More about components compatible
  1. ok they are all compatible , but i have some questions to ask

    - what is the usage of this pc ?
    - about the gpu's the gtx 670 is best choice.
    - overkill psu , unless if you gonna sli !
    - the agility 4 is not the best choice out there ( samsung 830 , vertex 4 ) will destroy it.
  2. I wouldn't get the Sabertooth. They just put a fancy piece of metal on it to sell it for more money.

    I would go for the 7950.

    Do you plan to SLI/ Crossfire in the future?

    Also, is this for gaming?

    This computer will mainly be for gaming and streaming content from my pc. I do hope and plan on doing sli/crossfire depending on what happens on the future. I have all the fan slots filled with 120mm fans besides the top which is with 200mm.

    -Deemo13 - besides the sabertooth what mobo would you recommend?

    -mrdowntownkiller - are reference cards worth the buy now a days with all the other manufacturers out there?
  4. I would get a GPU from a manufacturer that has good cooling solutions.

    this was actually the initial mobo that I was going to get but I was hessitant with all the issues with DOA and other issues
  6. The only reason you hear of so many cases of DOA is that the only people that review things are people that have something to say about them.

    Most of those are DOA cases.

    But the majority of people who buy this thing and have no problems do not generally leave reviews.
  7. Best answer
    i think this is a good build for your needs.

    I am really interested in the mobo and the gpu. I do have some questions regarding fans and how to configure them as well as fan controllers so that I can have control of them
  11. ask ?

    ask ?


    I'm looking for at least a fan controller with 4 channels and am wondering which fans should be the intake an exhaust fan
  13. ok the two infront fans are intake and same for the 2 at the side , 1 rear exhaust fan also the top will be an exhaust fan , and if you are installing a fan at the bottom it will be intake fan. do you get it ?
  14. Yup. I get it. Is there a way to control how fast the fans rotate if try are plugged into the motherboard? Or would I need a fan controller for the other 4 fans?
  15. Best answer selected by Stevenk92.
  16. it depends , if the fan is locked at a certain rpm you cant change it's speed , if the fans have 2 or 3 speeds you can toggle between them.
  17. The 4 fans that came with the case is going to be connected to the cases fan controller. The 4 fans I bought are pwm fans 2 on bottom and 2 on the side
