    And just look at this beauty....

    Yeah I realize it's a 580 Lightning Special Edition..... but whatever. :3
    Haha, that beauty is going into my PC when I can get the funds for it. I read every single page of the reviews, and not one bad review. Mind you, it was 2 days ago when I did this, so there could be a few bad apples in there. But the color scheme, all the good reviews and the 3GB...its gorgeous.

    Not to be an ass here, but this isn't really what the topic is for.

    If you need help with a build you are better off making a new thread, instead of derailing this one

    Derailing? I'm asking upgrade advice and will post when I get it thus continuing the purpose. There weren't any builds being discussed so I'm seeing this as a non-issue.

    Stay on topic and let the moderators decide if a thread is derailing or not. If you want to come with input; use the report function or PM a mod.

    We are pretty lenient in this thread and allow a fairly broad discussion as long as it can be related to the original topic. If you have any questions or inquires specific to your (future) build it is better to create a new thread in Computer Build Help. Also, for off-topic discussion there are other forums such as Off-Topic and Fun Stuff to consider.

    I spose derailing was not the correct word for it. Just thought that the thread was started with the intention of showing your system in combination with pictures, not discussing upgrades.

    But as you said, I am not in the position to judge what is appropriate or not

These chips are designed to last for years and years under those temps
    75c isn't too hot. You need a temperature of 106c before the CPU stops, but wear and tear is going to become relatively prominent when going over 90 for a distinct period.

    Suffice to say, this thread is the closest thing to "off-topic" of the forum.

    It's practically silent vs the Frio at full speed.

    Reference coolers (single radial fan usually) are usually louder though, mostly because the fan has to spin faster than a dual fan/larger heatsink setup to keep the GPU cool.

    They are most likely real, but whether he owns it or not is a whole different question :P
