I'd get the H100 if I had a more "standard" case. NZXT phantom has two "200mm" (192mm
-- 200mm proprietary) fans up top with no mount for the H100 radiator. Dream case is one from the Obsidian series, but the Phantom was on a fantastic sale. H70 and H80/H100 have higher throughput than the H60 with their pump, H80 has a thicker radiator, and H100 has a double wide radiator. H80 and H100 have different speed profiles and light up when different temperatures. H60 is pretty much bare minimum IMO. H50 is apparently too slow to get a benefit over regular coolers (although can be cheaper and easier fitting).
Just went to a liquidation warehouse and picked up a 17" 4:3 LCD monitor for my dual display for like 40 bucks today. It's pretty nice.
Tim, do you have any good W7 utilities you use that make better use of multi-threading than system utilities? I'm rocking 7zip for the n
core LZMA2 compression, but aside from that I only really use hyper threading with Linux.
Also, speaking of corsair, I think this will be my keyboard (currently using a dell POS) http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-gam...-keyboard.html
. I'll have to find/make a driver for all those G keys for Linux. That should make my VIM and XMonad configs nice and complicated.
