  1. I will definitely use safety gear, already thought of that. I could do that but I really want to keep the cost down as low as possible and buying two sheets of glass would probably be cheaper than paying someone to do it. Plus I'm a big DIYer
  2. I decide that I'm going to go with glass since it doesn't seem that hard to cut or drill into. Would glass like this work? http://www.homedepot.com/p/24-in-x-36-in-x-0-125-in-Clear-Glass-92436/300068389
  3. I want to make a full, not partial, glass window for my Define S and I am wondering what material should I use to make it with. I could do Glass but that will cost at least around $100 just for it. I am wondering if they is anything scratch resistant plastic that I could use instead. Also I am wondering how I should mount it. I am thinking 4 screws into the corner of the case like a lot of tempered glass cases do. I would put some sort of padding around the case to protect the window.
  4. Make sure you have a good molex to sata adapter.
  5. The fastest RAM that is 8GB or greater. RAM speed can make a difference during gaming.
  6. A Ek Preadtor 360, currently the best AIO on the market. Or just buy a custom loop kit from EK and replace the rad with a 560MM one and get 140MM fans.
  7. The Fuma one of the best HSF's on the market at a unbeatable price and if you tighten it right it will even out perform the D15 by a fair amount.
  8. A Sytche Fuma. Also the amount of heatpipes doesn't always equal performance. The Fuma is a great example. Its capable of beating a Noctua D15 which is taller and has more heatpipes.
  9. Define hot. If its hot to the touch that is to be expected and is nothing to worry about. Now if the VRM is running at like 95C that is something to worry about.
  10. Its within budget. http://pcpartpicker.com/products/case/#m=229&t=3&u=1&X=0,7645&sort=a8&s=1 There is also the Pro M which is similar to the P400 internally but has a different front, a 5.25 bay,supports 360mm rads on top, and while I am not sure I am wanting to say it has no LED controller.
  11. The Phanteks P4000. All around better than the S340.
  12. I have a Fuma but no other dual tower coolers or 240mm/280mm AIO coolers to compare it to unfortunately I really don't hear any clicking from the fans and they overall are pretty silent at full speed but then again I haven't measured the dba and I have a bunch of other fans.
  13. Yes. Also the fluid inside of them does too when the performance can drastically drop off.
  14. http://www.overclockers.com/scythe-fuma-heatsink-review/ According to this review its only about 2 dba louder than a D15 with both at full speed while the Fuma cooling about 4C better. In that review you linked two they didn't run the D15 at low speed. Also mounting pressure is key for its performance which is likely in the frostytech review its behind the D15 performance wise. True but the D14 is still ahead.
