I've had good luck with Lamptron - better than many it seems but then I don't use the touch... B Neg basically answered you with that pic of a Aquaero and waterblock. Although that's not even remotely in the same budget as any of the controllers you mentioned. I'd personally have to agree with the statement that they are both crap... but the Aerocool is a level or two below
crap IMO... I'd definitely shy away from their products unless you basically just want something 'pretty' in your drive bay without much usefulness.

I think it's reasonably implied based on the first part of the post... but that's just my take on it. How's the finger by the way?

By the same token, for most people on here, having anything other than an i3 and 2GB of RAM is unnecessary - it's not medical equipment keeping us alive... although some days it feels almost like it.

When I want to build or buy a new bike, or another gun or something, I tell her what I'm going to do, and she is usually between nonchalant to dismissive about it, unless I disclose that it will be a ton of money...
If she ever needs anything; clicky clicky in the bank, she gets the cash she needs and can move about and do what she likes...
So I guess my scenario is rare and somewhat unique, but not unheard of!

This. My wife hasn't worked in years, we have no kids (nor do we want any), and she actually handles all the finances - the paying bills
part. I was actually putting off my rig until I paid off the rest of my mortgage, but she convinced me to do it sooner rather than later - and recommended I bump up my budget by a couple grand while I was at it. She's a little less enthusiastic with my projected budget for my home theater build-out... but she hasn't yelled yet so I'm proceeding with caution...
