    What case can handle dual Antec 620 in push/pull on top?

    I am about to do a new build and I picked up two of the Antec 620 coolers when they were on sale, one for CPU and one for GPU (gonna strap it on a GTX 670). I grabbed 4 Gentle Typhoons so I can do push/pull on each radiator. A friend of mine said he thought that would make them too tall...

    Problem with both mouse and keyboard. HELP!

    Questions about lapping

    It's been a while since I've built a new box. Are you guys still lapping the heat spreader on their cpu's before you mount your cooling, or has Intel gotten better at making them flat? I just picked up an 8400 at Fry's. Should I dig out the old, thick mirror again and a bunch of grits? Any...

    SLI or not

    Thinking about a new rig for gaming. My monitor is the 37" Westy that does 1920 x 1080. Will one 8800GTX keep me on top of the mountain for a while, or do I consider 2 of them for the next system crippler like Crysis? I keep reading that 2 only start to make a difference at 1980 x 1200...

    Bad Axe 2 OC and RAM question
