so i am looking between these 3 cases.

Cooler master



keep in mind that i will be using this cpu cooler considering i will be leaving room for major overclocking of the cpu when i get a better gpu

I say get this and the Cooler Master Centurion 5, even if you're going to wait for overclocking, the 120mm version is the version to get.

And if you can afford it, go for this case instead, it's like the CM690 posted above, but IMO at least, better in terms of air-flow, once you add another few fans, etc.
I'm with The Master Chief on this one CM/RC 690 is the absolute bomb. Hands down winner.

For your CPU cooler, if you have a little extra money, get the HDT1283, or if you feel the need for a bold through kit, the 1283 Dark Knight.
Get that $45 one instead, it's leaps and bounds better than the Centurion 5, the 590 is more expensive and you may as well get the better cooler.
wow, that cm is phenominal.
its prolly what i will pick.
i am on a budget as far as it all goes though.
how much better is that cooler than the one i have picked out?
In short... quite a bit.

Way better airflow and better build quality are the most important reasons.
120mm fans are quieter than 92mm fans as well.

The S1283, on lower TDP CPUs, gets around the same performance as a TRUE.

Mine keeps my Dual Core under 60c load in Australian Summer (Crappy ambients)
would either be able to keep a Kuma 2.7 athlonX2 OC'd to about 3.2-3.4 at legit temps without having to watch it like a baby?
