Ok so here is the deal I currently have an acer case which is from a computer that was simply bought from the manufacturer. I now want to add some components and replace a few. I want to replace the motherboard with an xfx 750i Sli Extreme Motherboard, the cpu will simply be taken out of the old motherboard (Q6600). In terms of a cooler I had my eye on this one
So now that that is out of the way it is time for the real qustion will this Acer case do if I want to overclock both the Cpu and Ram. I'm not shooting for the stars, but I hope to overclock the cpu to at least 2.8-3.2 Ghz or so.
I also wish to know if the Cpu cooler I wish to purchase will even fit in the case. If you decide that it would be better to buy a new case then please point me in the right direction. I have been thinking something like an Antec 300 if this case will not do.
I'd definitely consider a new case. The Antec 300 is definitely a good choice. I'm assuming you were referring to the cheapest, $60 one. If that's the case, I would consider spending a little more and considering getting the 300 illusion: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
But I love antec cases, so that's where my bias and opinion would be .
As for your G.skill memory, Ripjaw is a very well-known, well-liked, and well-performing series. You won't be disappointed if you do end up getting them. But like you said, there are definitely better deals out there.
