I'm actually in the process of working with someone to build a mini-ITX rig with an i3-3220 because that fits in his budget with a decent GPU. I'm not jipping him on anything, just that to work in his budget and still have a decent GPU, his option is a i3.
Don't overlook an i3 just because it's a dual-core. That's still plenty for gaming, and mind you even the i3-560 that I had was more powerful than the previous Core 2 Quads.

Please stop lying to yourself.

i agree with tman because most modern games take advantage of more then 2 cores and for a little more money you get alot more performance

Because I want it to look awesome and still have very low temperatures.

This may be true, but my i3-2120 gets the same amount of FPS as a 3770k with my 7850 on BF3. Not really a problem since an i3 2120 doesn' even bottleneck two (since its still faster for games then a 965BE) 7850s (could still get away with two 7950's even, not 7870 or 7970 though) so I really don't HAVE to upgrade my proccessor, its just that I want to smile.gif (since the i3-2120 (dual cores in general, no matter how good for gaming) is not very good for the video editing / rendering I do constantly ) but yeah =/

post #26985 of 28613
I guess your questions isn't clear enough. Are you asking how thick the cables themselves are, or the metal pins inside the connector? I can tell you the metal pins are probably about 1/8". The cables themselves could be slightly thinner.

Just which ever is going to be larger. I'm sure some cables going into the pins are about the exact same size as the pin in some psu's but slightly smaller than the pin in other psu's. So 1/8" sleeving should work if I'm going to individually sleeve my psu? Also, would that mean I need to get the next size up in heatshrink to make sure it goes around the sleeving? Or is the 1/8" the inside diameter and the sleeving would still be able to fit inside the heatshrink?

I ordered one of these cases (Storm Scout) Friday to match up with my G.Skill Sniper Black & Red ram and Crosshair V which is also on the way. My question is would the CM V6 (red led fan) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103088 be a good solution for cooling or would I be better off getting something else? I know it should look good but looks aren't everything. rolleyes.gif But at $17.99 I figured I should atleast think about it biggrin.gif
