Don't get the NH-D14. It's a really tight fit with GPUs that have a backplate. Mine scuffed the backplate on my 6990 and nearly scuffed my GTX 590.

It's a nightmare in a SFF case (not capacious bigger mATX cases, but real SFF mATX), though it cools pretty well.

As I've posted before to many people that think that monster Noctua's are all too big ... get the MINI Noctua like I did ... just as good a quality and cools almost as well at 2/3rds the size. smile.gif GREAT for SFF builds thumb.gif or if you don't want your hands all cut up and bruised after trying to install it biggrin.gif

Get the Mini Noctua " Noctua NH-U9B SE2 "  ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608016

Another GOOD option is the COOLER MASTER Hyper212+ evo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099 , but ADD a second FAN to it wink.gif as you can see it's a little smaller yet, but it cools well, is cheap, and clears EVERYTHING ! the GPU the RAM the anything else you cram in there !

Trust me, you'll clear 60 on MW3 all day every day without even overclocking the CPU.

With that build you should handle Skyrim and SWTOR perfectly well. I'd say close to maxed out settings on all of them thumb.gif

Can someone advice me a case? I dont want to big, but one thats still able to fit a medium/large GPU card.
I got my eye on these cases:
300

or this one300

or this one 288

or this one 496

Most cases with sidefans dont fit because of my hp212+ cpu cooler. Or is a sidefan that much better for cooling?
My budget is in the range of the storm enforcer..
