Please review my build before i place the order


Sep 5, 2012
Hey guys, I've been on this forum a few times in the past day, and I was wondering if you guys could review my build real fast for compatibility before i place it.

My main concern is with the PSU and motherboard...I'll explain later.

PSU: tx650 ( ATXv2.31)

CPU: core i5 3570k

Mobo: Asrock z77 extreme 4---$109

RAM: G.skill Ripjaws X Series 16gb (4 X 4gb) 240-pin Ddr3 Sdram Ddr3 1600 (Pc3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800cl9q-16gbxl----- $95

Tower case: Corsair Carbide Series White 500R Mid Tower Computer Case (CC-9011013-WW)- 117$

OS: Windows 7 home premium: 91$

GPU: Probably a radeon 7870

Optical drive: Haven't gotten one yet.

So, my trouble here is my PSU. Will that PSU from amazon work well with my setup?

Some people say that I should buy the tx650v2 version, but I really need to build my computer before Saturday and i have a free 1 day shipping from amazon.

Will the PSU that i linked you guys work well with the mobo/ram?

Also, can you guys please explain what it means when the PSU says that it's ATX v2.31? If the psu is ATXv2.2 will it still work on my z77 mobo?

Your build looks ok. I would rather get a Gigabyte, MSI, or ASUS MB over an Asrock. The power supply should be ok, I built one for a guy with a similar model (not sure if it's exactly the same), the weird thing was the fan NEVER came on except at startup, but the PSU never got hot.
