Looks good. This is a case of homework well done. No suggestions from me and rest assured, the Vengeance is a popular choice. The 212 is not as massive as the Noctua D14, so I expect no problems with the cooling fins on the memory.
I don't know about the D7000 'fix', since I only use regular video cameras. DSLR is way too expensive and cumbersome for me.
Appreciate the feedback, Harm.
I neglected to mention that I have, as yet, no method of backup. Any suggestions?
>no method of backup
Backup of what? Individual files, Boot drive... ???
For individual files and folders, I have a 2Gig USB drive attached and I just use Windows Explorer to copy (USB drive has an on/off switch, so not always on)
For the boot drive, you should buy AND USE software to make a full backup of your hard drive to an external USB hard drive... plus, making step-by-step backups during a new install or major program addition makes it easy to go back a step if something doesn't work
This backup and then restore is, of course, only to the same computer with a new drive (or the same drive as long as you don't mind writing over everything) since doing a restore to a new computer won't work due to Windows and many programs having activation information that is keyed to your hardware (which is why Windows will force you to RE-Activate if you change very much hardware)
The product I use is at http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-linux.htm
Image runs off of a bootable CD via Linux (the Zip you download includes a program to make the bootable CD) and it reads EVERYTHING on the drive, even the hidden registration information, so everything is restored when needed... and you may restore the image to a brand new drive in case of a crash, and not have to re-install anything
Please note that I own no part of Image, and I don't get a referral fee (that is just a plain web link) but I use the program and it has saved me a LOT of trouble when I had a hard drive die... and I was able to restore everything and not have to re-install or re-activate a single program, from Windows on up
Yes, Boot drive, thank you. Looks good.
