Thanks guys, so you think I'll have a pretty solid build with these parts? I was up in the air with a i5 build vs. the AMD, but I figured I'd be better off going with AMD since I was trying to save money.
just bought the msi 790fx gd 70 board last week. really like it alot. might give that one some thought. really good for tweaking. i have a 710 triple core (non black edition)a full 1000mhz over stock with this board. great O.C.s with this board. 4 X16 slots is nice too. and the 955 is a better deal since the new c3 versions clock up so well. getting a 955 next pay day to complement the new msi board. confident i can have the 955 clocked to 4.0 or more since i'm under water. otherwise good pile of parts. should "make it jump, esse!"
I figured the case had enough fans for ventilation unless I wanted to put smaller ones on the side door. I figured the cpu cooler and video cards stock fan would be enough to keep the system stable. Should I really buy more fans?
I don't agree that more fans are needed, at least not until you've set it all up and tried it out and found out that you aren't satisfied with the temps. But the HAF is one of the best cooling cases, so that is unlikely.
