    better power supply for less money. same wattage.
    swap the ram out for these low profile ram. they do sell 2b4g sticks. these newer ram will fit under most heat sinks so you dont lose dimm slots. also on your friends cooler make sure it has the bracket for 1155 chips. the newer heat sinks have the intel bracket with three screw positions...775..1155/1156/1333.
  2. I read somewhere that the cx series is not that great. Ill look at the ram and yes the heat sink is a 1155 chip thanks for the help . I appreciate any further assistants.
