Default Intel build.

So, got this build of a friend from a group on facebook.

Just wondering if it's the best for the money i'm spending, which is about £700.

I have the case, dvd rom, monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers.

It's going to be a blue themed build, so most of the parts are blue.

Here are the links too the parts, please tell me what you think

Corsair Memory Vengeance Pro Series Blue 8GB DDR3 1866 MHz Dual Channel Desktop - CMY8GX3M2A1866C9B - Scan.co.uk (RAM)

Intel Core i5 4690K Socket 1150 Haswell Processor - BX80646I54690K - Scan.co.uk (CPU, Can i OC this?)

OCZ ARC 100 Series 240GB SSD SATA 3 - ARC100-25SAT3-240G - Scan.co.uk (SSD)

I will either be getting this cooler Coolermaster Seidon 120V Hydro Cooler - RL-S12V-24PK-R2 - Scan.co.uk or this one https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showp...30&subcat=2666

Silverstone SST Strider 600W Modular Power Supply - SST-ST60F-PB - Scan.co.uk (PSU)

Gigabyte GTX970 Twin Turbo OC NVIDIA Graphics Card 4GB - GV-N970TTOC-4GD - Scan.co.uk (GPU)

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

I'd get the H100i instead and change the Corsair logo to blue. The Triton is known for cracking res.

You have a CPU linked but no motherboard, so can't answer if you can OC or not.

Good on the GPU. Will blow all the hot air out of the case.

Questionable on the PSU and SSD. You shouldn't pull enough power to stress the Silverstone but I wouldn't buy it just because it has a blue fan. The SSD is cheap but the specs aren't the best.

Can i get a better PSU for the same price? Doesn't have to be blue, it's just what the guy picked out for the build. Sorry, though i posted the Mobo link, it's this one.

ASRock Z97 Anniversary Motherboard - Z97 ANNIVERSARY - Scan.co.uk

And about the cooler, damn, really? Wanted it cause it looks nice, + has seethrough tubes.

I didn't look honestly (was about to leave work) but maybe. They have this which is only a tad more. This unit is made by Seasonic, and rates 9.1 over at Jguru.
EVGA SuperNOVA 650W Modular Power Supply - 220-GS-0650-V3 - Scan.co.uk

That board will OC, good choice for budget.

Eh, you could try it but I warned you lol.

I suppose i could go for that PSU. I may give the cooler a try, but i'll still buy the h100i a little later as a back up?


*edit* Ok just seen reviews... think i'll pass on it, lol. Do you know of any others i can buy that are like that one? (but better) and also the SSD, same price though if possible? :P

Reviews on what?

On the SSD, not really. Next step up is the 850 EVO, maybe the Crucial MX200.

Reviews of the Raijintek Triton. They seem to be shipped out and they arrive cracked etc, fittings over tightened and so on.

So, that SSD will do me fine till i upgrade? as for the PSU, should i go with the one you linked?

Alright, thank you

The SSD has gone out of stock... that's just my luck -_-


So, would this build do good? Had to go for a cheaper cpu cooler as it's a little over budget now.

That's a blank page lol.
If the 100i is too much then the H80i GT will still do you well. My best friend had one on all of his CPUs for about 4 years until he moved to the H100i (just because I did).
Corsair H80i GT Hydro Cooler - CW-9060017-WW - Scan.co.uk

If the OCZ is out, still have this option.
