Hi im putting together a PC for game development and other CPU and GPU intensive projects.

Im planning to get this motherboard: ASUS B75M-PLUS and was wondering if it runs together with the following parts:
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-3350P socket 1155
GPU: GIGABYTE GV-N630-2GI (Nvidia Geforce GT 630)
CASE: Aerocool Qs-200
Case Fans: Aerocool Shark Fan 12cm Black Edition X2 and Sharkoon System Fan S120 X2.
PSU: Antec EA-500 Green
Ram: Corsair 8 GB DDR3-1600 X1
CPU cooler: Arctic Freezer Xtreme Rev.2

The main question i have since im really nervous about this is What fans do i attach where. There are 2 4 pin fan slots and thats it So i was wondering what fan to put there Since i know the fans im getting are not controlled i still want to know witch ones are more important to put on the MOBO and witch ones to attach to the PSU (if possible).

And if you guys have recommendations for 4 pin 120x120mm fans plz do so i cant find annything on the website im using.


Thanks,
Raoul

First of all, find another VGA unless you already bought that GT630, since GT630 has pretty bad performance for its price ( unless your software can use CUDA cores ). The board is a solid one, and the amount of fan headers it has is common for a mATX case. So, in this case, put a PWM-controlled fan to the upper fan mount on the side ( and plug it to the motherboard, of course ). Others can be plugged to the PSU.

And 2nd note: no need for a big cooler like that on the 3350p, which doesn't produce much heat any at all.

Good PWM-fan I found there: http://www.alternate.nl/Arctic/Arctic+F12_PWM/html/prod...

Good non-PWM ones: http://www.alternate.nl/Scythe/Scythe+Slip_Stream_1200/...

Sir you are fantastic. Haha joined today most of the issues i have already solved. Il get together a final set of parts add and remove some. Do you have a recomendation for a GPU not all to expensive (2G 1000+Mhz more then 148 Shader cores)?

You're welcome :)  Is it a must to be a nVidia card, has 2gb vram, and how's your budget for the VGA?

btw you also got a link for me about how to attach them to the PSU(the splitters) and also does my PSU has the right recuirements for my PC and ofcourse enough space for the fans and maybey annother GPU and other equipt ment).

And what CPU cooler do you recommend?

I think you'll figure it out yourself easily. If 2 things fit, they'll work with each other. And yes, you can put to even a HD7870 using that PSU. Spaces are enough ( yes I checked all the parts you posted ). As for the CPU cooler, the stock one would do the job well, but get this one if you really want to keep the temp as low as possible : http://www.alternate.nl/Cooler_Master/Cooler_Master+Hyp...

Yhea since i work with Physx and Apex test lab for Nvidia i'd like everything to be nvidia so whenever i have an issue i only need to contact 1 company instad of 2 :p 

before i forget i currently have to pay 608 euro's for the entire thing. So i'd say annother 90/100 euro's for a good GPU wont harm. Il update this to my new parts in a new comment.

Nice job :)  This would be my pick at around 100: " http://www.alternate.nl/EVGA/EVGA+GeForce_GTX_650_Super...(01G-P4-2652-KR)/html/product/1031598/?tk=7&lk=4037 " ( over 2 times better than a GT630 in terms of performance ).

BTW, toying around that site and I found this better motherboard at a lower cost: http://www.alternate.nl/MSI/MSI+B75MA-G43/html/product/... ( but you'll have to wait a bit )

And it has 2 case fan headers :D 

Edit: something is wrong with Toms site that it cut a part of the link to the VGA. Just quote this reply and copy the whole thing between " ".

Ok so the new gpu is the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Superclocked (01G-P4-2652-KR) it says 2 taken slots does that mean i can encrease the Ram of the GPU? annyway what is mini HDMI i have heard of it(i study hardware and software technologies) but i never got a look into it. Is it normal HDMI? or a tiny version of it(i want normal bc buying new cables i somthing i aint doing :p ... Thanks for replying so quick haha everything is coming together.. Before i forget what do you mean with the other MOBO when you said but you have got to wait for it? also im not a big fan of MSI since everyone i used to know that had MSI got theres blown to bits in like what 7+ months not higher then a year and i have read that ASUS motherboards are extreemly reliable next to MOBO as INTEL MSI enc..

Its cooler will cover 1 slot below the PCI-E slot, and that's all. mini HDMI = HDMI minimized, the card should come with an adapter to extend it back to normal size HDMI port.

MSI is quite good in Asia and EU ( at least some French friends told me ), not sure why it got so bad rep in US. If you're worry then you can get the Gigabyte B75M-D3H. It has more high quality components than both msi b75ma-g43 and asus b85m-plus, but 1 fan header only. As for waiting it's because the site there say "3-5 days for delivery" Or did I read it wrong :bounce:

Oh but i dont live in the USA lol... I live in the netherlands:p  But i just happen to know lots of friends that bought MOBO that are MSI (Friends from UK Germany also frence) They all got theres broken really quick and since we do the same things (Graphpics art designing, Game dev, PLAY LOTS OF GPU AND CPU RAPING games) i wasn't shure to get msi since i dont want to have to replace it whitin 6 months. Even do waranty is prob 36 months its just not worth the time :p .

Does it really make such big difference? I cant seem to figure it out :p  but you are the specialist. I'm asking this because i preffer the 2 4 pin thingys for the fan over the 1 only. and also FML shitty alternate site just got an error so i could save my setup... gota revert back to an old save of my components list so its gona take a while to find the rest.

Also do you know anny cheaper ram with nearly the same decent preformance is the Crossair? i mean with Crossair its almost like mac you pay for the name when there are DDR3 1600 cards that are evenly good for a cheaper price.

Just get the cheapest 1600mhz cas9 kit you find there. There won't be any different in performance or reliability, especially when you can't OC ram using B75 chipset.

As for the mobo, Giga one has high quality mosfets for power design, plus some other exclusive features like Dual BIOS in case one of the BIOS failed ( wrong version, failed update or similar ).

Gota think about it:p  btw is http://www.alternate.nl/Arctic/Arctic+F12_Pro_PWM/html/... the fan you where talking about? also since the MOBO you are saying ius better the MSI one do i still get the PWM case fan since the MOBO only has 1 plug for PWM and i think that one is going to be taken by the CPU fan?

Ok awsome im gona check the specs of that MOBO really quick and compare them to the otherone even do i know you are a specialist :p  But this is gona be pretty interesting i can hook up 6 screens to that thing and run 3d on 3 of them (i already have 4 3d screens s..) this is gona be interesting.

But what about my motherboard? Doesn't it have some crappy Intel Hd graphics drivers? i mean its not like im goona hook up 3 screens and expect top quality from them whilst running on intel HD graphics all i want them to do is show me Google chrome and some other htings like word.

3350p doesn't have an IGP to make those ports behind your board usable, and even if you change to another CPU that does have an IGP, you can't make an Intel GPU and a AMD/nVidia GPU work together in most situations.

The assholes! Still wonder how i got it to work on my old PC. i used both DVI and VGA port on the MOBO (CPU is core to quad 3G 3.3GHZ) and the one on an really old ATI GPU with 1 DVI 1 HDMI and somthin else i dont remember. I hooked up 4 screens to it and it worked fine.. Hell that thing runs better then most PC's today if we are talking bout games.
