Hey all, new here well this is my second build (first one by my self).
So my last build was about a couple of days ago. Me and my brother built it. i picked the parts and paid 1500 approx but he loved how well it ran so he paid me 1700 and bought it off me. So im building again and need advice. my old build was as follows:
Cpu-i7 2600k ( want to use the same one)
Mobo: Gigabyte p67a-ud3(we bought 2 of these because we found them when they werent on sale so ill use that one till the p8p67 pro comes out then ill switch to that)
Ram: 8gb's XMS3(suggest what to use)
Case: Haf-932(wanna try something different)
GPU: Evga GTX 570 SC(dont know what to get for this one, dont want just an identical system but if thats the best for my price range thats fine. ( will probably SLI or XF with whatever i get in future)
PSU: Corsair HX-850 (suggest something new wanna try new supplies.)
HD Samsung f3-raptor(we bought 2 for raid, but ended up using only one, so i will use this)
Heatsink: Hyper 212+ (want to try H50 this time)
WILL BE USED FOR GAMING. and my monitor resolution is 32" 1080p (1920x1080)
Case / PSU - HAF-932 is outdated .... been replaced by HAF-X 942 and yes, the additional features are well worth the extra dough. HX series are great but overpriced compared to equal quality units with same exact performance / quality (all PSU's below get same 10.0 performance rating on jonnyguru.com as HX). Options:
Priced to compete with high-end air coolers, the Kühler offers similar performance and a lower noise level. It's the first compact liquid cooler I've tested that can honestly be considered as competition for the likes of the Cooler Master V6 GT, Prolimatech Megahalems, and Thermalright Venomous X. ..... The performance of the Antec Kühler H20 620 was excellent, exceeding that of every other water cooler I've tested and encroaching on the performance range of the very best air coolers.
The Antec Kuhler 620 beats the H50 by 7.2C w/ stock fans and 9.4C with both using same Delta fan.
