Hey guys I'm new to the board here, what I am working on is a SFF build using the Thermaltake Armor a30 case and the AMD Phenom II x6 1100T processor. I am not really into the gaming scene at all but I do like to have a lot of processing power for compilations (work with a lot of software developing) and what not. It is quiet hard finding a solution for overclocking inside this case without having to go with external water cooling. I have no preference over liquid cooling or air cooling, just the one that performs best and fits. The max heatsink+fan height can not exceed 90mm inside the case. So I am reaching out to you guys to give me your thoughts on the best solution for keeping the system cool with the x6 overclocked to no more than 4.0ghz. Also, I'm not as concerned about noise as I am cooling performance. The case has the following fan dimensions/locations: 1 x 230mm Exhaust on top of case, 1 x 90mm front intake, 2x60mm rear Exhaust.. So I don't really have any places inside to mount a 120MM radiator + fan. I'm limited a bit with this case, but I like the size and the way it looks a lot, but for the most part I like a challenging project that i can enjoy for years to come!! Thanks in advance!
