  1. ditch the water cooling . A $30 cm hyper 212 is more than adequate

    The RE4 hard drive a product for server RAIDs. A conventional hard drive is a better option

    You need a 500 watt psu to run that
  2. If you are overclocking you may want to get an h100 water cooler. If you aren't overclocking I would recommend an i7-3770 processor or an i5-3570 processor (non K)
  3. Would i really see that big of a difference in that h100 then the thermaltake?

    Would you really see that big of a difference with that water than the air cooler?

    and is it worth blowing so much of your budget on something that wont increase performance?
  5. I didnt blow that much on the LCS it was only $60 and a $30 air cooling doesn't do much for looks. Sure the performance increase of the performer won't be that big of a deal but it does still out perform the EVGA superclock cpu cooler at $40, and thats said to be a better air cooling solution out there. me personally i want more control over the heat in my case. i plan on mounting the radiator at the top of the case and installing an additional 200mm on the side panel to keep my GFX card frosty.
