Hello i have made a previous thread for my new build but i have made some modifications

Tower: Please recommend one. I am looking at the HAF 932 AMD or ATCS 840 if you think there is a case that will fit the water cooling system without trouble.


Graphics card X2: Gigabyte 3GB 7950 PCI-E VGA Card


Hard Drive: Seagate 3.5" Barracuda 3TB SATA3 7200rpm 64MB Cache Hard Dis


Screen X2 : Acer 21.5" S220HQLbd 5ms 1920x1080, DVI Backlight LCD (getting 2 more i already have one the exact same, just to clear this up)


Motherboard: Crosshair V Formula


PSU: HX-1050


CPU: AMD AM3+ x8 FX-8150 3.6Ghz CPU


Optical drive: Lite-On SATA DVD RW


Ram X4: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8GB Dual Channel DDR3


OS: Microsoft MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM


Water cooling system: XSPC Rasa 750 RS360 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit (Please tell me what else i need for cooling GPU and CPU i understand there is some parts with this kit but I'm not sure what else i need)

I'm not using a SSD because there is not point they aren't that much faster and cost to much money.

id change a lot of things but tell me what is your budget and what parts you do not need. at this level of hardware, not getting a SSD doesnt make sense

My budget is around $3000 Australian dollars
I might get a SSD but I might get one when they become cheaper and larger

But cheaper is better this will be used for high end gaming and video editing and photo editing and a little software production

this build will be air cooled since it is pretty simple and the cooler i got you is very effective. only drawback is the colour.

id suggest not running more than 2 monitors since 3 monitors dont help in games. they only really benefit you in MMOs and racing games

heres my take. i threw in a SSD. make sure when you get the rig, set it up in AHCI mode and put the OS into the SSD

Not that your build isn't good but i strongly dislike intel, i prefer AMD the motherboard that i have supports my selected CPU and is a good board for over clocking, the CPU get very hot when you put it at 5Ghz and a traditional CPU cooler wont work, this is why i have chosen watercooling to cool my CPU (i scraped the idea of cooling my GPU they dont need it) im bringing over a lot of hard drives from my other rigs thats why i first went with the cosmos 2 but that cant fit a triple fan rad. If you know of any case that can support my motherboard, graphics, 6 hard drives and my watercooling please let me know.

i dont see the point of getting a AMD chip when a intel core i3 can beat a fx chip in most applications

the cosmos 2 can fit a 360mm rad but it isnt the case that you want to be messing with watercooling

Will a cosmos 2 happily fit a H100 CPU cooler

It will solve alot of my problems if you can just tell me (and link me) to a motherboard that supports i7, i5 and all my other hardware

Thank you for all you other comments

so you are doing work? if not, a i5 is the same as i7 in games.

if you need all necessary features plus a couple of extra, a gigabyte z77x-ud3h will be a good choice

if you want to have more of a premium board, i would get a gigabyte z77xud5h
