New Build Advice

Recommended Posts

As per my sig this is my proposed new build.

I'm seeking advice about the choices.

 

Is the Zalman 9500 OK? I've seen no review here of it.

Ram OK? Mild OCing?

4400+ Toledo OC well?

PSU OK? Or should I use the OCZ?

Any other suggestions more than welcome & sought.

 

Thanks.

I presently use the Zalman 7000 on an Intel platform. It's by far the best I have ever used, although quite heavy. Google has given me some reviews on the 9500 but nothing from a real time user. So far it's my choice for cooler but would like some more info from actual users. The alternative is the SI 120 but I like the way the Zalman exhausts out the back into the case fan in my Lian Li.

Sorry about the PSU. It's a PC Power & Cooling Turbo Cool 510 ASL.

Excellent Choice. The best PSU hands down. The PSU that you have also has an 8pin connector for the Expert board

Hi farris,

 

I went with the Zalman CNPS9500 LED Cooler because I liked it`s unique design...lol. Plus it cools about as good as my sons SI-120 w/120mm fan on top.

Since we both run the same board, I would say the SI-120 is better, because the air flows over the board shaving a few degrees off of it as well. The xp90 seems to be the all around favorite on this board.

 

You will love the ram, I just got mine in and it runs great!

 

If you decide to go with the OCZ 520ADJSLI PowerStream make sure it will fit in that case. The OCZ is a little longer than normal, and could have trouble clearing the top case fan.....ask me how I know ;)
