May I ask something concerning the A8-3850 and the motherboards it uses? I want to know if they can use after market coolers such as corsair hydro series, but at the same time i want to know other options that are not too big because I am thinking of getting a case like this.

I want a after market cooler that can fit, but when I look at the coolers I can not tell if they are compatible with the FM1 socket and the A8-3850.

Does anyone have a build like this?

If you do not want hydro, the Hyper 212 is a great cooler and is FM1 compatible.
The Corsair Hydro is over double the price but there is one that is compatible with FM1. If you will be doing very very intense gaming/editing you may want the hydro but the Hyper 212 would be fine for intense gaming/editing.

Yeah that looks nice, (hydro), but the 212 is not bad either ;) .

Just asking one more thing people, what positions need to be set up for push and pull on the hydro series.

Is push and pull good, and needed on that case? just wondering what are the benefits of doing it.

i now you can put fans in regular mode but have been hearing stuff about push and pull on other sites.

I'll post my New build info later on during the week or something time.

Thank you for your reply roblaw42.
