    I went ahead and got the Enermax 430W EG465P-VE(FCA) Whisper.

    I have a question about about cooling. I have the Volcano 7 and the fan in the Power Suply. What else should I get? I know I need a couple more fans, but some people have 7+ fans in their case. I just don't see whre they would fit. I got the Lian-Li case that was reviewed here recently, what fans should I get for that?
    Also, where do I get that stuff to put between my processor and the Volcano 7?

    Also, I have all my parts ordered, and everything is shipping except my case. I'm not sure whats happening with my case. I purchased it from PC PitStop, and haven't been able to find a place to get the status of my order. I got a confirmation email, but thats it. I emailed their sales but haven't gotten a reply yet. Has anyone dealt with this company?

    Thanks,
    Justin K

    Arctic Silver is a popular Thermal Interface Material. That's what you're referring to as the stuff you place between the processor and your volcano 7. Check the link below for more information. I have used Kdcomputers many times.. great company. They're based in wisconsin and their shipping is prompt. They also keep you informed step-by-step as to the status of your order.

    I also have the Enermax 431W EG465P-VE(FCA) Whisper Quiet PSU. I have no complaints :) I bought a clear PSU cover for it as well.. looks sweet.

    As for PCPitStop.. I haven't used them, but I went ahead and checked what www.resellerratings.com had to say about them. Most people there seem to have a pretty good impression of them.

    A lot of us get the Volcano 7+ because its the best value/performance HSF out there atm and in most cases only needs to be run on a medium fan speed (nice and quiet). ;)
