What do you guys think of my build?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey, guys, sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, kinda noobish here... but anyway... here's my build:

CASE: NZXT Phantom 410, $109
CPU: Core i5-3570K, O/C to 4.5, 1.18 vcore, $189
Heatsink: Noctua NH-D14, $80
GPU: MSI TwinFrozr 680, no O/C, $400
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport, 2x8GB, DDR3-1600, $79
MOBO: Asus Maximus V Gene, $200
PSU: Seasonic X-850 80+ Gold, $160
SSD: Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB, $190
HDD: Toshiba 2TB 7200rpm, $90
FANS: 4x Scythe Ultra KAZE, $48
Controller: NZXT Sentry 2, $25
ODD: Asus DVDRW, $20

Monitor: Asus PA-238Q, $183

Total Cost: ~$1590 for tower


What do you guys think?

Couldn't get an OC on the card at all, which irks me, but I brought it open box anyway... might see if MSI is nice enough to do a RMA, because even 20 megahertz above stock crashes Unigine Heaven, and 30 makes it bluescreen... *roll*

But anyway, opinions wanted!!

P.S. I couldn't get the processor OC stable at 4.6 even feeding it 1.25... seems odd to me, but... *shrug*

I would have probably gone with less RAM but that's because I only play games. I assume you require the 16GB for other purposes. Other than that, looks like some good quality parts and a solid build!
