Ok, couple questions for the more experienced overclockers.

At stock specs I am thinking my 550 watt antec is ok, But if I am able to overclock at all I am going up to 570 watts. this is calculated on http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine...


The HP xw6400 has a 700 watt PSU. (that's where the MoBo came from)

Anyone care to weigh in on that?


Also total cost of this build is 655 dollars right now. Not bad for something that started with a 20 dollar processor on ebay.

Thanks, means alot to me, more good things to come.

I ordered 6 fans for the build.

2 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103098 COOLER MASTER Turbine Master
and 1 of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103052 COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Case Fan 4 Pack.

All non-Led Fans to blend more in with the retro/Steampunk feel.

Cheers, Alder

Also got a fan controller and Card reader/Front Audio on its way. Both 5.25 inch. So 3 out of 5 slots filled... I might be getting a 3 in 2 HDD rack for the last 2 slots...

Here is a few shots of the fans..
