    First build ever (computer noob)

    Their warranty is superb. Double Lifetime = you sell the vid card to someone, and they also get a lifetime warranty (providing you both register the card on their site). I've been stickig with XFX and EVGA cards for the last several years, and no complaints at all. Only one RMA out of tons of...

    Yeah, the greenpower drives are good for HTPCs or mass storage, but not gaming rigs. Overkill in the vid card department is a good thing. No matter what your card, not far down the road is a game that won't run smoothly with full details and res, AA and AF. Or, maybe you get a bigger monitor...

    He means the AC97 or HD sound. You use one or the other, not both.

    I have. Clock for clock, AMD is way behind. The only advantage is in lower end systems where rediculous speed isn't a concern, and you save a bit on the mobo too. ATI warrantys suck huge chunks. I won't buy a vid card without a lifetime warranty. .

    I have that case, love it! Really need 12GB ram? Why not go with 6GB, and get faster DDR3-1600 ram? It's always easier to run 3 sticks rather than 6 sticks, it will clock faster and run tighter timings. The CPU is fine. There isn't much to choose from in that newest socket, and unless you...

    Cables could be much better. Put off any other stuff till you get a decent CPU cooler -- will make it look much better as well as run cooler.

    Interestingly, my upper cathode is in the same place as yours, and is also lopsided. It is a naturale place to mount the thing, but if using zipties the thing refuses to sit perfectly horizontal.

    What nascar sim you running? Ever try rFactor? GTR Evo? I like nascar just fine, but prefer F1 and Prototypes followed by GT Sedans. Still using a momo wheel, but plan to get a G15 eventually. Been sim racing since the early Indycar racing series, played ladders with 1v1 races over a modem. .

    Very interesting! It is not so suprising how well this cooler does then! .

    Prolimatech Megahalems CPU Cooler Review Comment Thread

    So therefore, the bracket does clear the caps in an east west orientation? It just seemed to me (from the pictures) that the caps which the bracket would sit above when in east west orientation are too high for the retention system to clear. It looks like it barely clears the smaller and shorter...

    Prolimatech Megahalems CPU Cooler Review Comment Thread

    Great review, seems an outstanding product. Knocking the Vendetta off the pedestal is no small thing! Looking at the picture of the mounting bracket displayed above the quoted text, I see that the bracket cannot be orientated in any other way, as the caps around the cpu socket appear to block...

    Cooler Master V8 CPU Cooler Review Comment Thread

    Thanks for the suggestions, I know I will probably end up with the like (or similar). The only thing that turns me off about those two coolers is that they look like Freezer Pros. I've used the Freezer in dozens of builds, and just sort of tired of the look. However, these perform a lot better...

    While this thread may be wandering off topic with all the fan discussion, it sure is interesting info! Watching this closely! Back to the cooler... this HSF will solve a couple problems I have with my current system, yet introduces new problems (the fan and performance per dollar). I've also...
