Screw the case, this is the least of your concerns, your budget doesn't really let you pick, get the cheapest you can and cut holes in it for fans.
No, no it doesn't. Low end watercooling will allow for a 4.2Ghz OC on a 920/30 and still keep you under 65. This won't do that. Hell an H50 won't let you go past 4Ghz and that's miles better than this. The CM 212 is still the best for your budget.
Don't bother, hardly any games utilise 4 cores let alone 6.
DO you really want our help, The memory is crap. It's not about CAS or speed, it's about the quality of the memory.
In short, all you've done is basically tell us we are wrong when it is infact you that are wrong. You've asked for advice and basically given us the finger. Take the advice we provide, act on it and you'll be happier in the long run.
I have far from given you the finger, by no means did i say in any way that your choices we crap, i merely gave a counter point- i do -not- deserve to be flamed for it, I also don't need to be treated like a child which you seem to be portraying; advice is given to be considered
not to be taken blindly so i can end up with a wonky computer. If you're going to be rude then leave the thread and quit wasting your time, which you so obviously seem to see this as.
Also, the case is
quite a concern, as I'm using an air cooling setup. 20 bucks more for CM and proper air dynamics is not a hefty price to pay. Shoot, i would take a beige POS case if the PSU was on the bottom and it had proper room, but they don't sell those.
As for the air vs. water cooling, my info is outdated- it was from reviews quite a while ago and i apologize for that.

I have a billion optical drives =] no worries. I'm thinking of sticking with it but the lack of L3 has made me wobbly. Im currently trying to shove an X6 into the 600 price range with the same quality using more combo =] I'll post the results. I am getting somewhere =D
the 500 has indeed be switched to a TB so thanks for the suggestion =DEdited by Reista - 1/23/11 at 12:18am
