Havent built a computer for 7 years so i am a little lost on a few pionts, hoping you experts can sort it out.
I live in a trailer in the desert so in the summer the inside of the trailer can reach 100 degree f easy not to mention iit is very dusty, why i thought the antec p183 case would be best
1. Not sure what CPU cooler to use with this setup
2. I dont know PSU will fit properly in the case i choose.
3. Not sure i have right case for the setup
Case: Antec P183 Black Aluminum / Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
PSU: CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-950TX 950W ATX12V v2.3/EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
My concern about the desert heat is the computer will be at 100 degrees becuase I dont run the airconditioning in the trailer, so the processor will start out at 100f. As i understand it any cooler including stock coolers can only cool down to ambient temperature which in my case will be 100f in the summer.
And yes i did a bit of research, most my choices were based on price and building a computer that will hold up for the next 7 years, i hope.
I would be a $6000 comp in a trailer if i wanst so cheap, but i do love my games.
I have deciced that the PSU will fit the case but since i am leaning towards the CORSAIR Hydro H70 for cooling and the P 183 case only has 2 exaust fans i was thinking of using COOLER MASTER HAF 912 Case and mounting it out side the case on top, but i am still concernd about excess dust build up in the computer.
The average optimal number of CPU cores suggested by the test results is 2.75, showing a clear trend towards at least three CPU cores.The question of whether the CPU or GPU is most important is easily answered. If you don't have a multi-core CPU, then upgrade it. If you have a dual-core CPU at around 3 GHz, then invest your money into a graphics card, as most games are GPU-limited. This is not something that will change with new DirectX 11 games.
