Is all this stuff compatible? [New Rig] - Page 3

And lastly, is the PSU quality high enough for a ~4.5 Ghz overclock?

and whats the difference between the CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 and the CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 RAM?

Yeah the PSU is enough, but if you plan on going SLI in the future u might want to get a higher one.

The difference between the 2 is the timings the first is 8-8-8-24 while the second is 9-9-9-24, that's why the 1st is more expensive.
Lower timings = Better.

My biggest concern would be whether or not the CPU cooler is going to actually clear the RAM heat-sinks. Vengeance sets with the "tall" heat-sinks are known to cause physical limitations on CPU heat-sink selection. I would suggest picking a set with more modest heat spreaders, or just pick a set like the Samsung low voltage stuff, which doesn't need heat spreaders to run at respectable speeds. Alternatively, there are several other low voltage (1.35V) kits that are priced similarly or lower, that will typically run as fast, with less heat, than 1.5V and higher kits. The "low voltage" chips are sort of like the "OCers magic trick memory" option. "Overvolting" them to 1.5V (the standard), will typically result in the ability to hit clocks and timings that most 1.5V kits around the same price will never hit anyway.

Secondly, if you choose a Rifle style cooler for the CPU, the air-flow across the VRMs is reduced significantly. There is something to be said for how well these cooler configurations work for cooling the CPU, as they do typically produce the best OCing results off the bat, however, if it were me, I would settle for a lower clock and pick a down blowing cooler. Granted, the cooling performance for the CPU is not typically as good, but, at least I would know that my motherboard VRMs are getting some proper air flow and cooling as well.

Regards,
Eric.

i used the 212+ cooler for a while and i have this ram. it fit under the cooler and they are good ram. heres a link if you want to check them out.

the Mobo and the CPU have to be the same Socket.. i got a Gigabyte z77 UD5 $245 and an i5370 3.4 for $229.. that is probably the best for lga 1155. a UD4 is about $208 on sale now.

i dont know much about ram.. i just go to Newegg and go thru the Mobo's reviews that i have and read the reviews.. a lot of them that overclock have their ram listed.. then i go to that ram and read their reviews, then to the mobo's .com and see if they have recomdations.. often they don't have anything that can be overclocked, to protect themselves from liability.

Crud.... I was looking at some cases but i need a little help.
I can't tell the difference between the CoolerMaster HAF 922 RC-922M-KWNI and the CoolerMaster HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN3-GP frown.gif
