  1. You shouldnt have aproblem with memory fit/ to heavy

    But you will need to measure yourself if it will fit in the case.
  2. I see that you use the core contact freezer would you recommend that over my two choices?
  3. ^ yes i would, it gives the most bang for the buck.

    But if you dont mind the cost i would go for the megahalem.

    I just answerd this question like 10 seconds ago...LOL

  4. I will copy/paste my exact answer from that ^ thread:


    Yes the megahalem is better but the CCF is alot better bang for the buck and you will only see 1-2c difference.

    And there is a number of mods that you can do to the CCF that will lower the temps about 8 degrees.
  5. What mods I'm all over the cheaper for about the same performance.
  6. Whew... there are quite a few mods.

    1. Lapp your heatsink and your cooler.(this will drop the temps alot)

    2. Make a "cover" over the heatsink to direct the airflow from the fan so it goes through the heatsink and not out the sides.

    3. Add i fan on the other side.
  7. Couldn't I do the same an obtain better results on the Megahelm?
