You have 1 set of DDR2-800 and 1 set of DDR2-667 memory.

Case -> Antec 900

the g.skill ram is for my girlfriends laptop.

As far as the cpu cooler goes the dark knight was my second choice being that i read the V8 cooled better and if i would plan on ever upgraded to an i7 i would be able to use that one just fine.



Also price limit being 1200 (including shipping)

Thanks

Where did you read that? And did you know the XIGMATEK Dark Knight is also a socket 1366 cooler?

I didnt know that the dark knight was that socket also.

As far as cooling goes I just read different people's responses to using each of the coolers which cant be 100% accurate.

I may go with the dark knight and just up the shipping :)

I wasn't knocking the CM V8 - I was just hoping you'd seen a comparison.
From what I've read so far the CM V8 trails the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme 1366RT and Noctua NH-U12P just slightly.
And we've seen the XIGMATEK S1283 beating the 775 socket versions of the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme.
So I'd hoped you'd have a review that showed what an extra $30 worth of cooling could get in a head-to-head DK 1283 and CM V8 test on the OC'd i7 920.
