Don't get Arctic Silver 5. The ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro comes with MX-2 thermal paste which is better than Arctic Silver 5.

The build looks good.... (admiral) galic (fyar)

These parts are already order, i'll get then on tuesday, but i thought that artic silver 5 was much better

About the PSU; i don't know, i'll try it first and if it holds then i'll save the Antec for my new gaming rig which i'll be building next October or november to take with me to Spain. lol

Tuniq TX-2 is actually the best but MX-2 is a close second.

Arctic Cooling is the company that makes the Freezer 7 Pro and MX-2 while Arctic Silver is a different company

It would be easier if Arctic Cooling bought out Arctic Silver... it makes things a lot easier!
