My new build ..input please - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I'm with Am, the case is fine. I would however consider cutting out the top of the case to make room for the rad and fans which will give you much more room on the inside, unless you're planning to mount the rad and fans onto the back of the case, outside. I have almost the same build using an Antec 1200 case, same mobo, 1055t processor, Ati 5870 GPU and an OCZ GamerXStream 850w PSU. For my CPU cooling I went with a Corsair H70. The cash I saved getting a used 5870 GPU and the 1055t, paid for my 64Gb Crucial SSD ! You want speed get an SSD, 120-128 Gb if you can afford preferably if not try out a 64Gb.

well this is what im thinking about doing for the mounting take a look at this vid ..at 29 secs in the video it will show what i want to do



also this is a couple part question if i liquid cooled my north and southbridge on the mobo will that make it easyer to over clock the cpu?

and if i do liquid cool the north and south bridge will the suport it?

No. Both of those kits are only for the CPU. The difference between these two kits is the size of the radiator; the first kit has a rad for 2 x 120 fans, whereas the second kit has a rad for 3 x 120 fans.

To OP: only thing I dont approve in your choice of parts is the PSU, it looks like a cheap and nasty one to me. I suggest you go for a Seasonic/Corsair or even Coolermaster, even if it's lower wattage. Try and go for a more efficient unit (80+ Silver/Gold efficiency) single rail PSU, even if it's lower wattage and more expensive, as it'll last longer, at lower temperature and run your system better.
i never said it looks bad or anything,i was just saying a change is nice every once in a while
