Re: $2500 Rig. Need some help.
i think the plan was triple 5850 or crossfire 5870^ it's not worth going for triple anyway, it just cost too much for what you get.
As said, you wont need water, that involves learning a whole lot if you thought about making your own loop. The prolimatech magehalems and the Titan Fenrir are the two best cooler on the market, you will only need one good quality fan like a scythe s-flex which isn't too loud but still provides good airflow. Adding two won't give you that much of a decrease in temps. The HAF comes loaded with cooling so don't worry about buying any additional cooling fans, it's most likely if you add any more you will just disrupt the intended airflow.
