Speaking of pretty I was going to with Green LED fans in my Coolermaster CM690 but since the Coolermaster 120mm fans are quieter and more than half the price of the Antec TriCool 120mm Green LED fans, I decided to get 5 of the Coolermaster Blue LED 120mm case fans to go with the one Coolmaster includes in the case.

So since I'm going blue and I'm getting a 5000+ Black Edition CPU, I am dubbing this build as Black Ice

Nope I didn't order the video card yet. That's next week.

I was wondering if I should buy the Sapphire 3870 card, but not sure yet. Still have to buy a 19" or 20" LCD yet to.
Thinking of selling some of my aviation things to make some extra cash, since I do not need them anymore.
