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.

Thanks very much for taking your time to look into this for me for the extra 5e i think ill go with this one http://www.hardwareversand.de/Intel+AMD/67114/Thermalright+HR-02+Macho+Rev.A+%28BW%29.article

and this defiantly will fit my ASUS Z87K motherboard aswell yeah

Nice One

I would stay away from that drive, it's old and not that good. Get two WD 1TB Blue's (WD10EZEX) if you need 2TB or get a 2TB Black (WD2003FZEX)

Cooler Master GM is cheap because its full of third and fourth rate caps and parts

You would be better off returning it can getting a better 450 watts PSU

10 euros more and a much better made unit

This is the 1 part that i haven't been sure off since i got it, the guy at my local store recommend this to me over my choice at the time corsair-cx-series-cx600m-600-watt for the same price €65 but 50 watts less

Does brand really matter when it comes between
Corsair,
Antec,
Fractal,
Seasonic,
Cooler Master,
Zalman

Are they just better because of reputation and personal preference , they all have the standard 80 Plus certs and are all considered top brands by different people, im new to building but have spent 3 months online fingering out what parts and brands to get, i think i looked into it to much but have learned a lot doing so

Brands has zero to do with quality and so does 80 plus

In fact you can find more then one PSU thats 80 plus gold and utter crap

Buying a PSU based on brand is the same as buying a car based on color

Every brand has crap even Corsair and Seasonic

GM is not a crappy PSU its just very cheap for a reason and that reason are third and fourth rate caps and parts used

If you can still return it you should

No it does not need 450 watts thats what they recommend for a peak rated PSU not a continuous rated PSU

Peak rated units can do up to its rated wattage continuous can do its rated wattage 24/7 there is a massive difference
