    Best 120mm fans

    Fans last forever, what's $12.99 when you can have the peace of mind that it'll be silently reducing your temps and increasing reliability for years to come :D

    Modular PSU under 400w...

    Just buy the cheapest reliable PSU you can find and cut off the wires you don't need, then solder the ends or seal with plastic caps or electrical tape.

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    Ended up going with the Fractal Design Mini instead. Might try the Temjin if I need something smaller in the future.

    Is it always the best idea to choose Microcenter over Newegg?

    I would say Micro Center. The money you save over having to pay for shipping (especially on large items like cases and power supplies) really makes a difference. And even if item X is the same price @ Newegg and Microcenter after you factor in tax and shipping, would you rather pay $15 to UPS or...

    Recommendation for a gaming monitor

    Not sure if they already deleted your other thread or not, but Samsung is the king of sub-$200 widescreens. I think you can even get an IPS in your price range for the size

    Thor V2 or HAF X?

    I vote for the Thor, it just looks more elegant.

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    The Temjin is flimsier? I would be looking at the Silverstone FT03 as well but it's pretty pricey and I've heard a lot about build quality issues Thanks!

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    Thanks. I just picked up my 2500k from Micro Center with a Maximus IV Gene-Z so it looks like I'll be running pretty much the same setup you are. I don't really care about size, I guess I just like the novelty of mATX. The Core 1000 is tempting as I'm on a budget but no front panel...

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    Where's the cheapest place to pick one of these up? Looks like Newegg is out of stock. Also, why would one choose the Temjin over a Fractal Define or Arc Mini?

    decently quiet gaming FT03 rig, suggestions?

    Get the Maximus IV Gene-Z.

    67 C in the cores under max load too hot for E8400?

    Are you using the stock cooler? I've never seen mine over 60c, and I run it at 4.1ghz.

    Why would anyone by a Core i7 2600 (non-K)?

    I'm assuming you mis-typed and are wondering why I compared MC prices vs. Newegg. MC is out of the 2600k's and Newegg's 2600 price is way high. So I compared the best available price for each and took the difference to show the K is more than "just a few dollars" more

    Why would anyone by a Core i7 2600 (non-K)?

    The standard 2600 is $250 @ MC... $80 less than Newegg's 2600k (MC no longer has the K in stock) - so it's quite a bit cheaper. Also, none of the matx boards are P67 (meaning none currently support overclocking) - so if one wants to build a SB HTPC they have no use for an unlocked processor...

    e8400 Overclock

    You'll be fine. I've been running my e8400 at 4ghz (1.4v in bios) for ~1.5 years now, 24 hours a day. I turn it off maybe once a week

    Which software to download for stability testing?

    Aquamark is a joke. If I'm testing new oc settings I'll do Hyperpi 1M first, then prime95, then orthos, then 3dmark 06 and vantage. I wouldn't leave any of these running for more than about an hour like some of these guys are doing. If it hasn't failed in an hour it's probably not going to, and...

    Will the Intel e6420 bottleneck my GTX 460?

    definitely oc that shit! my 460 would be bottlenecked by my e8400 if it was stock. But at 4.1ghz it's pretty well balanced
