Im using a COOLER MASTER GX Series RS750-ACAAE3-US 750W ATX12V v2.31 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply


needed a upgrade badly and well i deserve something for working 18.25 hours in one day last week


Also i might write up a review of my case once everything finish's arriving... i get ups here at my house like two to three times a week for the past three weeks lol.

The case so far is rather large plenty of space in it. I lvoe the hard drive slots and the spacer area in between drives. The screw less CD and hdd slots are a plus. This thing is silent from fan noise. I have my old rig and new case next to each other and i hear zero from my new case. It has space for a water cooling solution built in and plenty of room for a nice radiator/pump.

Man im like a kid waiting on christmas

Not sure, of course they are socket dependent.
I would definitely get air cooling instead of water cooling. Its cheaper and won't fry your whole machine with one drop.
Also, make sure your case is large enough if you get a real big one.
Coolermaster makes some good ones.

LoLz I was really thinking of going with the hexa core chips but thought the 4 core @ 3.4 would be good enough til a better architecture x6 or x8 comes out cheap. phenom x6 is just a phenom not much is going to use it

Ugh UPS is coming again on the 7th and 8th.
