I recently bought all new components to build my PC and i was looking to see if anyone could tell me if these are all good and if they would work well with each other. I know some stuff but not all like some of you. If someone can plz coment on this it would be greatly appreciated.
Will the video card support this without it over heating or should I get an alternate GPU cooler and if so which one is good for it. Im not to familiar with the liquid cooling stuff. Thanks for all the help.
Note: When you install the CD MB/Sytem drivers DO NOT install Ai Suite from the CD. That program will lock your keyboard out. There is a fix at the product webpage if you need Ai Suite. I don't use it at all, but I did originally install the program and it did indeed lock my keyboard until I uninstalled it. The latest version 907 BIOS works very well. Some of the earlier BIOS versions have a few bugs you may want to avoid (temp sensor readings). The BIOS that the board comes with works well although I have the SE edition, I think it's version 404 or maybe 502.
Try to go with a PSU from the 1st or 2nd tier listings on the link I gave. 600-750 watts should be fine, but be sure you get adequate amps on the +12v rails. The PC Power and Cooling I listed has a very powerful single 60a +12v rail. Quad rails with 18a x 4 (or higher) should work well for you.
I use the Thermaltake Tough Power 700w 18a x 4 with no problems on my system. I have this OCZ 600w 12v 18a x 4 as my backup PSU for my main system.
ok so ill return that one that i got and get a pcp&c. Pcp&c is a good psu though but they dont have any fancy lights but i guess i need power not fancy, huh
thx i hope it works fine, is that mobo recent or is it and older model cause i see all these 680i mobos i just want the most recent mobo and the extreme one id for ddr3 ram and thats pricey stuff there. sry bout all the questions i just wanna make sure its a good system im building.
