  1. thats a fairly horrible mix of parts IMO

    what are you using it for?
  2. games mostly battlefield 3.
    sometimes encoding.
    I was thinking of buying i5-2500k but since im using it as encoding movies, i think im going w i7.
    and to run battlefield 3 wo any lag. i thought i needed at least gtx 570 sli and to support sli i need more than 900w. thats why im going w 1000w.
    and other than that, i just bought whatever i thought its compatible.
  3. Use a Z68 motherboard . The Lucid Virtu drivers will let you use quick sync and still run the graphics cards

    The cpu cooler is not a great performer and definitely not good value for money .
    More so when you consider how cool running the sandy bridge processors are .
    The Hyper 212 evo instead

    The tall heat spreaders on the RAM could be a problem with any large cpu cooler .

    900- 1000 watts is right for GTX 570 SLI , but the XION brand is not one that gets recommended here a lot . Have you read good independent reviews of the unit? If not then better to stick with a more mainstream brand
  4. i have changed cpu fan to hyper 212.
    then what about this? COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RSA00-AMBAJ3-US 1000W
    do u think its a good one?
    That xion had 4 stars out of 5 but only 2ppl joined that survey.
  5. What is your budget?
  6. $1800 just for tower.
