Re: Lian Li T1"Spider"

I wonder how strong those spider legs are, hehe it would be horrible if your testbed collapses and couldn't handle an nh-d14.

Re: Will i7 930 release drive down prices of i7 range computers?

Probably a little but most probably not. Intel made sure that the new I7s have a small bump in Mhz and performance so they can offer it in similar prize structure as the ones they are replacing.

Re: RAM Prices Are They Going Up or Down?

I check dramexchange daily: http://www.dramexchange.com/

its annoying how ddr3s are supposed to go down as ddr2 climbs, but the fallout of 2009's economy means increased prices for everything :/

Re: Suggetions for new gaming mouse + keyboard

The CM Sentinel looks nice, it has space to put your thumbs so you don't keep on hitting the side buttons (like on my NZXT avatar ](*,) )
also has weight control so that's good.

Re: Intel DX58SO mobo + tall ram + super heatsinks

The tall ram heatsinks really limit my cooling options on this board, its bad enough the local stores here don't carry a bi...

I would love to win this! There's no stores that carry Noctua here in Toronto (all of them are in the West Coast) with the exception of TigerDirect which charges double the retail price of other stores :(

Intel DX58SO mobo + tall ram + super heatsinks

So I have been looking at all the legit reviews heatsink reviews and thankfully the dx58so is used so I can see which of the top heatsink coolers would fit with tall ram, apparently the answer is none :( I am tempted to get the Corsair H50 but the idle temps are disturbingly high :/.
