Alright. Also, the authorization failed.

"This failed authorization may have resulted from an invalid debit or credit card number, incorrect expiration date, insufficient funds or exceeding a daily limit."

I think I have a 300$ limit on my card, although I was sure it worked online. Sigh. I'll have to see if I can use my dad's, then pay him back.

Edit: Yep, that's it. I tried it again:

"Payment Declined

The card issuer has declined to authorize payment."

I hate my bank.



None.

Check the thermal roundup reviews Johnny, OCZ out performs the MX-2.

You can hand me all the reviews all you want but based on personal experience, I do not see much of a temp change between using Mx-2 and OCZ.

US average is 12 c / kWh. 5 hours of computer use costs 12 cents. 30 minutes of dryer use costs 24 cents.

Average does not work with power because electric bills are usually on tiered structure that increase cost rate as you use more energy. (I pay partial on tier 2 sometimes tier 3 :flamer: )
(how can average work? most people pay tier 1)
And even if that number was true .12 x 365 = $43.8 (I dont know how you value your dollar but thats alot to me)

200 W/70% = 286 W. 200/80% = 250 W. 286-250 = 36 W. 36 W * 5 h = 180 Wh. 180 Wh/day * 365 days * 12 cent/kWh = $5.72. Excuse me if I'm unimpressed, especially considering my power is $.09/kWh.

Alright, I'm going to burrow my father's card. One last thought before I finalize this:

The monitor I'm buying: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254040

I have never used Hanns-G, and I've noticed quite a few reviews report dead pixels. You can't return it unless there are several DPs. Are you positive this is a good recommendation?



None.

The sword and the faith

I stake my reputation on every last component. And if there are any DPs the reports mostly put them at the edges, so they'd be of little consequence. Honestly if you're worried about 2-3 DPs I can find you something more expensive, but that monitor is an absolute steal.

Alright, thanks for the assurance. I'll take your word for it. :)

For anyone that was going to use this for a build in the near future: don't buy the retention bracket that was mounted. It doesn't fit and was meant for a different cooler. You want the 17751, not the 17753.
