It would seem so. No issues raised on compatibility checks on PCPartPicker. Stated max cooler height is 140 mm for the Core V1 and the Hyper 103 comes in at 138.5 mm leaving 1.5 mm. So it might fit, but it's going to be tight.

Thanks! Welcome to the club then! Since I'm not overclocking I might pass on the cpu cooler. BUT if just for the sake for aesthetics then I'm going for anything under 140 mm and had blue leds. Hyper 103 seems to be nice but I would prefer low profile coolers. Thought of getting a low profile cooler with 120mm fan then swapping the fan out, but it's not very economical. Will take any other suggestions!

Well maybe my friend was just unlucky then since he shared his bad experience with me. In any case my next SSD will probably be an M.2 SSD.. but i'll have to find a m/b which has the relevant ports.

Agreed on the CPU cooler portion. Hyper 103 is what I'm looking at but it'll be some time before I actually get it. CPU temps don't call for it after all and I'll need to pace my purchases. :)

I might try ultra on wt but in the long term I'll just hand it over to the geforce experience app to optimize settings. Unless I find an excellent way to cool my gpu , then ocing it will become an option open to me.

Thanks for the explanation! Figure d it was something like that but I have no idea how much difference CL 9 and CL 11 makes.

pity, I didn't have anyone recommend any particular brand of SSDs to me. Maybe I'll consider Intel in my next build!

Thanks :) so far ambient noise in my home fairly covers the fan noise. The 200mm is okay but the 80mms are slightly louder. Will be considering replacement if I find recommendations for higher air flow fans. To me cfm is everything since I'm only relying on air movement. Noise is secondary but of course the quieter the better!

Thanks! MiTX ROCKS!!

Able to handle max settings on PoE, War Thunder, World of Tanks. Customized settings using GeForce experience pushes temperatures a little higher. Averages 80 - 81 degrees for gaming. Otherwise the gaming experience so far is pretty good. I haven't got enough games to throw at it so I'm testing the limits bit by bit. Fans would need to work a little overtime to cope for now.
