  1. does any one know if the zalman will run the above system or do i have to get a new psu??????
  2. i would suggest getting a new psu.
    zalman is not the even near the best psu maker.
    for cooler,depends on your budget,hyper 212 EVO is a good bang for buck.
    what's your max budget?
  3. As said - get a better quality PSU. Decent ones come from Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Enermex, and a few select units from other companies but the aforementioned are usually the ones where most if not all their units are solid.

    A Hyper 212+ or an Evo would be an excellent cooler (whichever is cheaper).
  4. thanks guys

    i may have to run with psu till i get some more fund's

    what psu would you recomend for the above system as i would be looking to crossfire two 7770
  5. will the hyper 212 EVO fit in my case?
  6. max budget and case name please?
