The new Cooler Master Silent Pro M 850 W is a good power supply, presenting a high efficiency up to 86.8% if you pull up to 80% from the labeled capacity (i.e., up to 680 W), voltages within specs and noise and ripple below the maximum allowed.

How much A on the 12v rail would I be looking for with the sugested pc build (post #1)?

Edit: Would a Corsair 850W TX850M Enthusiast Series Modular PSU or Seasonic 850W M12II Bronze Modular PSU be a better option?

I love seeing such low temps, as there it leaves me with a lot of room to push it further in the future should I choose to. The ram should fit fine.
Although, it is expensive, having more than adequate cooling is always a great investment! smile.gif

The Noctua NH D14 comes without PWM fans (right??)
Isn't that a disadvantage?

Make sure you buy a reputable brand of PSU. Something which plenty of people have experience with. It's a very important component. Although, saying that, mine is a Coolermaster and I haven't no problems... (touch wood!)

It depends what you consider a disadvantage. I find fans revving up and down more noticeable than a constant, slightly louder fan. Saying that, the supplied fans are pretty quiet on full power, even, but also come with splitters to run them at half speed. If PWM control is important to you, then the Silver Arrow is essentially the Noctuas brother, but comes with PWM fans...

Personally, I have the Corsair HX750 picked out for my build line-up and everything about it seems to be reliable. Almost nothing but exceptionally great reviews from a couple different sites, adequate power, etc.. It's all down to personal preference but I can say, through my research, that the corsair is a good choice. Haven't looked too much into Seasonic though..

Overall the build looks great, but I'm curious if there is a reason you picked out the 7870 to match up with the 3770k. Nothing wrong with that, it just seems odd to match a latest gen cpu with a sort of dated(though still very great) gpu.

I agree that you may want to go with the Noctua cooler. Also, coollabratory makes some pretty awesome TIM(thermal paste). Do you plan to delid the cpu or keep it factory, if I may ask?

I hope to hear again on how the project goes thumb.gif

Well, In that way, 3-pin fans will be fine biggrin.gif I think I'll go for the Coolermaster, because for the price it's one of the best I think. Thankyou for your help!

Necromancer31, I would really like to have a gpu that fits better to the 3770k (not exactly the right thread...tongue.gif) And yes, I will overclock =)

btw why I chose the 7870 Hawk is because in my opinion (and some reviews) it is really well priced for the things it can do, with a bit of headroom for overclocking (As i've been told...) I'll look up Coollabratory, thankyou for the tip!

I will let you know how everything goes! As you probably already understood, this will be my first custom build! =)

Hey royh111

If I were to buy just changed a few things.

First: PSU, I personaly don't like CoolerMaster PSU, I would go with a Corsair or Seasonic thumb.gif

Second. HD2, crucial m4 or samsung 830/840. thumb.gif

And Third: Buy another Blademaster to push/pull your CPU Cooler thumb.gif

Cheers


And sorry, my english isn't the better tongue.gif

Thanks for your reply! I already changed the CPU cooler to a Noctua d14 wink.gif, also I'm already looking for another psu, but still not sure. And for the SSD, I'll look up the Samsung and crucial am see which one's the best.

What would be the best PSU wattage for this system? Keeping in mind that there is a slight change that I want to expand my pc to Crossfire configuration.

Thanks
