PC parts finalise

Hey, I've made many threads about building a computer because I need lots of help but this is the final version and I was wondering if it is all compatible, Good and if I've accounted for everything.
I'm Australian so I linked all the parts to good prices I've found so dont worry about the links or price.

More about parts finalise
  1. Also would I be better off with 1x GTX 690? I can get it for the exact same price as 2 670's so was just wondering which is better.
  2. looks OK to me, though I'd suggest an air cooler over the H70

    Ok cool, Any preferences? Or a different liquid system? (They cost around the same here so don't worry about pricing ect)
  4. Coolermaster's Hyper 212 EVO is usually good for any stable overclock (4.0 to 4.6 GHz)

    Apparently they are pretty hard to set up from what I just watched, Do you recommend it because of its price/performance and disprove the H70 because of its price or performance? Also I was looking forward to the idea of having liquid cooling :3 (First build you see, You know how it is)
  6. Mostly I dislike liquid cooling. what happens if it leaks all over your motherboard or GPU.

    the H70 is no better than air cooling of the same price.

    F**k that, Air for me plz. Ill go with the Cooler master's Hyper 212 EVO, I thought H70 was one unit that doesn't leak though?
  8. Go with Antec 920 for a 120mm size water cooler as it performs about the same as a Corsair H100 that requires a 2X120 space.

    I have the H100 and it works great !!
    It is a completely sealed system and does not leak.
    I have a friend that has a Cool-it systems cooler and has had it for nearly 3 years and has never had a problem with it.

    FWIW

    jer :)
  9. It shouldn't leak, but who knows?

    In the H70 price range you can buy something better than CM 212 EVO. Have a look at:
    Zalman CNPS12X
    Thermalright Silver Arrow
    Thermalright True Spirit 140

  11. actually reviews say the zalman isnt very good, might just go with EVO
  12. check www.frostytech.com

    regularly hot-box tests coolers

    I have no idea what I'm looking at here, Whats the best CPU cooler for 90$ or less? (I say 90 because something that costs 90 in US usually costs 110 in AU
  14. frostytech onlky lists prices as of retail release. what you can do is look at their top 10, or look up a specific cooler to see how it fared in Frosty's tests
  15. Best answer
    If you're gonna utilize a CPU cooler, I suggest drop the Ripjaws series.
    G.Skill Sniper 16gb (4x4gb) - lower voltage than anything out there(i think) and fairly smaller than Ripjaws.
    G.Skill Ares 16gb (4x4gb) - low profile, smallest of all G.skill RAMs.

    On another note, do you really need that much RAM?

    Also, best air cooler imo under $90 is the Noctua NH-D14.
    And look, it's only $85 on that site you shop from. Odd, since it's $89.99 on Newegg.

    I really want the 2x8 because (I know it probably won't for ages) when 10-20 GB becomes the normal as things start getting more demanding I want the space to chuck 2 more in there. And The noctua sounds good Ill get that, The pricing is weird as though. Thats a first but then again 85 AUD = 89 USD
  17. I've just been looking up and the H70 apparently being a closed system never leaks, and performs as good as the most high end CPU air fans
  18. Ohh, alright then. Sadly, this is the best I could find from G.skill:

    G.Skill Ares 16gb (2x8gb)

    G.Skill Sniper 16gb (1x16gb)

    You can try looking at some Corsair or Kingston. I'm not familiar with them, sorry.
