Default Re: Need advice on $500 tower/building for friend...

Thanks again for the help Trotter

This Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm Ceramic CPU Cooler should fit in this no problem right: Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Elite 310 RC-310-BKR2-GP Black with blue front panel Steel Body / ABS plastic front bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 420W Power Supply That is the tower in the combo deal... 92mm fan/Heatsink isn't all that huge so I am thinking it should clear the RAM and have plenty of room to close the side panel of the case...

I used that case for my wife's build and have that cooler in it, so I know it will work just fine. A word of advise, though... install the cooler on the motherboard before you put it in the case. There's not much room for fingers between the PSU and the cooler's clip. It can be installed in the case, but it soooooo much easier if done beforehand.

That Gigabyte board layout is nearly identical to the Biostar in my wife's so the RAM will be out of the way.

Thank you so much for the input Trotter... I will let him know to get that Heatsink... I for sure plan to install the cooler before putting the MB in the case...
