New Setup - Haf XB. Need opinions

Hello everyone!

I'm on my final thoughts on actually buying and building my new setup. For this I've already bought the Coolermaster Haf XB. The current is as follow:

ASRock Z77 WS
i7 3770k
kraken x60
GTX660 asus SLI
250 samsung ssd
coolermaster 750 psu


4x SILENT WINGS 2 PWM 140mm 1500rpm (push/pull on radiator)
1x SILENT WINGS 2 PWM 120mm 1500rpm (outtake rear)
2x SILENT WINGS 2 80mm 2000rpm (outtake lower rear)

as for ram I'm not sure yet, but I' thinking Avexir pulsing red.

Any thoughts on the motherboard, pro/cons and or other major things would be Greatly appreciated!

  2. Anyone?
  3. I don't know about ASRock mobo, they seem to be more of a hit or miss proposition, when it comes to reliability ASUS and Gigabyte are the top 2, and let's not forget MSI either. If high value per cost is your motto I would consider MSI before I would touch ASRock.

    From what I've been told ASRock should do some awesome mobos as thats kind a all they are doing. I've been told that MSI tends to lack on quality on their mobos. I'm so confused as to what to buy on this matter... My first idea was the get the Sabertooth since I'm getting asus 660s anyway, just to make it look all neat.
  5. If you want to take uncertainty factor out of the equation for motherboards, Sabertooth is as good as it gets, I highly recommend ASUS as well.
  6. All these mobos! I just realized that my Haf XB can actually contain EATX mobos. So now I'm thinking about buying a Asus Maximus V Formula since my gfxs are gonna be looking pretty similiar in design!
