Awesome, I've got the Thermalright heatsink and I'm about to throw the Antel tricool case fan in too. Is it much of a requirement or just an option to keep my temperature down for later overclocking?

If so anyone know the size (mm) I'll need for the Centurion case? Or is it just a matter of preference in the size of the blades.

120mm fan sticks onto the side of the thermalright. You need it so that your CPU doesn't fry. If you aren't going to OC much/at all then the stock HS/F will work but you need aftermarket (ie seperate ones you buy) for cooling OC'd chips.

If your worried about size pickup a Tuniq Tower 120 instead, slightly smaller, slightly less performance, but more bang-for-buck as it comes with a fan inside.

Thermalright Ultra 120 + any 120mm Fan - Bulky but has been confirmed to fit your case... somewhere

or

Tuniq Tower 120 - comes with a fan, smaller then the Ultra 120

or

Artic Freezer Pro - Combined HS/F smallest of the 3


Going down in efficiency, with the Tuniq being the best bang-for-buck.

All ordered and should be here tomorow.

Really got cold feet about the PSU though lol, I can probably afford to bump upto a 620w but 20 pound can buy me like 8 or 9 beers!

How refined will the system be with the smaller PSU? If at all lol.

Restricted*

And not at all, that corsair is perfectly fine for your system, even has room for another GT if your not pushing it with peripherals.
