    which Z77 motherboard are you already planning to get and why?

    Biostar TZ77XE4 because it has great VRMs and can OC. The matte black pcb looks sick as well. Also I am poor so a great overclocking board under $150 with features found in 200+ boards is the definite choice.

    AsRock Z77 owners poll re: ASRock Digi Power PWM scam

    Their caps are most likely Japanese but the digipower is only partially true. If you read indepth reviews on their mid-high end motherboards, you will find that their motherboards have a hybrid design with both digi and analog voltage regulators.

    Could running a fan connected to mobo affect overclock?

    There's no way that a fan plugged in can affect your CPU OC stability. BSOD 101 is always associated with voltages. Either go up or go down.

    GTX680 - Stock "blower" fan or "custom" fan?

    Catleap 27" Monitor

    They are basically Apple's 27" Cinema displays. They are actually rejected panels because they do not meet the strictest standard to be an Apple Cinema display so these small Korean companies buy them up and assemble to sell. Super high resolution IPS displays at an affordable price. I can't...

    Cooler Master Cosmos II Case

    Yeah well for me too, I'm trying to downsize even from a midtower because I can't imagine lugging around a Cosmos II case on the train and bus for 5 hours when I go home during school breaks.

    Too good to be true?

    The biggest thing I'm worried about is the one year warranty. Even though it might be manufactured by a quality company, there is always a chance that something could go wrong after a year of hiccup free operation.

    Seasonic 1k platinum, antec 1k platinum, or seasonic 1250 gold?

    Never heard my x650 coil whine ever, however, my MSI GTX 560 Ti TFII did have really bad coil whine when I used them to fold 24/7
