I'm wanting to build a PC with the NZXT M59 case, the Corsair H50 CPU cooler. I've heard people mention that they don't fit well, but it was unclear.
I want to use both top 120mm fan slots in the M59, and I was wondering if the H50's radiator would prevent me from doing so? Thanks

Do you already have the H50? If not, get yourself a good tower heatsink. The only use I see for H50/H70s are in MicroATX/ITX cases where space is limited for tall heatsinks.

Nope, I've not got either yet, the air cooler I was going to get before I changed my mind to te H50 is the Akasa AK-CCX-4002HP Venom CPU Cooler (Socket LGA775/LGA1155/LGA1156/LGA1366/AM2/AM3). Is this any good, or could you recommend a better one? My processor is the i5 2500k which I intend to overclock to around 4.5GHz.

My build is currently £700, this includes:
Mobo: p8p67
CPU: i5 2500k
Psu: 650W modular
Memory: 8gb (2x4gb) corsair xms3
Bluray drive
Ati hd radeon 5770
Corsair h50
Nzxt m59 case
1tb hdd 7200rpm 32mb

Think that's every major thing, nothing else comes to mind.

After some quick searching, the Akasa Venom isn't a bad performer. I'm from the states so I'm not sure how prices will compare, but I would also look into the Cooler Master V6 and Thermalright Venemous-X.
