I would go with the better cooling and less flashy exterior

I'd pick the centurion 5 with the zip tied 120mm fans

I go for cooling over looks unless the case is really ugly. The 5 or 534 I think are better enough coolers that you'd be better off with one of them. They are also $20 cheaper than the ammo. But, if you really like the ammo, it should work great too.

Well lets say I did get the ammo. It wouldnt be hard to drill a extra fan in there if I had to right?

we are talking like less then 1% slower
though that was when using just one cpu and not both of them.


and how much is the baby c2d? like 150 or something isn't it? and that should more then satisfy some needs thtere

Everest. not sure how accurate it was or exactly which test it was but I can verify all that when I get home if you like as right now I'm at work.
taht way I could also verify the numbers as well.

Isn't that for memory benchmarks only?

In Everest home the only options I have are for read, write, and latency

if you get the ultimate edition you can do some other CPU benchmarks as well. or are you running the trial version of the software? if you like when I get home I can post some screen shots.
