Need some advice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I came across this build for sale in my locality:

Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
Asus P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD Mini ITX LGA1155
Patriot Viper 3 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
Samsung 840 EVO 500GB 2.5" Solid State DiskWestern Digital Caviar Black 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM
EVGA GeForce GTX 690 4GB Video Card
BitFenix Prodigy (Orange) Mini ITX Tower Case
Corsair Gaming 700W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
[Perfect Pixel] YAMAKASI 300 SPARTA S-IPS 30" 2560x1600 Speaker Tempered Glass

The guy agreed to sell it for $1,200 for everything but the 500GB SSD.

First of all, does this sound like a good deal?

Secondly, how bad to you guys think the thermal constraints would be in a system this size? I'm used to a HAF 922 (A.K.A. The biggest bloody mid-size tower that exists), so I'm wondering if the components in this build would be problematic. Thanks.

Any feedback would be much appreciated as this deal will be happening soon if at all.

If you buy the listed specs (excluding monitor) on Newegg, it'll be around $1700. $1200 sounds good assuming the 1600 mon is included.

You'll be moving from the biggest mid tower case to one of the biggest itx cases so most tower coolers will fit. The main problem would be finding a cooler that doesn't interfere with the ram or pcie slots or the daughter vrm board. You could try the CM hyper212x or the Noctua NHL14

So you save $500 biggrin.gif

My first priority would be - how much warranty is left on each part - how old are some parts? thumb.gif
