Final Check Before Purchase

First off, sorry for starting a new thread. My last one was a little bloated, although it had some excellent discussions in there. Thanks to everyone who participated and helped me out. I have you to thank for my new beast.

I'd like to buy this computer ASAP (today or tomorrow morning) but before I do I just want to go over all the parts for a final check.

I also have one question regarding the CPU cooler. I can't find the Noctua NH-D14 on www.directcanada.com (where I will be purchasing my parts). Does anyone know where I can pick it up in Toronto, Canada or if any site has a good shipping rate on it?

The computer is for games/internet/work (word processing)

More about final check purchase
  1. Looks pretty good.

    CPU Cooler => If you can't find the Noctua CPU cooler, the Hyper 212+ is a great option as well.
    http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=11130AC8843&vpn=RR-B10-212P-G1&manufacture=COOLERMASTER

    MEM => DDR3-1333 is all you need and you won't see a difference between it and the DDR3-1600 you have listed. If possible, swap that with DDR3-1333 CL7 1.5v (stick with GSKILL modules).
  2. Thanks guys, I will look into that.

    I will be Overclocking this puppy on air cooling, FYI.
  3. What are the pros for going with that case?
  4. better cooling
  5. Yeah? Better than two 200mm fans on top?

    It is cheaper which is why I'm asking.
  6. If you don't like the exterior look on the Raven (or if you just like a cleaner look more) the Silverstone FT02 is the same internally but with a more classical exterior and some noise reducing foam on the side panels.. It costs more tho
  7. I looked into it... I may be sold (damn white case costs $20 more!).

    Quick question, I know people say its large, but can it fit a Noctua ND-H14?
  8. Hmmm... so better cooling, cheaper, similiar size... I don't get it?
  9. what do you mean?
  10. Just trying to figure out why it's almost $50 cheaper, while still being better.
  11. Better deal? =)
