doesnt list 1155
1. As far as coolers/heatsinks are concerned, 1155 is 1156.

2. The CM 212+ is probably the best budget cooler around. It performs on the $50 scale, but on newegg goes for about $30 last I checked.

3. Besides the fact that the PSU you listed seems like it's trash, there is no and I mean absolutely NO way you will need 750W. That kind of wattage is for really big processors with XFire/SLI top of the line, i.e. SLI 580s. If all you've got is a 2600k and a 5770, you won't want more than 550W. The great news is, since you don't need as many watts you can get a good PSU quality wise and feature-wise. Modularity is always handy.

1155=1156 for mounting, i promise you. The socket holes are exactly the same.

Thank you, Looking into other PSU's but to be honest, if ill be going with the 1155 id like to have that extra wiggle room on the Psu in case we upgrade later on

Good to know, that just opened alot of doors, that cooler you mentioned looks great, it ships with 2 fans, you only need 1 apparently but if you use both you can as well, apparently it spins at a fixed 2200 rpm, so its not the quietest cooler, but who cares if its doing its job!

If you have a Microcenter nearby I'd get the cooler and psu there. They have a PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk II 650 Watt that is 80 plus silver certified at 88% efficiency for $100 here:

http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0337655

and the hyper 212+ for $28 here:

http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0315397


If you really want a 750watt psu though they have the antec earthwatts 750 for $110 and the corsair 750tx for $120, but the pc power and cooling 650w seems like a very solid psu. Here is a review:

did that last night my friend on air, no joke.

Anyways this guy says he owns a company, you own a company 1k for a CPU isn't much.

Checked XS some of the 990X threads, the 990x are OCing like monsters just like SB.
but can it run/handle Crysis?

that PSU is wayy to much for an OCZ unit. PC and power cooling is owned by OCZ now, they used to be good.

You want a nice seasonic unit for that price, efficiency rating means almost next to nothing unless its a very high wattage PSU.

Checkout Jonnyguru.com he does PSu reviews best.

XFX650 watt is a seasonic build PSu and very good contender and its cheaper.

That PSu is ok tho, both are in the same class, but i wouldn't pay 100 for a 650 watt psu.

If you're never going to run SLI, save yourself a few bucks and go with the plain Asus P8P67 (not the pro) or even the Gigabyte P67A-UD3P.

I agree, Hyper 212+ is best bang for buck cooler.

Are you doing any kind of gaming? If not, the 5770/GTS450 is overkill. Go with something like a GTS250 (cheaper), 5670, 5570 (cheapest). They're good enough for mild gaming at low res.

I would also get the Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 instead of the XMS3. Same price but runs at 1.5V instead of 1.65V. Actually, I would save $10 and get the G.Skill Ripjaw X DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 1.5V.

Finally, that Antec DF-30 is horrid. I would go for the Cooler Master Haf 912. Not much prettier, but much easier to work with if you're building it yourself.

I'll let others deal with the power supply.

Thank you all for the input, Im ready to order everything, the only problem I am having right now, is acquiring a mobo, for the 1155, im not sure how long its gonna be before the restock, but im not sure if I can wait. Id hate to order first gen, and then a week later im able to get the second gen, but im not sure how much more time i can wait to order anything.

Any suggestions on who has the asus, or gigabye mobo in stock?

Thank You all

John

I would check Micro Center daily if you have one near you. The one closest to me has 3 different P67 boards in stock. Not sure how they would handle internet orders. Can't hurt to call them anyway.
