Hello,
I just received my Lian-Li PC-7FN case yesterday. I am wondering if anyone can tell me the Corsair can be fitted in this case.
Here is the list for my upcoming build:
Lian-Li PC-7FN case
Intel i7-950
Consair H50
Asus P6X58D-E motherboard
Crucial RAM 2GBx3
XFX Radeon 5770
Seagate 1TBx2 for Raid 0

Yes, it will fit in your case fine. It replaces you 120MM back fan or use it along with the H50 for a push-pull setup.

Thanks, tecm034. Do you have any other CPU coolers you would like to recommend? I might get another 5770 and two more harddrive in the future.

Thanks again,

Actually, I would go with the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ & air cooling. I don't think the H50 is worth it compared to the "higher level" air coolers. The Hyper can pretty much match the cooling of the H50 at 1/2 the cost. You compare the H50 to the $70 air coolers and it loses.

To get the true benefit of water cooing, you need to buy components for it... Not a All-n-One setup. The cost is more around the $200's or higher. Performance of those setups are hard to bet in cooling.

Thnaks, tecmo34.

I have read good reviews from the different sites about the Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus. I might buy it instead of the Consair H50. I have the Consair HX850 psu in mind. Do you think it is overkill for my system? I build this new computer for video editing and casual gaming.

Yes... You only need a max of 750W & will be fine at 650W with a Corsair unit. I say drop down the 750 model, unless there is little difference in cost (if pretty the same cost, just get the 850, as it won't hurt anything by doing so :)  )

Thank you guys. I decided to buy the Consair 850HX because I am thinking to get another 5770 video card and two more hard drives for 1+0. I have received the psu. My Asus MB P6X58D-E, Heat sink fan 212 plus and Sapphire viper 5770 is on the way. I am going to buy two Seagate 1GB 7,200rpm drive for raid 0 first.

Thanks again,
