Not feeling like putting up the rest of the parts but it's all good. Just recommend me the best radiator 120mm fans(that are available at newegg), a 590 cooler if there is one(please tell me if there's going to be one soon) and any cables I might be missing?

Yup, that's it. Please comment.

Well, I recommend putting up the rest of the parts. For the Hd, an F3 or WD black is good. I would also put more info on the vid card as well so you can get quality opinions. I mean, honestly, if you want help but you're too lazy to make a complete post...

For Fans, I kinda like the

Scythe Slipstream 1600Rpm
Zalman F3 FDB
Silverstone FN121

All of them are decent... Depends on what kind of noise ratio you want. Those are kinda all in the midrange, noise and rpm wise.

The velociraptors aren't really worth it. They're loud, and they're not really that fast. You'd be better buying some cheap 500GB drives (Samsung F3s?) and putting them in a RAID0 Array. You get a fast, cheap 1TB drive that's not as loud as a 10K-RPM one.

EDIT: Not to mention that the VelociRaptors are WAY overpriced.

With the Vulcan and the 920 you are only going to have room for up to 3 hard drives (2 in the 3.5 bay and 1 in the 5.25 bay assuming you have an adapter).

I'd suggest a small SSD (I just picked up a Kingston 64GB for $80) as your primary and grab a 2 or 3 TB western digital (speed of drive does not matter) for storage.


For power supply, 850w would be more than sufficient, the Corsair TX series for example.

The fans that come with the Kuhler are pretty good (loud at max RPM though) but you can control them via the antec software.

I'm not a big fan of dual gpu core video cards, they tend to be a bit fussy, what resolution are you running at? A single GTX580 would likely more than enough.
