Best 120mm fans are scythe AP-15's Theyre quiet as anything and push/pull a LOT of air...less your looking for style over performance for a matching theme

Gonna warn you though the ap-15's are usually hard to come by as they sellout crazy fast I think frozencpu still has some left. They ordered 3000 fans prolly have around 300 left

Update: They have 185 left

SSD performance for games is seen in games like GTAIV, RAGE, Crysis, World Of Warcraft....games with a HUGE map loadout

Battlefield 3 in comparison doesn't really have that big of maps to warrant that type of performance, but then again if your buying a ssd for games you know that you need it.

Perfect example: When I used to play WoW everyone would take forever loading into raids, and I would be waiting for them to pull the boss and have had applied all of my power ups for the boss before half of the raid even arrived

Intel I7 2600k 3.4 GHz processor
ASUS Maximus Extreme Z-Motherboard (8x/16x/16x tri-SLI support)
8GB DDR3 RAM (Cosair) (2x4)
Nvidia GTX 590 GPU
1TB HDD (Seagate)
M4 128 GB SSD
Cosair AX 1200W (1200w)
CM HAF-X 942 Casing

For the casing fan, is the CM 120,140 or 200mm fan better?


---
Lol you seem pretty adamant about the Maximus-Z. Wheres the CPU cooler, dont tell me you are planning to go without one? You cant get the D14, as the Corsair RAM are too tall. Get a H80 if you wanna go closed loop. Rasa kits are more troublesome, but provides more performance. If you wanna go aircooling, get a Noctua U12. I wouldnt get a 212plus with the other components, it will feel out of place and kill itself

Casing fan? I got a top 200mm to go with the 200mm side and 230mm front and 120mm rear. I got a CM Turbine Master 1.8 (get high CFM fans) and attached it to the HDD cage with zipties, to provide more air flow onto the GPU. swap out the rear 120mm as it can be quite noisy. you can even attach another 120mm fan on the unused 5.25 inch bays. Good things about HAF-X - a million ways to go about improving airflow.

Apart from the overkill mobo and lack of CPU cooler, you are all set to go.

All right, thanks sloppyjoe 123. I'll just add a Noctua U12 to the list then
post #25 of 28
To answer you ! you're cheaper and best with an i7 26[7]00k. I am very pleased of my GTX590. I pull average of 80+ fps in battlefield 3 ultra 4xAA 16xAF , HBAO and everything on. I plan on getting a second gtx590 and go surround 3d. Overclocking your 590 to around 725 - 730 wich is kind of a sweet spot of the card and will net you around 20% more performance and the voltage will be 0.925 - 0.950 wich is stock voltage on the ASUS cards i think or EVGA. Also if you search around the forums
QUAD SLI 590 beat a tri sli 580 and are 80% of a QUAD Sli 580. But they are also cheaper. At least in my country they are. 580 is 850$ and 590 was 1000$ so was a no brainer. But in any country you live in , 2x590 are cheaper then 4x580 and do perform 80% of the 580s.

CPU cooling i would suggest a Corsair H80/100 or Silver Arrow. if you like noctua go Nh14. On my corsair h100 i go to 68degrees Celsius at 5.1 ghz so i am very satisfied by it considering it's pretty cheap.

Your build looks decent, but get a GTX 580 3GB it will be plenty unless you are going bigger than 1080p. You should also wait for SB-E and Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Prices will drop and you will get better deals. i7-3930K should be good for a VERY long time, it is supposed to be released on Nov 14th.

Hmm..so Ironman according to you I should wait for the SB-E processors? But wouldn't that mean I have to change my entire mobo?are the SB-E processors really worth the wait?

Just out of curiosity, the current Extreme Z mobo I'm choosing will run 3 GPU's at x8/x16/x16..is there any mobo that will run 3 GPUs at x16/x16/x16/? or even 4 GPUs x16/x16/x16/x16 for that matter?
