The main reason why I don't want to pay too much is because of that Thermaltake Tide Water VGA water cooling unit I wanna get instead of the usual VF900CU everybody has, plus I still need to get a conductive ink pen which was outta stock when I bought the multimeter at Radioshack today. I guess I'll barely have anything left for October except for performance!!
Oh right........I forgot the fan controller for that Vantec Tornado.
dang man, well I dono what to tell ya.. I'm on a tight budget too right now but for diffrent reasons like bills. I can think of 5 things i want for my one pc, plus 3 games I want to get.
Anyways they just about all have the same preformance, I mean they are all so small, the surface area are all close to about the same. The more surface area the sink has the better its gona work for you. I'll see if i can find anything cheap..
EDIT: Ok I looked at frozen cpu and they have the microcool PPL chipsinks but they are 2 bucks each
Here they are at preformance-pcs for 1.49 per sink
Same microcool chipsinks but for 1.25 but I think you "might" have to buy in packs of 10
Some Koolance sinks 8 for 4 bucks.. btw: SVC is the bomb.
And if you want to spend a little more for the best equipment for the job get some Swiftech Forged copper ramsinks.
Preformance-pcs is running then 15% off at 17 bucks for 8 sinks..
Personally I would buy the swiftechs. and with your fan you got down by your card it would boost the performance, but its up to you how much its worth.
