You don't have to do it right away, but I'd definitely recommend the I5 6600K. for the price it's super bang for your buck. Most can get it overclocked from 3.5-4.2ghz with no voltage change and see barely any increase in temps. Your cpu cooler is okay, if you're looking at getting the most out of an Intel processor, i'd recommend the cooler I have. You'll get much lower temps and can overclock higher. I hate anything corsair, overpriced in nearly all scenarios. My cooler £67. beats every corsair cooler going.

Maybe get one or two parts a month and slowly transition to an Intel build.

I don't have any custom cables yet, as I didn't find the price point of £75 very appealing. That's almost as much as my power supply alone!! But get these, make sure you get the right ones for your particular corsair PSU. https://cablemod.com/product/cablemod-b-series-dpp-cable-kit-black-red/

Noctua fans are over-priced and look dead ugly in my opinion. most get them for the 'silence' they have. I personally would never buy one, £18 for 1 fan?

I've been trying to find some alternatives to corsair, now it's entirely your choice what SP fans you end up getting but personally I have used corsair Fans and I hate them.
There are these, which are identical to my parvum fans, but they are black/red. they are really good at moving air. I recommend six of these for the front/top. You won't be able to mount this on the rad as they don't use screws. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/alpenfoehn-120mm-wing-boost-2-plus-pwm-fan-red-fg-018-al.html

Because you won't see the front/top fans unless the sides are off, i'd just stick with a corsair fan for the radiator. Now if you decide to upgrade to a 240mm radiator in the future, bear in mind you will only be able to fit three fans in the front, 1 on the rear and 2 on the rad. so if you plan to get a new rad for your cpu buy three of those alpenfohn fans for the front, and get 2 corsair SP fans for the rad. but if you decide not to do that, get six of those alpenfohn fans, and get one, or maybe two corsair SP fans for push/pull. i don't know if that will get you better cooling performance on a thin rad

Not all noctuas fans are tradational brown and beige, which some find un attractive, myself included. The redux lineup from noctua is great as well. I currently run them in my new system and have in another rig for over a year. They have a stealth grey and tan color scheme and have pmw modems with respectable AF and SP. They arnt silent, no fan is unless it completely useless but their build quality is that of no other but maybe the ap15s and the new ek vardar's

So, I haven't done much with the computer until May. The case fans and the rear I/O LED on my H440 do not work. Any suggestions?
post #4285 of 4481
Took all of your advice and I saved up more money and sold some parts of my original build. I'll be reusing a lot of the original components such as Fans, HD Storage, and Case. With the money I saved up, as well as the money I got back from the parts I sold, I got enough to upgrade a ton of the big components such as the Motherboard, CPU, Ram, GPU, CPU Cooler, and PSU (for future SLI. Also I was at Microcenter this morning and it just so happened that they just received Five ZOTAC Geforce GTX 1080s that morning and were almost out of stock. I quickly jumped on it and was able to snag the very last one at that location. The cashier was explaining to me how lucky I was because they didn't even post online that they had 1080s in stock on their eCommerce website microcenter.com so I'm very fortunate to say the least. But nonetheless here are some pics of my upgrades that I will be included in this rebuilding process. Unfortunately I won't be able to begin the rebuild until tomorrow morning due to lack of time today sadsmiley.gif. But I'll keep you guys posted and upload some photos along the way.

good bye AMD hello intel/nvidia hahaha! Didn't expect you to get most of it all sorted that quick. However, the 6700k isn't that useful!!! I7 won't gain a huge amount in game, that's why I5 is becoming the gaming market share, and i7 for more bench marking and such. If the 6700k wasn't much more than the 6600k then it would be fair. In the UK it's about 90 pound more which didn't suit me! Corsair ram, not what I like! I'm just biased to all things corsair, hate them with a passion as they're products have always gone wrong, I think i'm just unlucky with them. Same with the asus motherboard, but that board is basically the same as mine! Glad you got ZOTAC as they're part of the GALAX brand so basically similar to me smile.gif I don't like reference coolers though, but the 1080 is a killer card. You now have a better pc than me *crys*

SLI with reference coolers is definitely better, but for asthetics I'd always go with third party coolers, just look so much nicer to me.

I just purchased an NZXT from Amazon (I assume new version or I will be sending it back) anyways, if I am not mistaken the included fan hub is for PWM correct? I have never utilized PWM on my builds (its been years now) and would like to take advantage of it but it can be a bit overwhelming for a first timer. So essentially I want to be on the lookout for fans with 4 pin connections is that correct? What is the difference b/t 3 and 4 pin fans? Just that a 4 pin makes its pwm essentially? As long as a 4 pin fan is plugged into this hub it will be controlled by way of mobo right?

I feel like this image could be very helpful, but before I go plugging in 10 different wires I'd like to make sure I have it all sorted out. So the "NZXT Fan 1, 2, 3, 4) would all be case fans right, and as long as they are 4 pin I'm good to go with PWM.

The "molex power" is just what I would be connecting to the PSU?

I'm confused about "PWM cable to CPUFAN1" is this cable coming from the hub itself or from somewhere else? Where does it connect?
Which leaves me confused about "CPUFAN" what exactly is this? Where is it coming/going?

Also I will be purchasing an AIO CPU cooler, where will I be running that too?

Sorry for the length its just a bit overwhelming.

I would take you a little more seriously as a hardware rep if you used proper spelling and punctuation. Starting sentences off with "And" ?

While I agree the rep's spelling, punctuation, sentence syntax, etc. leave something to be desired, putting a shadow on his credibility, there is nothing wrong with starting a sentence with "And" in certain circumstances, including the instance you quoted. In this case, it is used to show his last comment was almost an afterthought.

the original H440 (I assume this is the case you've bought) Had a fan hub, but isn't PWN. only the new 2015 edition case has a PWN fan hub. I think it can take 8 fans, maybe 10 I can't really remember. I have 3 fans connected to mine, and to get the PWN to work you need to plug the cable from the PWN hub onto a CPU fan header. (most motherboards come with two). As for your AIO most come with a fan splitter where both fans connect into it, you will want to connect that to the other CPU fan header. for your rear fan, you can either connect it to the rear PWN hub, or connect it to a system fan header which is also PWN.

to adjust speeds use your bios.
