  1. Hmmm...
    1. The ram you suggest is unavailable in denmark, and seems quite expensive. I dont think cas6 is worth so much.
    2. Why change the mobo? The one you suggest has almost the same features but is much more expensive.
    3. The Noctua NH-D14 performs almost equal to the mugen 2, but its ugly, more noisy and more expensive.
    4. I wont ever need a 1kw psu. And i dont care about weither it is modular or not. The haf 922 has space to hide cables anyways. 850w is sufficient.
  2. But i am glad to know that my budget estimation was right xD
  3. Anybody else?
