    What wrong with the PSU ? I currently have GX600 and ive read it somewhere that the GS > GX. Plus the GS comes with white/red/blue led light :p

    And the SSD i currently have is Plextor 128GB - Sequential Read Speed - Up to 520 MB/s
    Sequential Write Speed - Up to 200 MB/s the one im getting is Read Speed: 490MB/Sec, Write Speed: 350MB/Sec and cheaper so sort of the same...

    To irony which ASrock have you go? the Fatal1ty 990FX Professional ? or ? and where did you get it from? Im also having doubts about Sabertooth and heading towards the Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z especially if im going to have such a huge see through side panel + has more 2 more fans connects :p

    I need to pick out some decent fans soon too prerably blue led, not loud ones

    Build looks great, but pick a different 7950. I dont like the heat control on the HIS models.
    Also, dont get that SSD, get a samsung 840 basic. My brother had a Sandisk Extreme, the read/write speeds are blatant lies and arent actual real world use figures. The samsung performs far better.
    PSU is fine, if you're getting a blue LED light on the PSU, and have blue RAM, and you're getting blue fans, I recommend you buy the MSI GD65 990FX for a blue colour scheme. My GD65 overclocks very well.

    Coolermaster Sickleflow Blue LED fans are silent, cheap and rather nice looking.

    I might just go for the Crosshair V Formula-Z to be honest and i havent decided on the theme color yet but it will either be red or blue but i doubt i would pick a motherboard based on color.

    If i go red: Crosshair V Forumala-z would fit it best
    Blue: MSI 990FXA-GD80 AMD 990 FX

    Is the MSI anywhere new the Crosshair level probably not? Im trying to build a pc that i wont have to touch the case/motherboard/gpu/psu/cpu for a while, hdd/sdd/ram/fans/cooling system and the rest i can replace for better later

    The MSI boards are good. Really good. The components are high quality and the featureset is pretty rich, when it comes to high end boards you pay for tiny extras, like the PLX chip in the Crosshair for Trifire. There are lots of people who bought the new GD65 gaming board for intel because its such a good board, even Dave has one, our motherboard reviewer.
    The GD80 supports Trifire, the GD65 is just Crossfire.

    When you hit the £150+ market for Mobos, you should start thinking about colour TBH. Especially when 3+ GPU's is out of your requirements.

    shame on me :laugh:

    rcoon backed me up with samsung 840. im not a fan of the corsair GS, when i was researching and buying a new psu i was advised against it. non modular, bronze cert. and their lowest range. and 58a on the 12v+ rail

    trust me when building a rig, modular is godly!

    I'm tempted to buy an 8350 and an ASRock all black MoBo to replace my i5, for the sake of overclocking fun-times.

    it's a bad overclocker by every 3570k standard on the interwebs, id probably use it for a side build in future anyway on stock settings.

SO they said we will collect it for you and do some testing which can take 5 days ¬¬

    Under full load yes. Under world of warcraft nope, wow is more cpu than gpu. I cant even have wow + some youtube videos on... just goes slow.. im make sure i write a nice note to them, ive only had it for 1 week i shoul be entitled to a refund regardless if they find a fault or not

    my msi 7770 same settings as the vtx3d is at 45-55 tops

    The 7770 and 7870xt are very different cards. My 7950s run about as hot in various games. This isnt a midrange card anymore...

    I'd advise 750w minimum.

    i was planning on 1st getting 600w but now went for 700W do u think that would be enough? id never run more than 2 graphics card and to be honest i doubt ill ever get a 2nd, considering the games i play, i just wanna make sure what i would get would be enough if i ever would need a 2nd one.

    On an intel system with two cards not overclocked I'd say 650w. With overclocks, I'd recommend 750w. If it's an AMD system, probably 800w. I prefer to keep a fair distance away from fully loading a PSU.
