im actually less crabby now,
the quality of the case was much less than i expected for silverstone, but it was what i expected for a $220 specialty case that included a PSU. the PSU connecters and cable length was not thought out (PCIE power connectors could have been right angled maybe? some leads excessively long
The top fan im not a fan of *boom tish*, so im thinking of ditching it and just having the top nocturna fan on. Feels quite cheap anyway, makes wierd noises at low RPM.
Only thing is that if i use the nocturna it wont be a direct sort of feed anymore, unless i mount the nocturna to the top of the case then i lose the filter
Would you guys say that having just the cpu mounted HSF would be enough to get airflow for the VRM and ram all that?
Any other tips to get the heatspreaders off? i busted one stick.. other option is to just cut the crummy heatspreaders with a dremel, but i wouldnt trust my lovely hands with something that dainty.
or i could just use non XMP ram (is ddr3 as easy to push as the new chips are?) if i can get the regular stuff and run the XMP timings that would be sweet!
