I'm building a new computer, and planning to overclock, but I don't want to cook my computer at the same time . I'm planning on building an computer with an Athlon XP 2800+ Barton Core, an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro, Corsair XMS 512 MB PC3200 (2x), Asus A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard, and I think that's it for overclockables . I may not even overclock, but in the future if I become brave enough maybe I would. I have a Antec Model PLUS1080AMG case, which is roomy (or so I think) so I think I'll have good for for fans and the such.
I was looking at CPU fans, and two stuck in my mind: Cooler Master HHC-001 and the Glacialtech IGLOO 2500 PRO. The Cooler Master HHC-001 looks better, but people were talking about it being too noisy and using to quiet it a 60mm-80mm adapter, is that adapter cheap? Can I buy it off Newegg or in a large electronics store (such as Best Buy or Circuit City or whatnot)? Do I use a 80mm case fan?
Speaking of case fans, which ones are good . I think Thermaltech looked good from what I can remember, varial speed doesn't matter, noise can be kind of loud, but not extremely. I'd like to use 120mm since I heard that they can push the same amount of air at a quiter rate. How many case fans could I get, how big can I go up until? How many in inhaust (is this even the correct name ) fans and how many exhaust fans?
I'd like some good heatsinks for the CPU and videocard memory or the videocard or whatever. Should I replace the fan on the ATI card? I saw fan system to keep the hard drives and the stuff in my bays like the CD-RW and DVD-ROM cool? Should I bother with that area? I heard hard drives get hot. I could also instead just get a hard drive cooler.
Any and all help on this is appreciated. I'm very sorry for this being so long, I just have so many questions, I'm extremely confused! ^_^ ^_^ By the way I also am getting Arctic Silver 3 for attaching heatsinks and other stuff too, it's about the only thing I'm almost sure of. Thanks again for any help.
