First Time Build and Water Cooling Setup

Ok everyone I decided I wanted to finally build a computer and water cooling build so this is the list I have put together:

First things first I'm fully aware that 500 gb is not a large amount of space What I plan on doing is adding another 2 500 ssd's later and put it into a raid 0 configuration. Considering this should I put my operating system on a small 32gb ssd in case of a drive failure or if I have my data backed up is it a big deal?

As for my using the bitspower crystal links I'm trying to do something similar to what I have seen in the singularity computer series on youtube:

So anyone who has any suggestions I would welcome them. Or you can comment just to tell me what you think.

Another question since this is primarily a gaming computer considering games only use four cores at the max should I consider using a fx4350 or 6350 instead? If so can anyone tell me the max vcores for either processor or where I can find the info because I cant find it on AMD's website.

  1. What is your budget
  2. When I did all the parts for the rig on partpicker it came out to about 2500.00 I'm thinking 2750.00 max I didnt plan on getting both setups at the same time I figured I would get the rig first and go from there.

    X79 Thanks for the guide I have already watched I found it informative.
  5. No problem bro.
  6. No problem bro.
  7. What is the purpose of your build? Just that is a very strange mix of parts, to me its quite unbalanced and lacking any real direction. I suggest creating a thread in the systems forum with this template filled out. From there you will get help making a build that will suit your purpose.

    Don't include the water-cooling info, just say that your going with custom water and leave it at that.

    That NCIX guide is good for seeing how its all done, but doesn't cover much theory.
    I suggest you read the water-cooling sticky, it will give you enough info to start deciding on parts.

    Primarily its a gaming system and the reason I have all the watercooling parts is to do a loop strong enough to handle future upgrades thats why I went with a dual MC655 pumps they are supposed to be the strongest on the market
