Default Re: new gaming build

alright here is the new build, i am fairly new to water cooling, as in i have never built a water cooling system before but i have read up a lot about building over the last few months.

RIG

Im not sure what case to use both of them seem ok, id prefer the Coolermaster one however if the Bitfenix is better for water cooling il go with that one.

Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard [SABERTOOTH-Z77] - $249.00 : PC Case Gear

I really like the look of this board, not sure about performance though, if anyone has had any experience, advice would be good.

Nothing to say hear, expect thanks for the advice on going with the 3770k.

Changed the memory

Power Supply: Corsair AX1200 Gold Power Supply [CMPSU-1200AXAU] - $329.00 : PC Case Gear

I know its to much but this way i should have to upgrade the psu for a while.

Same here.

You only need as many barbs as you have in and out. The Bitfenix case is the only one out of those 2 capable of mounting that 120.3 rad. I would also get a SLI fitting but I don't see one on that site. Pitty. Also as for the PSU, as time progresses max TDP of video cards go down. I'm even going to be downgrading my PSU to an 850 pretty soon.

I have no idea. They are kind of hard to find here, but this is what I'm talking about.
