#1943493 Gaming Rig - 1920x1080

The Antec and Corsair (and CoolIT, but they're not selling to the public anymore) "liquid" cooling systems are closed-loop. That means all you have to do is mount the CPU block, mount the radiator and fan(s), and you're done. Same effort as a typical air cooler. No maintenance, and they're under warranty.

Please avoid that video card if you're planning on going SLI in the future. All of those Asus DC cards take up 3 slots, and your motherboard only has two slots between your first two PCIe slots. This means if/when you add a second card, the first card will be completely suffocated and temps will be MUCH worse. It will still be bad with a 1 slot gap, but it's MUCH WORSE with one card sitting directly on top of another.

#1933622 What is the scariest game you've played??

When I was little, Alone in the Dark scared the piss out of me. After that, Silent Hill and Resident Evil were pretty scary. Doom 3 was pretty good... F.E.A.R. was good too, but I think Silent Hill takes #1 for me.

I vote no. Increasing frequency still raises the power consumption even if the voltage is left stock. ALL DIY builds should be set at stock unless requested otherwise.
