I'm not picky about memory. It'll be the last thing I buy more than a month from now most likely and I'll probably just get 1600 G-Skills. There's such a tiny performance gain for faster ram it's hardly worth it imho. I'd MUCH rather have 64GB of 1600 G.Skills than 32GB of 2400 Mushkins or Corsair.
yes.... I was same way .... until I looked at current pricing where there is very little price difference anymore.
These are Mushkin Redline but everyone else similar.... with the 1600s at $150 .... just $10 more gets ya 2133 .... $30 more gets ya 2400.
DDR3 1600 - CAS 8 - $153
DDR3 1600 - CAS 8 - $150R
GSkill Tridents are $170 but better timings
DDR3 1866 - CAS 9 - $165
DDR3 1866 - CAS 9 - $160R
GSkill Tridents are $175
DDR3 2133 - CAS 9 - $160
DDR3 2133 - CAS 9 - $165R
GSkill Tridents are $175
DDR3 2400 - CAS 10 - $180
DDR3 2400 - CAS 10R - $190
GSkill Tridents are $175 ... $5 less but Mushkin has slightly better timings
I'm always willing to pay a little more for the Muskies but was surprised when i checked just now that the Mushkins are cheaper at least up thru 2133....At those prices, 2133 was a no brainer and 2400 caused just a minute of hesitation

I have seen this in some game reviews before such as STALKER .... but where it really has an impact is on minimum frame rates which almost everybody never bothers to look at.

I think mylar would be great for application TO the window itself, but I'm thinking more along the lines of a solid "plaque" mounted where the Phanteks logo is now. Something along the lines of this -> http://www.art.com/photostoart/acrylic_photo_printing
. I just need to find a service that offers custom sizes and make sure the image itself will be translucent to let light through from behind.
Thanks for the tip, though - I'll think about the pulsing led idea.
I understood you to mean that you thought the photo applied to the acrylic wouldn't be translucent and wouldn't let the light thru.....so where I was going was..... print on mylar which is translucent and then apply that to the acrylic. I'm close enuff on Long Island (formerly Greenpoint Brooklyn) .... pop out, we'll draw it up, print up cupla copies and you're golden....costs nuthin besides the gas
Mylar has a smoked look so should diffuse the light well.Edited by JackNaylorPE - 10/25/13 at 10:46am
