Solved Tips and thoughts for gaming rig Tags: Build Gaming Systems Last response: February 22, 2012 9:21 AM in Systems Share chaoticsentinel February 21, 2012 9:59:43 AM Would like to build a gaming rig very soon and i have the following build in mind. MoBo: ASRock z68 Extreme3 Gen3 CPU: i5-2500k CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD6870 RAM: KINGSTON 1333MHZ DDR3 (4GBX2) Harddisk: HITACHI 1TB 7200/SATA3 Power unit: Seasonic 620W modular Casing: CoolerMaster Elite 430 Appreciate any tips/thoughts regarding the build. Am looking to overclock to run at 4.5ghz and to be able to play most games at least at high quality. Also, is 620W enough to power the setup and would also like to know if i would require an extra fan, assuming i'm utilizing the two fans provided with the case. Thanks!

To pull out quicker the hot air from the case you can put another 120mm fan on top. Share mikerockett a b 4 Gaming February 21, 2012 10:39:32 AM Looks like a solid build, as mentioned by sosofm, the PSU is plenty and is a good quality brand. If your not planning to OC, the stock case fans should be ok but depends on your climate really. If your OC'ing id say yes, stick in the extra fan on top. m 0 l Related resources Budget gaming rig, any tips? - Forum help ! gaming rig tips : choosing the right components - Forum New gaming rig. need some helpful tips! - Forum Building new Gaming RIG - Need some tips on what to get - Forum Thoughts on gaming rig - Forum Can't find your answer ?
