Pretty much got this build figured out, here are the specs:
Asus Maximus V gene
256gb samsung 830 series
(thinking about buying a 3tb harddisk) don't know which are good anymore, how are the seagates?
Corsair AX 750, I know it's overkill, but atm it was cheaper than the 650,
Fractal Design Arc Mini, overall I'm very pleased with the case.
Corsair 8gb 1600mhz LP vengeance, I wanted the Samsung Extreme Low Voltage rams, but the don't sell them in norway sadly...
Asus gtx 670 dcII 4gb, hoping to get a golden sample *crosses fingers* btw, if you're wondering why I chose the 4gb, it's because I'd like to SLI someday, and it too was cheap atm.
I can't buy 2 right now, because I'm studying and need some cash for food, haha.
Corsair H100, changing the fans on this, so far I've considered AP 15's and 14's, the cougars(but sadly they don't stock them in Norway, which sucks!) and the Noctua NF-F12 PWM(even though I want an all black/red theme going on)
I'll also be buying some additional fans for the case, I think.
- What would be the best radiator fans that aren't too loud? (I'm coming from the reference 5870 and I find that thing waaay too loud!)
- What would be the best fan configuration? Atm I've set the stock 140mm from the top to the side, one upfront, and one on the back. Which fans would be a great addition, or should I exchange them all?
- Is it easy to paint fans? What would I use?
- What are some good keyboards and switches for my usage (40% typing, 40% gaming, 20% programming) I've tried my friend's das keyboard with blues ( I really enjoyed the click, clack of it all, but I've heard they aren't as good for gaming, which puts me off blues) I've also tried my girlfriends noppoo with browns, I like it a lot because of the tactile feeback and that it has full nkro over usb, don't think I'll be needin the full NKRO thugh, I'm not that into RTS games, I guess 6KRO suits me fine...(the maximus doesn't have a PS2 connector:mad: )
I've also tried a filco red switch and a steelseries 7g with blacks, not sure I like the linear switches. If I were to go for a linear style, I'd probably go for the CM Storm quickfire rapid, they only sell it with blacks and reds here. If I was getting one of the others, I'd either be buying my friends das keyboard or buy a filco since they seem like great keyboards.
...I think that covers it..
PS, I've already bought everything I need, except the fans and the keyboard.
