any suggestion's about this Build ? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
If you really want to build a quiet PC,

Drop Antec Kuhler 920 for Thermalright HR02-Macho $55 free shipping, its a good value cooler that comes with a decent fan, atm one of the favorite in SPCR for new builds. Or if you planning to overclock a little higher, similarly in price to Antec, Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E $90.

Drop Zalaman Case, in favor of Fractal Design Define R4 $80 free shipping, its a case with 140mm fan support, move the back fan to the front, and add a Thermalright TY147 $17 for the back.

The SSD its up to you, the difference between sata III ssds is very small, switching mechanical to ssd is very nice, but from ssd to ssd is very little. So if you want to save money go for the none pro, but be aware that none pro versions use TLC nad that will have less life/endurace than the MLC flash that its used on Pro version. With that said, there has been test on the web about it, and you probably wont have to worry, by the time its worn down you probably in another pc with another ssd.

Perbuilds liquid cooling and silence dont matte good in my experience, air cooling will be much quieter without invesating on custom waterloop, you can build a quiet watercooling setup, there are rads design for low airflow, like Alphacool Nexxus, Blackice RC1 or XSPC RX series, and get a pump that can be either variable or PWM like the Swiftech 655-PWM, get fans that you can undervolt good and have decent static pressure like Scythe Gentle Typhoons. But if go this route, i would go with case that will give you better support for watecooling like Fractal Design Arc Midi R2.

First things first, do you have a micro center near you? If you do, you can get the Mobo and CPU for a lot cheaper.

I know you have already heard this several times, and I am going to say it once more. That zalman case is total crap. It is an absolute nightmare compared to other cases. I do understand that you like the look of it, and while I firmly believe you should choose a case that looks good to you, I also believe in a case that is easy to build in and maintain.

There are cases that do look somewhat the same.

Black phantom 410 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146085 . It has the whole shiny black plastic look going for it and it has soooo many features that will make your life easy.

If you do not like it, I urge your to look at newegg and xoxide and go through every single case in your budget before you absolutely set your mind on the zalman case.

The nice thing about getting a different case is that you can possibly fit a longer radiator in the case like this cooler here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835220063

For the SSD, I would look at going with this plextor drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820249032

The problem with the non pro samsung is that it uses TLC based flash instead of MLC. MLC will last longer, is faster, and is less prone to problems in general. The plextor is sort of a compromise between the 840 and the 840 pro. It uses the far superior MLC flash, is faster than the normal 840, and will live longer in your rig, but it is more expensive. However, it is a little bit behind in all of those categories than the 840 pro but is about 20 dollars less expensive. I like to think of it as the goldilocks SSD.


Screw that, I found the 840 pro on sale http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=77218&vpn=MZ-7PD128BW&manufacture=Samsung%20Memory%20%26%20Storage&promoid=1311

I would also suggest that you look at this gigabyte mobo instead. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128592 (if you get it from amazon, you get free shipping). This board has an intel chip instead of a realtek for the ethernet port which means less latency and lagging in games. It has a realtek 898 audio chip instead of a 892 which means slightly better audio (hopefully you will save up for a real sound card). The heatsinks on the mobo cover all of the power delivery instead of just covering some of the components like the asus board does which means that you will have better overclocking results without frying any components. It is just a better board in general for 10 bucks more.

Lastly, the PSU I feel is over priced and over powered. http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=78946&vpn=P1750BBEFX&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1311

This PSU is on sale for an awesome price. It has the same power efficiency, fully modular, and is nearly half the price. XFX PSUs ARE good PSUs. These are not some cheap Chinese junk PSUs, so I highly recommend you take advantage of the sale so you can afford the upgrades I listed above.
