Talking AMD Fans.. Check my new setup!

It'll be in tomorrow.. THe WiFi will be nice once I get a laptop! I think I may TRY vista... I'll be open minded...

Maxtor 200G, 7200RPM OS HD (Came in today)

Newegg.com - ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom 9950 BLACK EDITION Agena 2.6GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 140W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Newegg.com - CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory


I also got an UbEr Heatsink! I just hope it'll fit in my Antec 900 case! I can point the ex straight up at the top fan (if it'll clock that way).

will work better. That heatsink you chose was only a 92mm compared to this 120mm

I'm looking into liquid cooling.. Checked out that link in the other thread to Petra's Tech shop or something. I'm new to water cooling, but I want to cool my cards down too.. But I don't want to spend a lot..

I'm thinking Water > heatsinks..

Watercooling isnt needed unless you want to overclock like crazy... And if you do, you should just get the black edition with the xigmatek rifle....
