Yet another i5 build

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Wouldn't feel right if I hijacked someone's thread, so... here's mine.
Currently my build would be something like this:

CPU: Intel i5 2500K
Mobo: MSI P67A-C45
Memory: Exceleram Rippler 2x2GB 1600MHz CL7
GPU: MSI GTX 570
PSU: Chieftec CFT 650/700W
Case: CM 690 II / NZXT Hades / NZXT Guardian 921 Redline Editon
For cpu cooling I'll probably take Hyper TX3 or 212+, 'cause I won't overclock a lot, and they'll be better then those little stock coolers.

What do you think? Any suggestions?

Never heard of the PSU.
I'd recommend something else.
post #3 of 17
I would recommend this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-460-_-Product



And you might as well buy the Gigabyte 570 to match


For PSU I would go with the Antec True Power New 650w

I'm afraid that pc market here is very limited vendor-wise... Currently there are only asus and msi p67 available, and since I won't use 2nd pci-e or esata which asus has, I decided to go the msi way. As for the PSUs, It's pretty much the same as with mobos... Chieftec, Cooler Master, AXP (XION), LC Power, and Silverstone Strider which is a lot more expensive then it should be.

Serbia. I mean, there are some resellers that have Corsair and Antec PSUs and so on... but their prices are far from normal.

Hmm, spend $80~150 on PSU or $1,000 worth of fried components. I dunno about you, but I know which one I'd pick.

Silverstone is the best brand among which you described. Get that.

Actually, Chieftec is about 90EUR which is like $116 so it doesn't really fall in with the cheap ones.

EDIT1: Also, I found on another forum (not sure if I should say which one, as it could be seen as an advertisement...) that Chieftec's PSUs are built by CWT just as Corsair's PSUs.

EDIT2: There's also mention of Chieftec PSUs in this thread. Basically, Phaedrus2129 pretty much says the same thing - that Chieftec's CFT units are the same as Corsair's TX, but with an added layer of protection.

Ah, then that's good. Just haven't hear of Chieftec before so I was wary. Might be Europe only.
