    Not sure what case you're using (unless there's one in the list, and I'm being blind...), but have you decided not to add any extra case fans to keep it quiet? I guess the testing will tell you if the cooling isn't sufficient.

    The spec looks good, we have sold a number of units very similar to that.

    The Coolermaster 335 is good for the money, its worth bearing in mind it is an entry level chassis

    Cheers

    Is there a better , in other words quieter alternative I should have gone for which still allows for decent cooling?

    Re: My new just ordered system..did I forget anything?

    Errrm - is there a MoBo in that list ? Or is it a part of the OC Bundle ?
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.
