Case+ heatsink

i need advice on a nice case (low price, and has nice cooling) and a nice heat sink that fits in it, but offers great cooling so i can unlock my 550BE to a quad and over clock it to 4.0ghz or more.


any suggestions?

OK, dont know where you are located but

If you are in the US, then go to CoolerMaster.com

They have several refurbished cases there, and most any coolermaster will work for you and they are really priced right.

You can also pick up the HeatSink there and I would recommend the 212Plus, it will handle you opening up the other two cores without any problems.

Now if you are willing to spend a little more for the case you can look at the review I just published for the SilverStone FT02 chassis which is probably the best air cooled chassis available right now.

It's kinda fuzzy but this is a snap of the contact core freezer with a 120.



Huge cooler but very effective copper pipe radiator style system.

Lets see the Antec's 300, 900, and 1200 are good so are the Coolermaster HAF 932 and 922, also some of the NZXT case are pretty good i have no complaints with my Tempest other than i don't think its big enough anymore but its got more than enough room for a big heatsink

So go to the one near Yonge and Finch. Or even have it delivered.

If you do decide on the Three Hundred CC is the cheapest going for it right now, even with delivery they are cheapest.

CPU heatsink lapping...???
I've just finished reading a few different tutorials on how to lap a cpu/heatsink. Has anyone here done that and are the temp differences really that big? One guide only showed a 2 degree drop.
