    Well after having a hard time getting the right psu.

    Here's another one. Which case would do better.

    HAF 932/922
    InWin Maelstrom

    My choice before was TT Element V although I felt it is cramped or not roomy enough.

    Those 2 cases are available as of now and need help from people who have experience for it.

    If I had to choose between those two: HAF932. Excellent air cooling, great watercooling ability, roomy, only thing I wish is that it had a black interior.

    But if you have the ability/availability, check out the CM690II Advanced. I think it is the best case for the $$$, but I am a little biased, because I have one.

    Both are in the BTX format. I would have to go for the Maelstrom as it has the padding on the inside, and that huge 200mm side fan. IMO the HAF is better looking, but the Maelstrom has more features and is a better bang for the buck.

    Besides the case I forgot my 2nd dilemma heh.

    The ram I'm getting are G.Skill Ripjaws 3x2's Trichannel. Red Heatspreader and forgot what mhz it does.

    But is that any good?
