I'm thinking of doing a custom build:
i5 760 (2.8 GHz quad) with coolermaster hyper212+ cooler
ATI graphics card (no idea what yet)
Reasonable 4GB kingston RAM
2 500GB sata HDDs, might add in SSD (3.5") later
I am wondering what kind of case I would need (I plan to Overclock)
It comes down to (I need a gamers case to OC, not to game):
Antec 200 ($61)
This one is cheap, but only has a top 140mm and rear 120mm
Antec 600 ($104)
This one has a 200mm on the top and a 120 on the back
Antec 902 ($121)
This is the same as before, except it also has 2 front 120mm adjustable speed HDD fans.
I was wondering:
a) how much would the front HDD fans affect the CPU temperature?
b) how much would a bigger top fan affect the CPU temperature?
And obviously, what would you buy in my position and why
Also, what are "tricool" and "twocool" fans?
