I've just not long filled an intro in for this forum and hope my way of calling for assistance hasn't offended . ~ Making a list but it will materialize ~. I have seen a very attractive bundle including a I7 3820 2011 paired with MSI 79aGD65 X79 with mem and heatsink for cheaper than the price of the board and chip.

The heatsink may be never fitted as I want this to be a watercooled affair < yes affair I love em LOL. I know TTL likes the Bitfenix cases I want to move away a little seen the NZXT Tempest 410 Mesh at a silly price...any experience or thoughts ?? My requirement is good air cool to be converted to water afterwards. My future hopes when transfering to water = 3 x120 rad in the roof or 2 x120 rad in the roof with room for a proprietry cpu all-in-one cooler or maybe a two rad set up with one on the floor or one in the space provided with a hdd cage removal without any dremel work. Yes fosciles expect a lot ....budget approx £150. Haven't discounted Corsair 550D/650D/600T. Fractal XL or Storm Trooper. The Antec 1100 looks tastey ......getting confused TTL's fault Thank's in anticipation and a big one for TTL

Yes he did he gave it a gold award.[not many of them about - LOL] I am not a true gamming type and yes if nothing else pops up that is the main contender. Thanks Excalabur50 and ThatBattleFieldGuy for your replies

Have to admit looked at several reviews of that case and it ticks all my boxes. Would like some first hand knowledge of the Antec 1100 and the NXTZ Tempest 410 Mesh. The Storm Trooper looks unbeatable in every way. As I say not a true Gamer. My 'sport' - realistic add ons for FSX with all that goes with it ie., Sids / Stars / weather engines / and scenery enhancers. All the Boeings ~concorde ~ Airbus's and so on. A bit serious, I know but building and the challenge is addictive. Recently water cooled my HTPC and halfway through doing the same with my HAF < that is very practical but reminds me of a Petrol Can LOL
