You should probably get a ssd too for the operating system, like 120gb. Other than that, all good.

h10i would be fine but the cheapest water cooler available looks pretty good. also a power supply. corsair rm 850. EVGA 220-G2-0850-XR and a corsair ax series maybe, https://community.newegg.com/eggxpert/computer_hardware/f/135081/t/45344.aspx

Yes, it looks good. Whether it is overkill or not would probably be the question. What are you using it for?

I would agree with changing the psu too btw.

Edit: I would recommend the EVGA 750G2($99.99) or the Corsair RM750($89.99) over the CX or CS Series. I believe the EVGA is the better of these 2.

For videos and gaming :)

Video Editing or just watching? For gaming the i7 and the 16GB of ram will be overkill. For gaming a i5 4690K will be good, unless you just have extra room in your budget for the i7, in which case I say go for it. 8gb of ram is more than enough for gaming. If you're editing, the i7 and 16gb of ram will benefit you. If you're not dead set on a liquid cooler, I would say look at some of the high end air coolers like the Noctua u14s, and phanteks tc14pe (both of them usually stay in the $60-$75 range). They won't get quite as cool as a good watercooler but they'll be quieter and I can give you a 100% guarantee they will never spring a leak lol.

Is not better a liquid cooler than a Air cooler? And yeah is for Video editing an gaming :)

Liquid will keep you cpu cooler. It's not always a huge difference though. Heres some benchmark links. It's up to you to decide if the price diffence is worth the temp difference and noise difference. There is also the risk of a leak, which don't get me wrong is very low with a quality cooler. My biggest issue with them is if an air cooler fails, it's probably just gonna need another fan. With a liquid cooler there are more parts that could fail. This is just my opinion.

use up the rest of you case fan mounts if you plan running 2400mhz ram and is that a refrence 780ti then your deff gonna want to get fans to blow on that cpu cooler like the h 80 i would suffice for the processor if you wanna save some money heard bad things bout cx series their kind budget components and you really do get what you pay for few minor tweaks just for heat efficiency and longevity but your build looks good

looks like a solid editing rig but the price budget could be maximized if you were going for straight gaming either way you have good parts in your build solid work

But my question is it will work?

  • 70 months ago

no it wont because you have a z87 mother board and the i7 4690k needs a z97 motherboard to run

if your using the 4670k then yes your all set
