My System Specs

I don't think that even the mighty D14 wouldn't be able to cool the cpu sufficiently at that point. For PSU, look at anything from seasonic, corsair, xfx, or antec. The OCZ ZX series PSU's are OK and usually a little cheaper than the above brands. My 2 cents...

Yeah good point, h212 is a great cooler and if your keen on overclocking the airflow around the MoBo heatsinks is something it has over the h80, unless you own a wind tunnel of a case.
