its about 6 years old.
the p68 is 30 DKR cheaper, from the store i was looking to order from, not much but it all sums up in the end.
i wanted the h60/40 becouse of the low noice lvl.
 

If you want low noise level then don't get the H60. I have the H80 and wish that I would have gone with a good air cooling solution. Go with the Hyper 212+....you'll be happy you did.

okay, so ive saved some money on switching the cpu cooler,
the thing is, that i'm a student, thus money is sparse, and if i can avoid getting a new PSU, it would save me a months worth of food.

its a oczgsx 700 PSU, and its about 5-6 years old, ive cleaned it once a year, to keep it from heating up to much.
is there a chance it can run my new rig, or is it out of the question?
 

Wow
IMO you're lucky to have gotten that long with it
Saving money by using a 5-6 year old psu in a new dual card system ?
IMO, buy a single card and a psu that can handle a dual card setup, get another card when you save more money
 
If the H60 can be criticised for being noisy then the Hyper 212 Evo must also be criticised for it.
Fan specs for H60: max speed 1700RPM, noise rating 30.2dBA.
Fan specs for Hyper 212 Evo: max speed (on the NA version) 2000RPM, noise rating 36dBA. Saving grace for the Hyper 212 Evo is that it is cheaper and the minimum speed is 900RPM.

i have decided to go with an gtx 680 card instead, and a 3450 ivy bridge and a z77 mobo.

and the cooler master 212,
also ive postponed the case buy, for an unknown time, and found (yes actually found, near the dumbster) a case that can fik my needs, for now.
this should be much more power sufficient, than my previous build.

will post, when bougth and completed!
