I can't believe i'm building an intel after how bad I use to talk about them. But here we go. All the parts are already ordered so hopefully I didn't make any mistakes. My goal here is to build a overclock system that is quiet as possible without giving up on overclocking speeds.<br><br>
Why do I want to overclock? I have no real reason. I just want to.<br><br>

Oh and I kind of didn't know the G80 was coming out so soon. So I ended up buying a 7900GTO evga <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"> .<br><br>
As you can see I don't have a case or powersupply on there. I kept debating on what case I should buy. I at first wanted something I could carry around. But then I saw people saying that the Zalman 9500 was to heavy to move. So I'm just going to use my old raidmax case. Also the 600 watt power supply is a little to big for my current rig so I plan to use it for the one I'm building.<br><br>
I've downloaded some overclocking guides as well as various guides on how to install the heatsink and thermal paste. Everything should arrive by Tuesday. Right now I'm just reading around a lot.<br><br>
Oh yea, and the rig in my specs. I'm not really going to be using it anymore. Does anyone know around how much it will sell for if I put it into a different case and add a decent psu? I thought it might get more money if I upgrading the cpu before selling it.<br><br>
I also might sell the 7900GTO when G80 is released. I've been told the step up program might charge me say 700 when everyone else only has theirs for 600.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"> SO I'm not without my mistakes. But I suppose that is to be expected.

WOW nice build. Btw if you step up to a G80 it should cost you less then what we would have to pay.

It was love at first site. Then I saw the price tag of over 200+. The price on ebay though was only 150. Anyone know where the people on ebay are getting these from?

Maybe consider a different cooler. The CNPS9500 is awesome, but the tower coolers have a greater surface area and the larger ones can accomodate a 120mm fan.<br />

I'm thinking of just using my raidmax case for now. The supply of cases seems endless and the price of anything I liked a lot was at least 150 : (. <br />
<br />
<br />

<br />
The 700 more I said I was planning on spending was to update things throughout the build. Aka use the step up program for the G80. Buying a different cooler if that heatsink for whatever ever the reason doesn't work out.<br />
<br />
Edit: <a href="http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2210224&cp" target="_blank">http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...tId=2210224&cp</a> Or I could use something like this until I get more money for something else. My current raidmax might have heating problems with the front intake fan not working. The LCD light works but the fan doesn't. I've also noticed that Raidmax decided not to make it easy to change out the front intake fan.

i would never upgrade cases that's entirley stupid i believe. If u must go with the first choice. and i don't want u to get the ARMOR cause every one has it. Get something diffrent like a Lian Li case. Those are awesome.

so go buy one with a window. So what if they cost to much the are dead sexy. Lol. They are considered to be the best manufacture of cases that's y they are so expensive they are constructed very well matter a fact much better than the ARMOR that u chose. But yes u do pay a premium.
