CPU - Intel Haswell Core i5 4670K 3.40GHz 6MB LGA1150 W/$15.00 Ghost Recon Online Upgrade
Motherboard - ASUS Z87M-Plus Intel Z87 ATX Haswell LGA1150 Motherboard
RAM - Mushkin Blackline FrostByte 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600 CL9 (996995)
Graphics - undecided
SSD - Samsung 840 EVO Series 250GB SATA3 SSD (MZ-7TE250BW)
Power Supply - Seasonic G Series 650W 80Plus Gold Power Supply (SSR-650RM)
Case - SilverStone TJ08B-E Evolution Micro-ATX Tower (USB3.0)
Heatsink - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler w/Dual NF-P12 Silent Fans
Optical Drive - ASUS DRW-24D3ST Green DVD Writer SATA
Sound Card - ASUS Xonar DGX Gaming PCI-E Sound Card
Storage - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 64MB Cache SATA3

I am not sure about graphics cards. It looked like either:
EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX770 Superclocked ACX Cooler 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E3.0 (02G-P4-2774-KR)
or
ASUS AMD Radeon R9280X-DC2T-3GD5-V2 R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E3.0

Both were in my price range and look about the same, but I'm leaning towards the 770 for less noise/heat.

Will the muskin blackline ram give enough clearance for the noctua heatsink?

Can you think of anything else I missed?

Um, MicroATX case (you listed a ATX motherboard)...unless you want to do some major modifications to the case.

Go to Noctua's website they give every possible dimension you could ever need, and newegg gives dimensions of the ram.

The graphics card is up to you, I would go 290x or 780ti the 770 is a good card too, but I like 3 monitor surround smile.gif

the onboard sound is usually good enough, why limit your SLI? (half deaf kid here, sound is just noise to me) try it, if you does not meet what you want, throw that sound card in.

if your motherboard supports more ram, you can get 2x8 and give you time to upgrade later. I use a lot of ram for VM's and servers. so I have 32gb in mine. use all but 8gb of it which is great for everything else.

I think, they will fit. Mushkin RAM modules with the Frostbyte heatsink are 38 mm tall. I am not sure how much above the motherboard the top of heatsink will be, when they are in the RAM socket. On the Noctua website I found this image on the FAQ page for the NH-U12P SE2 which shows there is 40 mm of clearance under the fins. The stack of fins is 158 mm so having a 120 mm fan on the front should not extend below the fins.

http://promos.asus.com/us/z87/comparison/ According to that site it's an matx board. I could potentially upgrade to the Maximux Gene, but I don't think I'll be using SLI or the onboard audio, and so I'm not sure I need that much board otherwise.

However if there's some other feature of the Maximus that the M Plus can't do then maybe I should get it anyway... I don't know enough about boards to know what to look for (but it's almost twice the cost).

Thanks on the RAM. It looks like it will fit with no issues.

The RAM is going to be tight. It's 38 mm tall. but will be a bit higher when inserted into the sockets. The HS has only 40 mm of clearance for the RAM. If you only have 2 modules, perhaps you'll have to use the RAM slots #2 and #4 that are farther from the CPU socket (than #1 and #3).

Apart from not having "heatsinks", would it be better to get this instead then: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226401

I don't even know if ram actually needs them anyway.

I don't think it's vital to have huge heatsinks on RAM unless you want to do crazy overclocks. I use the LP (low profile) corsair vengeance RAM which looks similar to those Mushkins and I don't have any issues.

^^ this.

I'm using Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP 1.35V, it's very low-profile (no issues with huge Noctua HS) with great overclock.
Running stable at 2133 MHz (10/9/10/24/1T) @ 1.5V and it's barely warm.

Hey guys, Im looking to replace the front 180mm AP fan. Is it true that there are mounting holes for a 140mm fan ? I can't find any 180mm fans for sale in my country.
post #5239 of 7172
Phobya G-silent 18 (180mm), max speed between 600-700RPM, they are very quiet.

+1 one of the first things I did with mine.

I don't believe there are holes for a 140mm fan up front but I could be wrong. Don't think you'd want to put a fan that small up front anyway.
