Q. visitor asked, i havent seen that one, but I've seen a similar one. The hotswap bay is kind of cool, but one of those features that I'd never use.. i've looked at that one, It looks a little nicer than the 88R, but I'm not sure I could justify the doubling of price.. yes, that's what i'm looking at right now

Richard L.
Hey there, what awesome gaming gear are you planning on getting from Newegg today?
case, ddr4, cooler
Richard L.
sweet
what processor do you have?
6600k
Richard L.
and do you want a full size case?
great stuff there :-)
mATX
liking the 88r
Richard L.
ok
so youre going for small huh?
small but not tiny
yup
Richard L.
ok
cool
i know that that one is out of stock
but have you seen it?
and what do you think about it?
i havent seen that one, but I've seen a similar one. The hotswap bay is kind of cool, but one of those features that I'd never use.
Richard L.
ok
cool
is this one better?
i've looked at that one, It looks a little nicer than the 88R, but I'm not sure I could justify the doubling of price.
Richard L.
the better stuff are usually more expensive
and that one has tons of space for different cooling options
yes, that's what i'm looking at right now
Richard L.
it seems to have enough space at the top for a dual closed loop liquid cooler
Top: One hydraulic bearing 140mm Silent Series R2 fan, 1000RPM speed (included); One 120/140mm fan (not included); One 120mm fan (not included)
so it can hold 3 120 mm at the top
I guess it could hold a custom loop.
Richard L.
yup
definitely
huh. That is enticing.
Richard L.
so are you interested in a custom liquid cooler or a closed loop cooler?
I'd like to go custom loop eventually. I like the options this provides.
Richard L.
this for a single sized radiator
Can't have something that small.
Richard L.
LOL
ok
better?
so what's the difference between the h105 and h100i gtx?
this is my motherboard BTW.
Richard L.
will that fit in the smaller case?
yep, mATX
Richard L.
ok
cool
im checking the differences now ok
at this point I really am most in need of RAM. Everything else I have besides case and cooler. I can use a stock intel cooler for the time being from my old 1150 cpu
Richard L.
ok
how much ram are you trying to get?
8 or 16.
I just want it to match my motherboard
preferably silver
Richard L.
the 105 has a thicker radiator
so better heat dissipation
LOL @ the match my MoBo comment
ok
give me a few moments to look that up for you ok?
yeah
Richard L.
cool
thanks
check it out ;-)
how do those look?
the TridentZ are so nice
Richard L.
yup
but I'd feel dumb paying a $30 difference for aesthetics
Richard L.
LOL
well
The other silver ones are nice
Richard L.
did you look at the others i showed you?
and I could add another set of red ones for a nice contrast
Richard L.
and those are actually very fast
so the 30$ difference isnt for nothing
yeah but I don't do any work that would yield quantifiable results from having higher speeds
Richard L.
well
what type of work do you do?
this PC is for fun and leisure.
Richard L.
ok
so gaming and maybe some editing
but nothing crazy.
Richard L.
faster memory makes the computer itself faster
not for anything specific
the system will just be snapier
yes, it will be. but the question is how much so?
Richard L.
it will be noticable for the extra 30$
okay, now that i have options in a few categories, I was looking at power supplies.
Richard L.
cool
do you have a brand prefrence?
not particularly.
Richard L.
ok
and what gpu are you getting again?
at the moment i have a windforce 7950
holding out for 14nm
Richard L.
ok
how does this look?
10 year warranty ;-)
hmm.
Richard L.
yup
ok
how do all of those look
youll be pretty good with any of those :-)
thanks.
Richard L.
anytime
my laptop is about to die, btu thanks for all of your help
