  1. CM is not so good for psu. Try the Corsair 1 kwatt psu. Everything else is great.

    why do you think cooler master is not good for PSU ? what make corsair better?
  3. Build Quality of Corsair PSU's is much better then Cooler Master ones
  4. If you are building the machine for gaming get an Intel i5 not the i7. The i5 Sandy bridge has much better performance in gaming then the i7

    EDIT

    Here is a link with some proof of what I said

  5. Nice pick of parts for your build.
    You should look at the Corsair 600T case though.
  6. LGA2011 and 16GB of RAM for a gaming build? Say it ain't so.

    this is bad advice. you have to remember his budget is 4000 dollars.

    for the most part the 3960 is the faster cpu.

    OP if your budget is really 4000 dollars there is no reason you shouldnt get two, three, and maybe four 7970's. if you go that route a 7970 used about 225 watts of power. so you would need a 1200-1300 watt psu max
  8. No, if you want the fastest, buy two 780 ti.

    Radeons still have crossfire issues, and the 780 ti is faster anyway.

    And for a PSU go seasonic they are the best in the business and offer a 7 year warranty on the good stuff.

    Ps I am going to cry if you build a 3930k system with the liquid cooling and don't overclock it at least a little....

    Samsung 840 pro is a great drive to consider, that's what I would go for!
