not too hot and not too cold

the benchmark i posted here clearly shows the nh-d14 is much quieter on load vs all of them except the tt water 2.0 but it runs a bit hotter

the differences for some isnt alot but i guess it counts thumb.gif
Yeah, but the problem is, they arent using the same fans for all of the coolers. This is basically a glorified, who give you the best fans stock test, which is why I hate them. Hyper 212 can be just as quiet as a noctua cooler if it has the same fans. Someone really needs to do a test, using the exact same fans on all the coolers, which is best for sound/cooling.
Personally, my H100 was whisper quiet, that is until the pump decided to start whining because I got mine during a bad production period. My friend has one too, his is still super quiet, the GPU cooler is louder.

HDD: WD 1TB Caviar Blue HDD
GPU:
PSU:
Chasis: CM Storm Stryker
Cooler:
SSD: Plextor M5S 128GB SSD ( i'd consider the 200+gb) but because the 128Gb has a promotion ATM


for GPU i was thinking GTX780 Leadtek winfast OR R9 290 Tri-X

PSU i was thinking Corsair RM650 (Modular but not full, GOLD) , X650 SEASONIC (full modular,GOLD) OR CM v700 (modular,GOLD) or any other suggestions?

Cooler: I chose Hyper 212X, is it sufficient? I dont think i would opt for AIO because they are expensive and some air coolers can be even better than AIO.

I hope to recieve feedbacks from u guys.. Thanks :-)
My Z77 Extreme4 has been trouble free, would definitely buy again. Same goes for my SeaSonic X650.
I am also sizing up a 780 or 290 to replace my tired old 6850.

i still got my z77 v pro but its socket 1155 from asus, had it for over a year now,
i did experience some weird anti surge problems and the anti screenie showed up but it happened to some other folks, maybe these boards are a bit sensitive
i disabled all kinds of power save options and things in bios and things been smooth ever since.

so guys heres my final specs
CPU: Intel Core I5 4670k
MOBO: ASrock Z87 Extreme 4
RAM: GSkill RipjawsX 2x4GB DDR3 1866mhz
HDD: WD 1TB Caviar Blue HDD
GPU: Sapphire R9 290 tri-x 4GB DDR5
PSU: CM V700 Modular PSU
Chasis: CM Storm Stryker
Cooler: Corsair Hydro H100i Liquid Cooling
SSD: Plextor M5S 128GB SSD

I decided for the 128GB SSD as it is on promotion price.. the 258 GB is not. frown.gif

about the PSU, im deciding the V700 CM or X650 SEASONIC. the difference is 3$ haha.....

For the cooler, i decided with the H100i as i've never tried an AIO before. Hopefully the loud pump noise wouldnt happen to me. *prays*

you should get a korean 1440p monitor, they are 27" and most can be overclocked to 120hz . and theres an owners thread on OCN. thats what i would buy if i was building a new rig. they run for about $300.

This what you'll be looking at when you use your computer so you might as well get a decent size screen with a good resolution!

other than that your rig looks great! smile.gif
there are obviously other options for the GPU, but that can easily be changed.

Going intel was a good idea as it will last you longer. Normally I'd tell you to get a decent budget AMD GPU since your @ 1080p 60Hz, however since the crazy price hike from miners, I will never suggest AMD because Nvidia will make a better card for the money. Until this stupid mining stops, I will only suggest Nvidia. I think a 760, 770, or 780 will all do fine and save you money. I think the 780 will last the longest but isn't too necessary on 1080p unless you like 8x MSAA. So lets put it this way (Don't rely on my years that these cards will last):

760: Around $300 and will be a great mid-range card that will run all games on high and maybe some on ultra. Probably last about 2 years to keep up with games.

770: Around $400 and lower and will be a 760 with an extra kick behind it. This means more games on ultra and last you a little longer, maybe 3 years.

780: Around $500 will will max most games and is probably the best card you'd want to get on 1080p because it'd be silly to get a 780 ti for 1080p. This could last you awhile, but no setup will last you for 6 years while keeping par with turning the settings up.

DON'T rely on my guesses for how long the cards will last. That means the card can keep the settings up real high on most games. I am not an AMD hater for GPU's, but for the last time the prices are ridiculous at the moment. Good luck on the build my friend thumb.gif
