Help with my new build - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Thanks, I think I'll get a 750w PSU instead. Because surely when you overclock, you will use more power?

Ok, here's my latest updated build:

Intel Core i7 2600K - Processor
16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600mHZ - RAM
Noctua NH-D14 - CPU Air Cooler
Asus P8P67 Pro - Motherboard
1280MB Palit GTX570 3800MHz - GPU
750W Corsair Enthusiast - PSU
CiT 1001, Black Mid Tower Gaming - Case
6 x 120mm Antec TriCool Blue LED - Mini Cooling Fan
Sharkoon 4" Blue CCFL - Blue Nano Stick

Sounds good? But the question is... will the Mid-Tower case will fit everything and that there won't be any space conflict between the CPU cooler and the Vengeance Ram sticks? I chose that case because... it looks so awesome ):

Hmm, I just checked the Noctua D14's compatibility list:
http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=c...s_id=34&lng=en

Says that the Vengeance sticks are not compatible In other words, the D-14 won't fit with the four Vengeance sticks.
What should I do...? Go for water cooling? Should I get Corsair H70 Hydro Series CPU Cooler?

I heard from a person that Palit is unreliable with thier GPUs. Should I go for a Gigabyte one? 1280MB Gigabyte GTX 570. It also has 3 tri fans!

Yes. But the processor doesn't consume much to begin with. The Core i7 2600K draws about 128W at load on stock speeds. When overclocked from 3.4GHz to 4.9GHz, the Core i7 2600K will draw about 234W at load.

Trust me on this, unless you're going to be doing some very intensive video editing (at resolutions over 1080p) you won't need this much RAM. Grab 8GB of something along the lines of the G. Skill Ripjaws X (CL7 or CL8).

Great choice. The D14 performs around, but usually better, than the H70. However, this HSF will not fit if all the DIMM slots are filled (which will be the case if you get 16 GB of RAM). Also, it will be hard to find a mid-tower case that this monster will fit into. I am still recommending that you look into a Rasa kit, as it would offer the best performance, but an H50, H70, or D14 are fine choices.

Go with EVGA, Asus, or Gigabyte. Great brands with great warranties.

A 650W unit is perfect, giving you more than enough headroom for overclocking, along with giving you some space if you want to upgrade in the future. Something like the Antec TruePower New TP-650, XFX P1-650X-CAG9, or XFX P1-650X-CAH9 would be a inexpensive and high-quality solution.

To be completely honest, this looks like a cheap case. You are better off spending a bit more money to get a nice, well-built case than buying a cheap case that you have to replace every year. When I built my first computer, I invested in the Raidmax Smilodon Extreme Black, solely because it looked awesome from the pictures Newegg had listed. Two weeks later, I returned the case and bought a HAF 932. The Smilodon was nothing like I had expected (shoddy workmanship, etc), and had given me so much trouble (poorly implemented tool-less design, sharp metal edges inside the case, little space for cable management) that it just wasn't worth it.
That being said, if you decide to go with the Noctua NH-D14, a full-tower would be in your best interest. If you decide to go with a H50 or H70, you don't need anything larger than a mid-tower and your original selection, the CM 690 II Advanced would be perfect. Or, if you decide to go with the Rasa kit, either the CM 690 II Advanced or a full-tower case like the HAF 932 would be viable solutions.
