Should be pretty gewd, your gonna wanna get an aftermarket CPU cooler though!

Does your motherboard have VRM sinks?

thx a lot for the reply guys~
what is VRM sink?? Im not sure if my MB has that...
about the video card... im just gonna use my old 4870 for now... maybe get a better one later when needed...
about the cpu cooler...
Im thinking about getting Thermalright HR-02....
i found many good reviews about that...
since my last pc was really loud.... eventho its kinda costy....
any suggestions?
im trying to avoid having another loud build....
Im also curious about my RAM.... I don't c many ppl oc with this ram.
why is that?
thx again!

VRM heatsinks, should have been more descriptive .

With that chip, youd be fine with a cooler such as the Coolermaster Hyper 212+. Cheap and a good performer. Just put another fan on!

Anyways, i believe that the ram your using is pretty new. So thats why!

Ya his board has VRM heatsinks, looked it up, so once you get a decent after market cooler you will probably get a decent overclock

i c i c....
i searched around and i found that people say my MB has pretty good VRM heatsinks... and i really hope so lol...
again... about the ram...
my MB only supports DDR3 2200/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules .
what Im getting now is "G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 Memory"

But I see most people choose 4GB instead of 8GB.... with 1600 instead of 1333. there must be a reason?
but seems like my MB doesnt support that.
So my only choice is 1333?

I don't know much about the "CL9-9-9-24" thing. the less the better right?
which one should I choose then?
G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 Memory
or
G.SKILL F3-10666CL7D-4GBRH Ripjaws PC3-10666 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1333 CL7-7-7-21 Core i5 1.5V Memory Kit

Im pretty happy with my new build now. just a bit worried about the ram since im gonna oc.
suggestions pls!
thx a lot

"9-9-9-24" are called timings, and yes the the lower the better. However they can be changed later.

Let me double check, but im almost certain that your motherboard will support 1600mhz memory.

Most people have 4GB because its all you need for a single monitor gaming setup. Also having to much can cause issues. But dont worry 8GB is fine

Also, check out the Corsair Vengeance series of ram. Its designed for OCing on the sandybridge platform.
Corsair Vengeace link

Edit: theres a way for making it work however, its not that friendly. Anyway, you can just set the RAM running at 1333mhz instead of 1600mhz

Edit2: heres the link, if you plan on OC youll need memory thats gonna run at 1600mhz. Well depends how high your OC is.
I think its the 3rd post.
