  1. That's a great PSU for dual GTX 760s. But I would look at a regular HDD, rather than the green drive. They tend to slow down when not in use. And they are not intended for a boot drive use.

    From WD:
    "Recommended use.
    WD Green hard drives are tested and recommended for use in PCs as secondary storage, external enclosures and other applications that require cool and quiet operation."
  2. It's more than enough , a good 750w would run those specs.
  3. WD GREEN cost me around 105 $ in my country and WD black cost me round 180 $ in my country
  4. WD Blue?
  5. Yeah, the Blue is the normal one purchased for general use.

    That's what I meant. How is the price of the WD Blue drives where you live?

    not available in my country...........
  10. OK. Point taken. Just be aware that the green drive may spin down occasionally. Or run at a slower RPM. And may not last as long.

    can you suggest me cpu cooler between these?
    Thermaltake Frio Advanced 58$
    Thermaltake Jing 61$

    i will use a z87 mobo with a core i5
  12. Thermaltake Frio
  13. +1^
    Agreed. The Frio has a better heat pipe contact with the CPU because of its direct contact design. It also has a bigger fan(s).

    getting it for 110$

    instead of 130$
  16. They are similar. I think the TX is older but has better caps and temp rating. But that's all I really know about them. Check with Jonny Guru: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Review_Cat&recatnum=13
