Hey guys, first post here long time stalker.
Took me around a month from initial research to boot up for this build. The computer i'm replacing is 5years old so this is a huge upgrade for me.
CPU : Decided to switch CPU from AMD to Intel with the new Haswell. Even if my old 965BE been good to me im not really impressed with the new 8350. I did read about overclocking heat problems and not being stable but i didnt really see the point of overclocking the cpu. Right now im using the AI Tweakker XMP profile @3.9 and everything is perfect.
Cooling : After the CPU everything followed fairly easy. People were saying you could barely fit the Swiftech h220 top rad on the Fractal Design so i decided to go for Corsair H100i (which is pretty solid after my first night of Prime95 Bleed test highest temp on HWMonitor is 66C). The 3 Corsair AF were simply for black and white theme :D
Motherboard : The look ! I was gonna go for the pro but didnt really care about the 40$ at that point.
Memory : Black Theme. With the XMP profile they are running at 2133Mhz without any problem.
GPU : I wanted those 4 games ! :D Money-Performance wise this is a great card.
Case : This case is awesome.
Storage : 2 OCZ Vertex 4 are set on Raid 0. AS SSD got a reading of 861-911. WD Black 2T for fraps and media. I'm also using a NAS for my HTPC. Nas : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/lef013/saved/1Wa8 HTPC : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/lef013/saved/1TaD
This is pretty much it. I installed OS last night did the update ran Prime 95 and HWMonitor during the night to wake up this morning without any failure and steady temps. HURRAY!
