Corsair H50 is keeping things nice and cool, i've noticed when you first turn it on it's a bit noisy. Kind of vibrates a bit.

I had a look into it, apparently there is a chance it could get air bubbles in it during production which the pump doesn't exactly like.

That sucks, but what can I do, it goes away after about 5 mins.

I think the biggest thing that made this system feel like an upgrade was the SSD. I was a bit cautious at first due to how much they cost. ($3/GB!) but it's amazing when you use programs and an OS loaded onto one. Can't wait till this technology eventually replaces HDD's (I can hope). I think it's one of those things like 56k > cable back in the day!

I heard Intel is releasing a 600GB SSD in 2011. I'm sure Rand can pop one of them into his system ;)

He isn't running SSD's from my knowledge.

I'm running them in RAID 0 :twisted:

My next rig is underway, trust me the case mod is going to be something to be seen :wink:

Got bored of my i7, heading towards a 6 core Phenom and 16GB ram and xfire 5870's all with custom water cooling.

Nah still not sold on SSD's sticking with my raptors for the time being. dual 10k raptors in raid 0 is more than enough speed and it comes with lots of storage to boot.

Fair enough, I was a bit reluctant at first re: the limited writes but I've read people aren't doing all these tweaks and just using it "as normal" and still having it report 35 years till it's dead if they keep up their current write frequency.
I can't see myself needing it beyond 5 years at most personally!

Also, why do you have 2 forums accounts? lol

Necro thread!

Since my PC is shitting itself, and I am due for an upgrade, is this still an OK system (approx) to look at?

Read a bit about Sandy Bridge and its issues so gonna give that a miss and stick with the 1366 chips.

On a budget so my 1GB 9800 GTX card will have to do in lieu of the one listed, but rest is doable..just :P
