I would like some advice on the CASE and the CPU cooler for this setup

Hi all,

I would like your opinion on my setup list on the case and the cooler but i would like to keep the "Style" of the case... http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Skymasterpt/saved/R3ZgXL

The cooler can be one similar as long as the performance is not compromised :)

Another thing i would like to point is that the case in the Ebuyer website is cheaper is £69.99.

A simple curiosity, can i just buy from here as a single "shop" and pay it through here instead of going to all the websites ?

Not the same style but definitely a better case

Ohhhh that is so sad, would be a great option :) many thanks for the case suggestion, it actually looks pretty sturdy but no style at all :( i still have a few time before i make the computer, if i end up choosing the case i have would the cooler, board and case be compatible with the 4 dimms of ram??

I was checking noctua's compatibility list for the NH-D15 and the maximus VIII formula is not listed (strange).

There is also the S version. It has a higher compatibility because of its asymmetrical design. Performs the same as the NH-D15 with one fan, as the S version only comes with one fan. Of course you can buy another fan.

Thanks for the help again, another question is, why you said earlier that the your case suggestion is better? Won't the one i choose have a better airflow performance?

Regarding the cooler, thanks for the S suggestion I wasn't aware of that difference but regarding the size and case will it fit?? For the measurements in the website it looks like it will, but i will try and find out!

Without fans on side panel the Aerocool Xpredator X3 Devil Red supports coolers up to 186mm tall.

The NH-D15 and S version are both 165mm tall.

As for the case (enthoo pro) it is probably the best case you can get for around 100 bucks. Excellent airflow, and water-cooling compatibility. And for silence the Define R5..

After seeing that review and the closer look on that case, i honestly can say i will change and THANK YOU very much for your suggestion...

With this case the cooler will be no problem being the NH-D15 or should i change it still to the S version for the RAM compatibility?
