    未来が見えなくて怖いから
    未来が見えてしまって悲しいから

    Will the mid tower fit everything? Even if it will you might want a full tower. And I'd go with Windows 7 if I were you.
    Click the 'Thanks' button at the bottom right if I helped you in some way or if you're a good person looking to thank me for no reason

    I bought them. Mining is for noobs.

    And the Define R4 is quite nice. I don't need a custom loop, I only plan to OC to 4.0GHz.
