Also the Cooler Master Hyper is a CPU cooler its a pretty good budget cooler.

Push and Pull means you will have 2 fans on your heatsink 1 in the front that will push air trough it and one in the back that will pull the air trough it and blow if to the back.
Makes sense now, haha, thanks!

Would you recon the Noctua is better than the Thermalright? Or is the Coolermaster V8 perhaps better?

The Noctua NH-D14 and Thermalright Silver Arrow are about equal and beat the Cooler Master V8.

Alright, the Noctua it will be! Is the thermal compound provided by the Noctua good enough? Also, thanks for your help.

Good enough for me. Thanks a bunch for all your help.
I am now ordering the Phantom NZXT Case (Black) and the Noctua NH-D14.

It's "rounded". No pins sticking out.

I currently am a owner of the Phantom NZXT and it is an amazing case, the first full tower i have ever had. I have used every fan slot even though the Hyper 212 Plus makes it somewhat difficult to use a side fan.

The stock NZXT fans are actually fantastic fans, not too loud, and push a decent amount of air. I know my 955 idles around 27C and under load 38C-42C. I have 2 top 200's the front intake which blows through the Hyper 212 and then exhausts out the back. The other 200 on the top is an exhaust. The side i had to make an exhaust because Xigmatek 200 fans cannot be used as intake on the side >.<

The other 2 side 120's are intake for the hard drives and then the front 140 is an intake.

If you are looking for excellent airflow for a good price and sleek design go with the NZXT Phantom.

Hope this helps!

Phew.... Ahaha so it looks like these right?

Because the ones with high heatspreaders don't fit under the Noctua NH-D14
