Its a good list aside from the PSU.

The Corsair VS series is more meant for productivity PCs with lower power consumption and I would recommend a higher quality model over this one.

As for the rest of the parts, everything looks fine to me.

I agree. I used to live in an area where power from the line fluctuated heavily because of other users around me. My PSU was not that good and instead of filtering the spikes, it exploded... Most of the components of my PC were fried.

I would go for this one if you want to remain on the inexpensive side, but also don't want a ticking bomb:

Thank u the EVGA ones r costly in india

Can I go with a corsair CX 500? Does it have a 240v input version?

Or the ante vp500pc ? It's just around 3k

I also wanna say that my old core 2 duo rig has a zebrotronics power supply (430w) and it ran my computer for about 3days continuously (downloading movies) (about 20 - 30 CPU load) and it has never failed on me.

And any thing about the zotac mini gtx 1060 3gb ? As far as performance the 3gb type is OK but is the zotac one run cool? I seen one review that it failed in 30mins (@ new egg)

Thank you

Is it possible to fit a cooler Master hyper 212x in this spec 01?

If not wat tower style cooler will be best ?

Tho my chip is a locked one I want a fairly decent tower style air cooler so just to make the temps better

The CX500 as universal input so no problem there if can get it for 6k or less: http://www.corsair.com/en/builder-series-cx500

For the Antec, here is a read: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/72989-is-the-antec-vp500pc-any-good/

As for you zebrotronic, 3 days on load is not a very good test. You would need to take multiple units over years to know if the model was any good. It is all about probability. A good PSU does not increase performance. A good PSU is reliable.

The 1060 3Gb is not really a 1060. Not a bad card I would say, but just not the same as the first model. Expect this: http://www.pcworld.com/article/3114719/components-graphics/evga-gtx-1060-3gb-review-a-compelling-200-graphics-card-with-a-questionable-future.html

The Evo is a great cooler at 159mm high, but the spec-01 only accepts up to 150mm. I would suggest this cooler if you don't want to change the case: http://in.pcpartpicker.com/product/FNXfrH/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rrht228pkr1

I know spending a lot of money can be stressful, but try to remain calm. Your buying experience will be improved and you will make better choices.

Be mindful that we don't live all in the same time zone. For example, I am in Canada and when you replied it was just passed midnight here and the rest of the North American east coast.

Have a nice day

Thanks I will try to get the cx500

The zebrotronics psu did very well (5 times about 2-3 days run.)

So wat kinda temps can I expect with the cooler u recommended

Edit: I will also try to get the EVGA 1060 3gb

Update: the CX 500 is http://mdcomputers.in/index.php?route=product/product&path=68&product_id=224&sort=p.price&order=ASC

And the cx430 is about 3k while the cx500 is about 4.2k. Well Mdcomputers has a much lesser price in all of the stuff (considering Amazon)

And it should be similar to wat I can get at Mount road (Richie street) a awesome place to get electronics for cheap @ Chennai

(The corsair spec 01 is 6-7k @ Amazon while it is only about 3k @ mdcomputers so hope I can bargain it for 2.5k)

:D

Temp: It depends on the use and since it is a little older and on the cheap side, I couldn't find someone who paired it with a skylake cpu. I would expect 70-75 for full load sustained, but that is just my wild guess.

Humm well the spec 02 will fit the 212x right?

Well I still like the way spec 01 looks vs the spec 02.....

So will it be better than the stock cooler?

The spec 02 will not fit the 212. It has a 157mm max height
