Ehhh it should be but why don't you ask in the PSU section to be sure, more knowledgeable PSU people will see it there.

Might be a good idea. I've since fallen in love with the RV03 btw

You can get better temps with a Noctua NH-D14 or Silver Arrow. If you don't have enough room, get a Megahalem or Venomous X. The H70 is only okay.

A70 not H70 but yes the D14 is my favorite aircooler if you can afford it. the H60 is also on sale at newegg for 55 AR right now too which wouldn't be bad either.

Is the DH14 going to be that much more noticable in cooling?

Hey OP, might want to keep your most updated configuration in the first post, so ppl don't have to look all over the thread for it and make redundant suggestions.

So usually builds don't last for 5 years, unless it is epic to begin with (think SR-2, SSD raid, and 4x SLI/XFire). I'd say aim for a 3yr build and save some money instead.

With that said, the mobo's a good one, and CPU's great. Although if you can wait until Ivy Bridge, do that. 3D transistors are supposed to be amazing. 37% increase in performance, or 50% decrease in power consumption, would be worth the wait I'd say.

Most of the things look good. I'd invest in a SSD boot drive if you can afford it. Go with 80gb or more, 120gb ideally. Space runs out quicker than you think

Also, decide on a good case. I'd recommend Silverstone's RV-02 or FT-02, great cases for air cooling and noise reduction. A lot of people skimp on cases, but a great one will keep your hardware cool, keep the noise level down, and not limit you in terms of future upgrades. Also a thoughtfully made case will make the computer building experience much better and your rig's inside will be that much cleaner.

As for the PSU, go with the HX 850 for modular cables. Always get modular PSUs, it makes cable management sooo much easier. Definitely worth the extra price.

Finally, the cooler. Grab the H70 and slap a pair of Gentle Typhoons on it. Either that or go with the Noctua NH-D14. Those are as good as you'll get before going water. I'd prefer the Corsair because it won't block any RAM modules, and make the inside of the case look that much cleaner.

So your build will look something like this:

Motherboard: Asus P8P67 PRO B3 (nice rounded mobo)
Processor: i7 2600K (either this or i5 2500K, if you don't need the HT)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H70 (or NH-D14 if you prefer, but this won't block any RAM modules)
CPU Fan: 2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (or AP-14 if you value silence over noise, maybe 3-4C difference)
Video Card: GTX 580 (go w/ the MSI Lightning version, best one out of the bunch)
RAM: 2x 4gb DDR3 12800 (brand doesn't really matter as long as you stick w/ a major manufacturer)
Power Supply: Corsair HX 850W (or go with Seasonic's X-850 if you can afford it, best 850w PSU out there)
Hard Drive: Samsung Spintpoint F3 1tb (cheaper than WD's, and performs very well due to 2 platters, I have 3 myself)
SSD: Go with a nice Sandforce drive like the Vertex II. Intels are the most reliable, but Sandforce performs better, it's your call. Go with a 120gb if you can, or 80gb at least)
Case: CoolerMaster HAF X or Silverstone FT-02. Either one should be around $200, and both will provide excellent air cooling. FT-02 will be quieter and classier looking (my pick), HAF-X will cool slightly better and is bigger, you choice.

Don't worry Ebola I already made him see the wonder that is the RV03, that's what he's gonna be getting.

OP the D-14 will be a noticeable difference in terms of temperatures but I think the best value right now for you would be the corsair H60 for $55 after rebate, the D14 would be a little better but is usually $90 or $80 on sale. With the H60 you would want to put it on the inside (closest to your motherboard rather than at the front front of the case, you should understand when you see the case or I suppose I could post a pic if you need) of one of the fans mounts in the front of the case so that it would be in taking cold air.

EDIT: crap forgot you live in "other parts of the world' here is the Newegg.ca link but unfortunately its OOS currently, still appears to be a good deal so sign up to be notified when it comes in stock and watch it manually as well because their notifications take forever.

Here they are at the place I'm planning on buying from. Only $74.00 for the H60. They don't stock the DH14 though

He means edit the first post with the most up to date information incase people don't even read past the 4th post.

I don't know if the H60 would be a good idea at 74 because the D14 is better and can be found readily at 90 USD online, why don't you search around online for better prices on the H60 or somebody that carries the D14
