I don't know what fans to get, what rpm and such. Define r3 comes with 2 stock ones, I read they're alright. The second fan on the Noctua NH-U12P SE2 is redudant so I was thinking of making that one a case fan, does that make any sense? It's a NF-P12. I was also thinking of getting a gentletyphoon as a top fan.
This is not just a gaming rig. The 16 GB ram is there for a reason and it's not going away. Out of curiosity how much is it going to hurt performance?
Do I need 750w or 850w psu?
Is it worth it to raid the hdd for 60$ extra?
Is is worth it to have a ssd for boot/OS?
Any parts I can switch out and save money without losing much performance?
Any obvious problems compatibility problems or parts not fitting in the case?
there are two models sports modular cable.... priced at $70 and $100 respectively after MIR.... the former seems like a better choice as it saves you more money...
however... if you looking for a higher efficiency psu... the raidmax is a good choice... though $30 expensive than lepa model... at least both model is cheaper than the corsair one... don't worry... these brand may not as popular as corsair... but the quality i can assure you will not be lower than corsair... also i suggested you taking a higher output psu so the next time you want to add second gtx 570 for sli at least it has more headroom than 750w psu.... don't buy a psu with just barely enough power to spare... you never know what you're gonna buy next for your pc....
