Need Compatability Check and A Bit of Hardware Advice


Aug 6, 2011

I don't know if all the slots are compatible so I need a motherboard that can hold all of them. Can you guys please tell me if it will all fit in the Antec Fusion Remote MAX.


Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance $89.00
Intel Core i5 2500K $215.00
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD $359.00
Antec Fusion Remote MAX $225.00
ASUS Xonar HDAV1.3 $185.00
Avermedia AVerTV CaptureHD Dual Hybrid PCIE $109.00
Western Digital Green 3TB WD30EZRX $189.00
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD 2.5" $129.00
Corsair TX-650 V2 Power Supply $115.00
Samsung SH-B123A 12X Blu-ray DVD Combo Drive $89.00
ASUS P8Z68-DELUXE Motherboard $325.00

Sub-Total: $2029.00

Also, which motherboard is overall better in features, performance, reliability, etc.

ASUS P8Z68-DELUXE Motherboard-
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Motherboard -
ASRock Z68 Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 -

All around the same price, so price is definitely not an issue in this one. So out of these three, no other recommendations please

Also, I know this is the wrong place to post this, but I have heard that the Corsair PSU I chose may be a bit loud. Does anyway have any recommendations for a reliable, good quality and quiet PSU?

Thanks A Lot!

I would go with Silverstone PSU's they are solid, Quiet and they have a short cable set available.
Silverstone short cable set:
SILVERSTONE ST75F-P 750W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
SILVERSTONE ST60F-P 600W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

you have to remove the divider section of the central HDD chamber to fit the EVGA 570 (its 10.5 inches long)

I vote for the Gigabyte MB
