Default Re: New PC Build, need help on finishing it.

I have a tuniq tower HSF right now, and that is being supported by my side fan lol so I'm fine on this PC . I'll go with that HSF you mentioed then and lap it. I'll stick with the standard x58 mobo for now I think and save myself £100.

Thanks slaymate for your reply, really helped . i'll do myself a final (hopefully) build list and post it tomorrow; would appreciate it if you could check it.

Still undecided about water cooling but I'll wait until I get a price/chocies for kits. Do you think it will be ok without it in terms of temperatures in a normal room?Will fans be sufficient enough?

from the two ram links you posted, id go with the second cheaper one without the fan. it has better timings, plus the fan is not entirely necessary.

for the graphics card, if you dont mind paying the bit extra, then that one will work. it shouldnt run that much hotter than the regular one, its only clocked like 50mhz higher.

for the psu, yea that corsair 620w will work for one card. if you plan on gettin another 285 for sli though, look into the corsair 750w or 850w.

if you dont mind buying from a different site, then you can get the haf 932 on aria, in stock.
