My preference would be the AP122's or the Cougar's

I was talking about red LED fans. since OP specifically listed a "red-LED" fan; i assume he probably wants to maintain that same color scheme.

But the Cougars are good fans; i have four of them and i think theyre pretty quiet. I used to have all sickleflow fans + 2 stock corsair fans in push/pull; had a disappointing experience with them especially with noise and then upgraded to Cougar HDB fans to cool my GPU radiators and Gelid HDB fans to cool my CPU radiator and my case is super quiet even at load.

Are all the other red LED fans there just priced really high? Like so high its unfeasible to have it in your budget ?

Ahh righto. Yeah if you're going with Umart considering phoning ahead with your final parts list and asking them to confirm the items you want are actually in stock; they have a annoying tendency to list items as being in stock when they actually have to order them in (very annoying haha)

Ahhh sorry, I totally overlooked that part. Mmm prices are inflated all round, but I haven't noticed any particular parts or variations of parts being higher priced than others - except for graphics cards mad.gif

Any reason why you prefer couriers over Auspost? I've found the couriers they use to be less reliable than the auspost services.

*personal experience of course.

In any case, PCCG isn't exactly a 'bad' option anyway; sometimes the extra price you pay is worth it for the better customer service in the long run smile.gif

I can't use auspost because I have a case included in my order



Though you are right about the customer service at PCCG

save yourself some money you probably don't need that extra fan, and as for the ram it might be wise to go to fill only 1 slot with an 8gb that way if you want to upgrade later you can go directly to 16 without populating all your slots. this stuff looks good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148655 same frequency lower voltage (probably) and tighter timings, so much cheeper it makes 2 sticks look affordable if you dump the fan. h80i is a great cooler i have one in my FT03 like it a lot. before you buy it though you should check out Noctua NH-D14 if you dont plan on going for a crazy overclock (which haswell docent seem to be good for anyways) an air cooler might be more reliable and very competitive as far as how effective it is at cooling.
