Just got the i5 2500k and an asus Maximas IV gene mobo-
I want to oc my cpu to about 4.6-5ghz. Can you recommend me a cooler and a case that would fit the cooler. Also the maximas mobo is a microatx board so it doesn't have plenty of rooms. I am also getting a gtx 670 sli on that board. So what is the best way I can utilise my money to get the best cooling device and a case?
the phantom case looks nice, but it says its Mid ATX, so whats the difference between mid and full atx. I'd be glad to buy the phantom one if it fits my dual gtx670 and the cpu cooler. And I'd probably mount another fan for the dual gpus as they will be quite tight in my mobo. I am actually interested in the hyper 612, I have the hyper 212 on my i5 760 rig and I can push it to 4ghz with 1.425 vore. I assume the hyper 612 would be a lot better. It it takes my 2500k to 4.8, i'd be happy. Thanks for the intel much appreciated.
When using micro ATX board, a full tower is more a luxury than anything else (although airflow in most full towers is second to none). I wasn't really considering that the one you had chosen was a full tower.
The difference between full and mid towers is cost and size, with full towers having more internal and external drive bays and as I mentioned (in most cases) far superior airflow .
