ohh i made a mistake with the 7000, ops :x

so boom we got the
Thermaltake Big Typhoon CL-P0114 120mm Cooling Fan with Heatsink
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061

or

ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Blue LED Light Cooling Fan with Heatsink
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118223

question is how is this installed, does this go on the top of the CPU?

yes. i am not sure about the installation of the zalman but the typhoon will require you to unscrew and replace the original mounting bracket on the motherboard, don't worry its not hard. its pretty easy if you install the typhoon while you are building but swapping it out on a pc thats already built is pretty annoying

i would get the 16x as i highly doubt you'll find any discs that would let you burn at 18x anyway.

ooo, smart man, i didnt think about that. so true.

does the cache make any difference? I mean it is a 100 dollor difference between the 8MB cache and the $35 bucks 2MB cache dvd burners.

well i doubt the blueray burner is going to be available anytime soon. not for atleast 1.5 year, i jus t want to know what the cache does for the dvd burner so I can make my decision as to if I need it or not for the moment.

well it helps but the standard 2mb cache should be adequate. besides there is a RAM buffer, the drives buffer is kind of like an extra layer of protection. cache really doesn't have anything to do with errors, that has to do with the burners laser and the discs themselves. the cache is to prevent "buffer underruns"
