got the components i want.

just trying to decide on a cpu cooler. now...i was going to get the dark rock pro 4 but..part picker says could be issues with ram or may not fit. also i see some horror stories of bending cpu sockets and it is a big cooler. so not sure on that one now. 2nd option i was thinking about is the artic liquid freezer 2 280 but..after googling that with a intel 12700k there is also horror stories about it not being good or issues.

so just asking for a good cpu cooler thats under 100 quid thats got all the fittings in the box ( notice many dont have 1700 brackets which is bizarre ) and can cool a i7 12700k at full tilt. thanks.

The clearance section is always worth a look for heatsinks as you can make big savings and often get a much better heatsink than you would if paying full price.

Also, don't forget to do a review for your board under MSI's promotion for which you get a $50 Steam gift card (it's actually 5x $10 codes). When I did mine a couple of months ago it worked out at £38.80 but the pound has gotten significantly weaker since then. I believe the promotion ends at the end of May so you need to hurry.
