So I didn't have enough money to make a big order twice. So I'll have to wait a couple of days until the money gets wired back to my account... SUCKS
You better not put videos and pictures on the SSD, that'd be a total waste. If you don't want to lose data like that then put it on a RAID1 setup so that when one drive fails you still have the other mirror.
So sexy it Hz

Pics and vids are not the intention of the SSD =P
But thanks

and to power it all:
*Corsair HX 850 80 plus silver modular PSU.
That case looks slick lol.

I have to reiterate what others have said, that PSU is too much for the system.

And then I have to say that that RAM could just be better. Not a hell of a lot better but a fair bit. something like: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231431

or anything from these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9&Pagesize=100

would be faster than your ram.

http://www.corsair.com/cooling/hydro...pu-cooler.html According to the specs there it is approx 120 mm high and your case supports upto 180mm so your good for the cooler.
Yay

Okay.. should I turn it down to a 750W ? or even lower ?
I will be overclocking my CPU to about 4.3ghz and I want some room for more harddrives and a possible OC on the GPU's.

But since I live in DK, that RAM is about twice the price of the Corsair... And my budget is already pushed beyond the limit. Do you know of any RAM in the same price range of the corsair which perform better than them ?

Correct me if I am wrong, but all that ram you are showing is 1.65 volts, isn't 1.5 volt needed for his motherboard?

No SB works fine with 1.65v.

You could easily run with a 650W PSU, just as long as its good quality. Take a look here and pick one in the 650W range. I'd recommend the TX650W V2 and the Antec True Power New 650W.

The H80 will fit, the rear fan supports 140 and 120mm fans.

I'd just stick with the ram you picked, wouldn't say its worth spending a lot more for a tiny boost in performance.

Thanks For letting me know on the PSU I went for the HX650 actually. I wanted a semi-modular PSU.
And also ordering a Crucial m4.
I also found a build that has the XL and an H80. So I am no longer in doubt!

Allright! Just recieved my case, and IT IS HUGE!
The case is huge, the space is huge, and the fans are huge!
Can't wait to get started with this build.
Yes... I can't start yet...

Why ? You might ask.. well... Some of my other parts (sent via normal mail system and not a private courior company) ended up on the other side of the country... So more good luck for me! Going to have to wait until monday to get the other order.. oh well.. Gotta get the patience out of my closet!


sry for the big pics.... freakin' iPhone

It is a really nice case, so glad I bought my one.

I'd recommend taking the top hard drive cage out completely and just using the bottom ones near the PSU. Gives a bit better airflow through the case that way.

Nice =) Good that you are happy with it ^^
Thanks, I have already decided to do so =) Don't need 10 HDD spaces just yet =P Think I'll manage with 6 for now...

I also got the money wired back to my account, so I ordered up some more parts just now.
Only missing SSD and GPU in hardware, and OS and Anti-Virus in software.
and then I am ready to go!
