If it comes with the same heatsink as its big brother the 955 quad core you should be able to get it up to 3.2 without an aftermarket heatsink.

And get a 1TB samsung spinpoint, it should give you similar performance to the raptor for a ton less.



what about the rpms i mean would 10000 be way bigger than 7200 or you think in my build its no need ?

No, because the bits are much more densely packed on the 1TB drive it will read faster than the raptor, the only significant benefit the raptor provides is for large amounts of IO operations.

Your fans will either have a 4 pin connector which attaches to a molex connector from your PSU, or a 3 pin connector that goes to a fan header on your motherboard. I would just go with the fans in the case and add more later if you find you dont have enough air flow.

Once you put it together, go into bios and set the optical drive as the first boot drive so that you can install the OS. Just follow the manuals and assembly will go smoothly, but put in the CPU and put on the heatsink before you put the motherboard in the case, it may take ALOT of force to get it on and putting it on outside the case reduces stress on your motherboard.

After MIR that corsair is cheaper with that case than the second combo, and is significantly stronger than the one in the first combo. I would go for the corsair just because i know its solid and im not sure about the cooler master in the first one, the second one is 80+ silver so it should be good but it also costs you more.

dated my build and its now at $878.88 with Combo's and 3day S&H without Monitor or DVD drives and keybored and mice so that would be about $350.00 more so thats everything thank you verymuch guys
