Rig setup questions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i have a couple of questions about a rig im about to setup.

will the Noctuna D14-NH be able to cool the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition? http://www.guru3d.com/article/noctua-nh-d14-review/

And will a 750W PSU work?

Setup:
ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 AMD 880G
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition
Noctuna NH-D14
Corsair XMS3 2x2GB DDR3 1333 MHz ( PC3-10600 ) CL9 ( 9-9-9-24 )
Seagate Barracuda 1TB Sata-600
AXP 750W Power Supply with 140mm Fan
XfX Radeon HD4870 "XXX" 1GB OC

Chassi: NZXT Phantom Fulltower Red/black/white http://www.maxfps.se/product_view.aspx?productid=3133



so a few thaught on the setup would be nice mem will be upgraded to 6gb month after but just give me pointers on thing that i might need to look into the price very limited though the price of this rig is what i have to work with maybe like 100 bucks more.

Won't be worth it that much.
Top end parts + bottom-end generic 1333 CL9 RAM.
There goes the entire point of overclocking to 4Ghz+ on the 1090T....

Upgrading to 6GB will make you lose a huge chunk of performance. Why: 3 DIMMs = not dual channel. Stay with 2 DIMMs or 4 DIMMs of RAM (4GB, 8GB, etc.). Always buy at least 1600Mhz, it performs much better, costs less, and scales better with overclocking for the entire system.

I don't have my NH-D14 yet, but it's a really decent cooler even for AMD.

Looks like it will support up to 2000MHz. Maybe this RAM:

I perfer western digital hard drives over seagate hard drives. Wd has a better reliability reputation from what I have read.
