Ok so I'm a total NOOB. This is my first Rig I'm building and I need some help! If you guys have time to read this and help, I deeply appreciate it!

My Parts:

Processor- Intel Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz LGA 1155 Processor (Ivy Bridge)

Motherboard- Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard

Power Suppy- Corsair Professional Series Gold 850-Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified High-Performance Power Supply - CMPSU-850AX

Video Card- EVGA SuperClocked+ 02G-P4-2684-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

HD- Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache

SSD- Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

RAM- G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX

CD/DVD- Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST

OS- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Case- Corsair 600T (Graphite)


So I was worrying mainly about the airflow. I just bought the Cool Master 212 EVO at Microcenter last night. I think I'm keeping my fans stock except the front and back ones. I am replacing the front with the 200M Cool Master Megaflow and I'm swtiching the back out with the 120m Cool Master. I am not touching the top stock fan yet. But does anyone have any recommendations? Should I replace the top with some other fan and should I keep the Cool Master 212 EVO to cool my CPU? I heard the H60 or H80 are the most popular one that people are using. Any help would be appreciated! thumb.gif

I haven't built this yet, but I have all the supplies sitting here right now, I'm looking to build this within by Wednesday!

Are you intending to overclock your CPU at all?

The answer to that right now if no. Maybe down the road I will overclock it when I get some experience to my belt, but as of now, that's a no.

NZXT has a little higher cfm, but those are still excellent fans. A nice variety of styles, CFM and colours to chose from.

There are a few options to chose from for the top fan. You could leave the 200mm fan that's there. If you don't have any noise issues with it, it will do a fine job. If you replace the front fan and the rear 120, consider making the front a high cfm fan so you can create positive pressure inside the case. You could also use 2 x 120mm fans in the top if you want more pure airflow. I would not recommend making them intake unless you have a dust filter. If you use a good fan controller, you can control the fans well enough to create positive pressure at any noise level by making sure the intake fans are always moving more air than the exhaust fans.

Positive pressure will force air out of all the areas in the case with no fans, like seams, drive bay covers etc. so they don't get clogged up with dust. If you don't mind modding, you can use a dremel to remove the mesh from the top and front of the case to increase air flow and reduce noise. This is the perfect time for that since you haven't started the build yet.

As for a cooler, that's really a personal choice. There are great air and closed loop water coolers available that will all do a good job cooling your CPU. The H60 is a little older now, but not a bad choice for the price. Most are using H80s or H100s (or similar coolers from other companies). Even Intel has a nice water cooler now. The common theme here is price. No matter how good your closed loop water cooler is, you can always find an air cooler that will be very close, if not even, in performance for quite a bit less money. Go through the thread and look at the pictures. If you decide you like the looks of having a small water block on the cpu then go with a water cooler. If you like the large air coolers, then go with an air cooler. The performance difference is pretty small (for the high end air coolers). Personally, I've done three builds for personal use with three different water coolers over the last year. I'm not going back to air. I think the water coolers are worth the price.

If you want really great airflow, remove the hard drive bays and mount one inside the optical drive bays. This will accommodate your hard drive and ssd while removing the obstacles partially blocking the air from the front intake. Again, you can see examples of this throughout the thread.

Good luck, and don't forget to post some pics for us when you're done.

Edit: Just thought I would mention, the Corsair Hydro series coolers, with the exception of the H40, all have 5 year warranties. If you decide to go with one, rest assured they stand behind their product.
