This is the boat I'm in.

I'd like to do a complete new rig this winter... but kinda' doubting I'll go that route. Just no need to. My 920 is stock and it's still far more CPU than I need. Instead I'm thinking I'll just do a major over-haul to this rig- possibly newer mobo, max the ram out, larger SSDs, new video card, larger HDDs, etc. If I can find one for cheap enough I'm hoping to snag a 970... but I'm not too worried about that. Oh, also looking to pickup an IPS LED monitor this winter, if I can find a reasonable deal on a decent one.

Regarding your new rig... that thing will be a beast! You'll love it. Looking forward to pics as well.

Is that where you put them when you murder them?

my upgrade from Q9550 to 2500K didn't make much difference to GTAIV but I blame the game.

I have 4 Tri-Cool fans that have been running for over 3 years each without the first issue.

Mine came with my case, so maybe it's a different batch.

I have never had an issue with my tri cool fans. Some of the quietest fans around, or they were when I used them. I'm using corsair 200m right now.

I've had like 5 antec cases, so I have had a metric ****load of tri cool fans. There was at one point a recall on the tri cool fans, so I have a bunch of faulty ones mostly from that. I still have some that still work; using one right now. However, there are much better and cheaper fans out there to choose from.

Okay so we have established that Roadhog has yet again crapped on another thread for the sake of a 120mm fan choice. Great job you get the a$$hat award.
