    Looks pretty nice, switch out the HSF for this one though

  2. Thanks Jbaker. I was proud of my self for this build actually! Lol

    I have an Antec PSU

    That monitor is really nice! I might grab that actually.

    I do have a question about the HSF, Is the v8 not good? or is it just over priced?
  3. the v8 is over priced and over rated http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm
  4. It's not really that overrated, it's just overpriced imo

  5. I actually have a nice little combo deal going on newegg...bout 30 dollars off with the Mobo and the v8, I wonder if maybe its worth it since im saving the money?
