Yeah, I love the H100 from the reviews I've been seeing but Intel has already provided the cooling solution as part of the prize. The retail value isn't actually accurate, but that's what they're saying its worth to the IRS when they deduct it from their taxes because that's what it was when it was originally released.

Nothing wrong with the intel solution, so even though we all know you're sticking with it, don't worry about the comments that say "product B is better."

Also, looks like newegg prices aren't in line with the prices I've been seeing on other e-tailer sites for HDDs, so ignore my comment about HDDs other than the suggestion to look into the 3TB drives as some of those have some very very good reviews.
