update case/PSU/CPU-cooler

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I’m new here from today and have a few questions for you. It could be that I posted this topic in the wrong area but it has to do with PSU as well with CPU-cooling…

So I need a new case through upgrading my motherboard, CPU and RAM a few months ago (case is to small and old => bad airflow). I already decided which case it will be, a corsair 600T (good cable management, airflow and looks).

Now here come the real questions: I need a new power supply because the one I have, has a pin to few to properly supply my motherboard (have only a 4-pin ATX 12V and need a 8-pin ATX 12V).
Now I was thinking of going modular due having less cables.

First question
I'm not sure which one or how heavy my PSU needs to be. So please give me some input.

Second question
I also want another CPU cooler... like the H50 or H70 from corsair... My problem is that I want to have the best, but that is not always in my budget or necessary. Maybe you can tell me which cooler I should get...

Greetz Jaip.

With the setup in your sig you won`t need that much power.
Maybe for future upgrades on get a 600W PSU but for you rig atm this would be a overkill.
For the brand of the PSU please check this sticky:
http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...-supplies.html
If you get one of those listed there you should be good to go!
For the CPU cooler: What is your budget?
If you can afford it get the H70.
Or a nice Noctua. (Yes a bit fanboyism is involved )

Thx for replying Mr.Eiht and Rabbs...

@Mr.Eiht (and also Rabbs): Is the Noctua better than an H50? Which has the best price/preformance?

@Rabbs: can you tell me why I need 650W? Because Mr.Eiht says that 600 is enough if I will upgrade later and if not so, then less is also good...

Againg thank you guys!!

A good 600W PSU will be enough if your going to stay on single graphic card solutions.
Since your in belgium you can also look at the BeQuiet Darkpower Pro p7 series. those are very good but hard to get outside the benelux and germany.
Other good PSU's are on the list Mr.Eiht gave you.
something like a OCZ ModXtream Pro 600W is kinda good becuase its only 64,- euro. offcourse a seasonic 600W is better but will cost alot more.

Good price/performance cpu cooler is a Scythe Mugen2. i had my i7-860 clocked to 4209mhz with it. it cools only 3-4 degrees less then my megehalems.

other good cpu coolers are:
Noctua NH-D14
Thermal right silver arrow
Less then above but still good a Corsair H70

Btw I would really suggest a modular PSU instead of the Corsair TX one, so much easier to make it look clean and less messy.

Yeah I know, that was my plan , thx!

And for the PSU it is clear I need a 600W ?!
I was looking at the OCZ ModXtream, 600 => low cost , but this PSU is "worse" then like a BeQuiet or seasonic?! Because it will break down 'faster'? or are the outputs not as stable? (sorry for the many questions, I want to be sure before I buy something)

@Farih: Probably I will buy in the Netherlands, the case is there at least, 20 € cheaper.

For the cooler, I leave my Mugen 2 on it, atm not happy with it but my case is crappy so, this will cool better in my new case (also I can decide later if I upgrade it or not to another cooler.)

Farih, you got a OC of 4.2Ghz, probably with Push-Pull? (not sure which fan I have on my cooler now, will check it tonight) But is a stock cooler good enough? Or should I get others (and will the stock cooler of the corsair 600T will be enough when mounted on the case, or do I really need to put a second on the Mugen2?)
And as last question, what are your temps at that OC or at a lower OC?! Thx in advance!

And thx to everybody else who gave their opinion!! really appreciate it!

Cooler really depends on what you need and CAN install.
What case and ram are you using?

That mugen will cool about 2-4 degrees better in push-pull
Gentle typhoons 1800rpm are very nice fans. going from stock fan to 2 gentle typhoons 1800rpm is a good boost in cooling.

Most times i always exchange the stock coolers, in alot of cases there just not that good. depends on the case though, there are some that do come with good ones, dont know about the 600T though
exchanged my fans for 6x120mm 1450rpm gentle typhoons and 2x140mm ones @ 1000rpm. dit help alot to increase cooling on this case.
