This is currently my first build started out on tight budget, but have upgraded nearly everything so far apart from cpu , due too getting a job again.

Currently need a good cpu cooler + Case , was thinking H60 maybe or if you have better ideas?

FX4100 4.0GHZ stock heatsink and fan want too get 4.4-4.6ghz
8GB 1600 Corsair Vengance Ram low profile
MSI 7870 Twin Frozr 2GB
550W XFX Pro Psu
M5A99X EVO Mobo
1TB HDD
+ Crappy 15£ ATX case
22' Logik HDTV via hdmi

Please dont flame cpu or you will be reported, perfectly happy with the performance for the price, and it runs everything i play fine(wow, bf3 far cry3, AC3) , just looking for a good cooler too get the most out of my 7870.

Ok case maybe? And if anyone can reccommend a good cooler for my cpu, would like too get upto about 4.4-4.6ghz.

I have this cpu cooler already but it dont fit in my cheap ass atx case, so if it doesnt fit in the case i linked above , maybe the corsair H60 would be best route to go or similar?

thanks if you give me some advice on what cooler to buy

I would get a new case and then get a Hyper 212 EVO. I would not bother with those closed looped water cooling kits they are a waste of moey IMO.

Ok that seems nice, smaller than the one i have. My fx4100 is am3+, would the Hyper 212 EVO still fit? cheers :p

I would get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and NZXT Source 210. Perfect combo. The case is plenty large enough and happens to have excellent airflow to further support cooling :)

Yes it will support everything from the old Intel 1366 socket to the new AMD AM3+.

Intel Socket LGA 2011/1366/1155
AMD Socket FM1/FM2/AM3+
