He's saying there is no reason to get RAM that needs 1.65V to run at 1600 when you can find RAM that runs at 2133 at that voltage. The G.Skill you linked is fine, but I'd get this DDR3-1866 kit for $67 after promo instead:

or if you want CL9 instead (which doesn't make much difference), you could get this set for about the same price as the stuff you linked:

I thought you were using an inteo build then the voltage doesnt.matter(as far it is 1.65v)

And those kingstone seem a bit old because used more voltage than a higher frecuency ram

That would peak at about 350W. So yeah, a good quality-made 450W PSU would be plenty.zgjULx

UPDATE!! I completed my build last Friday at my friends place but didn't even take it home until late Monday night haha. I was very busy over the weekend then girlfriend demanded attention Tuesday and now I can finally play with it!! So when I ordered the parts I ran into a problem with paypal and my card since I usually don't order that much online so the payment was stopped. So when I went to re-order my stuff again the i5-4670k was on sale for 189 on amazon!! Before I had been toying with the idea of getting a better graphics card and to me this was fate.... LOL. So after saving $30 on my cpu why not spend an extra $100 on a better gpu?! It was the only logical thing right? biggrin.gif So now I have a gtx 770 and also decided to get the SSD now rather than a few months down the road. Went over my original budget but that was to be expected.

Ran into little trouble assembling it minus the heatsink....... The mounting bracket on the heatsink, the unused AMD part, was running into a heatsink on the MOBO!! My friend and I were a little worried but luckily he had the tools to cut part of it off so after that the install was a breeze. Now I have to learn about benchmarks and video settings and such.... I feel like I have a lot to learn but luckily I'll have lots of free time over the next few days but right now I kinda just want to play Titanfall haha.

Here is a quick pic I just took.



Sadly my mobo can only support 5 fans so I've been pondering about the setup...... I'd like to add another cpu fan and one for the top of the case.

I'd like to thank everyone who helped me in this thread since I had little to no idea what i was doing and I probably wouldn't have made the best decisions by myself haha. I'm very happy with my build. Thanks again everyone!!biggrin.gif

Which case is it?
How much noise the cnps14x does?
Anything to add?

It seems really nice

Corsair 300r

I can't really compare the noise it makes to anything else other than my old laptop, which was super loud, but it seems pretty silent.

I don't know what to add really, I mean my cable management definitely needs to be worked on......
