Hello,

I currently have a AMD FX8120 a Gigabyte 990XA-UD3 motherboard and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM. I am thinking about maybe replacing it with a Intel Ivy bridge build - based on a 3770K and 16GB of RAM. Any Idea's or suggestions would be appreciated thanks.

My 2-week old build is as follows:

i7 3770K
EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard
Hyper 212 EVO (idle temps 30 C)
Corsair Vengeance 32 GBs RAM (RAM is inexpensive)
EVGA GTX 660Ti (3 GBs with backplate)
Corsair AX850 PSU
HAF X Case

The only item that I would consider changing would be the Corsair AX850 because it has absolutely NO markings for the connector ports. I would go for the AX860i or the AX1200i both of which do have markings (silk screened, white)

Thanks for the idea, looks smart would a Corsair H100 be suitable for cooling this as I already have one
