Such a vehement reaction, charlie! You actually got a good laugh out of me with that.
I see no one else likes the idea of a 400mm side fan here, haha. Really, the case doesn't look that bad. 690 it is. I'll show buddy #1 a couple pictures of it tomorrow or something, and see what he thinks. Buddy #2 specifically chose the HAF, so there's no changing that.
I'm still intrigued by the Aerocool case, though. Here I was, wanting to experiment with other brands of cases, and you guys shoot me down, haha. Oh well.
Which case did you mean to change the heatsink for? I realize there is a huge fanbase for the TRUE here. . . (I know
650W it is for buddy #1, then.
Rig #1 v.2:
CoolerMaster 690 $ 80.00
GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366
Core i7 920
Thermalright TRUE $ 75.00
IC "7 carat"diamond, 1.5g
GTX 285 SC
Caviar Black, 640GB
X223Wbd 22" 1680x1050
UltraX Silver/Black, Wired
Approx. total: $1,6
All changes are bolded. Saves about $5 (
). I do agree with the case choice, but I don't believe that buddy #1 really needs the TRUE, to say the least... but that doesn't mean he
have it. He wanted that mouse, so I left it the same.
How's it lookin' from your viewpoint?
If it ain't rocket powered, it ain't worth it.
