    Heh. Thanks. And I gotta hand it to Corsair... their new fans look sexy, especially with the right lighting and angle. '-'
    Although the rad looks so dusty under the camera. Wtf lol. Can't see remotely the sort of dust or anything on the unit with the naked eye...

    Those are the sp series eh? I got 13 of em sitting in my room ready to be installed on my rads haha. Deffinitely awesome fans!

    With the trim rings i'd reccomend painting em a matte black or glossy black for a little subtle change in contrast if you're going for a blacked out look

    Personally, for the particular system this one fan is going into, I'm thinking of not including the ring. I'm gonna have to find a good angle to really show you why though.

    It looks dirty.. in a good way.

    Probably some finger prints with small dust particles (is that a technical term?).

    What I really like about not having a ring on the fan is the way the blades as a result are 'taller' than the fan. It honestly just looks cool...

    Have you tested if it has any effect on the airflow? It is after all a static pressure concept which could mean the rings work like radiator shrouds.

    Yeah that does look pretty cool i dont imagine it would hamper performance much, if at all.

    I haven't tested it, nor am I really planning to.

    The komplett computer costs $7000, although it comes with Quad SLI 690's, 3960x & 2x 240GB SSD's IIRC.

    The case alone costs ~$450-500

    Overestimated the price, but I wouldn't recommend the case to anyone since it's mainly catered to people who want design over usefulness.

    thats pretty close to mine, but lacks the soundcard, and 5 hard drives, its short on the PSU, and has less and lesser quality ram

    the case is $399 here in the US

    so, that rig should be about $700 less than mine in terms of cost, and last time i did the math mine is around $5k to build, so thats a $2k+ mark up,

    finally there is a situation where building it yourself can save you thousands :P

    25% VAT already added to the price.
    Then additional import taxes on the hardware.
    Yeah, things are less expensive in the US. :P

    While I'm trying to be less nazi about this thread, I think we (read: me) are now drifting a bit too off-topic. Chat thread is great! We can talk about anything there.

    What were your issues with the H80? Pump noise or having to resort to faster/louder fans for the fin-density?
