I didn't think about that Gen3. Thank you for the heads up. I'll look for the non-gen3 version then. ^^
Thank you very much for everything.
Right, BF3 and Skyrim sound like good games to put on the SSD. If you have them on the disk you can just move them later if you like.

Roger that. CM 212+ it is then.
No. Do not. If you really want to find a sweet spot between the two find a Thermalright True or Archon. The 212+ is good yes, but you don't seem to be too limited by money so avoid it.

Right. I forgot about that. Stupid mistake. I'll be looking at the Crucial M4 instead of those. And i wasn't planning every single game on the SSD. Only the really hardcore games. :O
1. I don't think you should apologize to him as he kind of said that rude.
2. You still could get that 8GB Kingston SSD and use it for SSD Caching if you get a board with the Z68 chipset.

Yeah, if price is not a matter then you shouldn't get the 212+. However, the 212+ managed to stay within 10 Celsius of the noctua Dh-14 even though it was 50$ cheaper(EDITL in this test:http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling/819568-review-noctua-nh-d14-vs-coolermaster.html). Still, you would be able to overclock the same with both fans.

Agreed.

I'll keep in mind the Thermalright Archon, it seems pretty decent. Thank you for showing me more options. ^^

1. Technically, i didn't apologize. Though it was kinda harsh but i guess it's pretty much what to be expected from the internet. However, this is not a general case. There are awesome people who help without any sort of hard feelings. Like you. Thanks. :3
2. RIGHT! I could do that. Interesting. However, what's the recommeneded amount of GB for SSD caching? Is any number ok? And yes i am getting a z68 board. ^_^

Thanks for that info. If i run out of money, i know that the CoolerMaster will be there for me.

Welcome :3

I actually have no idea how much space you would need for SSD caching. Though, I don't think it could be too much. It would only be caching things that have been used a lot or recently. If it did fill up to 8GB, it might only be because it's using all of what it has instead of a set amount. (I hope that made sense. I'm sleepy and losing my mind. )

What, Intel SRT SSD caching? I thought they said 20GB min and 60GB max!
And there would be no point trying to cache a SSD with another SSD.

Yes! Numbers! Thank you!

I think he's using the caching with his 2TB HDD.

Aww. You went and checked it. Thanks man. Much appreciated. Don't worry, it didn't affect my decision dramatically. xD
I'll still be getting my SSD and everything. ^^

I still need help with the casing though.
