Will new build work? - Page 5

post #41 of 78
Rosewill doesn't make PSUs, rather, they put their name on PSUs, and they offer everything from mediocrity to purely exceptional. OEMs are Sirtec, Solytec, ATNG and Super Flower.

The solytec made units are pretty low end and they make many of the budget PSUs sold under the Rosewill name with no efficiency certification. The Stallion series is all solytec for example.

Sirtec is the same OEM that OCZ uses (the Rosewill Hive series, for example, has the same internals as a modstream as I recall), so those aren't bad, but by todays standards, they are nothing special.

Super Flower is the OEM for the Lightning, Capstone, Tachyon, and Silent Night series, all are exceptional units with good warranties.

ATNG makes stuff for Rosewill at all rungs of quality. Many of their value oriented PSU series share ATNG as an OEM for some models while soly does others. ATNG also made the popular and respectable green and Xtreme series units (by todays standard, much like the hive, nothing special, but these were great value PSUs a couple years ago before there was serious price competition for higher efficiency units took root). The very nice 80+ Platinum rated Fortress series is also made by ATNG.

----

Rather than trying to sift through to determine "what's good," there is a pretty easy surefire method of picking a "good" Rosewill PSU. Anything they are currently selling with an 80 Plus certified efficiency rating or better, is one of the nicer units from ATNG, Sirtec or SuperFLower. . The Gold and Platinum rated units are stellar.

Hi guys, thanks for al replies!

I've been searching for case reviews, and ended up with maybe choosing another case. The Zalman Z11 plus seems like a B-case. A better option in my opinion would maybe be a Corsair Carbide series case. The Corsair Carbide 500R(greyish-black or white) might be better. I'd like to hear your thoughts of it!

Zalman z11 plus: http://www.zalman.com/global/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=476

Corsair Carbide 500R (white/grey): http://www.corsair.com/us/pc-cases/carbide-series-pc-case/carbide-series-500r-white-mid-tower-case.html

the Corsair is like 50 bucks more expensive than the Zalman is though...

Avoid zalman, their stuff is generally poorly made. I have the 500R myself and it's an amazing case, couldn't really ask for more! smile.gif Something like a Fractal Design R4 would be great as well.

I would prefer the Corsair. what about the 400R, are there really much differences between 400R and 500R?

Not really much difference, just a bit less room and no fan controller. The fan controller sucks anyway tongue.gif The 400R is a great case and has room for a 240mm rad up top smile.gif

For the cpu cooler:

Noctua NH D14 or NZXT Havik 140?

edit: And G.Skill Ares 2x8 GB 1866 Mhz CL10,
or Corsair vengeance 2x8 gb 1600 mhz CL10?
Where the Vengeance are about $18,00 cheaper(calculated from €)

Thanks guys!

The Noctua performs alot better than the Havik however the Havik looks alot better in my opinion. I'd get the Corsair RAM, can never go wrong with Corsair memory smile.gif

Will Corsair vengeance high profile RAM fit under a noctua NH D14 CPU Cooler on a Asrock z77 extrreme 4 MoBo?

Thanks!thumb.gif
post #50 of 78
If I were you I'd go with the low profile version just to be safe but I'm sure someone here with the same setup would be able to tell you for sure.
