Getting a new rig for my birthday and it's been a while since i've built my own so I'm looking for some advice. I've read up on a lot of other peoples builds and such and have put together a build that looks good to me but would like some other opinions. I'm mainly setting this up for FF 14 and Diablo 3 as well as something that will leave me options for upgradability in the next couple years. So how does this look?
Something i just thought of, If the h50 already has a thermal paste on it would i need to worry about scraping it off and using something else? Would it really make that big of a difference? 10 bucks is nothing really but I only need one application, maybe 2 in 5 years. Seems like a waste.
I agree. You can leave the Arctic Silver off your shopping list. It would be just a minor difference, if any, and Shin-Etsu is a well known and respected thermal compound supplier. I don't think Corsair cut any corners there.
The XFX Black Edition 750W and 850W PSUs are really outstanding performers. And a good value when compared to the other top-tier PSUs like the Corsair 850HX (same review score @ JonnyGuru).
