Heatsink sits ontop of the CPU, pulling the heat off of it. The Fan sits ontop of that pulling air through the Heatsink fins to cool them down.

What your really going to want is a HEATSINK/Fan combo as they generally come this way. Also, depending on the type of Processor[CPU] you purchase, it may have a generic one. Which works just fine if your not OC'ing.

Notice in the Name of both products you have linked, there is the same ATX, that means they will work together.

When you get the case, set the motherboard inside of it to figure out which holes on the mounting plate you will put STANDEES in. Youll need 1 for EVERY mounting hole on the motherboard and do not put any extras.

When I build a new computer, I build it first outside of the case, on a piece of cardboard, with only these items.....Motherboard, CPU, CPU Heatsink/Fan, PSU, 1 stick of Ram, Videocard, monitor....I then use a small screwdriver to touch the PWR pins to jump start the system.

If it doesnt start at this point, putting it in the case can add damage and complications.
If it does start, unplug it, put the same parts in the case and start it again with the start button.
If it doesnt start, check EVERYTHING again.
If it still doesnt start, you have a standee in the wrong spot or the wires to the case are wrong, or something is not connected properly.

If it didnt start with the original test, change ram sticks.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""

Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

Personally - If you didn't know the difference between a cpu fan/heatsink/cooler you need to do more homework.
Reading reviews for all the components is one step in that direction, and reading tutorials is another.
At the end of the day having more knowledge of what your are buying will get you a more suitable, and healthier machine.

That is a very tall case unless you have a [i]lot[/i] of HDD's. Depth (which it has enough of) is important to allow for long gpu's.
The DF-35 is the same depth, and still quite tall.

Any special reason why you want to go with AMD 990FX platform ?

I bet the answer is because he wants to. :)

You might make some suggestion if you think he is making a mistake.
