Hi, I just had a few questions about picking cases-
1)My first choice would be a coolermaster stacker 830
, and its not very clear- I think it comes with 2 fans- would another 3-4 scythe s-flex 120mm fans (with one for the CPU cooler) be enough to get a decent airflow going? In any case, what version: I was thinking 1600rpm for the cpu (with themalright ultra 120) and 1200rpm for everything, or is 1600 the way to go?
2)The coolermaster is a little pricey (~$290 in UK)- some people have suggested various other ones (thankyou!) but there seems such a huge choice- Is there a good way of going about finding good ones, other than trawling through hundreds of reviews? And any more good (ATX form) suggestions are welcome! Of course aesthetics are personal, but its nice to know which ones tend to have good cool airflow and which ones tend to crack.
3)As for more compact towers, what are the options. A friend had a build with a tiny box case, which was quite cool, but gpu temps etc. were always a problem. Is there something in between? If so, is there something in between which could be considered the equal of a full size case in terms of cooling?
4) Completely unrelated question, stupid I know: In buying a graphics card, say the EVGA 8800GTS 320MB, they suggest a minimum current on the 12V channel. So for this card, that value is 26A (26Amps! I've fried stuff with much less!), so say I wanted this
power supply (600w), which supplys 18A over 4x12v rails, is that ok? Would I combine two 12v output leads and plug into the card, or what?..
Oh, and does anyone have an opinnion on that PSU? The reviews look good!
