  1. Pictures of system coming soon
  2. I would spend the extra 7 Dollars for the CM 212+ HSF or the 212 EVO, You will get way better cooling for only a few extra dollars
  3. I cannot evauate the AMD part of your system, but ...

    Get a better PSU. Raidmax PSU's, while not total junk, tend to be overrated and have difficulty delivering rated power.

    I prefer Samsung and LG optical drives to Lite-On. That is admittedly based on a sample of one. I bought one Lite-On drive. It failed in 9 months. I have bought about a dozen Samsung and LG drives over the past few years. They are all still happily running.
  4. I agree with the part about the PSUs. Try this PSU instead:

    SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply $59.99

  5. Thanks for the feed back but ive already bought and built the system it was on a tight budget... the entire thing was under $600 so if that gives you any idea.
