How bout the Phanteks PH-TC14PE? it has nice colors. Or could u recommend me some? Noctua d14 is preety ugly lol.. but some say the Phanteks can only handle the FX8350 to only 4ghz+, not more than 5ghz.. well, that sucks..

right now i've narrowed down to CM Stryker and Phantom 410. the reason i didnt chose C70 is because of the small holes in the window panel.. But im leaning towards the Phantom 410 as it looks futuristic compare to the Stryker. and i heard alot of good thinsg such as good managment cable for the phantom 410 and good airflow as well.

Please do! TQVM appreciate it!
The H100i's problems are attributed to stupid people. Like I said, my H100 is whisper quiet and doesnt leak. The quiet issue is related to the fact that people are cheap and dont change the stock fans that come with it and the leaking is for people who A: (95% of the time) bend a pipe the wrong way or put lots of stress on the connections B: (3% of the time) Unit leaks from factory, box will be a bit wet C:(2% of the time) Unit is defective in the case.
Corsair has a huge warranty on this and if it does leak in the system, they will replace not only the h100, but anything the water took with it.

The Phanteks should hold a 5GHz FX-8350 just fine, and yes the Noctua D14 is ugly as sin, but it works, just like Buckley's biggrin.gif

Now im having second thoughts.. on whether to get Intel build or AMD. as AMD build consume too much power... for the CPU, im really confusde to get whether the 8350FX or i5-3570k/i5-4670k.. I dont treat overclocking as my hobby, just to 'upgrade' so i can play the lateset game smoothly.

i5-3570k/4670k both would make your build more expensive, but if you dont plan on overclocking that much then it would be the faster option.

The difference on the power bill would be negligible, since the GPUs eat a large chunk of the power anyway.
If you live in a colder region then the extra heat would only help to heat your home...otherwise if you live in the desert go Intel :-P

Either way you will be happy with your build. Just run the finalized AMD build (including all the parts you've picked) by us before you buy it. Just in case (wish I did that haha).

Also don't worry about being common, common just means its proven to be good and you're more likely to be happy with it. You will still be happy with the 8350 though so don't worry about it. Get Corsair H100i, overclock to around 4.8-5GHz (check around on the forum for good tutorials)
