I helped my buddy hook up Corsair H90 a couple weeks ago. I swear I think its same cooler as the X40. Wouldn't shock in least if there one company making these. The only reason I got the X40 was it was $10 cheaper.

According to this review it does make difference:

But who knows how legit it is...   Product reviews on coolers are typically a real crap shoot.

^ Very nice. It looks like you removed the unneeded drive bays. I hate those things lol.Elann2008

I'm actually thinking about side mounting the SSD's and removing the other drive bay.  I'm just not sure where to put my 750G HD.

Hey guys I gotta question about the deathadder.   I love the feel of this mouse thinking about picking one up.   How do you change dpi settings?   I'm use to a dedicated switch.   Like what is on Logitech mice..    I would like have my mouse setup as this :   

 

Side buttons

C

V

wheel for switching weapons and center mouse wheel for scope(FPS).   If I dedicate one of buttons to dpi won't I loose my hotkeys?   I play a lot FPS games.   This is the typical configuration I use.   Does synapse software allow to use a shift + key command for switching DPI?

I would rather get a significant upgrade and go with CF config later on down the road

[QUOTE="tolkiennutt"]

Don't mean to hijack the thread.  I'm thinking about picking up one these up.   I got GTX 570 looks like pretty good upgrade especially for the cost..   Thoughts?  My MOBO supports CF.  Gives me option of going CF later on.   I only play @ 1920 x 1080.

going from a GTX 570 to 7870 is not a real good upgrade, GTX 570 is only on average at 1080 only 5% slower then a normal 7870, and is about 15% slower then a 7950. I would wait awhile to get a worth while upgrade.

Thanks! The only game thats got me little worried is Metro Last light. The most demanding games I'm playing right now is FC3 and Crysis 2 and their playing pretty smooth. I had to tweak FC3 a little, but everything is on ultra for most part. I gotta say my 570 has been great card.
