Hey ya,

Well, The base machine looks cool, the heatsink isn't the greatest. What model is your old drive?

Power supply is more than you'll need unless you're thinking about SLi or something. I'd say you'll be ok with the 750w and put the money you save on a better HSF.

I think the only major thing here for me is using your old drive. How old is it and give us a make and model so we can see if it will hinder your machine dramatically.

Iv read pretty good reviews about the cooler, and i love the way it looks i was thinking of going for the H50, but i really dont like the idea of pulling air in through the back of the case, would only leave the 200mm top case fan as exhaust.

hmmm alright , H50 it is ahaha. I can get one for 50$ on sale right now. Did you use 1 or 2 fans? If I use 2 fans should I buy 2 new fans or use the one that comes with the H50 and one of the case fans? Like the tricool case fan on med as push and the one that comes with the h50 connected to the mobo pulling air in from the outside?

Well you want the two fans to be at the same RPM. It's preferred that all of the specs be the same on the fans so one fan isn't wearing the other out and so on. If you're looking for pure performance then you'd want to get a Delta fan and just use it as push as intake. If you want silence and good static pressure I'd go with a gentle typhoon model (either 1450 or 1850 RPM) as they move a lot of air and are dead quiet even running at full speed. If you're using push/pull you can usually get away with running them as exhaust and not have to worry about the positive pressure issue from running them as intake.
