  1. What do you mean by how many are there? Your case comes with 3. Also, if you use that on the side, make sure to get dust filters.

    Also, change that CPU to an Intel i5 4690k. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117372

    Hmmm, good catch. That thing is $10 cheaper than the Haswell he had listed. Shocked.
  3. Cooling capability for up to eight fans (2 x 120mm and 1 x 140mm LED fan included)
  4. The Phanteks fans are far better .... $10 here..... $26 up in Canada ..... owwww. Look at some of these:

    The Barracuda is $1 cheaper and sits in 8th place on THG's HD rankings .... the WD Blue's ranking is below 50th place

    Tho since ya don't have an SSD, for just $25 more, I'd highly recommend getting a hybrid SSD/HD

  5. Oh I meant how many fans come in the Case Fan: Fractal Design FD-FAN-SSR2-140 66.0 CFM 140mm Fan ($19.99 @ Memory Express) . It looks like just one.

    Oh and I didn't know that the case comes with 3 fans. Can anyone confirm this? If so, do I really need to buy the extra Case Fan: Fractal Design FD-FAN-SSR2-140 66.0 CFM 140mm Fan ($19.99 @ Memory Express)?

    And @Wallaby The 4690k costs 20$ more here in Canada. Should I still get it? Would it make any difference? I'm trying to cut down costs if anything. =P

    1. Fans come 1 to a package unless indicted otherwise (i.e. Corsair)

    2. Look at your case link, clock on specifications tab
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146087&AID=10657534

    Quote:
    120mm Fans
    Front: 1 x 120mm
    Rear: 1 x 120mm

    140mm Fans
    Top: 1 x 140mm


    3. Speed and Tempos are main differences

    a) 4690k = 3.5 Ghz
    b) 4670k = 3.4 Ghz

    90k CPUs have the new and improved TIM

    The 4690k should overclock a bit further if you are into that, but if you want to, you can just get the 4670k. And the case comes with 3 fans as shown in the pictures of the case. The website in the link is a confirmation of the amount of fans.http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/95-phantom-410-mid-tower-case I recommend the original Phantom if you can get it as it does have better cooling. Amazon has it but I am not sure about Canadian pricing.
  8. I can manage with the 4670k for now I suppose. I'll look into the original as well.
    Ok thanks for the help everyone!
