First minor issue ... Hookbag.ca sent me the wrong RAM. Hopefully the RMA process won't be painful. BTW, Beer, are you using the fan that comes with the case or just the CPU Cooler?
Oh, I also have one of these, assume this should work fine? Though it's big as hell.

i dunno about Hookbag.ca in general,
i feel their new in the business,
no the typical place i'd buy stuff tho...
but if u paid using PayPal, should be well covered if anything.

Beer40 does use the fan that comes with the case,
he set it to lowest speed using the controller in the back of the case...

however, he could have also removed it as his Big Shuriken is all he needs for cooling.

again, u got the wrong Power Brick specs...
i made a thread that xplains exactly the brick needed...

I am using the fan cage.... so yes its at the lowest setting in the back.... take a look at my first page on my build it says it all... temps and stuff.....

yes it can be used with out it...... but I do like the cage fan.... and its quiet too.... do you need another power brick? im using only the 65 watt that came with the case...

Was just saying I already had that brick on hand as I originally purchased it when I was thinking I'd go a PicoPSU route and another case. So was curious if it could be used if in fact I required something more than the 65W one that's all.

I may end up buying the 90W brick, but as Beer40oz mentions, it seems to be working fine with the 65oz. So I'm just curious to see if I ever run into issues with a 65w one, just for fun. The added cost doesn't bother me.
