    Your build looks pretty solid to me mate one thing though you need to change your ram to low profile type because it will conflict with the V6 aftermarket cpu cooler other than that looks great here some suggestions for ram RAM:G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR

    Yes as long as it's low profile otherwise no it won't it would be better to get 2 x 8 that's what i did when i had the v6
  4. ok sweet and do you see anything else that would be better than what i have?
  5. Not really you did a great job lol
  6. What do you thinks of the cooler master 212 hyper evo?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099

    won't take up any ram slots
  7. ya i have herd that that was a good one but comparibly how much difference is it between the two iand i chose the one i chose because of the asthetic look. so im not shure

  9. It's says it's compatible with 1155 and the reviews are good but cannot say out of personal experience. I just prefer to have more of a tower like cooler so my ram can get more air.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835154011 is what I use

    the V6 is better by about 3C to 5C in tests

    That one is better than EVO and V6 ;)
  12. ya i think im going to stay with the haf x i really like the looks of it but is my mother board gpu and things good
  13. I would recommend the storm sniper, but it costs $139 instead of the $99 I paid a year ago

    I don't blame you it's a kick ass case i have one to i gave it to my son though :D yes your motherboard is good and gpu 670 FTW enough said lol!
  15. ok thank you i will get to ordering it and do you think i should get aftermarket fans just for asthetic purposes and should i get a fan controller and last thing i am kind of confused on what cpu cooler to get. i rally appreciate your guys reply's
  16. The Seagate HDDs have had quite I high rate of failure apparently, to be safe I'd switch it with a Western Digital one.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136891
  17. ya i have heard things about all of them in my opinion its kinda luck of the draw so not sure ill do more research
  18. Don't bother with fan controller. Most of them are shoty or only work with certain fans. Paid $70 for a display fan controller and it dose not do a good job, but at least the extra ports work on it.

    Stick with the V6 if you want to spend that bit of extra cash.

    Also for aftermarket fans, try Gelid nanoflux baring fans. There are really quite and come with rubber screws. I have a few in my case.

    Also, if you want, try sound dampening foam. It reduces case noise and vibration.

    The fans you can add some if you like bro. A couple of these would probably do the trick (They also come with red or blue LEDs): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103091#top
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103072 if you want to overclock hardcore the v6 won't cut it otherwise it's fine for mildly overclocks
  20. are the sickle flow quiet and is there a better cpu cooler for the same price i also think im going to go with what ever 2tb 7200rpm hardrive is cheapest and in stock cause they all compare pretty similar
  21. The 2 TB HD you have listed is the cheapest internal drive on newegg (including shipping)
  22. Get a cheaper case, get a 7200 RPM HD.

    Just don't spend so much on a case, id get a 3770K and a decent $80 case over a $200 one

    I don't find them loud they will say the db specs you can check to see if you think that's load as for cpu cooler no there is nothing same price that's better than the v6
  24. The best silent fan so far

    I think he wants led fans red ;) but i might be wrong lol those are good though
  26. cool but it won't match his theme if not red though
  27. Yeah can't seem to find any red on newegg
  28. thanks guys i realy appreciate your time im going to get the haf 932 case it will pay for the sickle flow fans and some of my ram how is my power supply
  29. that's a top notch psu but there are plenty others just as reliable and cheaper in fact the xfx is built by seasonic lol i wouldn't recommend any other than these two because none of the rest compare to your current pick http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207016 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010#top
