After reading through the Asus Pro and MSI GD65 its a hard call between those two... Both fit budget even with a more expensive cooler ie V6GT or a BeQuiet.

Not much in it really. Coin toss maybe lol

Thanks!
I'm not sure but I think someone says it blocks the RAM a bit. One, maybe two slots.
You can always get a Hyper 212+.

The build looks great with the two PCIe x8 on the motherboard.

I would recommend a tad better RAM though. Ripjaws, HyperX etc.. However, the ones you listed are decent ones.

Thanks for the link! Good read, so possible blocking of ram slots but possible ram can be fitted prior to cpu, downside is any problems with ram means cooler may need to come off.

Smaller cooler option, how well does the 212+ compare to these cooler monsters like the BeQuiet and the V6GT?

Think for the price difference the MSI board wins, cheaper with just as much to offer, less SATA ports but that's ok there is enough for my system. Plus MSI and 212+ would allow for a 30GB SSD for my Windows 7 Tiny install.

I belive the Hyper 212+ would be way more bang for the buck.
It should be 10C from the Noctua NH-D14.
However, I was not able to find a direct comparison between the V6GT and the 212+, but according to this, the Hyper 212+ should be around 5-3C hotter than the V6GT.

The MSI board and SSD with the 212+ seems like a good choice btw !

I think thats my system decided on then. The SSD will be great with my Tiny 7. I have it on an acer revo with a standard 5700rpm 2.5 160HDD and it boots up in 50 seconds. On a SSD boot time should be down quite a bit! But we shall see.

Thanks for help!
