Hey guys I'm geting ready to upgrade the wifes old PC and could use some help with a cooler. Before anyone tells me I know this is a cheap case but it has worked fine for a OC xp 2600 for about 6 years. It will be gutted clear to the fans. Anyways heres what I will be using, need to what will fit and what you recomend. I think thats all you need if you need more info please ask. This is a budget build and I'm geting ready to order parts this week
Thanks for the help.

Hi 6pak... I dont know why you want the XION case but its your choice... i would still recommend an excellent case for the same price or less in Thermaltake V3... its for $45 + $3 shipping in newegg... i can vouch for the case personally its excellent and the best value for money you can get...

as for a cpu cooler on a budget you cant beat the hyper 212+ for $30...

Hyper 212 will fit? Only reason im using the case is I cant afford a new one. Im already getting a antec 650 PS. Wanted to use the 550 antec im using in it now but as stated above its atleast 5 years old. And I dont build untill its absoulutely a must. CPU im getting is AMD 955 and Ill OC to atleast 3.4 using the multiplier, Just wanna make sure I keep it cool for the next 4 or 5 years lol
Just need something that will fit in the case is cheap and works good. And thanks for the help Ill check the 212 now

Oh... i recommended the new case for i though you were gonna buy that Xion case... for the hyper 212+ to fit the case must be atleast 185mm in width without side fan above the cooler... with the side fan then add around 25mm...
