    Looking for a quiet cooler that doesn't take up half the case

    Hoping someone can help me with a suggestion, I'm building a quiet pc, and the last part I'm stuck on is the CPU cooler. I have a scythe mugen 2 on the way, but the more I read about it and see that it basically makes the 4th ram slot unusable and the 3rd iffy at best (especially when you're...

    Anyone have a Fractal Design R2/3 and a Scythe Mugen 2?

    Laptops with best battery life?

    Looking to buy a laptop under $1,000. Would like one that gets at least 3 hours of life while using wireless, obviously the longer the better. My only big requirement other than that would be a widescreen (hooked on it, no going back now :) ). Saw that OD and CC both have this HP laptop on...
