Hey great people of the forum,
A few last questions before I buy it all..

Will these components fit together/work together:

AMD FX 4350 (CPU 4x 4.2Ghz)
Corsair Hydro Series H100i (CPU Cooler)
ASRock 970 Extreme4 (Mobo)
Cooler Master Elite 430 (Case)
ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2T-2GD5 (GPU - Already bought this one)
G.Skill Ripjaws - Geheugen (2x4 DDR3 1600 MHz)
ThermalTake Berlin 630Watt (PSU)

It is true that a 8 core CPU runs hotter then a 4 core CPU?
(I COULD make the AMD FX 4350 into an 8350, but afraid it runs hotter since I want it overclocked to at least 0.5Ghz, could always get it later though).

And speaking of OC - the CPU thermal design power is 125W whilst the motherboard can support 140W, does that mean with the OC that I can't surpass it? (Still a newbie) Or does this not matter?

That about raps it up, thanks in advance!
Greetings, Mike.

Change the PSU with a better brand, ThermalTake is a risk if you are going to OC

Yeah, should go with corsair. Is the CX600 will be enough :c ?

Don't worry about heat. You should get a 8350 and the H100i is overkill. Get the hyper 212 evo, it is cheaper and you won't need anything better.

I prefer H100i, I love the glowing "corsair" light.

Well then for sure get the 8350, a 4350 would just be pointless and is far inferior to the 8350.

Wouldn't he be worry about the price ?? but of corse that you will get a better performance out of the 8350 than the 4350. but the FX 6300 is the same price as 4350 on Newegg right now.

Ye the lights are nice until they go out after a few months of use. I had two of them in both of my AMD/ATI rigs. The first one the LED's went out after about two months of use and the second the same and then a month after that the pump in the second one went out. If I were you I would stay away from the H100i at all costs. Get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and some lights for you case and save some money for other things.

Hi there,
So the PSU is a risk for OCing?
Is it REALLY necessary? (Only want to achieve about 0.3-0.5Ghz)

Thanks!

Hello there,
A Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO?
Out of benchmarks the 412 Slim comes out the better.
But is enough to keep the CPU cool when OCing?
That is why I wanted the water cooler (H100i).

But then again OCing is not THAT necessay.
Thanks!

Hi,

The FX8350 it is, if I don't get such an expensive cooler, I can definitely get that CPU.
Isn't the Slim 412 better? It comes out better in benchmarks?

Thanks!

There are bad reviews about ThermalTake, and if you want to prolong your PC's life It'd be best if you buy PSU from a good brand.

Hi man,

That is the problem, I bought this with my GPU from Germany.
It's the ThermalTake Berlin series btw, so IF I am going to buy one (budget is already far stretched) which one would you recommend?

Thanks again!

Is it this one?

If it is, since your budget is already stretched and this has 3 years warranty & 80PLUS, maybe you should go with it. I was bit harsh, and wasn't thinking budget wise. You'll be ok with it as long as you don't do SLI and a lot of OC.

Hey bud :) 

Yep that's the one.
It is a sort of a budget build, and I'll do no more OCing then 0.5Ghz
So it's quite a little IMO.
And nope, no SLI :D 

Ok man thanks a lot! Have all my answers :)
