What changes should I make to my rig?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It's the sig rig. One top 120mm fan, one on the bottom for the GPU (although it barely hits the 460 as I used it for my previous 6950) and one on the front. The PSU wiring is incredibly annoying as I can barely fit in my case. Should I do more overclocking to the CPU and GPU? I don't use the desktop often but I'd like to have a nice little clean toy.

All tips are well accepted!

I would change 4 things.
1) 60gb - 120gb SSD for the main OS, programs and some games(if you play games)
2) Better memory or oc them. Most G.Skill Rip are 9-9-9-24 and most can oc to 7-8-7-24 easy with a little voltage bump.
3) Bigger case for a better cpu cooler.
4) Better cpu cooler or go water cooling system. If you like to show off your computer a water system will better to show off.

That looks pretty good. I think the Blitz can at least fit Hyper 212+ and other good coolers, it's a great case for the price. An SSD would be a great addition if you fancy totally lagless and speedy computing for a price premium.

I concur, 212+ should fit

Depending on what you have to spend, an SSD would probably speed you up quite a bit. If you wanna get another cooler, I'd say go for the 212+ or the Xigmatek Dark Knight. They get almost the exact same temps, but i set up Push/Pull on mine for an 5 dollar case fan and 8 small zip ties and saw a pretty big improvement. I've never heard of doing this with the 212+ but im sure you could seeing as they're pretty much the exact same design.
