I really do not know which one i should buy because the difference in price is like 1$, what i'm going to use it for is recording games etc, so i need a fast writing speed and i got one of those 2 recommended :p
Seagate barracuda 7200 14 1tb
Seagate barracuda 7200 12 1tb

Also is there a huge difference if you got 1 or 2 fans in air cooling system, thinking of one of those two but idk if it makes a huge difference if you got 1 or 2 :p

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Looks like the first HDD has more cache than the other. Go with the first hard drive.

Secondly water cooling is basically pointless and only runs the risk of leaks. Keep the 3rd party cooler on your PC.

Are you buying a new PC? If so please list all of the parts before buying.

What CPU do you have?

If you want to OC then I would recommend buying a 3rd party air cooler and not a water pump.

Hard drives:
Seagate 7200.14 is the latest version of Seagate internal hard drives. Replaces the Green, 7200.12, and XT lines. Main differences for the 1TB versions: 7200.12 has two 500GB platters; 7200.14 has a single 1000GB platter. Less rotating mass means lower power consumption and less vibration and noise while in operation.

Corsair Hydro coolers: The H100i will give better cooling and will be a bit louder in operation. Your main deciding factor should be whether or not you have the space available in your case to mount the double sized (240mm) radiator.

i got AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor (6CPUs), ~3.2GHz (taken from dxdiag)

And what do you mean when you say third party air cooler, English is not my native language x)

Thanks for the advice on the HDD.
But would you recommend air cooling over water cooling for overclocking or how's your view on that? :)

I believe he means a branded, other than oem (AMD) heat sink/fan such as Zalman or Thermaltake.

I really have no preference of one over the other; I also hold no prejudices against either.

I've sold and/or installed several dozen of each and in my experience, even the least expensive self-contained liquid cooler will match or exceed the performance of the best air coolers, and do so much quieter and without hanging a huge block of aluminum off the motherboard.

Difference between 2 AGP cards(EVGA GeForce 6200)?
Is there a big difference between these 2 EVGA GeForce 6200 AGP cards? 512-A8-N405-KR 512-A8-N403-LR From what I've read, it seems they're almost identical. If there's not a huge difference, I'd rather just go with the one that's $10 cheaper. Can anyone tell me the differences between them?
