I'm building a new system. I've been doing some preliminary research, and I think I've decided on the Coolmaster ATC-101 for my case. I need helping devising a strategy to cool my cpu and system. I don't know which PS, internal fans, hs, or hsf to get, or how many for that matter. Money isn't an object, but practicality a degree. So if it were up to you, how would you do it?

BTW, I'm thinking on a TB1.3 with minor ocing, running on an Abit kg7.

Go for an Enermax PS (300-350W should be enough, its up to you) since they are good quality and have a fan intake on the bottom (over CPU). Add a good 80mm for a frontal intake of air (Sunon, thermaltake, Delta), at leats an outtake on the back (besside PS)(you casing supports 2 back fans) an I think your tower has room for a third one on top.

As for HSF, many people seems to say that the Volcano2 is a cheap AND reliable cooler if you are no hardcore overclocker.

if moneys no object and you want a quiet cool case... get the vapochill or the like...

you do not strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
