Hello all I have a few last questions before i purchase the last few components in my new system.
What i have already
Case: NZXT switch 810
PSU: Corsair 850w
HDD 1-2tb & 1-3tb
What i want to know is will my PSU be sufficient to go dual 670's and WC in the future?
Yes, your PSU will be more than enough to run dual gtx 670; even dual 680's if you so please.
As for RAM, I'm not sure. I did not install my RAM under the Cooler. I just put them on the slots that are away from the cooler. Should be easy enough since you only have two sticks. If so, anyone of those should be fine.
people have been saying that 600-700 watts is enough for a SLI 670 due to it being really power efficient.
if you plan on overclocking get a Heatsink fan ivy bridge gets really hot so you can go the lower end for price to performance or go for a bit higher for nice cooling capabilities and a higher OC(won't get much of a difference after 4.5 GHz for gaming)
ASrock extreme4 is really good some people just rate it bad because they might not have updated their bios i have been having a really good time with it it also has 2x PCI 3.0 slots so you can use that for SLI
Hey thanks for getting back to me so quickly. So i should go with short ram because i may max out all 4 dimm slots. Can you recommend a better cooler. Ideally i'd go with this but that may break the bank. Also can i place the whole bay reservoir behind the front panels keeping it hidden from the front? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12222/ex-wat-162/XSPC...
And if i went this route i know ram height wouldn't matter.
you might not but whats really nice about 500R is that it can fit 2x h100s so it might not fit 1 triple but it can fit 2 dual radiators one on top of the case and one in front
you might be able to fit the water if you took out the brackets in the middle near the front and leave 1-3 brackets for your SSD/HDD but i have never tried out this water cooler in this case yet so it might be a challenge
if you really want to try to fit that whole triple radiator i would suggest going with a full tower instead of a mid tower so you can find that extra room to get that thing in
EDIT: saw the dimensions of the reservoir pretty sure you can fit it in 500R but not the Rad i tried thinking of ways to fit the rad inside the case found none so far thought of trying to put it on the side panel but i still think it would be to big unless you are putting the rad outside i suggest getting a bigger case
