    Hello everyone I need some help

    Hello everyone! so its time to build something and I need your help

    So after almost a week of looking and reading and thinking I am down to 2 cases now .
    NZXT Source 530 and Thermaltake Overseer RX-I
    They both have filters where I need them and easy to clean and other stuff as well.
    But here is where it gets tricky.. witch one to buy ?
    here are my 2 options

    A) Thermaltake Overseer RX-I + 4x Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 = 190$ total I am going to have to remove the stock fans it h as because they slow and move only around 60CFM where as CM well over 100CFM.

    B) NZXT Source 520 + 7x Prolimatech PRO-BV14 140mm = 168$ Almost same thing here the Prolimaech looks like a great fan s that move alot of air and quite as well going to put 2x in front / 3x on top( replace the current 1x 120mm ) / 1x rear ( repl ace the current 120mm ) 1x on bottom next to PSU.
    so.. yeah.. what you think guys ? OR is there a better option? Let me know . Thank you

    specs Im thinking on getting ( also open to suggestion on them as well )

    Forgive me for asking this question.


    Why are you asking a ASUS support forum to offer comment on a AsRock build? Not sure that having a ASUS optical drive really qualifies mate.

    If your motherboard budget was say 189 then the Hero is available from Newegg.

    yeah.. I too liking the NZXT a bit more.. just will need to get more fans for it and replace the one it currently has..
    one more question.. is that PSU crossfire/sli ready ? will it support it if i'll want to do that one day ?
