MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H Socket 1155
CPU:Intel Core i7 3570K 3.5GHz Socket 1155
COOLER:Corsair H60 OR Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (which one fits)
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 680 OC Windforce
RAM:2 Corsair 4GB ddr3 1600Mhz Blue (i pick this so it would match the colour scheme of my motherboard)
HDD:Seagate 1TB Barracuda
PSU:NZXT hale82 750W 80 plus bronze
OPTICAL DRIVE:Sony DRU-880S 24X DVD-RW drive
CASE:NZXT Lexa S

my biggest concern is will the graphics card fit in the case??
 
Hello HanzMohd;

The 285mm / 11.22" Gigabyte GTX 680 OC Windforce graphics card does not look like it will fit in the NZXT Lexa S case.
Looks like 10.5" (maybe 11") graphics cards are the biggest that will fit.

Everything else will fit.

Thats a shame, i was really hoping it would fit...
i really like the case coz it has a side window and the colour scheme fits perfectly..
Its there any other cheap case with a side window and same price range?
Btw thanks for the recommendation on the corsair case, would go for that case if i dont find any other case...
 
Does the MoBo do SLI ? .... Newegg lists "PCI Express 3.0 x16 - 3 (x16, x8, x4)". Usually ya see something like PCI Express 3.0 x16 - 2 (x16/0 or x8/x8)" where it clearly states the x8/x8 SLI bandwidth.

I don't recommend the IB CPUs where any significant overclocking is desired.

The H60 and Evo are not up to par with the mid range coolers.....

Mid Range - Hyper 612 PWM or Scythe Mugen 3

Hi Range - Thermalright Silver Arrow or Phanteks

750 watt PSU is a bit tight if you plan on OC'ing ya CPU on top of factory OC;d GFX cards....nvidia lists 550 + 195 for the reference cards. Id go with the 850.

The Corsair 500R fits cards up to 316 mm (12.44") in length.....452 (17.8") w/ HD cage removed.
