@ Stevie .. UD3P is £10 quid cheaper here mate Scan
Yeah I saw that alright, thanks, the only problem is the AKASA 4850 coolers are more expensive so it evens out.

Does anyone know if the Akasa AK-VC03 are any good.

Ah another brit. The Akasa cooler is ok, nothing special. If you need to check out any other stuff: www.ebuyer.com

do not get MSI. they have poor customer service and poor quality control. i can almost guarantee that that mobo will have a defect of some sort that will bite you later... mine has 2 dead ram slots and a temperamental ram slot as well. don't shoot yourself in the foot by building a rig on a gimped motherboard

MSI = epic fail.

I'm Irish hahahaha

Can you suggest a good 4850 cooler, also does it matter that much if the cooler doesn't exhaust out of the case as I see alot of them don't.

Have you had a look at the Accelero you should be able to attach a fan too which really helps.

Here's a read up Accelero

I know hahaha, its cause I broke my x48 2 weeks ago and have to wait till the end of the month to get paid, now I keep changing my mind but YES I've decided 100% i'm getting the UD3P now just need to decide on a 4850 cooler.

I was looking at reviews for the Akasa AK-VC03 and every review was good also all customers seem happy with it the other option is Arctic Cooling Accelero Twin Turbo.

I'd love to put something in the sytem to increase performance but don't think I'll find anything that will do that for 70 euro.

Get the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P. When you get more money, get the copper top for the GTX.
