I know this sounds like a irrelevant comparison but i've got a dilemma (although i think i've made my mind up)

I'm currently using this case :
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/115479

I wasn't into overclocking / overall computer tweaking until i joined OCN however i did used to game so i thought this case was enough..

Anyway, i'm going to get a phenom II processor and i was going to get a megahalem then i realised, it's about 40mm too long!

So i thought, i've got 2 choices..

1. Use a smaller heatsink (is there a small heatsink that would support quad core overclocking?)

2. Get the HAF 932 and see how the airflow + stock run.

I must admit, i'm leaning towards the HAF but that's cause OCN make it so irresistible!

Recommend one that will be useful for overclocking quads around the 4Ghz mark? I've not had much luck searching and WC is too expensive.

I read the HAF 932 is the 1200 equivalent, and the HAF's around £30 cheaper.

Also, from personal preference, i prefer the HAF in looks. But thanks for the idea

I just measured up, 120mm should fit with around 10mm gap from sidepanel. Would that be ok?

Ps, don't mean to sound ungrateful but they don't sell that on ebuyer or scan
