I know this is something I should be able to figure out myself, but I don't build Comps too often, I'm more of a software guy. I have a relatively small case. And I want to put the GTX 760 inside this Computer instead of the GTX 645 it came with which seems to kind of fail. Lol But the video card is rather large and I'm concerned how to where the heat is going to go so I want a strong aftermarket CPU cooler that will be able to fit in the case of the Dell XPS 8700. Was hoping somebody here maybe has done this? Or is willing to look up the case for me(Should be really easy to find.) and give some advice.

You might want to consider to upgrade that case, OEM cases (Dell) are not known for their better air flow qualities. You can get a decent case for under $50. Won't be a great case but it'll probably be better than the Dell case. Getting a better cpu cooler won't help to cool down your case, You'll need better air flow through the case with more case fan options and better wire management


economy priced cases:

Case? Get a corsair 200r. anything lower than that is crap (for me)

CPU Cooler? Get a CM Hyper 212 evo. anything lower than that is crap (for me)

If I am helping you but failed to reply within 24 hours, send me a PM.
