Thanks, was undecided which would be better. It's absolutely massive compared to my AMD stock one though. I put my MB in Performance mode in BIOS and it seems to have started to control the fan spped automatically, its almost silent when I'm browsing but it gets noisy when I boot up a game, so it's alot more bearable now, I may be able to put it off a while and focus on RAM or HDD upgrades instead :)

Edit: Just thought I'd say i put Black Ops II onto all the highest graphics settings and i was still getting 60 FPS, the Radeon 7790 is performing better than I expected :)

sounds like that 7790 is kicking some major ass! Very nice. Yeah if you are on a budget the 212 evo is great. Just thought i would point you towards those. they are nice, and quiet. Sometimes they go on sale. I picked mine up for $50 US. so not too bad. but it's still not $35 regular price. lol.

I've just done a bit of research and there's some liquid CPU coolers i could get from €50-60, so I'll definitely look into them :) And yeah, the 7790 is kicking ass, I'm glad I got the Asus OC version :p
