I'm trying to decide between the Asus P6x58de and the Asus P6T. I could save 40 dollars on the P6T and so i was wondering which one would be better overall based on performance and value for my system. Also, if I do not plan to overclock, do I need to buy the Cooler Master 212 Plus? And how easy is it to remove the stock cooler that comes with the i7 with the Cooler Master? Thanks and if also possible, can people check to see if everything will be compatible as well? I hope I made my build correctly. Thanks again everyone.
IMO the Asus is a bit nicer, but the P6T would be fine. Even if you're not overclocking the CM 212+ is a lot quieter and cooler than the stock i7 heatsink. IMO it's worth getting.
I was looking to get the EA 750W with the Three hundred as a combo deal at newegg. It totaled to about 150 with tax and shipping included. Do you think it would be better for me to opt for the XFX black edition instead? Is being modular have a big impact on air flow and clutter and stuff? And how easy is it to remove the stock heatsink and place the 212 on? Thanks
