  3. Oh no, you won't ever pull 400W from the wall. Actual 560ti power draws are under 200W... sorry I would give you a link but I'm on the laptop atm, and don't have all my references to hand. My overclocked i7 2600K and 5870 never draw 400W from the wall though.

    oh wow only 200w :o thats pretty cool.. and yeah I didn't selecting a best answer would close the thread :P. Hmmm not sure if I have anymore questions.. I have a youtube video i'm gonna try to follow when i'm building the computer. I guess I should also buy some paste for the cooler an cpu.. and probably a fan or 2.
  7. The Hyper 212+ comes with adequate paste. Yes the HAF 912 can use more fans.
    Look in the stickies at tyhe top of the forum for build instructions.

    Does it?, k cool that will work, yeah think theres a front area for a fan, so i'll go browse newegg for a front fan and big one for the top.
    Sweet I'll defintiely also go check the stickies at the top too. :)

    EDIT: I did not find a how to build sticky at the top of anywhere. Also I was looking at people pictures of their systems and some dude mentioned he had gotten a new Sound card.. I can just take my SB X-FI Xtreme audio out of this computer and just use the cd to install it on my new system right?
  9. Yes you can install your sound card if you like.
