I've got another question if you don't mind.

Are these Xigmateks better than the NZXT FZ? They seem to have better CFM and less noise.

You should never trust the numbers they give you 9 out of 10 times its a flatout lie

I know both Xigmatek and Bitfenix lie about their noise level

What i would do is to ask a fan expert here on OCN that knows what the fans are REALLY like

Someone like Tator To knows

Pretty sure there are others just no one else springs to mind

I checked on YouTube for the Xigmatek and NZXT, they both sound almost the same. I'll ask someone else just to confirm, but probably buying one of those two.

Thanks again.

I'm trying to sell my current parts so as to get enough cash for a new PSU.

I need a FULLY modular PSU (BitFenix Alchemy sleeving should be compatible with it), probably up to 750W. Any ideas which I should get? I was leaning towards the Corsair AX760.

Also, how come the new ones still say 80+ efficiency but are still more efficient than my HX1000?

As for LED Strips, are there any ones around 2.5 metres? Since the 2m NZXT will leave an empty spot in my Thermaltake Xaser.

The Cooler Master V is the same PSU as the AX760/860 its just cheaper and it seems to have less coil whine problems

The best 750 watts PSU money can buy will be the Antec High Current Pro Platinum if its as good as its 850 watts big brother

Only problem is its not out yet

But on the other hand you said you would wait anyway so wait for the Antec High Current Pro Platinum and you will be set for many years with a damm good PSU

I'll definitely pick one out of these 3 if I get enough cash then.

I have a few more questions regarding airflow in the case

Firstly, I'll be having the following fan setup:

Intake:
1 fan on the front
2 at the bottom

Exhaust:
1 in the back
1 on top


1. Since the Phanteks heatsink has 2 fans, do I set them up to intake air (from the ram area) and exhaust it from the back? Or should I configure the fans to both intake on the heatsink? I think the first option is better, just need more opinions.

2. My case has a vent on the top panel, thus I'm wondering whether I should switch the top exhaust fan to intake, rather than exhaust.

3. As already mentioned, my case has a vent on the top panel, and that is where the PSU fits in. Thus, should the power supply fan be drawing air from the top or from the bottom (facing up or down). If it will be drawing from the bottom, I'm afraid that it will be sucking in hot air from the Phanteks.

Link of case fan areas, for clarity: http://www.thermaltake.com/db/Editor/Assets/vg4000bns_coolersystemairco.jpg

I got the rig assembled and working properly, however I have one more question.

The RAM isn't clocking to 2133Mhz by default. Should I just increase the multiplier and leave the voltage/timings automatic?
