  1. SSD for boot drive!
  2. Unless you run 4 7970s OCed, you will only need 550W. Get the XFX 550W for $75. What motive do you have for getting a full tower case + that closed-loop cooler?

    I'm still a noob with PCs, so how would I use it, cause I never owned one.

    We I'm going to over clock the i5 and with the 2 7970s I would need at least 1000watts but I am also getting this for future upgrades too.
  5. That's what I read.
  6. That is wrong. 2 7970s will be fine on a 750W PSU, even after overclock. The only reason you should get a Full Tower is if you run a true water cooling setup with 2+ rads.

    Ah ok thanks for the advice dude. I might just keep it though only because I'm thinking kinda ahead for further modifications like you said water cooling and stuff. I do appreciate the tip though, I will really think about it.
  8. How many radiators do you plan to have? If just one, a Mid Tower like the Carbide 500R can house dual 120mm radiators up top.
  9. I'm still a novice, I know getting one for the processor isn't hard but for the gpu, would that require me dissembling the cards? Well not the whole thing haha
  10. There should be a mechanism for transferring the water to the cards to cool them.
  11. Hmm ok, Well I will look into it later, thanks though. Also forgot to mention another reason for the case, it was because of the 3 230mm fans that it comes with. I like that theres a lot of airflow for keeping it cool inside.
  12. Fair enough. It is still a good case.
