hy there

im really pumped :) ))) i got this awesome deal and im looking forward to make it a beast...so here's the spec 's

mobo asus rampage 3 gene
cpu--i7 930
gpu-gtx480
ram --12g
psu...i dont know yet...i didnt open the case yet...but sure its a good 1 if it runs the gtx 480
hdd--3x500g
blu ray player-burner
cpu cooler stock------


now here's the question....i wanna move all this stuff im a regular case like mid tower or full tower and ad a aftermarket cpu cooler
i saw ppl pushing 4ghz on the i7 930 with air...
im ready to spend 200$ for case and cooler...i was looking at this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
but then i read if i put a good cpu cooler like top 3 u wont be able to mount the 200mm side fan...so please help me to find a good case and cooler for this setup to get 4ghz.
it come with cse but its a falcon nortwest fragbox....small package ....and cant fit aftermarket cooler

ps...got it for 450$:)

thx 4 the replay....the heat sink link doesn't help the rampage gene its 1366....those coolers are 1156 ...yea the case its not bad ...im looking for something more sleek...
i really dont like the side with that big mesh...its just preference i ques
as the coolers im looking at this Prolimatech Megahalems, Noctua NH-D14 and the Thermalright Venomous-X.
just need a good case ...even if i pass that 200$ buy 20 bucks its not the end of the world:) 

thx 4 ur input anyway

Most likely if a cooler will fit for 1156 it will fit for 1366.

But out of those the Noctua NH-D14 is the best.

Great buy for $450.

Why not wait to see how you do with it before committing $200 for something you might not need?

There is nothing wrong with running a cpu or graphics card a bit hot, so long as you don't exceed the limits.

I really don't think you need a 4.0 oc to drive a GTX480 to it's limits.


If you hate the case, then by all means spend what you must to get a case you love.

You don't really need your 2600k at 4ghz to push your GTX580 do you?lol

I think a CPU cooler such as the NH-D14 is a very good idea.The cooler a CPU is the longer it will last,that goes for O.C.ing as well.

guy's my i7 its a 930 running at 2.8ghz ...with stock cooling ...now 2.8....u know i saw 4ghz...and now it etches :) )))....but i cant put a aftermarket cooling in it..here's the link for my pc..

http://www.falcon-nw.com/

it is the fragbox as u see it

should i just stay stock?...gtx 480 idle runs at 55c cpu runs at 48-44c on cores...

bigger case...better cooling more ghz on cpu....it is worth ?

This is the best case i would recommend... It's best only for air cooling but not good for water cooling...

Accessories when OCing! Since your OCing high 4GHz, Get this NorthBridge cooler because it's ganna be HOT, recommend NB stay under 67*C Unless you got a board with a fan on it... Note sure if it fits...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Note: I picked these because the Case is better at lower cost and the Cooler is better for lower cost and/or is the best... Zalman always makes good cooler as will as Noctua but im guessing It's time for a ultimate air cooler to be used and it's the Zalman link above... The Zalman cooler i linked above in my opinion is the best right now, the low rating was just some stuff missing and or too bit for their retarded mind lol...

That's like a lan party or HTPC case.Looks really cool but it's probably not giving the best airflow.

4ghz for the 930 is definitly doable.Even if your not going to O.C. I would suggest getting some type of aftermarket heatsink.

Seems like you want a white case.
The 600T is your best option imo.
You can fit any high-end air cooler you like in that monster = it's 10.4" wide.
If you want the best go for a Thermalright cooler.
http://www.thermalright.com/products/
The Silver Arrow or Archon will fit in the 600T no problem.
Both coolers come with the TY-140mm fan which is a better fan then anything Noctua has ever made.

Good stuff!
Fans are a little weak on the Silent X edition btw.
