More about cooling please
  1. The best coolers are the Megahalems and Venomous-X.
    A cheaper unit is the CM Hyper 212+.

    could you give me any links please that would be awesome
  3. FrostyTech Top 5 CPU cooler (ok, so there are 10 in the list)

    CM Hyper 212 Plus / Thermalright Ultra Extreme / Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme
    What case will you be using? You'll want to make sure they'll fit.
  4. i am using the antec 900 but if it doesnt fit i am willing to buy a new case cuz i am buying new mobo 2 ati 5850 i7 920 or 930 havent decided that one so if you can suggestions on that too would be awesome
  5. Even the 160mm coolers will fit the Antec 900: Megahalem 159mm / Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme 160.5mm
    CM Hyper 212 Plus 158.5mm / Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme 152mm
  6. i am going to get the ASUS P6X58D Premium as a MOBO with 2 ATI 5850s..are any of those going to block any ram slots?
  7. What RAM are you getting?
  8. i decided i7 930 and since i am getting at Microcenter saturday this is what i am looking at from the site

    http://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.phtml?Ntx=&Ntt=&Ntk=&N=4294966965+4294957262&Ns=&Nso=&sht=Any&prt=NewProduct&web_group=
  9. That CORSAIR XMS3 6GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Cas8 is looking good. And they're not the extra tall RAM modules so HSF clearance isn't an issue
    Good customer reviews for the same set over @ NewEgg.
  10. looks like they are out of stock for those ones
  11. i have this for store pick up right now it was last one dont know if you could see it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148254&cm_re=crucial_ballistix_6gb-_-20-148-254-_-Product
  12. That set looks good too. Note those customer ratings @ NewEgg ... very good.
