Hi All,

I was not planing to make that upgrade, at least for now, but when my UD7 died, i made my mind and start the new upgrade..

As you can see in the below pictures, this is my old Gigabyte 3d Mercury. This case with the MODS i made serve me as good as it should be for about 2 years.. So its the time for replacing it..

I am focusing at the Cooler master HAF X, for the good air and lots of space.

My main upgrade will be (From - To):

- 950 cpu - 2600k (360 Rad with Rasa Block)
- X58A UD7 - 1155 UD7
- 3d Mercury Case - HAF X
- SLI 285 - SLI (580 OR 570) soon (No watercooling)

** There will be an extra stuff after doing this upgrade (240 Rad + Pump + reservoir) I think i cant use them any more.. OR should i add this rad also to the 360 Rad together.. ???

My main concern is Should i fix the 360 rad inside or should i go the same of my old way (Outside the case)?

I am planning to keep one of my 285 as Physx with the main 580 GPUs.

Also i know that cable management is SUCK, but i will arrange ever thing in the new case..

Do you think that the aluminium reservoir which i have good or should i change it also..


I like always to share with you guys before i step any further step without you appreciate advices..


Thank you

I vote Corsair 800d. You seem like you don't switch cases a lot. Might as well get the big one and have fun with that. Wayy more room to move around and make mods if you feel like it.

If you plan on running your graphics cards on air, I'd go with the HAF X. If you want to watercool them, go with the 800D.

Go with the HAF X case, because It's High Air Flow, so Air cooling would be a HAF X decision. And, by the way - Your computer pics of the inside scare me so badly. Could use a bit of Cable management? xD

Oh, I've got a Quick Q Guys - I have a Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 3.1Ghz, 2GB Of RAM, And a GTS 250 512MB. I honestly Think It's my graphics that is causing my FPS Issue in BFBC2, So I'm looking for an Upgrade. I heard a GTS 450 1GB Does amazing things with this processor. And I heard a GTX 295, or GTX 280 Is a really good way to go, but My budget is extremely low. Could you recommend me a Card that can Play BFBC2 At good setting with good FPS, Or just recommend the BEST Card that doesn't produce a bottleneck in this processor?

Sure and i like it, but many guys said that for GPU Air cooling the HAF X will be better and i am not planning to water cool my GPU, i already have one of my 285 under watercooling, and cant find that much diffrent between it and between the other one which is under air cooling..
