I figured I'd just give It a couple months or so before I did that. I just wanted not to have to re buy a psu, or motherboard, when I did upgrade later. I wanted to start out with the best, that way I can just add, without having to replace. IDK maybe thats stupid. :\
I'm checking out the "3820 cpu" right now. I really like that the motherboard already has the watercooling blocks built in
That only comes on 1155.
Maybe you'll know. If I told you I want the best cooling possible and nothing less. Could you tell me, this pump, this triple 120mm radiator, and these quadrupedal 120mm radiators, with these fans, this reservoir, etc... And nothing else will give you better performance, because this is the best.. All I want is to buy the best. I have an 120mm exhaust next to the motherboard, 120mm exhaust next to the two psu cutouts, 2 triple 120mm slots in the front (capable of housing 2 triple 120mm radiators with 15mm spacing), and 12 120mm cutouts on the top (capable of housing 3 120mm quadruple radiators with 15mm spacing). And there are no space constraints with the radiators (I can use literally any size radiator, I made sure when I customized it)
Thanks for all your help
It is not easy to say what components are the BEST, there are so many good ones that trade blows with eachother. Regarding waterblocks we will have to know what CPU and GPU's your going to be using as not all waterblocks are compatible with every one of them. For radiators I prefer coolgate, but there are many other great radiators that are equaly as good or even better(black ice, and alphacool nexxos for instance). Fans I will say again, high speed Gentle Typhoon's or high speed Yate Loon's(3000RPM or more, its going to sound like Berlin during the last days of battle in 1945 though) Pumps is either MCP655 or DDC 35X. They are both reliable high performance pumps, but the DDC35X runs hotter, while delivering more flow and pressure, than the MCP655.
One thing that i find worrying is that you dont seem to know a lot about PC's, components or even brand names at all. Just make shure you ask before you actualy purchase something or you might end up wasting a lot of money on a project like this.
I'll do my best to help you.
