Greetings!

I have the following system specs and want to find a good cpu cooler and case. i want to spend about $100 on the case and $100 on the cooler. What are your thoughts on the CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series. Keep in mind i just want something nice and cool and i DO NOT plan on Overclocking.

For whatever reason i have my heart set on this CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series. As far as a case goes. Since i have video cards in Crossfire i find that the Mid tower isnt cutting. I want a case that will also keep things nice and cool.

I am a hardcore gamer, WoW, BF, CoD etc... so i tax a system pretty hard. I am not against a MID tower again, but would prefer a FULL, is i have to spend a little more then i can. OH and what are you takes on upgrading from DDR2 to DDR3 RAM? Is it worth it???

AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb 3.0GHz

i would go with the Corsair cooler, it is a nice one for the price.

As for the Case, i would go with the Cooler Master HAF 922, it is sold as a mid-tower case but it is HUGE and bigger than some full tower cases. It is also liquid cooling friendly as well as really good cable management and definately big enough to fit 2 x 5870's. So, with this case, you will be all set.
