Fry's doesn't as many deals as NewEgg, just go there with a list of newegg prices, and you get to check out the actual product!

Hmm, true, but with newegg I have to pay tax and s&h. But frys I think the prices will be higher. Are there any sites online that I could buy my parts from, like newegg.

Wait, are you say go to frys with my newegg part list and by my stuff there, or just check the prices. Because I need to figure out where to get my parts soon because like I said, I'm ordering it soon.

I have the AC Freezer 7 pro also and it's good but I would have gotten the Rosewill if it had been available at the time.

Here is a thread discussing the Rosewill

Rosewill RCX-2775 CPU cooler. A diamond in the rough.

they both look like good coolers, thanks
EDIT**
Wow, I just read that and a couple of review, and the cooler looks great. But I see it comes with thermal compound already. Should I still get my own compound and take the stuff that is on there off? But how would I take the stuff that is on there off?

I always built every one of my computers in my room thats fully carpeted. Had to be dozens and never once had a problem. I also use a magnetic screw driver to install the MB and all hard to get screws.

Umm, I can sorta understand the carpet thing, but I though it was not good to use magnetic screw drivers?

Well ive built my pc on carpet and allways use magnetic screw drivers. never had any problems whatsoever. I can't even get a large static build on my carpet if i try, no matter what i do i never generate more than 2/10ths of a volt (used a multimeter )

It's fine...seriously.
