I would see if you can get a WD 1TB Blue (WD10EZEX) over the Barracuda though.

Thank you for all your help i will look into that now

I can get a Western Digital WD Blue 1TB for €48 which is the same price as the Seagate Barracuda i heard that the Seagate is a faster drive, but the WD will last longer

Seagate is fine, but I am more partial to WD myself.
In either case you should remember to backup your work. thumb.gif

The WD Blue has a faster Average Read/Write Speed than the Barracuda though.

I think the macho is a better low-noise cooler. Big, spaced out fins means the fan doesn't have to work too hard. Other Thermalright coolers might perform slightly better if you're willing to tolerate more noise.

IMHO you should get the 140mm version. Your case is certainly big enough, it's quiet, and thermalright's 140mm fans are quite good.

Sorry, I'm on a super slow phone ATM.

http://www.hardwareversand.de/Intel+AMD/158732/Sonderposten%3A+Thermalright+HR-02+Macho+Rev.A+%28BW%29.article
http://www.hardwareversand.de/Intel+AMD/158755/Special+item%3A+Thermalright+HR-02+Macho+Rev.A+%28BW%29.article

All 3 of those look exactly the same to me, but 2 are just as much as the 120mm version for whatever reason. Nothing wrong with the 120mm version, which is still much better than a 212+, but the 140mm fan will be a bit quieter for the same price biggrin.gif

As I said, it should clear your motherboard, and the R4 is really wide case.

There's also a "PCGH edition" for a bit more, but I don't know why it's different.

EDIT: the paste it comes with should be fine. Thermalright actually makes some really good TIM, though I'm not sure what comes with it.

If it doesn't work, Arctic MX-2 or MX-4 and Promilitek PK-1 are good I think, Coollaboratory liquid ultra is the best. Arctic silver 5 is a bit overpriced.
