That too. Although if your not interested in overclocking right now you could always add an aftermarket cooler later cheaply.

Damn, if you buy that 965 and the H60 right now you get $30 more dollars off.

This is what I would do. You save an additional $30 in combo deals with this set up.

or this for a little more

Are you suggesting those to me or for yourself? Just need to know which cases fit my requirements for my future radiator changes and separate loops. (plus all the 5.25" bays I need to occupy.) I may get 2 x 480s, one for each loop. But really it's the CPU (whether it's the haswell or the upcoming chips) that needs the most attention.

I love the Merlin SM8, it is perfect for me. It can fit 2x480 and 1x360 if you install the vertical PSU bar. When I do upgrade to a larger case it would be the ST10 so I can put a front 480 and top 480 leaving my psu/pumps on the bottom. Then you can just call it a day.

I would suggest to you the ST10 if you want 2x480s with PSUs on the bottom and the SM8 if you want 2x480s but PSU on a vertical bar. Up to you really.

I was just saying about the mercury that i'm doing a build with one in the future just because I love SFF/iTX builds.

Which cheaper one? The one you originally posted.

If you mean the cheaper of the two I just posted then hold on. I messed up on that mobo. Let me adjust it. I thought I added a different one.

ETA: Fixed it. That Gigabyte I posted can't crossfire or SLI if you ever want to down the road and this Asrock is a little cheaper anyway.

Coyote,

Even cheaper now



I am so going to turn in that rebate anyway when mine gets here even though it wasn't up when we bought.

Mear, I would maybe buy one of these for your build. It's supposed to be the same as the H60 I added in there it just doesn't have the Corsair name on it.

ETA: Same cooler for $40 less only because it isn't Corsair?

Allegedly. We all ordered one but none of us have gotten them in yet to test out but for $10 after rebates you could always sell it on ebay if it's a POS.

Let me know.

I still have that H70 I ordered a few weeks back in the shrink wrap. I have been unmotivated to fool with my PC too much because I have been working on these mobos and vid cards I have been buying. I might sell that H70 anyway. I only bought it because it was $30 on sale.

Unless the pump flatout doesn't work, I bet it will cool at least as well as or better than a budget aftermarket air cooler like the Evo.

Just ordered everything.

Is it weird that I have a boner?

I get a boner every time someone somewhere places a Newegg order over $1,000. It's affected my home and family life for sure. I've faced a lot of hardships.
