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?
Uhh you purchasing from Newegg right? I remember seeing in the Hot Deals section at AnandTech, damn there were lots of hot deals. I think there were GTX260 going for around $150AR, and it was free shipping.
Imo, get the OCZ Vendetta 2. I'm the HDT guy since it's better bang for buck than the TRUE.
Btw, keep up the work over at Iraq! I wish you all the best of luck!
