*sigh* I remember when people love my cpu for its overclocking power...

Q6600 was like the i7 920 of its time, which is like the i5 2500k of today. Bang/buck overclocking chips of their generations.

Your post made it blush and show a tear or two biggrin.gif

Tbh, at that point, your rig has obviously had a full and worthwhile life, you could consider selling your rig either as parts or as a whole to fund your new rig.

I'd also like to go all out on the next build, probably make use of my favourite etailers finance option to buy now pay in 6/12 months. I want the TJ07 but its sort of had its time now (I feel that more so because of the replacement TJ11 or whatever being out...£400 though) or the Corsair 800D

Yeah I'd probably buy the whole new rig, but keep this one until its built so I can spend more time cable tidying, case modding and the like

Everyone here knows that when you go from an old OEM pc to a new build, you shove everything in that case as soon as you can tongue.gif

I've got a corsair 800D and unless you really want the window and hotswap bays don't bother, go with the 700D which is just as good and saves you a pretty penny

Tbh the only reason I would consider that case is the size. I'm one of those guys that, although I dont have more than 5 hard drives and one gpu (at the moment) I like having all that extra elbow room.

The case I have now I love the look of, but inside its hard to cable manage (no motherboard room behind the tray) lame airflow ( I cant cut a blowhole in the bottom due to too many cables, and the side would kill the look

I loved the TJ07 an epic amount. But the replacement is well overpriced, looks stupid from behind and they didnt keep the sleek look all the way around the case

Is the 700D the same height as the 800D? I don't mind the window, I can easily have one cut (just got one cut for a fiver)

Oh I love my corsiar obsidian, I would recommend everyone to get it, what i'm saying is the 700d would be beter I think.

Yes, they are exactly the same size, just no window, no hotswap bays. The same great reliable build quality and epic cable management as its "bigger brother"

Oh. Right. *edits shopping list* I wonder if the 800D panel fits the 700D? I like the window shape tongue.gif

Well you could probably get an aftermarket side panel made up.

From what I heard the 800d side panel does fit on the 700d.I had to make sure because I am getting the 700d with a side panel.Don't really need the hot swap bays and it looks much cleaner.

This is half the problem, I went with the 800D and whilst I love it completely, I can't get my SSD to work in the hot swap bay for love nor money.

If its the same size surely it should fit :s maybe not though, but that's no matter

I think I'll go with the 700D then smile.gif Will wait for ivy bridge though, if its going to be the next biggest processor (intel wise)
