(New Build Plan A10 5800K) - PSU and CPU Cooling info help!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello guys!

I have AMD A10-5800K, Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-D3H and Coolermaster HAF-XB.

I need help or some recommendation regarding PSU and Cooling. I have no intentions of overclocking but maybe dual graphics. So, I need to know how much wattage of PSU should I get. I am planning to buy Coolermaster Extreme 2 725W do you think it's too much? And 2nd thing is the CPU Cooling system. I am also planning to buy Noctua NH-L12 because I don't like the heaviness of NH-D14.

But the pre-filled water cooling solutions like the Cooler Master Seidon 120M, Thermaltake Bigwater A80 and Antec KÜHLER H₂O 920 caught my attention!

I know a little about the pros and cons of a Water Cooling System and I just want to know if these water cooling solutions are disposable?

I am using an overclocked 5600K FM2 rig.
Initially i had Corsair 600CX v2 from the previous build ,which consisted of a failed 970A-UD3.

I have replaced the power supply with a new Enermax NAXN ENP 450AGT and it seems i have made a good choice.

A cooler for a 125 W TDP CPU is a good choice.
I personally use some old Cooler Master Hyper TX2 with my 5600K and seems to be good for the job.
Use copper piped coolers.

LOVE the HAF-XB for starts.

There is no need for closed loop coolers on that chip, something like a Cooler Master Hyper 212 would be fine, especially in a HAF-XB

Depending on the GPU you plan to use, you may not require much more than 500 watt. Please specify chosen GPU

Thanks! So, the air cooling is better after all! What about the TT Contact 39? is it ok?

Thank you too! Yeah It was love at first sight for me with HAF-XB! Hyper212 EVO or the Hyper212X and TT Contact 39 are some of my options and regarding the GPU the only compatible gpu with A10-5800K for dual graphics is the 6670 afaik. So, I guess I'd be looking for that gpu card or otherwise the SAPPHIRE HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 which is available here in my place and a little cheaper too compare to others.

..... can i join the club when i'm done with my build? smile.gif

Well in that case you could get around 400 watt PSU

If you haven't bought the PSU yet, do not buy the CM Extreme 2 725! First off you don't need nearly that much wattage, and it's a low-quality unit manufactured by "Enhance Electronics" and uses all Teapo capacitors.

A couple much better selections would be Rosewill's Capstone 450w, or Seasonic's G-Series 450w.

I second these PSU's. I have a Seasonic 650X Series and it is a champ, so I can only assume that the G-Series is still quality, also it is Gold rated, which, for a sub $100 semi-modular PSU, is a freaking steal, buy that up as soon as possible. As for the CPU cooler, I would suggest the Cooler Master 212 EVO because the pipes are set up a bit differently from the 212+ so that the surface area of contact with the CPU is greater. I have one and it keeps my Phenom II 965 BE cool under full load, 48C max during gaming and 50C max during Prime95 and IntelBurnTest. That case is also a great case, I am a fan of Cooler Master products in general. Happy building. Cheers.

Thanks for your suggestions guys! But brands like Rosewill and Seasoninc are not available I mean, I still have to find one. Most common brands here are Corsair, Cooler Master, Thermaltake and Coolmax.

Are you shopping online? If so, what sites are you using? Found these PSU's on newegg.com.

-Corsair CX600M 79.99USD Bronze Rated Semi-Modular
-Thermaltake Tough Power 550W 99.99USD Gold Rated


This list was created by an OCN member. It is organized and very helpful. Recommended Power Supplies

Hope this was helpful. Good luck.
