Yes, I know, what a complex question for a first time post. Regardless...here goes.
AMD 7750 BE
Tt Armor + MX tower
Asus M3A79-T Mobo
By my measurements it looks like a cooler no taller than 150mm (give or take a mm or so) will fit this case before hitting the 230mm side fan, so the normal recommendations (HDT1283, TRUE, Sunbeam CC) are out. I am also hoping to spend no more that $50. I had originally decided on the Tt Max Orb, but have read so many conflicting reviews, and I don't think it would stand up to much overclocking. So my first question is to ask if anyone has good suggestions?
Second Question, with the huge side fan blowing into the case, would a top down cooler be more capable of taking advantage of this, or would a tower style (that will fit) still be the way to go?
I greatly appreciate any help.
