More about parts compatible
  1. get this instead of the v8
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099
    They should all fit
  2. I know i should but i like the looks of the v8 but are the parts compatibel

    Well, that's subjective, so it is ultimately your choice. But the V8 is not that good of a cooler, especially compared to the likes of Thermalright, Noctua, etc. It should cool first, and style second, in my opinion.
  4. but are the parts compatible and will the v8 if i do get it fit in the z77 saber tooth

    Rest of your parts seems okay, the DF case is a little slim, so I'm not sure if the cooler will fit height wise. Why not an Antec 302 ? That will fit the tallest of coolers and has a cooling performance far, far better than the DF (which is actually poor in cooling, combined with the V8, and if you OC, may not be great for your CPU, since you are spending the money on aftermarket coolers).

    I'd also recommend, instead of the LG burner, a Lite-ON (iHas) series or ASUS equivalent.
  6. They're all compatible, but you do realize, thats a fairly weak video card compared to what you could have if you weren't paying $100 more than you have to on the motherboard.

    Also, that is a non-K CPU, so you do not need an aftermarket CPU cooler at all

    I would drop down to this motherboard:

    Forget about the CPU cooler altogether if you're not buying a K model..

    And up the video card to either of these:

  7. i5 3450 makes more sense. The psu is excellent don't worry. Go with the hyper 212,it's brilliant.
  8. Believe me, I like the Sabertooth boards to, but its not going to make you game better, a stronger video card will.

    That case has only barely okay reviews due to poor cooling. Frequently referred to as Corsair's first and only failing in cases...

    If you want Corsair, get the 600 series, they are excellent.

    Yeah, I like those boards too (5 yr warranty). Maybe the OP is looking for long reliability ??
  11. i was thinking of sli ieng my 560 ti later

    yeah i was thinking of getting the 600t white but to save money I was going to go with the df85 but i trust you ill go with the 600t


    I think you'll like it. I recommended it to some friends a while back, and they seem to like it. It is not small (although not HUGE either).
  13. yeah i was thinking of getting the 600t white but to save money I was going to go with the df85 but i trust you ill go with the 600t
  14. so will the v6gt or the v8 fit on the z77 sabertooth
  15. omaroma11 said:
    that is a great case ;)
  16. omaroma11 said:

    A single, stronger video card is still the better option. Not only for power consumption, but also it eliminates the potential for micro-stuttering, and the fact that not all games can properly use an Sli/Crossfire setup.

    Any CPU cooler will fit on the Sabertooth, the question to be asked is, "will it fit in my case"?

    Well, I'm certain it will fit in the Corsair 600, and the Antec 302, but not sure about the DF case.
  19. so c70 or 600t
  20. If you're really bent on getting a cooler then you'll need the i5 3570K. Otherwise the 3450 in a cool case like 600t will work fine. You can always add fans when you sli,though gtx 570 would be better.

    +1 i would agree with this advice
  22. ill go with the 212 cooler
  23. what about the rosewil thor case
  24. omaroma11 said:

    then switch to i5 3570k . It's the sensible thing.
  25. omaroma11 said:
    what about the rosewil thor case


    Anandtech said some pretty good things about this case:

    "Able to compete even with enclosures nearly twice as expensive, I'd actually take it over Thermaltake's Level 10 GT just due to the comparative ease of assembly coupled with the less garish appearance. It's a better performer both acoustically and thermally than Corsair's 650D or 600T, too, at roughly the same price. Rosewill's Thor v2 isn't a homerun, but it's a very solid base hit, and there's no reason to think one more revision couldn't make it a top flight enthusiast case."

    Seems like a solid case (make sure it is the V2, not the V1). Although I don't find the looks that appealing.
  26. nah i will stick with the 600t

    T'aint my money 'mano. You can lead a horse to water... :whistle:
  29. Seeing as you'll sli in future,and you're getting high quality parts,you should a gtx570 to balance it out.

    :lol: very true
  31. Hopefully he'll get the 3570K and gtx 570. And an Asus burner.

    If he has any hope of that build gaming decently he will a nice case and cool looking mobo don't help nothing when your gaming hopefully he will realize that ;)
