    Excited to see how noticeable the performance gains will be. When I saw the 4790k on sale, I couldn't wait any longer.

    What do you guys think I can get for my FX-8120 and Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 if I decide to sell them? Or should I move them to my third rig, which is an HTPC, and sell my APU and it's motherboard?

    Lookie, lookie. I've been threatening to do this for about a year, and today I finally did it - I made the switch to the dark side!

    Picked up the i7 4790K for just $288 plus tax on sale at Fry's....

    Would adding a tube res to the loop help?

    Re: Question about topping of cooling system

    My Glacer always makes a gurgling noise but works fine. Keeps Temps down. Problem is my 8120 is starting to degrade and doesn't oc well anymore.

    They are good cards, I just wish someone made full cover water blocks for them.

    Re: FS US - Cooler Master Glacer 240L

    Yep. They are good cards especially considering how much they cost when I bought them. My only complaint is they run hot under full load so I have to set a fairly aggressive (and loud) fan curve in...

    Aw, but Sandy my Fusion isn't the hybrid model. It's a 1.5L turbo charged 4 banger and it moves out. The Fusion comes with a whopping 5 power trains available, including a hybrid and electric...

    It gets great gas mileage when I stay out of the turbo. How often do you think that happens? Still I'm averaging about 25 MPG even driving the hell out of it. 33 or 34 MPG cruising at 70 on the...

    Re: FS US - Cooler Master Glacer 240L

    You guys have just about convinced me. Should I get an i7-4790K or an i5-4690K? I do mostly gaming, normal day to day stuff, a little video encoding, and overclocking for fun and bragging rights.
