How does this look? - Page 2

A 92 mm fan has to spin faster to move as much air as a 120mm, so for the same cooling power the TX3 should be louder than the Hyper212.

The build looks good, but if money is really tight have you thought of reusing parts from your current machine (psu, hdd, etc?) and then upgrading those parts later?

Only thing I could salvage from this thing is the Optical Drives, maybe hard drive but it's only 320GB so might as well get a new one.

Also, why do you need a aftermarket heatsink? Contrary to what people will have you believe, the stock cooler is pretty decent and will keep you at or below 60c during gaming...and you won't be bottlenecking your GPU any time soon, so no need to OC. I'd say skip the cooler and get a better case with more expandiblity. I don't think that Raidmax will fit a Hyper 212 plus+, and either way I wouldn't get a Raidmax. I would recommend this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Tpk=haf%20912
I don't know about that vid card, it doesn't have any reviews, and mine will be restocked probably by November anyway. The other Gigabyte card on there has bad reviews. I wanna overclock is why i wanna get an aftermarket heatsink, I wanna OC to 4.2 - 4.5 Ghz

And about the case, I like the one i picked, I'll keep looking for another one that appeals to me but as of now I wanna keep it. What about this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103084

the 500W MK II Silencer is a wonderful PSU in it's wattage and price class. I used it in a machine I put together for my sister purely on a rugged reliability standpoint combined with the fact that at the time, it was available in a great combo special and discounted price that made it an economical choice as well. According to 3rd party testing, it is one of the best 500W rated PSUs money can buy.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the 500W MK II PSU for the vast majority of builds, however; if there is likely to be SLI or CFX involved with higher end cards, I think it would be smart to invest in a PSU that has 4x6(+2?) pin connections as standard, in order to ensure that you have a nice solid link to all of your GPU power connections. While I'm pretty confident that the 500W MK II would handle almost any dual card configuration imaginable, but in many of those cases, it would be operating above label ratings and really pushing the limits. I think it's smart to have some planned overhead in PSU size. The 560Ti is rated 170W TDP. When you factor in SLIing a pair and the consumption of an OCed CPU, I could see total system power requirements exceeding 500W.

The 750W MK II would be a good choice as it would offer you tons of overhead, great efficiency, and enough 6-pin plugs to properly connect a pair of GPUs without the need of molex adapters. With the 10% promo on newegg right now, it's about $100. Not bad.

Alternatives would be the Corsair Enthusiast 750W, currently on promo at newegg for about $95, or the Corsair Professional 650W for about $120.

I would avoid the Gigabyte card, as mentioned previously. I just upgraded my system (and it's in the mail) and I did a lot of reading and researching to see if I could get away with the $219 Gigabyte card. Unfortunately the only reviews I could find were for the SOC 560 Ti, so there was no ground to stand on. Of those reviews, it did fairly poorly and was very loud. So, don't buy it.

I DO have a PNY 260 GTX in my system right now and she's a real beaut, overclocked 25% for me without breaking a sweat on stock cooling. Really impressive, had I seen that I would have bought that instead of the EVGA one. Not that I don't dislike EVGA, but my experience with PNY so far has been stellar.
