I really have no clue with most of this PC building stuff, but I am ordering a PC from cyberpowersystem.co.uk and I just wanted to run some of the specs past you guys to make sure I'm not going to have trouble with the heatsink size.
Case: Azza Hurrican 2000 Full Tower Gaming Case
CPU cooler: CoolerMaster V6 GT
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair XMS3 w/Heat Spreader (PC12800 DDR3/1600mhz Dual Channel Memory)
They're not going to have trouble fitting anything are they? I mean, I'm using two sticks of RAM, so even if the V6 GT blocks some slots, there'll still be 2 open, correct?
Like I said, I've got NO IDEA with this stuff.
By the way, how's a V6 GT going to go with cooling the 2500k if I overclock it to 4.5GHz in this case? I've read its a pretty good cooler.
Also, the ThermalTake Frio is available for only £4 more. How's it compare to the V6 GT? I don't think I'm too worried temperature-wise, as I read some reviews where they were compared and were either equal or barely any different, but what about noise? Is the Frio louder or quieter?
How are the noise levels on the V6 GT; loud, average, quiet?
If you look at the photos, clearance won't be an issue at all. The Corsair XMS doesn't have a tall heat spreader like the Vengeance does - I have two systems with that same RAM and haven't had any issues with it.
