Building a new PC soon and i plan on overclocking my CPU, I've read reviews on h100i about noise, so I'm leaning towards air coolers. If its an air cooler, its needs to black to match my build, specs below. I don't want an ugly noctua cooler. Any suggestions related to the build would also be nice. I will be using pc for gaming, conversions and light editing. Thanks
On another note, do you plan on doing SLI in the future? If you don't, then why the 2011 platform? If you do plan on SLI in the future, be aware that these midtower cases with bottom mounted PSU's leave little room for more than 2XSLI. The space between the bottom PCIE slot and your PSU is barely enough for a dual slot card in the third slot for 3XSLI. I know, my build is similar to yours. I don't think I would reasonably squeeze a third card in the bottom PCIE without a taller case to provide more physical and/or breathing room for the card.
The Dark Knight works well -- I'm running it with an almost identical setup to the one listed above. It's bloody HUGE, though, and a word of caution: the cheap fan that comes with it died, and I almost fried my processor. If anyone gets this, invest in TWO (for push/pull) 120mm fans -- consider the extra $25 insurance for the $350 4820K.
This one is pretty easy First up your build looks pretty sweet (but bloody hell Aus prices are high) and if it were my build I'd go with the Deluxe mobo and the 780Ti if there is money to spare.
