Okay, one of my last questions. Is everything going to kept cool? And how loud is the computer going to be?

Is there anything special I need to do when installing the fan? Never tried one of those before.

I can assure you, that the case will keep everything nice and cool. I don't think it's that loud, but I think it's loud enough to be heard. You should talk to people who have those cases. There are a bunch of them here, that do.

There is really no improvement from 2G to 4g but you can see a pretty nice improvement if you move from 1G to 2G, thats what I heard around, in most article the sweet spot is 2G, 4G is useless imo unless your are in video editing, cad etcetera..
