Xmas. Rather then buy all the upgrades myself I think i'm going to have them buy some of them for me for Xmas.
Basically I just need some opinions on a few different items.
First off I want to get a new full tower case. First build I went for looks and really didn't look at space issue's. Since I know quite a bit more then before I've narrowed it down to 2 cases.
Cooler Master Stacker 830 KKN2-GP
Cooler Master Cosmos
I'm leaning towards the Stacker just because its proven. I know the Cosmos was Maximum PC's case choice of the year but it seems the stacker should perform better air cooling wise. If I go with the stacker I plain on picking up the following.
Cooler Master Cross Flow Fan
As for the Heat sink fan i'm a bit torn between reviews. Not sure if I want to gamble or not on this. I was thinking of the following 2.
Evercool Ultra X
This leads me to a question. I've got that 630watt PSU currently do you think that will have enough power to power most likely 2 HSF fans if I get the IFX-14 plus 6, 120mm case fans and 2 80mm chipset fans + whats in my sig?
Next up chipset cooling I was looking at the following.
For the northbridge the Thermalright HR-05 SLI/IFX
And for the southbridge the Evercool EC-VC
If you think theres something better out there for the 680I chipset hook me up with some links.
Those are the main upgrades I'll have them get for me. I plain on picking up a A1 Revision 680I and Q6600 myself after I get that stuff and just swapping my G.Skill into that build then convert my current build into a media center.
Any cooling or case changes you think would be better?
