ocz modxstrem pro 700w

But i've read many opinions where people said it's too noise at full speed and often it's unbearable...U are really sure?

Honestly I would go with a good air cooler. Quieter and cool just as well.. and only thing that can go wrong is a fan.. no pump, hoses or radiator to worry about as years go buy.

And while I'm being honest I don't understand spending hundreds on everything else and cheaping out wanting a 30€ CPU cooler. A good CPU cooler can be used for years in builds.

And if you are worried about noise Sapphire Vapor-X 7950 OC is not quiet... even at idle you will for sure hear a meter away and probably anywhere in the room.

And get some low or at least normal height ddr3, not that monster tall garbage.

That's just my opinion and I'm not saying do it my way. wink.gif

Not sure how much €30 is in GBP but the Hyper 212 Evo and Havik 140 are good coolers for around that price.

You can go with the Hyper 412slim for that budget.I saw many good reviews considering the noise level and the performance and it will do the job for you.
Or you can spend some more and get a better cooler,and i think that the D 14 or a corsair h80 are great options too(more expensive also ).

€30 = £25.86 = $40.13

212 are not bad coolers but are definitely not upper level. As a general rule bigger coolers with more pipes cool better and quieter. Some pipes are better than others.. some fins are attached to the pipes better,. some bases are better than others and some fans are better and quieter.. And upper level coolers are £40-70 depending on what's on bargain at the time.

Thermalright True Spirit 140 = ab 43.05€
Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E = ab 57.00€
Noctua NH-D14 = ab 66.41€
Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure = ab €30,91
Alpenfohn K2 = ab €59,90

Some are quite tall. Think 410 is 170mm cpu clearance so all should fit.. if you use RAM that is about 35mm 140mm fans will fit over it. wink.gif

The Thermalright True Spirit 140 (height of 170mm) almost fits in the 410.

Bought this case in white for my new rig as i thought it looked great, i didnt received one in white & black but white & blue but kept as it still looked ok so anyone considering buying make sure you check first with OC. The case fans and layout are great, comes with all screws etc and most of it is easy to setup. I personally struggled to get the fan controllers worked and found out that it was because i had plugged power into both 4 pin moelx connectors and by unplugging the short one it worked great. I have to point out two things about this case though, even though it is a nice looking case and overall pretty good Firstly the Thermalright True Spirit 140 CPU Cooler i ordered scratches the side panel of the case when fitting it back on which i can live with but this is probably due to the height of the HS and also the front panel to CD Drives door is a little cheap & tempormental to say the least, you have to really push in the right place to get it open (theres kind of a!
