    Re: Hows the rig?

    That looks pretty good...only thing i would look at is the heatsink...ive had artic cooling heatsinks before and they haven't been great. If you going quad core...you need a good one as they run v hot even with the G0 stepping. Try looking at the thermal right ultima 90.

    Ah well, let me tell you the issues with scan!!! Firstly out of stock out of stock out of stock, then item overdue item overdue item overdue. So i cant be bothered with Scan, plus now ebuyer have G0 some items maybe 6-7££ more expensive but im willing to pay that now since ive waited so long. I even spoke to someone on the phone at Scan and they said the P5k-E is not supposed to be in on the 24th but the 28th so the 28th i phone and apparently its supposed to be in on the weekend, i've had enough!

    It's not suitable for the Scan forum, lets move it over to Hardware to see what the community has to say about your component selections.
    Please do not message me about Scan Free shipping, I no longer work for HEXUS.net

    Re: Hows the rig?

    that looks good, though i wouldn't go for the superclocked version of the card, just get the normal version and o/c it.

    what res will that be running?

    Nice to see that im not the only one that's not a huge fan of the AC's

    They are average. Really no idea why everyone rants and raves about them?

    Re: Hows the rig?

    the samsung spinpoint is a fiver cheaper and way better than the wd, and change the heatsink as already mentioned, maybe a scythe or similar..
