    1K OCZ PSU Fan mod

    Why are reviewers afraid to give bad reviews? This is an ugly case. I just wanted to throw that out there. It's fugly. My opinion yes, but I just showed it to my co-workers and they laughed at it. The Cherry Red finish is the only thing it's got going for it. Yet the review they gave was...

    I'm wondering if there are any benchmarks or comparisons that go along these lines. I currently have (2) x1900s in crossfire, but I'm willing to consider moving to an 8800 IF it's a drastic improvement. Thoughts? (Please leave the illogical OMGNVIDIASAVEDMYBABY nonsense out.)

    X1900 cooler?

    Other than the X2 Accelero, which I don't want, are there any other after market coolers for the X1900 that people would recommend? I'm looking for something that will draw the air out of the case. My stock cooler is only loud when temps rise. But I was wondering if there's something more...
