It will be a couple of days before I can continue with this phase of my C70 build.

$229 - $189 = $40, plus $50 off of the price of the motherboard when you buy an i5 (or an i3, but eff that...) = $90

i just bought 2 of these fans the other day, they are a new model from Cougar and they are nice.

Well, as it stands, I don't really do a whole lot of photo or video editing (aside from playing in Photoshop to make sigs and wallpapers), however with this new build, nothing would be standing in my way except for top-tier software... And those fans look nice, but they seem a little expensive. Are you recommending them as case fans or as heat-sink fans?
post #1533 of 8430
per the manufacturer those fans will work good for heatsinks and as case fans, i bought 2, 1 for exhaust and 1 is mounted inside my case for my 2 GTX 580 graphics cards, but i did install 1 for a friend on his xigmatek dark knight heatsink and it is way quieter then the fan that came with it and his cpu temp dropped 3c so i might get another for my heatsink as it's the same and all my exposed fans i like blue led lights and my hidden fans are Noctuas which i have 2 behind the front cover and 2 on top.

Cool, thanks! +Rep for the advice!

Your rig looks nice. Mine will look pretty similar, I think, aside from the 2nd GPU and the extra drives. Thinking about getting blue sleeved cable extensions as accents to the black and blue theme, too...

Black and blue should look nice. I like the BitFenix alchomy sleeved extensions because the are sleeved all the way to the plug. No ugly heat shrink. If you get the HX 750 you posted I think you can get a kit from them.

I see what you mean about the Alchemy sleeves. They look very, very nice. Not to mention the Corsair's sleeved bundle doesn't include a 24-pin cable.

The AX-series bundle includes the 24-pin. The HX or TX-series bundles do not because they are not modular for the 24-pin and 8-pin. I recently bought the Corsair Sleeved bundle for the AX-series and I assure you they do include the 24-pin. tongue.gif Here is a picture of all the cables laid out, they look amazing!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

They do look very nice. Yes, I know that the HX series is only semi-modular. I guess what I wanted was just an extension for the end that goes into the mobo. And if I went that route, the rest of my cables would need to match (dat OCD rolleyes.gif ). Thanks for the heads-up, though. I could still go with the Corsairs, I'd just need to pick up the AX bundle, leaving me plenty of spare cables for future endeavors tongue.gif
