    You know, I thought that exact thing a few days after putting them on.

    e: The SteelSeries mainly though, I was in the RCD Espanyol youth academy, so I'm kind of a die-hard fan.

    I might in the future.

    Also comedy old pc,



    Compaq Presario Case
    AMD Athlon x1 2.2ghz
    ATi Radeon HD 4850
    1.7~ gigs DDR1 Ram (different brands)
    Asus A8N-LA S939
    160GB IDE Samsung HDD
    AMAX (???) 500w PSU from some shady PC shop

    In that PC's defense, it was fucking bulletproof.

    Seriously, that PC was clocking huge temps for about 4-5 (i forget) years, and for two or so years I used that GPU, it idled at fucking 90c, and load around 130c. The little round heat things blew open, and all that jazz, but it kept on trucking. I could go back to Spain and the fucking thing will still probably work fine.

    H60, 20c idle, 35-40c load (1090T @ 4.1ghz, 1.425v), honestly they're ok but I got mine with a free s-flow fan and it was 25% off to begin with so it was worth it, but a high-end air cooler would probably do better.

    One thing I'm keen on with those Corsair water cooler things is the fact that it's one less fan to make noise.

    I just opened up my case.

    Good god, the dust scares me. What methods do you guys use to remove it? I usually use a little cardboard cone attachment I made for the vacuum cleaner but it isn't the best.

    Don't use a vacuum cleaner. Blow it out yourself, or use a can of compressed air.

    But a compressor or compressed air cans are great. Make sure to do it outside though.

    It depends, if you like a big military look then the HAF is a good choice. I love mine just because of that, but especially because it has a ton of room inside and there's no need for screws or tools to install hardware, you just open a slot and slide it in.

    Some people say it's like a Humvee, and in that case, the Coolermaster V8 heatsink I use just makes it even more badass.

    Thanks! My dad has a compressor so I'll use that.

    I'm going to be honest and say one of the reasons I never clean the insides of my keyboard and computer is because I'd rather be using it.

    It was my i7 920 @ 4.2ghz (32c/48c). That picture is about 2 years old. The first version EVGA Classified X58 was one HOT motherboard. I have since bought the 3rd edition Classified with the revised NB heatsink and have removed the waterblock in favor of air cooling.
