Thanks for all of the builds guys, but I think I will go with the z87x ud3h mobo. There have been tons of newegg reviews on bios problems and bad USB ports on the new asrocks. Besides, Gigabyte's uefi is way better and the board is $15 less.

With the money I save, I will probably use the hx650-its modular and made of good parts, and it has that corsair branding which means it is going to be great.

Well Corsair CX is a bit crappy and not units are not always best for the price.

Branding means nothing with PSU´s its a waste of time going by brand

The quality and value of a PSU cannot be judged by its brand name. The HX650 is a good example. This PSU is the SeaSonic G Series internally (the Gold-rated HX650, not the Bronze-rated one). So this means that internally, these PSUs are identical. Ok, knowing that, I want to point something out that I feel is rather important The HX650 has 2 x 6+2-pin PCI-E cables and it's $119.99 shipped from Newegg, or $109.99 after the rebate card which takes 1½ to 2 months to get mailed out to you. Not bad, right? No. The 650W SeaSonic G Series has 4 x 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors and it's $104.99 + $3.99 shipped ($108.98 shipped) from Newegg right now. Which PSU would you rather have?

 

To take it further, most good quality-made 650W PSUs have 4 x 6+2-pin PCI-E connectors! So, why does the Gold-rated HX650 only have 2? The Bronze-rated unit (the older one) has 4, so what gives? What did Corsair do? I'll tell you what they did: they decided that they needed to give it 9 SATA power connectors instead of 8, and 8 Molex (peripheral) connectors instead of 5. Maybe that would benefit someone, but what if you needed 2 more PCI-E connectors? Then what are you going to do? Use adapters? What if you needed those extra Molex connectors for other things like fans? Now what? Oops! Now it's time to buy a new PSU.

 

I'm tellin' ya, I'm really starting to hate Corsair's PSU department. This isn't the only PSU of theirs that I could nit-pick about like this.

well on topic of PCI-E connections. the Capstone i just got.. i only has 1 cable, but its 2 cables put together. i have never seen that before and i was like O-o
i havent installed it in my friends PC yet
the main thing i hate about Molex and Sata is that there are too many connections on one cable. i only needed three on a cable and i had 6

anywho TwoCables you know your stuff when it comes to PSU! XD so im glad you came across my threads

Yeah, it's normal for a PSU that has two PCI-E connectors to have them both on the same cable. For a modular PSU, this is the best way to do it. For a non-modular PSU, they could potentially have one cable for each connector!

 

Anyway, this is fun for me, so it's all good! :)
