Check I'm not being a doofus, please!

Heya Tom's!

Just running my new rig past another dozen pairs of eyes to make sure I'm not overlooking something.

Can anyone tell me if a Hyper 212+ will fit in here without blocking the PCIe slot? I'd love it if it could...

Good for you. Your case is hideous, and larger than mine. You wasted money on both your ram and your processor, likely so you could brag about them. My i5 is going to end up significantly faster than your processor, due to a very good phase design on the motherboard and future liquid cooling. My ram is going to be miles faster. Oh... and my 670 will max nearly every game out there at 120 frames a second.

So... Seeing as how I made a build that's faster, smaller, and in all likelihood cheaper, perhaps you're the one who should be trying to get on my level.

Have fun! Oh and other guy whose hating, you do realize I run the same, if not better FPS then you with that poopy overpriced 670? Wanna know why it runs good in BF3? because they bribe people who make the game to configure it to run best on their cards, wanna know why they do that? Because the cards themselves are sh** and overpriced.

You said your ram is faster, you do realize ram has no speed differences in gaming? (almost), except when you consider 1333 and 2400 or whatever it is, 1333 actually does like 3fps better in BF3.

No, about that speed thing you were saying about my CPU.

Let me remind you this is an i7 3770k, it has 8 threads, and recently the radeon cards started experimenting with hyperthreading support, gaining around 7 FPS using it.

ALSOOOO I can overclock using a cheap 212 or so and get faster speeds, yet again.

ALSOOOo how fast can you render, multi-task, and do intensive tasks, buddy? ;)
