Need advice for cpu cooling!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just got the i5 2500k and an asus Maximas IV gene mobo-

I want to oc my cpu to about 4.6-5ghz. Can you recommend me a cooler and a case that would fit the cooler. Also the maximas mobo is a microatx board so it doesn't have plenty of rooms. I am also getting a gtx 670 sli on that board. So what is the best way I can utilise my money to get the best cooling device and a case?

I was looking at this one- http://www.mwave.com.au/sku-16011494-Thermaltake_Overseer_RX_I_Full_Tower_with_HDD_Docking_Station_USB_3_0_Ports_No_P

That case will be fine..
can you get something like a XSPC 750 RAsa RX240 or RS240 kit in aust?
that should get you arround to 5GHz and will fit in the case as its full tower smile.gif
