Quick question! And thanks for helping everybody. PC parts are here and put together!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Overclocked to 4.5 with 36-40 idle it seems.. Whats too hot for games? I noticed I'm hitting 56-59c... is that okay?

Runs like a champ on BF3 with every thing as high as possible! I'd consider that a success.. my only complaint was the cables that came with the power supply... they were too short to route using the cable management system. It still looks tidy thanks to a friend that helped.. but it could have looked even better if I was able to route all of them.

Here's the build with last minute changes..

1) Corsair Carbide Series 500R White Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

2) Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

3) ASRock Z68 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4) Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

5) Two Crossfired SAPPHIRE 100312-3SR Radeon HD 6950 Dirt3 Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16

6) Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

7) Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F90GB3-BK 2.5" 90GB SATA III SSD

8) CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active

9) G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

10) LG CD/DVD Burner Black SATA Model GH22NS70 OEM - OEM

temps seem fine, you can buy some cable extenders if you want to use your case's cable management system

That's how the cables are with my PSU as well. I was able to use the cable management pretty well with my 400r other than the secondary MB one which was too short and had to go through the case.

I have a TX750 which is semi-modular.
