Hi, was just wondering if anything in this build will conflict with anything, this is my first build. Also, is this PSU sufficient enough for this build? 650w seems kinda low but I got it with a great combo deal on newegg in my cart. It is a gaming rig build. Anyone see any problems with this build?

I'm worried the PSU won't be enough when I OC my CPU to about 3.9 with any added case fans and CPU cooler. The GPU isn't going to get much more OC since the GTX 570 isn't OC friendly. Keep in mind this is my first PC build and I'm a n00b, especially when it comes to OCing...

I just want to make sure everything is ok with this build? Could I get a small recommendation for one more small case fan. I'd like a CPU Cooler but have no idea what to get. I'm looking to spend about $30 on one and this will be a purely air cooled system with no extreme OCing going to happen beyond 3.9 on the CPU or so. Any recommendations? Is the Hyper 212 a good option and will it fit in my case/mobo? Do I need good thermal paste too? If anyone could recommend that, would be much appreciated...thanks for the help guys.

Have this all in my cart now so fast responses would be nice... :kaola:

I went ahead and put the Corsair 750w in my cart instead to be safe. Anyone have any recommendations for my other questions?

Is a hyper 212+ a good CPU Cooler for the x6? It is cheap and looks like it would be great according to reviews...

Any recommendation on a decent case fan?

Well, I just placed my order. I got a Hyper 212+, Arctic Silver 5, Cooler Master Red LED Sickleflow case fan. Wish me luck in no DOA parts in this build... :sarcastic:

Pretty good build, there might be a slight problem with your blue sata cables, due to your video card length, but your only using one hd so that won't be a problem unless you try to do 3 or more.

Also as a note if your going sli their are better options for same price, dual 16x pcie slots.

Hehe, nah. This is going to be a single GPU build the 570 is more than enough GPU power right now. Won't have any problems with running games on it. If this build lasts me two years, I'll be happy.

You know, I looked at the dimensions of the Scout Sniper case before I purchased but it has me a little concerned. I couldn't find out how deep in the drive bays come back into the case...so I had no idea how much room I had for my GTX 570. That has me concerned because it is a big card and one reviewer said he had trouble sitting a 5850 inside his case. That is kinda disturbing because a GTX 570 is about a inch longer...can anyone confirm for me that this will fit in my case? Man I'm screwed if it can't.

The card itself is 10.5 inches long I believe. Dimensions on the case are...19.20" x 8.60" x 19.50". Pleaaaaaaaase fit lol.
