Additional Comments: Doesn't really need to be too fancy, and I would like for it to last a few years. Looking to get the best for the money I have to spend. Also it is my first time doing this so let me know if these products even work with one another.
Shows the H80 leading in terms of temps, but good aircoolers aren't that far behind and are quieter.
You would have to get the Cooler Master HAF 912 (or other wide case) if you wanted to use the True Spirit 140 or Archon.
The Tempest 410 can supposedly take CPU coolers up to 170mm, which is exactly the same height as the TS140 or Archon.
Yes the true spirit 140, and I am thinking the HAF 912 will be a good case for the price. Besides that does everything look good? I would like to have some confidence in the build before I spend a lot of money on it.
