  2. You need to do a post in the watercooling section about the watercooling stuff mate and the 480 is a beast when water cooled your friend doesn't know what hes talking about lol

  4. Thanks bigcyco1! I'll get the Gigabyte mobo instead [edited]. Also, I'll open a new thread in the water cooling section to get that sorted out. Thank you for being patient with a newcomer like me :)
  5. No problem
  6. I never heard of that case before it does look nice though i hope the guys in watercooling can help you with if it will work i use these cases when i do watercooling builds but they are kinda allot over $150.00 bucks lol but i find they work easy without having to mod the case which i like because that can be a pain in the you know what lol.

  8. As someone with a GTX 480, buy it! It's a great card but runs really really hot - you're going to want to put some VRM heatsinks on the ram if you choose to get a universal gpu cooler. Personally, I would opt for a full watercooling block as it really does need it. Having said that, I'm running a 480 with a aio watercooler on and vrm heatsinks and its just fine - for overclocking, get a full water block.

    Don't skimp on your case - getting a generic one might turn out to be a complete waste of money.

    Hope this helps.

    As for the motherboard, it depends on what you want to do with your hardware. If you want to overlock the hell out of everything, you might want to consider getting a motherboard capable of handling the overlock.

    You don't need more than 620W - the cpu doesn't draw that much power and neither does the gpu. I'm running a similar set up on a 550W psu and it works without a hitch.
  9. I've decided to upgrade to the NZXT SWITCH 810 case. Thanks forum (especially bigcyco1) , you have answered all of my questions and once I get everything cleared up in water cooling, I'll make a purchase. Thanks again everyone! :)
  10. Your very welcome!
