The GTX750Ti might look a strange choice in this configuration but I only game occasionally, main goal of this rig is to get the FX stable @ 4,5-4,7Ghz. The only part that is not certain yet is the cpu cooling..the Corsair H100i would perform a few degrees better but I'm not sure if it is a reliable cooling solution..what's your opinion.. custom build liquid cooling is out of my budget.

Maybe you have some good air cooling alternatives for the Noctua:D
I might get a better GPU in the future so that's why I decided to go for a 550W psu

Please let me know which improvements can be made to this setup

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/3vDao Better performance going from a gtx 750 ti to a R7 265 or a R7 270 (R7 270 is basically similar to a PS4 with a little better performance due to faster speeds then the PS4) A R7 270 is about the same price as what you listed. I also changed the PSU to a Be Quiet 750 thats full modular, not semi like the XFX, plus its quiet since your getting a Noctua and those are silent. Picked a FX-8350, better binned then the FX-8320, for pure gaming sure you could just go FX-6350 but there will come times in poorly coded games or steaming where the extra core help out a bit. Just worth the extra coin in the long run. Still 4.5-4.7Ghz is doable especially with only running two sticks of ram. I had my wifes pc which had a Noctua NH-D14 running 4.7Ghz for months till i got a H100, H100 was so load i put some fan resistors to drop the fan speed to make it quiet which temps are about what i had with the noctua just a little more space to deal with now.

Thanks for your input but a FX8350 will be out of my budget:rolleyes: I'm from the Netherlands but I tookthe prices in GBP because pc part picker is not available in the Netherlands, in Germany the 450D is not available yet. The price difference from FX6300 to FX8350 is roughly 100USD.

I checked my selected psu again, that is also full modular so whould be fine with a FX6300 and R7 265. What do you thank about the H100i combined with Noctua NF-F12 PWM, 120mm

NH-D14 is plenty for a FX-63**/83**. I had a NH-D14 on a FX-8320 and was hitting 4.7ghz with 1.488v.

H100 with noctua fans would not be bad at all. R7 265 would be the better choice for gaming, or a R7 270 if you can get it for the same price as a R7 265. Fx-63xx is fine for gaming. Just research reviews on the psu you want and try to get a full modular one.

Motherboard: Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard

With that motherboard, youll be able to control both cpu and chassis (even 3pin) fans from software, Fan Xpert found in the AI Suite 2. So the H100 would be no problem if you wanted to save money reusing it. If you are going to get an Asus 970 board instead of a 990 board, then the EVO M5A97 version is better than the plain version (and much better than the LE version) because of better digi+ vrm section.

Motherboard will be at least a Asus M5A97 Evo R2.0..990 would be overkill in my opinion as I never gonna run SLI or Crossfire. The only reason would be because the 990 might have better heatsinks and thus better vrm temps

Do you think there is enough room to run the H100i in push / pull in a 450D? Currently there is a Club3D R9 270 '14 Series available at almost the same price as the 750Ti or R265:D
I will have to check to psu though..I don't think a 550 is strong enough

There are not much full modular psu's available in the 500-600 watt category available over here.
