Everything is fine now?

Also do i need to change the fans of the h100i? I'm not sure but i think i read somewhere that they are very noisy. And someone told to buy a i5 4570 on a z87 motherboard to allow a good crossfire and have more FPS in game crossfire. But i'd like to try to overclock. Is there a big difference?

 

It depends on how much it costs. The 750W M12II is a solid unit, but the 750W SuperNOVA G2 is SIGNIFICANTLY better and AGAIN, it's only $112.99 shipped (free shipping!) from Buy.com! That's an AMAZING deal, so I strongly and sincerely urge you to take advantage of it. $112.99 shipped is only $3 more than the 750W EVGA SuperNova that you are looking at, AND THAT'S BEFORE TAX. How much is $109.99 after tax where you live? Compare that to $112.99 shipped and then you tell me: how awesome of a deal is that for a PSU that's a lot better?

Thanks a lot for your help guys!

ADHDadditiv i didn't see your first answer when i posted mine. I think I'll take your monitor. Does it haves a great respond time? I'll the GPU you recommended as well if it stay at that price when I'll be ordering and if the asus r9 280's price doesn't go down. The Swiftech H220 isn't available where on the site i'm ordering. Do you know another good water cooling system? If not, what fans should I take? I know the combo i5 4570 and z87 isn't very optimised. But there's only those motherboards that allows a good crossfire setup. And intel's processor are better for gaming. That's what my friend explained me when he recommend me the i5 4570 and a z87 motherboard. And the i5 4670-k costs too much. So I think I'll get the fx 8320 and the AsRock 990fx killer because an h100i would look awesome in that case biggrin.gif .

For the power supplie, i went with a 850w because two cables said that the power supply you guys recommended me will be enough only if I don't change the voltage of my GPU's. But I planned to OC them but I'm not sure it implies. Won't i need to change to voltage of my GPU's if I oc them? If not then I'll buy the 750W EVGA SuperNOVA G2.

Torvi, I'm planning to make a crossfire setup in a couple of years, I'm scared that the GTX 770's 2gb of Vram bottlenecks an SLI setup. That's why i prefer buying a r9 280/r9 280x.

Don't you mean "applies" instead of "implies"? ;)

 

Anyway, overvolting GPUs is optional.

A: Which site are you ordering from? I cant really suggest anything unless I know.
B: Yes the monitor I suggested has good response time, 2ms I believe. Honestly though your eyes wont notice anything 5ms or under.
C: Your friend is an idiot, an H87 board can handle just as much as a Z87, just not as good for OCing. Also, the 8320, after overclocking is much much faster then a 4570. Even before its just as fast, if not a bit quicker.
D: You probably wont overvolt your GPU, that would require modding the actual GPU. Granted I still went with an 850W PSU so I cant say anything lol.
E: Dont worry about VRAM bottlenecks. You WILL NOT experience them unless you decide to go for a 1440p monitor, or 3 1080p monitors (and the game actually supports 5760x1080)

I don't know lol. My english sucks. What i wanted to say was: Do i need to change the voltage if I overclock my GPU's. But anyways, you and ADHDadditiv answered my question. I'm planning to order on the motherboard on this site:

http://www.canadacomputers.com

And the remainder on this one:

http://www.memoryexpress.com

And are you sure that h87 motherboards handles a Crossfire setup? I think the second pci-e slot is working on x4. Wouldn't it bottleneck a r9 280x's crossfire?

Consider shopping from here
http://www.ncix.com/
This is literally the only place I shop because 90% of the time they are cheaper.

And its more dependant on which motherboard you buy. Just take a look at them, I'm sure there is one that runs it at 8x in the H87 flavor. BTW 8x is all crossfire runs at, I've tried making it go faster, cant for some reason.

I was just having a little bit of fun. "Applies" is the correct word there. The root word is "apply".

MemoryExpress beats the price of any dealers by 25% of the difference. And CanadaComputer is very close from where I live and has the best price for the AsRock 990fx Killer.

And as you can see on the link below, none of the H87 motherboards runs SLI which is the same as crossfire running at 8x.

http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/motherboard/#c=90&l=2&xcx=0


So should I change the fans of the h100i? Or I could also buy the NZXT kraken x70 or the Antec KUHLER H2O 1250.
