My new 350D build

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just want some opinions on the parts of this build, i will be using an existing EVGA 660 TI i have laying around for the GFX card. I am going for a red and black theme here, so I am a little picky about parts. Im most interested to see if any of these parts have MAJOR problems. One of these im most unsure about is the NEX 650, which seems like its good enough. I know there's the seasonic x650, but i like the color theme/look/cables of the NEX.

NOTE:The Mobo comes with free 8gb crucial memory
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLS8G3D1609ES2LX0

I am not looking to buy or wait for Haswell considering the released benchmarks, to me it is not worth the premium a new CPU would cost for no increase in performance. I plan to stick with what is tested and true (3570k)

My understanding is that if you use a 240 rad you cannot install and optical drive. Just an FYI.
Btw, Newegg is showing the mobo you selected at $135 with 8 gb of Ram for free.
Not sure if this is out of your price range, but the Asus Maximum Gene V is mAtx, red and black and a superb performer.

Should be a sweet build. Post some pics when finished.

Yep, that is what made me lean more towards the AsRock board. $200 is a little out of what i wanted to spend, so with the fatality being cheaper and a free 8gb of ram i cant pass it up xd.

Im getting a new camera soon, so i may make a build log of this one biggrin.gif

I believe that although a 240mm radiator would go into the first optical drive, you can still place a optical drive in the second bay slot. Picture for reference!

You might want to get a 750w psu if you plan to sli, although 650 SHOULD be enough. I'd also drop the h100i and build a real loop. That case is just begging for this res.

Judging by this picture, I wouldn't think so. I think you could get a 35mm rad in there without issue. The res might be a tight fit, I think it would work. Deeper dual bay resses, maybe not. You can also put a rad in the front.

I'd probably basically do what she does here. With the previously mentioned bay res and some other different parts, but basically what she did.
