No offense taken. I just plug the stats into eBay's listing and it gives a shipping price based on your location. The package has an old shipping label on it that says 18lbs from when Koolance mailed it to me and the dimensions of the box are 20x12x10. It ships from 20815.
This PSU was an RMA for the original and this one has been sitting in my closet for YEARS. Please take this off my hands! Opened for the sole purpose of checking contents. Sadly, I don't have the power cables for it, but they are modular and hopefully easy to find.
Box opening to prove it...
I'm a guy that LOVED BF2, played it religiously for years. Then BF3 came out. I enjoyed it, but started to wonder if we have "too much of a good thing" with respect to depth. I didn't even bother with BF4 since I didn't want to build another player so close to the BF3 release.
Longtime member, but I mostly lurk these days. It really is great to see the PC community flourishing again. I sure had a blast back in the '90s and '00s. I've had many Lian-Li cases over the years. When I stumbled upon the M1 project a few months back, I wrote it off as too pricey, even...
I'm running an OC'd i7 965 + two OC'd 480GTX's with one loop and no problems.
CPU - Swiftech Apogee XT
GPUs - Danger Den 480GTX block
Motherboard - Koolance Rampage 2 Extreme blocks
PSU - Koolance PSU-1300ATX (watercooled PSU)
The pump is a Liang DDC and the radiator is Koolance's 3x120mm unit...
I think it depends on your goals, but I've got a pair of GTX480s watercooled and SLI'd and I'm really happy with the setup. Low noise and my system (with mild OC'ing) only pulls abotu 620watts under load.
Energy efficient? No.
Quiet and smooth gaming? Yes!
You know, if you buy through the apple store online, you can use a student discount at the educational store and they don't verify that you're a student. I've done it a number of times since I got out of college.
Yeah, that vapochill must be sucking a HUGE amount of power. Maybe it's time to go back to watercooling
Edit: In case people don't know, the vapochill has it's own power supply. The power consumption listed above is for EVERYTHING
Yikes! Just got a "Kill-A-Watt" and with my Geforce 280 and it's STARTLING how much power I'm using. Now I need to figure out how much of that is the Vapochill LS.
With my 8800GTX under load, I was at 640 watts.
The biggest improvement seems to be at idle were my power consumption had...
Ah ha! I should have looked at your sig and noted some sarcasm. You'll have to excuse my initially dry response!
I thought about dual aircooled 280s, but my whole system would have to be upgraded for me to go that route. I'm only running a PCP&C Turbo Cool 510 and it's already working...
I have my 8800GTX watercooled and my cpu phase cooled.
As far as cooling capacity, I'm running a single Swiftech MCP355 with 3/8" tubing. The card is one of BFG's factory applied watercooled GTXs. Which is basically just a danger den water block.
I'm only using a single 120MM...
I had a Dell 2000FP (the predecessor to yours) and just recently replaced it with a 24" and really love the additional width. Although, two 20" displays would give you a lot more workspace than one 24".
