Now that you mention it It didn't so I guess I'll have to contact the manufacturer.

Nice window mod, I like how the cut shows where the Silverstone logo has been pressed into the metal where the PSU sits. Was thinking of doing something similar myself!

Just two comments from me:

1. Your RAM is not ideal. you want a dual channel kit for a Z77 chipset (which is what your motherboard and CPU are compatible with). Basically either buy the 2x4Gb kit or the 4x4Gb kit. the 3x4Gb is a triple channel for the old school X58 chipset which i'm not even sure you can still purchase... short version: just choose 8Gb or 16Gb RAM.

2. This is just a personal gripe of mine, but i would get a different power supply. Some may call me overboard and over-the-top, but i place a heavy importance on quality PSUs. The PSU in my system is a Seasonic X-Series which is fantastic. Gold rated, better stability on rails under load, ultra quiet etc. however you do pay a premium for it. Your PSU will handle your system fine, i just like to spend more on a PSU that's all.

let me know if you have any other questions!

ok that should be all good now,
btw you think i should wait for the 8000 series of gpus coming out later this year i hear they should be released around third quarterof this year
thanks biggrin.gif
post #4027 of 7172
Nah don't wait. There's always something better around the corner. Just pull the trigger. It's a minimum and not guaranteed 6 month wait. If it was 2 weeks I would advise differently.

Whether you wait or not entirely depends on you, really. Q3 is still a ways away, and if this is a computer you're going to get good mileage out of in the coming months, why wait? Get active on the forums and sell your 7970 on the marketplace (to me) once the 8000s come out biggrin.gif

Also, I believe the general consensus is that the 3770s are overkill for gaming. So, and again this depends on what you'll be using the computer for, you could pretty easily save some money and get a 3570k, especially since you're going to overclock (I assume, what with the K series processor and water loop). If it were me, I'd save the hundred and some odd dollars, go with a 3570, and drop a bit more cash on a gold certified PSU. I don't think you're gonna wake up one day, sweating and exhausted because you had another nightmare about your processor's impact on your MLG ranking.
