why two SSD's and no hard drive?

The corsair H60 is expensive and not even as good as a decent air cooler . You dont need it

It says the one (60gb) is for Intel Smart Response Technology, so I thought maybe itll be even faster with two. Lol

Which brand of fan do you recommend?
And if you dont mind me asking, how was your experience with Cyberpower? Did it start out of the box?

I have never bought from cyber power


The smart response tecnology caches what it used most often on your hard drive so you get the speed of an ssd but your main storage should be on a mechanical hard drive .

The CM Hyper 212 evo is good and cheap , but there are other air coolers that are just as good

Damn, reviews got me nervous.

So I could still have 60GB and just make the HD a cheap 500GB?
The CM 212 was option so I changed that.

Thanks a ton for helping me out!

Thats the idea with the hard drive and ssd cache drive .

Windows works out what you use and load most often and stores a fast booting / fast loading copy on the ssd .

There are sometimes complaints on this mb about cyberpower and waiting times . Sometimes I think their builds are questionable too . Yours needs a 500 watt psu . A 700 unit wont hurt , but it also wont help

Okay, thank you. I switched the main HD to a 500gb SATA III. The 700 was recommended as it said I took 645w. Thanks a lot
