Single dad here. Son is grown and out of the house, so it's time for dad to play!

If and when the wife asks I tell her "Not much dear, didn't cost much at all" biggrin.gif

I have learnt wisely, transfer money to Paypal, she can't monitor that.

I used aerocool b4 in prev air builds never had issues. I just needed to know diff between those two brands thats all. And i didn't say u mentioned lamptron, i said "i know everyone here loves lamptrom fc touch"
And THEN AND ONLY THEN i cracked a joke on ur response shooting down both links i posted. Lets just b real here

His name isn't "B Real" or "B Supportive"... It's "B Negative"... Just sayin' tongue.gif (But he does know his stuff).

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. wink.gif

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!

Thanks - T

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... biggrin.gif

I have 4 blown Scythe controllers sitting in my spares bin and the Aerocool has poor control of fans.
I base my comments on actually using these products.

At what point did i even mention Lamptron?

Surely there is a GPU pissing contest thread for you to infest?


Wow....................

Love lamptrons but they're getting harder to find. Avoid rip-off G-Vanns. I've had bad luck w/ NZXT controllers but this last "Mix 2" is performing well. Looks like they fixed the first craptastic one. Mesh is a crapshoot too. Make sure you have a good return policy from the store. I've had Scythe Kaze but they're weak and mine over heated. Tried the Akaza, looks like a rebrand from something, and that was crap too.

I bought my Mix 2 from newegg so I had the security of a decent return policy. So far its working out great. You can tell they really went all out (ie insulating the caps) on this one. I like that you can change the led colors. Its 30w per six channels so that's middle of the road. Not like the v1 50w per channel but this one works. I do miss my old Fan-Atics w/ a beefy 60w per five channels but only two mode (12v/7v).
