since this is your 1st build, i would HIGHLY advise to NOT go watercooling. if you make a mistake, you are screwed. water+electronics dont mix... unless you plan to overclock seriously, go air cooling, a good thermalright si120 heatpipe heatsink (google it) will satisfy most cpus.

does the high performce version cool better i saw that it stands higher of the mobo?

but this case dos have a little duct that gos from a mesh on the side to the hs so i dont know if it will fit the high performace version

that duct is optional, you can take it out. if you wont overclock, i say leave the stock cooler on the cpu, no watercooling or anything.

"does the high performce version cool better i saw that it stands higher of the mobo?" -also not sure that youre talking about here.

if this is your first build, you'll have enough on your plate with the dfi board without having to mess with watercooling at the same time... i'd suggest getting it running on air first...

The 3700+ is about the same price as the 148, but I think the 3700+ is cheaper though. For all practical purposes, they're the same thing. (for all the anal people: I know they're not the exact same.)
