    Looks pretty nice, switch out the HSF for this one though

    COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-GP 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve

    What PSU brand is that 850W you have?

    Here's a monitor I like:
    DELL S2309W Full HD Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor
  2. Thanks Jbaker. I was proud of my self for this build actually! Lol

    I have an Antec PSU

    That monitor is really nice! I might grab that actually.

    I do have a question about the HSF, Is the v8 not good? or is it just over priced?
  3. the v8 is over priced and over rated
  4. It's not really that overrated, it's just overpriced imo
  5. I actually have a nice little combo deal going on newegg...bout 30 dollars off with the Mobo and the v8, I wonder if maybe its worth it since im saving the money?
  6. Admin, thanks for the suggestion man. I really appreciate any suggestions you guys are giving me its a huge help!
  7. well if its a combo it should be a good deal
