As for a case, we have a long running Phanteks case thread here that you might find interesting. Both ciarlanto and I frequent it. wink.gif

The AX series are excellent, but ridiculously priced. You can get an EVGA P2, which is as good as the AX, for the price of an HX.

My bad. redface.gif I had been told they were not as the should be considering their price and assumed they were like most of their other products.

What are be quiet! prices like in comparison? I've very pleased with my be quiet! PSUs.

You are correct with the exception of the AX. The BQ are very good across the board, but pricing was a bit high in the US. I would have to look at current pricing to give any opinion.

If I was buying a PSU today, it would be an EVGA P2 or G2.

Good to know.
Here BQ are not over priced.

I'm going to go with the current parts list I have. Down the road I'll upgrade some stuff. For instance. if I don't like the Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 down the road I'll replace it with a EK-XLC Predator 240.
When the core 17 6700K drops in price, I'll get one to replace the core i5 6600K.
Until then, I can only get what I can afford.

Sorry, but I think your logic is flawed. tongue.gif
You can't afford the 970, but you can afford to replace the ALF 240 'down the road'? Why not start with a cooler that you can upgrade by adding to it rather than having to replace it? Maybe a little more cost now, but way less additional cost if you need more cooling and/or add another waterblock on GPU. At least that's my logic. biggrin.gif

The top priority for a good gaming experience is first and foremos, NOT a better cooling, though it may improve a bit the performance and the gaming experience , is IMO, NOT worth a sacrifice of critical components for gaming (ie GPU).
do you honestly think 950/960 with a better cooled CPU will provide a better gaming experience than a 970 with a cpu cooler that is cheaper and potentioally a bit less efficient?

I don't understand what you are trying to say. Are you trying to express your opinion?

Yes me try say what me think, me say simpler so you understand what me say:
When talk play video games on PC:
970+'cheap' cpu cooling = good
Card slower than 970+ pricy cpu cooling = bad

While others like me think your opinions are unfounded and unsubstantiated, you are entitled to your opinions.
