So planning to do an upgrade in a couple of days, looking at replacing CPU, Mobo, and Cooler.

Current Specs -

- i3-540, stock cooler
- Gigabyte ud2h level mobo
- 8gb Corsair Vengence Memory
- MSI 7950 Twin Frozer III
- Corsair 500d case
- BeQuiet! 550w pro
- OCZ Agility 3 120Gb SSD + 320gb Storage hard drive

Planned Upgrades

-i5-3570k
-Corsair H100i
-Asrock ASRock Z77 Extreme4 OR Gigabyte Z77X-D3H

Got a couple of questions -

1) Which motherboard would be better?
2) Do I need to also upgrade my PSU
3) Is there anything better that I should be aware of/am I making the wrong decisions?


Thank-you!

Tom :)

Take the asrock extreme 4

Instead of h100I take noctua d14, great cooler same ability as h100 and cheaper by quite a bit.

Psu should be enough

Not interested in the NH-D14, way too big and ugly
