That's weird your fan broke. Noctua comes with a 6 year warranty, you should get another one for free. Noctua's customer service is great.

Get the K version of your processor, going for a Z97 motherboard is pointless if can't OC.

edit: don't get mad because people are not answering your questions, we are not customer support. If you had taken 5 minutes reading the OP and looking at pics, you could have answered these questions by yourself.


You clearly missed my questions and my budget, I wasn't asking you though as from what I can tell on this thread you see to be the resident bully. I just picked a board because I don't know the difference, won't be OCing the CPU so I asked for suggestions to save money.

Bully? I'm not sure we're reading the same thread here...

Anyway, to save money, go for a i5 4460 or 4590, if it's a gaming build you probably won't notice the difference. If you're not overclocking there's no need for a Z87/97 board, have a look at B85/H97 boards to see which one suits your demands, you can save quite a bit if there's no need for WiFi.

For the GPU, make sure you get one with a semi-passive cooling design, that way it'll be nice and quiet when you're not gaming. For SSD, Crucial MX/BX100 may be a cheaper although I don't know if that's the case in the USA also, if your motherboard supports M2 or mSATA SSDs, consider getting one of those to reduce cable clutter..

You could also consider getting a 250gb SSD with a 1tb WD Green, the Green serie is generally cheaper and quieter.

Ok thank you. I only really play battlefield series for games but I like playing maxed. Some photo editing, no batch work but the rest is browsing and video playback.

This will be on my TV stand so WI-Fi would be nice.

I'm too new to know the difference between semi passive gpu and not.

I like the black hdd, had one fail on me but the longer warranty took care of it..ideally I'd just like two ssds smile.gif

Definitely consider going for a 4460 or 4590 then, for the motherboard have a look at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157526 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128735

When going for the Phoenix board you could consider going for a SSD like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148951 but make sure to read some reviews before buying.

Good thing you don't even have to try. whistle.gif

@Zjozz
Is the clicking of the fan present only during low speeds or voltages?
How loud is the clicking?

It gets louder as the fan speeds up, it's not a faint ticking either, it's clearly audible.

Can't quite reproduce the problem, tried it with extension, splitter, LNA etc, it seems to be kinda random. When I tried it this morning it seemed to have fixed itself but after a couple minutes it started again..

I contacted the shop, should be able to get it replaced tomorrow, they've never failed me before so let's hope they don't start now.
