Got his cooler sorted Hes having my old Freezer, free of course
Good to see fellow TPUers helping each other out.
um n00bish mistake its a corsair 400w, and i chose it to go with the budget he had, although i was going to pick the stealthxtreme and then wait for everyone to shout corsair at me haha
well done mate i did offer him my unused stock e7200 cooler for free but thats even better
Read the quote above yours. That is done with a Corsair HX620. I know what I'm talking about. n00b? Yes, the Corsair 400w is a fine PSU indeed, and sure it may handle a bit over 400w, but it's deffinitely not going to be enough.
i wasnt calling you a n00b or say u didnt know what you were talking about, you got me in the wrong context totally
just stating it was a n00bish mistake mistaking the corsair for a coolermaser, but yes i didnt see wasleys coolermaster link above you were actually referring to so i was a bit hessitant or n00bish soome might say haha so my bad we all skim read now n again and jump to conclusions lol
however the corsair would power a e7300 and one hd 4850 with ease any day of the week.
Not a problem bud! And to be honest, if I never hooked my system up to an AmWatt (basically a Kill A Watt), I would of thunk the 400W Corsiar to work fine. The highest amount of wattage I've pulled out of the rig has been 467 watts with Ocing the card to 675/1050 and a modest 3.4ghz on the E7200. If I'm not mistaken the cx400 is capable of around 490 Watts of peak power which would still work, though I'd be held back to overclock any more. I love corsair's psu's, if my HX620 had two more pci-e connectors it could run my 4870 crossfire system no problem!
Right - Ordering in 10 minutes. So - if theres anything needed changing quickly jump at me. Just gotta finish making the bacon sandwich
Here's my order:
looks good mate, happy days
so you decided to go with the seagate over the wd, any reason ?
Cheaper and I won't be needing 640Gb. I know its not alot more money, but i'm trying to save money. My budget was £300 and i've managed to spend £400 with case & CPU.
ok np, the newer seagates are fast anyway, its a good drive .
but thats what budgets are for, so they can be blown to shit when you actually decide to stick to one

WOOOOT - How long did it take me to decide on a PC, get the money and buy it? Couple of months ?!
at least, even women arent that picky when it comes to shopping
You can get this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136178 o.o ur not in us. I try to get you a link.
congrats on purchase ,it should do you very well a very good upgrade for the price imo.
are you planning on overclocking? id be interested to see what you think of the MSI board.
Yes - but in the future. I don't want to half the life of the CPU.
Okay - I gave in. I changed it to next day delivery. Its coming tommorow
as long as you're sensible it won't 'halve', but ofc it won't last as long as it would otherwise.
I doubt you'd be using this in 10 years though, so y'know, not so relevant..
im guessing the life expectancy of most chips is 3 years with overclocking, but i doubt anyone on here (Im talking enthusiast level) will keep a processor for more than a year or so anyway
Ahhh - Well, I'm not sure If I will be or not. I usally start overclocking when my system starts to lack power for games.
Parts Arrived. Whey - Well. Not all of them.
I'm still awaiting the:
Case (Havent a clue when thats coming)
CPU (Mum was out whislt it was posted. I have to go to the checkpoint to collect it )
give the case a couple of days, i have already told you that
Congrats Wasley! Did you take my advice from yesterday?
No offense but whats a checkpoint?
Checkpoints like the deliveries head quarters - say fedex came to your house with a package, but you werent in, they take it back to their checkpoint to be collected later
Ahh I see! SO. . . it's right now on hold at the post basically. C.mon case, get to wasley! I wish I was there with a camcorder on your first post.
haha you and me both - the case was sent last night, so im guessing the latest it will arrive is saturday.
Pretty awesome build for a first rig!
