Why in the world do you need a 1200watt PSU? My 1000w is even overkill, I just got a great deal on it from a friend.

Hello and Good Morning,

I am looking at a couple of cpu coolers. The first is an A70 from Corsair, the second is a SpinQ from Thermaltake, third is a V6GT from Cooler Master, and finally the Zalman CNP S9900 Max. I have just seen the latter one today online and am very interested in it. Has anyone used these four coolers before? If so, which out of the four do you think works best in our HAF 932 cases?


Also, while I am posting a question... I currently have two 120mm Cooler Master LED fans wire tied to my hard drive cage to pull air from the hard drives and push it out into the main case area. I have not had a chance to measure this, but is it easy to fit a stack of four fans in there strait to the ceiling of the case?

Thanks so much,
James.

I have a 120mm fan installed where I have extra room in the optical drive bays. It seems to fit just fine I ghetto rigged a piece of cardboard to direct the flow of air more into the case. But as far as HDD bays, I am at a loss

Looking at that picture, my two fans start at the bottom of the hard drive cage inside and are wire tied to it. The top of the second fan goes about 4mm past the cage where the gap is at the 5.25 bays. Do you know what the exact height is of the case inside from bottom to top?

by the way.. why you don't you guys consider adding a 140mm fan instead of a 120mm? I manage to do that using 3 1/2 slots on a HAF-X

I guess if it fits. See my fans are in the main compartment of the case and not inside the bays. I am just trying to figure out if I can fit four 120's on top of each other and still fit to the top. My servers here at work have four fans that way but are only 92mm and use supermicro towers instead. So I want to try and duplicate that at home in my HAF.

It is highly possible to do as I have seen it done before.

Hey All,

I am thinking of upgrading my video card so that I can have better HD video on my PC. (I usually transcode everything over to my ps3 to watch on 50" HDTV) But now I am looking at a LED monitor and would like to have better video on my pc as well. I do not want to spend over $100 and would rather spend around $50 to $60. I was looking at the EGVA 01 G-P3-1450-TR GeForce GTS 450 1024mb card from tiger direct for $99.99 but am open to suggestions. I will only use Nvidia in my systems, I have been burned by ATI one too many times. So any ideas? I would also like it to have the option of dual dvi support if possible for future expansion of multiple screens (Just not enough room right now).

Also, I only have a 600w PSU; so it can't be something to hurt the overall performance of the PC either.

Thanks.

I need a 1200w PSU because I have Champagne dreams on a Natural Ice beer budget and eventually want to have 3 eVGA GTX 580 SC's and a Physx card in my computer and to do that I need the 1200w PSU or larger. I am just looking to the future on this one. I want to make sure that when I put my power supply in there that I have more than enough power for what I have and what I will have in the future. My broken 1000w PSU just isn't going to cut it anymore.

@yojimboryuu I found This GTX 450 at Newegg for about $110 and it has a 888 MHz OC on the Core. I don't think that you will find a lifetime warranty version of a 450 (I don't think that there even is one) for $100 but this seems to be a good card to me and Galaxy is a pretty good GPU manufacturer. Hope that this helps but make sure that you look many different places besides just Tiger Direct and Newegg because you would be surprised what you can find. Hell I would even go and check the for sale threads on here because people are always selling GPU's for cheap.
