Re: Question about installing an SSD in an Antec P183 V3 Cas

theres no difference in the cables.

that doesn't stop some companies from charging more for a label with a 6 instead of a 3 though.

Re: Heatsink Dilemma!

The suggestion to replace my RAM seems rather superfluous, as the nh-c14 would seem to have enough clearance for the Dominator and the Ripjaw and Mushkin seem to have heatspreaders and be equally as high, so I presume you're just trying to get the economy going again by encouraging me to spend mone...

other than whats been mentioned, the lian li pc-a04 looks like it might be worth considering.

lian li also has a few htpc cases, but they're very very pricey.

Re: Might be out of my league

you can plug 3pin fans directly into 4pin fan headers. they're keyed, so you can only plug them in one way, no mistakes will be made. What happens when you plug a 3 pin non-PWM fan into a 4 pin header intended for a PWM fan? Generally speaking, it depends of the board firmware: most MSI and ASUS ma...

I figure on only being able to use one fan (only one CPU fan header on this MB that I can see) that cooler should come with a little adapter to allow you to plug both fans into the same motherboard header. I think the fan is 3-pin and the header is 4-pin. What kinds of problems would that present? ...
