If your gaming your wasting a 2600k, theres no need for it 2500K runs the same
If your not going SLI 359 for a tri sli board is a waste

IMO Its a good system, but i think you just bought the best just because you could. Because if you really knew what you were buying then you wouldn't be asking.


can the nzxt phantom even fit the h100? also how high are you going to overclock the 2600k? is this build for gaming? if so the 2500k is the best gaming cpu on the market. the 2600k gives no performance boost over the 2500k in games. what resolution whill you be playing at?

you shouldve asked for advice before you bought. im sure you couldve gotten 2 6970's for that price and a 120gb ssd.


I would have used the $100 you spent on the i7 2600k compared to the i5 2500k (no real gaming difference) and bought a Crucial M4 128GB ssd @ $220.

I don't trust corsair to make ssds and I don't trust coolermaster to make psus unless its a very specific model that has had nothing but good reviews.

$200 that you spend on the mobo could have gone to a 590 >_<
the silent pro series are good psu's. i trust corsair because of their warranties and unbeatable customer service
