That memory cooler will fit your RAM, it will clip onto the memory slots. It is worth getting if you are raising your memory voltages and it will mean you don't really have to worry about toasty memory! As for actual temp difference i don't think many people will know the answer to that one as not many have temp probes on their memory. It appears it's noisy at full speed but if you turn it down a bit it isn't too bad http://www.driverheaven.net/showthread.php?t=125166

From reading a review of the armour it seems that all fan slots come filled except the 80mm slot on the top. http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-280-6.htm so i don't think there would be anywhere good to put another 120mm fan, unless you could fit it to the front to create a second front intake, but i don't know if thats possible. I'd say just get the case, have a play and see where you could fit extra fans, then buy the extra fans.
The Armor's top fan blowhole is 90mm, first of all, and comes with a fan. And you can fit up to 3 120mm fans in the front of the Armor.

dont bother with a VF-900, the stock cooler is VERY good, i've seen people put VF-900's on and got the same temps, the only way to go lower is to remove the IHS (which is soldered on!) or get some good water

Well, you'll want to get 1 or 2 extra 120mm fans for the front then that'll give you brilliant airflow. The Antec Tricool fans are quite good although there are probably better ones out there.

when will people learn, that 4 cores is better than 2? lol.

Anyways, I'd go for the Q6600...

Think about it...you're gonna wanna upgrade anyways, right? Why not save yourself the cost of the e6600 and trying to sell it or something...and just get the Q6600 straight away. Wait 2 weeks man...it'll be worth it.

Also, are you sure the vf900CU will fit the 8800GTX? It's got a small base, and I believe the GTX has a huge core/IHS.

In games, which i think is what this system is for, 2 cores running at a higher speed are faster than 4 cores running slower. Games at the moment are single threaded because the processes within the game are serial, it's very hard to process them in parallel as one thing has to be finished to determine what will happen next.

Mhill, its not native quad core.

And Bisley_bob your correct.

4 cores isnt better than 2 when #1 the dual core will overclock better, #2 he has a display that wont even allow the power of the E6600 or the 8800GTX to be pushed.

Geta E6600, and pick yourself up a better monitor with the money saved + a little extra, or else its pointless to get a 8800.

so they are faster ...for now....until software 'learns' to utilize multiple cores. I dont know about that...seems like by the time the software is capable of running multiple cores effectively, there will be 8-12+core CPU's available...then your Q4 is looking rather 'dull'.

*but you could always have it now just to, have it I suppose.
post #29 of 36
nah, just get the 6600. not the Q lol, the e6600. the quad core will not be utilized. i guarantee it. an e6600 at 3.5 (attainable of good air cooling) will perform like a 4.6GHz DUAL core AMD...if you are not used to AMD speeds, then it will perform as fast as a 7GHz Pentium D 9xx.
do you need more? at a point where the cores arent EVEN BEING USED!!! more wont increase performance. and i have no PROOF that the Q6600 is native quad core. it may just be dual dual cores like the QX
