Advice for CPU Cooling and Case
I'm upgrading to a 2600k + asus p8z68-z pro system and trying to figure out the best solution in terms of case and cooling. I'm budget sensitive and I won't be going for max OC. Maybe a moderate OC after the system has been stable for a month or so. So a DIY setup just isn't for me..
That being said, what would you suggest for a cooling option and case?
Currently, I'm looking at the Corsair Carbide 400r case with a Hydro H100 or H80 cooling system using Noctua NF-P12 on the rad to keep the noise down. That h100 is a noisy beast.
But I'm open to new ideas and suggestions in case I'm overlooking a better setup of either an air or a water cooling systems.
i should put 'get a haf 912 and hd6950' in me siggie, the first part applying to many a post and what not :)
why not go high end air cooling?

i put two 200 mm fan in my haf 912. it can take one in the front and one on the top.
