looking to find out if the combination of parts i have selected will fit inside a HAF 932 Advanced case

 

AS Rock Fatality 990FX Mother Board With an AMD 8350 Processor

Sapphire R9-390 Nitro Video Card

32 Megabytes of Viper Extreme Memory

 

Now I am looking to figure out two things first

I am considering one of Three CPU Coolers

The V8 Gts/ The V-10 or the newest Cooler  the master Air Maker 8

 

Any Suggestions please

Hi Wellcome to CM Forum

 

CM Haf 932 Advanced .. According CM website is Height at 172.1mm for the Cpu Cooler

 

Ok first V8 Gts is 166.5mm height

 

second is MasterAir Make 8 is 172mm .. mean you have tight space there ...

 

third is CM v10 height at 161.3mm

Thank You for your Quick Response

based on your Opinion only out of the Three which would you choose for the Rig that I am building

I am leaning more towards the V-8 GTS Due to Size and Looks

Hard to answer your question :)

 

MasterAir Make 8 .. with modular type ... if iam not mistake . you able to change 120m to 140m fans

 

V8 Gts also great Air Cooler.. if you want more i think MasterAir make 8 is perfect choice ...

okay but given size The Master Air Maker 8 would only have approx .1 mm clearance to the outer shell of the Case

would this be enough with the 140 MM Fans as I am not totally sure if changing the fans out would make a diffrence in Height

and as i posted above i am trying to make sure that i am able to use this cooler before I purchase based on size and the ability to

Clear Memory Sticks and fit into the Case.  On my last Motherboard I had a V-6 and it worked perfectly

so I figured that I was upgrading i would need to upgrade the cooler as well

Another point in this is that based on the information that I have been able to gather about this Video Card is that it can be overclocked and it is possible that I might overclock the CPU a small bit so I am making sure that I have something that will take care of the processor and keep me gaming for a long time
