That Corsair Graphite series is very cool looking and also very highly rated.
And not only does it filter the dust but you don't notice it as much on the white Case
The fan speed dial looks to be very handy but I am not sure...what do you-all think about it?
Personally, I find picking out a case I love to be the most fun part!
I have seen you talk about cases alot here in the past and I knew you enjoyed it. I get the feeling that even though a case might have much more room for options I won't need it still helps in air circulation.
I don't upgrade from the stock heatsinks and my CPU always runs nice and cool. If you overclock, then you definitely need to upgrade. But if you don't plan on overclocking, it's more of a personal preference.
It is always advisable to use an aftermarket heatsink/fan . They do a better job of cooling . I like the cooler master case myself . As for a dust filter for the psu , that is a good idea . It would definitely come in handy if the psu was mounted with the fan facing down . With the fan facing up , not a whole lot you can do
I see! And the heatsink upgrades aren't all that expensive - it's only another $25 - $50 unless you get the really high-powered ones.
Yes it is inexpensive and I guess it could only help right?
I notice eCollegePC still has the 5% discount if you enter BLACKFRIDAY at checkout.
Oh boy, thanks for this info, might make it easier to accept the Corsair Case with the 5% extra money.
