Hello all, it has been a while since I last built a Pc, so i'm just seeing if anyone on here can give me the 'ok' for the build in terms of compatability etc. I plan on doing alot of gaming, maxed out obviously and on 2 monitors. So will this work;
Gigabyte SKT-1155 Z77X-UD3H Wifi Motherboard (GA-Z77X-UD3H-WB-G)
Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3
120GB OCZ Vertex 3 2.5" Solid State Drive
Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB 3.5 inch Hard Drive
Aerocool Strike-X 1100W '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Overclocked 4GB Graphics Card GV-N680OC-4GD
My case will be a CM Storm Scout II Midi Tower Gaming Case so i'm wondering if one of the bays will have to be removed for the GPU (I plan on going to a few LAN party), and the other essential stuff needed for the build etc.
I'll also probably be overclocking to around 4.5Ghz-ish, will this be ok for air-cooling or should I be looking at water-cooling?
If you are planning to overclock to 4.5ghz you'll need something better than the stock CPU cooler. I'd suggest using the Thermaltake Water Extreme 2.0: and adding 2 more fans for a push/pull configuration.
