    Nice case you have there, keep going :D
    but I would make the wheels smalller or even leave them away.

    just my 2 cents

    yeah decided against the watercooling after talking to Skylined on irc a little bit
    besides no watercooling would make the rc case possible :naughty:

    havent decided which of these heatsinks to get

    Thermalright slk-900A
    or
    Swiftech MCX462-V

    might get some sanding done today if i dont fall asleep (awake all night)

    the thermalright works better with powerful, loud fans, and the swifty works better with low power quiet fans. Depends if you want quiet, or bleeding edge performance

    Wow.. very nice. I have a couple JMC 120mm fans from www.allelectronics.com. they push a good 130cfm. those tornadoes do 99cfm, and are only 92mm.
    A bit more pricey, but quite good. :naughty:

    yup. that was about it :waah: I couldn't beleive it happened like that :waah:
    but then again, I should have known it was coming.. they walways close a thread before it gets to 2k posts (or at least in the test forum)

    but now on topic... the one with the pins (heatsink) should theoritically (my god is my spelling off tonight) because aluminum is better at conducting heat from it to air, than copper is. and copper is better at getting heat from other objects. Or something like that. it should be a better cooler. but the other one looks as though it has more surface area. You need to see some benchmarks/reviews and decide from that. or decide which you think is prettier. (with the default stuff, or an led fan (with leds disconnected or not)

    well according to this post by bigz if it were made of all copper it should perform better and there does seem to be more surface area overall
    besides i may just go with the cheaper one
