Need ~$800 "future-proof" gaming rig - Page 4

post #31 of 52

A 4+1 phase board with a hexa is not actually a bad thing as long as you have a quality unit with a cooled VRM system - check and check on the Extreme3.


Tarun I hate to break it to you but while I like your build, it just doesn't work.  That heatsink is unavailable completely; secondly, a blu-ray drive (listed as a requirement in this PC) is also not present.
