  1. That looks like a pretty decent system all around. I really don't suggest buying ram faster than 1600, but eh; nice rig either way! :)
  2. I'll just say the same thing as steddora has stated, very nice build...well balanced...ready for gaming :lol:
  3. Excellent, I did about 7 hours of research before i built this friggin thing, my only concern would be airflow and heat, as long as i keep it in a ventilated area i should be fine?
  4. I might would change the case to something better but other than that your rig is fine. Btw I might would get a tax 750 and put the extra bucks for a better case
  5. Yea it was a toss up on the case but i liked the overflow fans and the rear exhaust setup.

    Raidmax has always treated me well, i had a smilidon for like 6yrs.

    What kind of case do you suggest?
  6. cooler masters are notorious for good airflow for example haf 932 or haf x...

    i switched from a haf 932 to a raven03, partially cos i got bored but also because i have a dog and he loses a lot of hair so i needed a case with lots of filters (haf 932 didnt have filters everywhere this one does...)

    getting filters and preventing dust build up (there will be some dust coming in anyway) by also having big positive air pressure (more intakes than exhausts) should help...

    although filters apparently make the case louder and restrict airflow ( i didnt notice any change in temps after the move, and i got 5 sickleflows and a akasa venom all at 1900 rpm on top of all stock fans that come with the cases)

    hope this helps... cheers
  7. It did help, on my other forumn i'm more concerned with my psu and not getting enough airflow to it to keep everything cool. I have two top fans one exhaust fan and one in the front.

    Everyone i talk to says yea that should be fine since i'm not OC'in anything and just using the stock configurement.
  8. I really have been liking my new Rosewill Thor V2. More airflow than I could ever dream. With the pair of 120mm's on my processor, cheap coolermaster 120mm in the bottom and the stock fans that came with the case; with all of the fans on high it literally causes a wild amount of airflow under my entire desk and behind my Movie setup with my 47" LCD. :)

    And yeah, you shouldn't have any issues at stock. But if you buy some extra fans for it when/if you have heat issues; I'm sure you'll be good to roll.
