Prolimatech Mega Shadow/Megahalems definitely, if you want to go on the air cooling side.

If not, then a H50 would do well. Nearly the same performance as a Megahalem.
All you need to ensure is that the amount of air your case intakes is equal to the amount it exhausts.

Okay, so a little looking on Frozen CPU.

OPTION 1:

* Megahalems Rev B.
* Two of these in push/pull
* Maybe take two **** 125X25 fans And make them into shrouds?
Cost - $115

OPTION 2:

* Just do a D14 can call it a day.
Costs 85 bucks.

OPTION 3:

* H50 with the Ultra Kaze 3k
Costs 80 bucks

115 is kinda pushing the limit of sanity when it comes to me and CPU cooling. Could I Get away with 125X25's with shrouds. Maybe some yate loons? Or so those suck too much?

Now we have case cooling. I am not going to bother with the slot loading fans at first. If it is needed sure, but it might just be gilding the Lilly, so to speak. I will definilty get another fan (mostly likely not **** around here and go high CFM delta) for that VGA shroud. Those 280's run far, far too hot.

So I took even more time with this comment sitting here and drew a map:



Any thoughts?

That's an ideal airflow setup. As for the CPU cooler, get the Megahalems and use two of those Panaflo 120mm x 38mm fans for a push/pull setup.

Do you think shrouds would help at all? Or is that just overkill.

They should reduce temps by a few degrees. You can find results here. I don't bother with shrouds though. Just get a 120mm x 76mm fan for that matter.
