    BXC... is marked as being 'For China'. I'm not sure what that means exactly, but probably a lower price to boost sales.

    BXF... is 'Fanless'. Don't have a clue whether that means it ships with a massive passive cooler (haven't heard of Intel making any), or just no heatsink. (EDIT: Looks like it's no heatsink. If you're going to OC it, that's probably fine, but given it's the same cost you might as well get a stock cooler.)

    CM8... is the tray one, which is sold by the the thousand to OEMs.

    BX8... is going to be the one you want.
  3. Ok Thanks I will use a corsair 100i + the new Formula VII

    WHAT DO YOU THINK
  5. I'm not a massive fan of the ROG boards, but if you're actually going to really push the OC, they're probably the way to go.

    The EVGA B-series aren't that great, IIRC. If you're looking at that kind of build, I'd look at getting one of these: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750bbefx

    You've got two different CPU coolers in there, and the stuff from the GPU to the Zalman cooler is duplicated.
  6. should I get only corsair coolers?
  7. Plenty of people make good coolers. You only need one, though.
  8. I need 3, one for the cpu and two for the gpu.

  9. Oops - I didn't spot that those were GPU coolers.

    You'll also need a bigger PSU for twin 780s with serious OCing. I'd look at around 850W.
  10. 1- should I buy 3 coolers from the same brand, ex: one H100i and two H75? Tree zalman?

    2- why not¸1000 or 1200w?
  11. 1) Doesn't matter in the slightest. I don't think Corsair make any GPU coolers, though. Make sure your GPU coolers fit the specified cooler. Also, unless you intend to OC them heavily, the stock coolers from the GPUs tend to be pretty reasonable.

    2) Not much point in spending more.

    Notice that a build using an overclocked FX-8350 and dual HD 7970s only draws 750W... you won't need anywhere near 1000W, esp since the 4790K is going to be drawing as much as ~125W less than an overclocked 8350.

    It's for Playing games on a 50' 4k but eventually withh 3 50' 4k's
  14. Neat.

    There's still little point in getting extra PSU power, as it doesn't really affect performance. You have enough or you don't.

    The exception is if you think you'll add a third GPU in future. Given the amount of display you want to drive, I'd be thinking ~1000-1100W.
  15. Just another thing to note - when using the Kraken G10, get some small heatsinks to stick on the VRMs. In conjunction with the fan that will keep them cool.
  16. Do you have a picture or a video of this?
  17. Sure, this is me fitting them and the g10 to my gtx 680:





    I found them on ebay, plus get some good thermal adhesive tape.
  18. ok, yeah zalman lq310 is same size. i was thinking if two 780 are 1200$ should I look for one titan blank.....lol $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
