Windows 7: Is this PC a good build?

Modified the case because of compatibly reasons. Should have made it a little cheaper and cooler. Bu this compatibly note comes up: Unable to verify the Raidmax Helios ATX-819WB ATX Mid Tower Case and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler are compatible.

So is the cooler compatible with this case?

It might be. Any incompatibility is probably because the cooler is too tall and won't fit.

You need to go to the Raidmax web site and see if they mention a maximum height for the cooler.

For instance--my case (Antec Solo II) has a maximum cooler height of 160 mm. Many good tower coolers are slightly taller than that and simply won't fit.

If you can't find that maximum height specification mentioned on the Raidmax web site, then you need to Google to see if you can find any mention from owners of that case about acceptable cooler height.

You can easily find out the height of the Hyper 212.

Your Swedish prices are typical for Europe. I am from Germany and prices are usually 30% higher than in the US. That's why I buy what I can transport in my suitcase in the US.

You should also know that the US prices are usually without taxes. E.g at Newegg you pay no taxes if you live outside Califonia and another state (I think Tennessee). But even then sales taxes are usually +/- 6% where they are 19% in e.g. Germany. To that you have to add the import duty which used to be 11%.

???

Air flow would have nothing to do with compatibility. Air flow refers to fan output. Nothing more.

Did you confirm that the HEIGHT of the cooler is less than the maximum acceptable HEIGHT of a cooler for THAT Raidmax case?
