Exactly what I came here for.
As far as i know Corsair started out making RAM and other then they are a bit overpriced i really cant see anything wrong with Corsair RAM

Think Corsair is a bit like Apple sometimes either you love them or hate for many reasons

Me i dont like them as a company not because they make bad things

I personally love corsair. Great build quality, their ram is usually cheaper then the rest (although I would rather have G.Skill), their PSU quality is among the best, their cases are among the best, and their warrenty is fantastic. Whats wrong with that, OH NEOZ! I HAV3 TO PEY A BIT MOAR FAR MY PSU T0 GAT QUARITY! THAY MEST BE EVIL!

Not all Corsair PSU´s are great the VS series is not recommended
The CX series is so minimum that you sould not buy it unless you have no other option
The Corsair GS is very average and passable and not something special at all
The TX series is alright and are decent mid range units

That leaves only the HX and AX series as high end units and even there you can find other just as good or better units for around the same money

Last none of the Corsair units are made by Corsair so saying they are Corsair quality not really true

Off topic can we get back

That is true for the PSU's, the TX, HX and AX series are the only worth while units from them. Also when did I say Corsair was produced all the parts, they put all the parts together in their nice neat box and pick all the best quality parts to put in, I never said that Corsair completely made their own PSU's.

And yes we can get back on topic. wink.gif

The extreme 4 is terrible, and I would advise against buying it. It has really crappy MOSFETs. The extreme6 is pretty similar, but with better MOSFETs. The UD5H is in a totally different class; it's PWM driver has twice the number of phases and the MOSFETs can deliver an extreme amount of power.

Yep. Extreme4 = heap of garbage.

It's not absolute garbage, but I wouldn't want to do heavy overclocks on it.

Thread Starter 
@DaveLT :

I haven't been able to find any reputed source confirming your opinion about Corsair RAM, if anything I found some good reviews about Corsair RAM & OC.

Sethris225 :

So far, only one person emitted a bad opinion about corsair, it's not yet another Corsair hate thread wink.gif

@Shilka :

Corsair RAM ? Overpriced ? Where ? They're in the same price range as GSkill or Kingston, except for the black color which is strangely more expansive than the blue or red sticks.

@Art Vanelay :

The Extreme4 is indeed quite a budget board, you pay for what you get basically, also I would see its price more at 130 and not at 150. The Motherboard debate is settled anyway, see answer under wink.gif.



So, I think my build is now final, thanks to your help guys, to your patience and recommendations !
Here is the final list, comparing the original parts to the actual one :

Computer Parts (Click to show)

CPU :
________________________________________________

Intel - Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz | $ 209.99 @ Amazon

► Intel - Core i7-3770K | $ 120 @ Intel Retail Edge

CPU Cooler :
________________________________________________

Corsair - H80i 77.0 CFM | $ 84.99 @ Amazon

► The H100i being back at its +100$ price right now, I will not go for it, I'll pick either the H100i or the H80i depending on the prices when finally purchasing the parts.

Motherboard :
________________________________________________

Original choice : Asus - P8Z77-V PRO | $ 197.98 @ Amazon
Second choice : Gigabyte - UD5H | $ 174.99 @ Ncix OR Asus Sabertooth | $ 239.99 @ Amazon

►MSI - Z77 MPOWER | $ 184.99 @ Ncix

Best bang for the buck in my price range IMO

Memory :
________________________________________________

Original choice : Corsair - Vengeance 16GB (2x8 GB) 1866 | $ 134.99 @ Newegg
Second choice : G.Skill - Sniper Series 8GB (2x4 GB) 1866 | $ 69.99 @ Newegg

►G.Skill - Sniper Series 8GB (2x4 GB) 2133 | $ 69.99 @ Newegg OR Kingston - Beast 8GB (2x4 GB) 1600 | $ 66.99 @ Newegg

I think I'll stick with G.Skill, any objections ?

Storage :
________________________________________________

Samsung - 840 Pro 256GB | $ 229.99 @ Amazon

Video Card :
________________________________________________

EVGA - GTX 670 FTW | $ 399.99 @ Amazon

►EVGA - GTX 670 FTW+ 4GB | $ 459.99 @ Amazon

Awaiting a price drop once the 7XX are out.

Case :
________________________________________________

Original choice : NZXT - Phantom (Black) | $ 102.69 @ Amazon
Second choice : NZXT - H630 | $ 149.99 @ Retail price OR Corsair - 650D | $ 174.99 @ Amazon

►Fractal Design Define R4 w/ Window | $ 89.99 @ Newegg

Power Supply :
________________________________________________

Corsair - AX750 80+ Gold | $ 134.99 @ Amazon OR NZXT - Hale90 750W 80+ Gold | $ 132.99 @ Amazon

Optical Drive :
________________________________________________

Asus - DRW-24B1ST | $ 17.99 @ Newegg

Total :
________________________________________________

$ 1390.41

Look at that ! 200$ saved, and way better components already !
Also, a lot has been learned, I shall be eternally thankful wink.gif
Thanks guys \o/
