    Cheaper Ram.

    The Team Group Dark Pro might not fit under the D15 but you can remove the top part to make it lower profile. The T-Force should be fine with the height.

    I'd be tempted to wait for the Pure Base 500 with the mesh front. It looks ace.

    I'm using a Pure Base 600, it was great to build in but it's lacking in intake space at the front.

    Just checked - March apparently. Referred to as the Pure Base 500 DX :)

    That case does look good!!
    I don't mind waiting until march as I am in no rush, hopefully the 1660 super would have dropped to under £150 by that point also.

    I have a ryzen 3600 and its great for games. looking at its performance in passmark its great valuve. Still not many games use more than 4 threads (I often watch HW monitor whilst playing) - but when they do you will still be sorted. I was so impressed by the ryzen 3600 that I bought another one and upgraded another PC. In my PC I did however buy a cpu cooler to keep it below 65ºC for max boost whilst not hearing the fans too loudly (depends on your case etc) but as the 3600 is so cheap you can afford a better cooler.

    I got this dual fan cooler (£35) https://www.overclockers.co.uk/arct...duo-white-cpu-cooler-2-x-120mm-hs-074-ar.html
    and have set the fan profile to being 50% fan from 20 to 60ºC and then to ramp up to 100% by 65ºC so it stays very quiet and yet keep the cpu boots to 4.2ghz

    good point about the RAM clearanace

    I see this on OCUK website

    "High RAM compatibility in single fan mode
    Thanks to its recessed lower fins, the NH-D15 provides 64mm clearance for tall memory heatsinks in single fan mode, making it compatible with most high end RAM modules on the market. In dual fan mode, the NH-D15 should be used with standard height RAM (up to 32mm). Please note: In chassis with more than 165mm CPU cooler clearance, the front fan can be moved upwards to make room for memory modules taller than 32mm."

    so if your case has more than 165mm cpu cooler clearance you should be able to move the front fan up - I have the 8 pack RAM and in one pc clearance was an issue so I got a smaller cooler than I would have liked.
