Hello Toms & people


I was thinking of buying a new PC, and i have been asking a few times a few places, and 1 time here on toms! But.. My old question can be found in this URL http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1991712/run-fp... together with a link to my old build

Ive done some more research from when i posted that, and would like some advice and the build ive come up with now, and what i can do with it, in therms of overclocking CPU, Video editting, Shadowplay and avg. fps in games like BF4 on max settings.
The new build can be found here http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Noobbuilder45/saved/3xAj

And also any thoughts on the color scheme? - And will all this fit into a Cooler Master CM Scout II Case? Or any suggestions on a new case aswell? (im really worried about the external radiator on the H100i on the case i got now)

More about : advice

The thing is, i allready have that PSU - It says "Purchased" under the Pcpartpicker site.. - And the one you linked might be good in performance, but i dont like the look of it, think its hidious tbh, but thats just my opinion
Ive also got the keyboard, mouse, 1 of the SSDs, the HDD. The price right now for the build in the link is around 1700 dollars - But i have no issue going to 2000-2200 USDs tho.

you might get problems with that psu overtime pops because of its bad capacitors but whatever. the build looks great but its better to go with only 1 ssd that motherboard my... god its very powerfull i mean its brilliant so is the other parts so i dont think theres anything wrong except the psu also the water cooling will fit in the case fine

Modernwarfare, the thing im worried about is all the videos ive seen of the case i got using a H100i is that it has to be ontop and placed externally on the outside of the case. which i dont like

You can but it on bottom but it will be a REALLY tight probably. Or you can remove the hdd cages and put it in the front. I saw this one build on pcpartpicker and he was doing a water cooling loop and removed the hdd cages(not on this case) and his wouldnt screw in but it was in a spot where it wouldnt move. BTW here is a build with A WAY better color scheme then everyones. Also, I highly recommend just selling that psu, its terrible for this big of a budget of build.

I just removed all the parts that you already have, better color scheme because of the cpu cooler, ram, graphics card, and motherboard. Also for the psu, I recommend this psu http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1850bbef...
