Does the HR-01 plus need a bolt through kit or is that already part of the package so to speak? I'm a bit confused about that.

I belive this article tells it best. Remarkable is the drop in performance going from PC4200 (533) to PC5300 (667), even with tighter timings PC5300 can not catch up with PC4200 PC5300 [...] should be avoided when running Core 2, except when you plan to overclock.

Current hsf designs take into account the nature of the fans. If this was standard and the heatsinks were designed for it, I bet it could be nice. Were it will really shine though, is component cooling. I would love to have two of these, one for the fan blowing on my harddrives and the other blowing...

Unless you plan to overclock heavily, you could get away with cheaper (slower) memory. A 1:2 ratio is ideal, so 533Mhz / PC4200 without any overclock.

Corsair value select. 533 or 667 for conroe?

Planning on getting 4 x 1Gb modules for my P5W DH Deluxe + E6600. Can't find any comparisons on low end memory though. My thought is that 533Mhz/PC4200 should be enough, since 667Mhz/PC5300 is asynchronous to the bus and would only benefit from the added speed in every third acess cycle. All the ben...

Cables on my PSU would be too short (early S12 version) and reading the forums here, neatness seems to be a problem. Plus I don't think the passive nb cooler on the P5WDH Deluxe (I'm getting that board too) works optimally inverted like that. You will probably get away with it, since the XP-120s dow...

What do you do now? As I don't like the inverted nature of the P180 my choices are pretty much limited to the P150 for good silencing. Even a 92mm fan will generate enough airflow for the drives and at 5-6V it will be near silent. I'm also counting on a positive sucking over the drives from a HIS d...

A while ago I was thinking like you, going with all 120mm fans.
The conclusion I came to at the time was a coolermaster stacker. Depending on where you live you can even order one modded if you need it

The Antec P150 (or solo, if you prefer it more black) will fit four drives if you don't use the suspension. I'm planning to have three in it myself.

Here you can see the clearance problem with the Ninja and the 'A' memory slots (the blue ones). It is the thumb-latch for the Ninja's clip that gets in the way.

RD580 boards: Abit AT8 32X vs. Asus A8R32-MVP (with ninja)

Originally planned on getting an Asus A8N-SLI Premium, but the NF4 chipset is a little bit too warm for my liking. The R580 chips seems like a good solution. Pros: [both] Good layout (similar to A8N-SLI Premium), ninja can be ducted to back exhaust. [both] Cooler than NF4 [abit] All fans headers con...

Should work pretty well, but I really suggest a fan at low voltage to be safe. If you do any kind of serious work you'll almost certainly need it.

No, but I won't run any new games so 2d is plenty. The whole thing is going to be expensive, so I'd rather put some more cash into ram than getting an overpowered gpu.
I can always get/upgrade a card later if needed.
