  • Noctua NH-D14 - Been having some heat problems after I tried cleaning up my computer yesterday... also haven't changed thermal paste since I got the damn thing... hopefully I can try overclocking too if I can fit this huge thing in my computer tongue.gif

It will fit, perhaps pending RAM height.

Good choices, that's a wise upgrade path. Don't worry about not getting the Pro version of the SSD - the standard is almost as fast in read speeds, which is what your SSD will primarily be used for in the end.

Good luck with the overclock, and let us know how it all goes for you!

I have been away for a week, as I do Civil War Reenacting. Even though it isn't cheap, those were great choices. I hope you enjoy the upgrades. thumb.gif
