What's the difference between a crossover and catleap?

Yea the shimian all white looks slick, but it only has one DVI input so I'd have to get two of them (one for my xbox)

They all use the exact same LG panels. Difference comes in the controller and logic board. They are roughly all the same in the department though.

The crossover has a much better stand which can do portrait mode. The bezel is also much thinner and cleaner. Catleaps stand sort of sucks, feels like the thing will break. Whichever you choose it will be a good choice none the less.

re: New Case for PC Gaming Build.


Okay, so all my parts come in on thursday. I was looking at the fan controller i got. I need two 4pin to 3pin adapters for two of my fans. Went to best buy to get some, they didn't have any. Neither did walmart, lowes, or homedeopt. Any suggestions on where i can get some in br i don't want to have to wait on shipping them.

Amazon will probably only be 3-4bucks extra and if you buy at NewEgg today if will probably be here by Thursday-Friday.

You don't need a single case fan to "build" your computer. They are just nice to have.

No i know i just wanted it done, you know? Think i might have found some at office depot though.

Plus, i could still run it off the mobo or the power supply. Until the adapter comes in.

Yea.. but a build is never done. You are always adding and/or upgrading. Building rigs is like an addiction, I love starting new builds and try building HTPC/Gaming/Web browsers for whoever I can.

Oh you are talking about 3pin to molex?

I thought you meant 3pin to 4pin fan. A 4pin fan controller is a PWM and can be controlled by the MOBO.

The fan controller didn't come with a 4pin molex to 3pin?

Post the controller you purchased again.

The fan controller came with 5 3pin adapters. Two of the fans in the case are 140mm fans with molex ends.

Yes but those molex ends should be split to do molex or 3/4pin.

Are they not?

Well I officially love newegg and shoprunner. Ordered my mobo sunday night and it just got here today. Now I just have to wait on my damn case and RAM (I can still use my old sticks).

I still can't decide whether I want to get a reurb h80 off of Newegg for $70, an h100 off eBay for $50ish, or fork out the extra money for a brand new h100

Wow, those are some cheap fans. They will probably be super loud.

ETA:
What you posted won't work. Your controller has male ends and you need female ends.

Give me a sec to find something.

Amazon

Performance PCs
