    What shoud I upgrade?

    I know that Lian Li cases are renowned for their quality, but they just look boring and don't seem very innovative. but thats just my opinion.

    Which would you say is better and why- Silverstone TJ07 or TJ10?

    Yeah I don't think the water cooling would be worth the investment. Do you have any other good case suggestions since $500 is a lot of money for a case. I'm just worried about losing too much money by selling the GTX285 My favorite case is the silverstone FT01 and I think a great case for watercooling is the coolermaster cosmos S (cheaper than the TJ07 to) I had a look at the FT01 but I would prefer a full tower. I just want a case thats big, has a window and looks good.

    Yeah that sound like a pretty good idea. Thanks
  11. After selling my laptop I now have $2k to spend on my rig. The rig is as follows Intel Core i7 @ 4.00ghz cooled by a TRUE Black with 2 90CFM fans Gigabyte EX-58-Extreme Corsair Dominator Ram 1600mhz 6gb XFX GTX 285 Black Edition 2x Samsung 1tb in RAID Corsair HX1000 Antec Twelve Hundred LG Blu-Ray drive The options I have thought about: 1. Buying a Silverstone TJ07 and doing a water cooled setup, buying a netbook with the leftovers 2. Buying 2 more GTX 285s and doing Tri-SLI, and buying a netbook with the leftovers Please post any ideas you might have.....

    Best RAM cooler?

    I'm using an i7 920 and yes I will be overclocking. Excellent. In that case, I guarantee it'll be a complete waste of time. :) The cooler will do nothing because: a) The CPU will max out before the RAM does, due to the locked multiplier of the 920. b) The RAM will physically max out before heat comes into play, due to the 1.65v max safe limit of the Core i7 platform. There are ways around this, but extra voltage usually achieves nothing anyway. c) The Corsair Dominator's already have good heatspreaders, which are more than enough. If you hit 4GHz on your CPU, the RAM will either run at 2GHz, or 1600MHz. I'm not sure if those sticks will hit 2GHz, so you'll probably be stuck with the stock setting of 1600MHz regardless. :) so I should just stick with a cpu cooler and the case fans?
