  1. Hmmmm..I'm almost done building my rig, will check the temps and see how it goes. Thanks wevsspot
  2. Hi All, So I have my GPU's installed in slots 1 and 3 in my Rampage V mobo, I installed my soundcard on slot 4, I just wanted to make sure, will doing that block airflow from the card in slot 3? I can't install it between the GPU's as I have a 240gb Mushkin Scorpion PCI-E SSD installed between them. Thank
  3. I have decided to go for a closed loop instead custom, will be getting a corsair H110 cooler and a 900D case
  4. Thanks for the detailed info Stonerboy 779, I think i'm gonna try onboard sound this time, I'm sure it's gotten much better with these new boards.
  5. Hi all, So I've decided that i'll go with an Asus Rampage V Extreme mobo for my X99 build, will the onboard sound in it be enough for my 5.1 surround system? or should I get a dedicated sound card? and if so which one do you recommend? I currently have a soundblaster x-fi fatality champion card in my current X58 build connected to Logitech Z550 speakers.
  6. If I'm to go for a custom loop liquid cooling for my X99 build what do you guys advise I should go for? It's my first time liquid cooling btw, be it closed or custom looped. I might go for the Corsair 750D case...good choice?
  7. Yep you're right...I just wanted to make sure if it's worth it getting a 1TB SSD drive for gaming.
  8. Alrighty...i'm gonna double check the prices then decide. I'm also getting a Samsung 850 pro 1TB for my gaming drive. You don't need anything crazy for a gaming drive. The benefit of SSD's for game loading is the access time. All the big things like IOPS and Sequential Read/Write doesn't do anything to speed up game load times. So, it's not worth it?? Hmmm...a 2TB WD Caviar Black is good enough for gaming?

  10. Hi all, If i'm to choose an SSD for my OS drive and had to choose between the Samung 840 Pro Evo 256GB or an Intel 730 series SSD? Which one is better??
  11. Cool let me know when it's ready...thanks
  12. @El_Capitan Thanks for your input. I guess i'll stick with the PSU then since I never had any power problems with it. As for the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate, i'll take a look at it and read some reviews and see the fan options. Any more input is more than welcome...cheers
  13. Hi all, So finally after 5 years of waiting from my current X58 build i'm having a major upgrade and i'm pretty excited !!!! I would like to have advice on which closed loop liquid cooling option I should go for, bear in mind that I prefer to have my case quiet, so some quiet fan options and whatever would be nice. I'm also still not sure about the Rampage V Extreme as I might change it for the Asus X99 Deluxe, keep in mind that i'll be using a dedicated sound card and 2x GTX 980's in SLI. The case is also subject to change. My budget is from $5000 to $5500 Chasis: Corsair 750D (moving from current HAF-X) Motherboard: Asus Rampage V Extreme CPU:Intel Haswell-E 5930k Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (4x4GB) DDR4 2666hz C15 Memory Kit Graphics Card: 2x EVGA GTX 980
  14. LOL No worries buddy...it's all good Thanks for the advice..i'll do as suggested and report back.
