    Corsair Graphite 600T

    thanks for the link! =D The case looks sweet on the inside, not sure if I'm a fan of the "round" look. I like the sharp look of the 800d

    Unlocked Phenom II X2 555 Seems Unstable

    Unlocked cores on amds always run a chance of being unstable. I've heard that quite a few of the 3-core processors that are unlocked have problems such as the core running at lower clock speeds and stuff. You might have just gotten bad cores =/

    Unusual Problem

    A lot of viruses/malware aren't detected by any antivirus programs. Go to start>run>type 'msconfig'>Go to the startup tab. Look for any programs that look suspisious, names such as DdsCtdE.exe are usually viruses. Just uncheck any that look like this and restart, see if that helps.

    Fan advice?

    If you're worried about the noise, I'd definitely invest in a fan controller. It will help much more than new fans and will last you forever. This one is noted as very good by almost everyone, and its cheap Scythe KQ01-BK-3.5 "KAZE Q" Fan Controller I like these fans also: Scythe SY1225SL12M...

    When does processor become a bottlneck?

    If you oc like some people have been saying you'll probably be fine. It would probably on bottleneck 3dmark scores or video benchmarks

    This power supply sufficient for GTX 570?

    You'll be fine for now, but I wouldn't recommend buying a GTX 570 unless you're planning on upgrading your cpu =/ Your current one will bottleneck your framerate if you're playing on high settings/resolution. Probably should think about moving to an i3 or a Q9550 or something similar!

    Ram speeds above 1000mhz have been shown to show almost no performance boost besides memory benchmarks, and the same goes with timing (cas latency). Voltage can easily go to 1.40v without harming anything, as long as the temps aren't too crazy. I've heard that you should try to keep it under...

    I7 870 Idle temps...

    The hyper 212 is such a good cooler for the price if you get it on sale. If you can't I'd throw in $10 extra and get the Scythe Mugen 2. LINK Open box
