top notch

bad choice, enermax sux. get a papst/panaflo fan. you can use a rheobus or control the fan voltage in the BIOS (don't know if all nf² boards support this)

great stuff, with some luck you've got BH-5 chips


Mice: Logitech MX310 Optical Mouse 1 € 37,40

are you kidding me? such a good machine, and such a crappy keyboard? get yourself a logitech keyboard and an MX500!

Total: € 1440 (Budget is €1450)

owkey, I'd spend some more money on the keyboard. they usually last longer then your keyboard

I'm happy with a normal crappy keyboard , maybe I buy later a Logitech special edition black or something , I find them very expensive . I replaced the Enermax with a PAPST 3412NGL 92mm 35.9CFM (1950RPM) RPM monitor en connector, a good choice? Can it run on higher rotation speeds than 1950 rpm?

that's right, you need a little more juice on that cpu fan... and if it's too loud, you ncan switch it up to a nice rheobus.

please take an mx700 mouse, it's only 30 euro's more then that 310 and the difference is extreme, the mouse is simply astonishingly good...

Maybe the MX310 is good enough for the TS. It sure is good enough for me! I don't need al those knobs like on the MX500. And I find the MX700 too heavy, the extra weight of those batteries can also be bad for people who have RSI.

I just threw my MX700 out in favor of an MX500.
That thing weighs a ton, and if you are used to unweighted corded mice, that's impossible to work with. (in all none cordless mice is a weight, I usually remove them to increase my respons time by decreasing momentum)
The accuracy is the same anyway between the entire MX line.

But a good keyboard is more recommended.

Bon't know THAT monitor, I know we have the 17" model in stock as a cheap verion. As every computer user will tell you, do not underestimate the screen.
