IMHO, the CoolerMaster unit is $29.99, while the Corsair is $79.99...
Both will need two fans for extreme overclocking, so the Corsair unit will cost you at least about twice as much after all is said and done.
Are you really going to notice the extra 200mhz or so from going water? Probably...
Amazing monitors, got my two lookin at me- beggin for a third for some mean eyefinity...
DarkTao did us all a solid, cheers buddy!
Im a San Diego native but it was a pleasure to meet DarkTao in Oceanside to help load the van- Biggest game of Tetris ever!
Alright Tao, lets get our third ;)
Please look into vmoding the chip, simple $10 defogger paint gets you healthy voltage to up the fsb to your hearts content. The G31 is quite robust, even the cheapy ECS ones do 3.33Ghz with simple bsel mod to 266fsb.
tiny fans are usually too loud for good movie watching. I remember the ATI x1650 hdmi low profiles, they were destined for greatness, if the tiny fan wasn't so damn loud. any experiences with this card yet? I want it to be good, looks fun
if you look at the 300 and the more expensive 900, they are built on the same chassis. The frames of the cases match. I only noticed the side window is deleted and the top mount fan is 120mm on the 300 versus 140mm on the 900. Very close otherwise. Great deal.
Asetek makes the cleanest most reliable bdget kits i have ever used. They were very good quality and they stand behind their kits. They sent me a new pump once when i mentioned my fill cap had chipped. very experienced engineers, they do lots of oem stuff
does one video card and a quad core necessitate 750Watts? I am often baffled when you want to save $50 on a video card and then are willing to splurge close to $200 on a PSU, that doesnt affect performance.
