New gaming build.

Hey there guys,

So it's been a while since i've built a pc and recently my brother asked me to help him choose components and assemble it for him. Basically i'm just looking for some opinions on the components i've selected and i'm wondering if there are any glaring oversights.


CPU: i5 3570k
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100 with Cougar Vortex fans
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 Overclocked 2GB
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
PSU: Antec HCG 620W Modular
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-222BB SATA DVDRW Drive
Case: NZXT Tempest 410 Elite
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1
SSD: SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive 120GB
2 BitFenix Alchemy Connect 30cm Blue LED Strips. One for the top and bottom of the case.


Any opinions would be much appreciated. It seems like a reasonably solid build to me, but better to be safe than sorry.

This is not really a project log is it? This should be in the new build advice section.
OT:
Get an Corsair AX650 or an HX650 (V2).
If you have the money, get a better case, like the Phantom 410 by NZXT.
You might want to get new fans for the H100, like the corsair SP120mm fans.
Other than that good choice of components

I had a quick look and must have missed the new build advice section sorry. If someone could move the thread it'd be much appreciated.

In response to the H100 fans tho are the Cougar Vortex's a bad choice? Most reviews/etc i've read people seemed to like them.

Agree with AverageNinja - go for the Corsair power supply.

It's up to you on the fans - The Vortex's arent bad, but the Corsair SPs, Silverstone APs, Noctua NF-F12s and Scythe GTs will probably be better

The Antec power supply is a Seasonic made psu as is the hx650 and ax series.

Go with which ever is cheaper.

The Corsair units are gold rated, and Corsair have a far better product support than Antec. Plus the Corsair units look far nicer

Actually the HX V2 series is a CWT OEM, and the AX and Antec HCG are based off of two different platforms. The Antec is basically a Seasonic M12II-620 with extremely minor changes to the PCB, while the AX is closely related to Seasonic's 80 Plus Gold rated units (whatever their product names are)

Yeh that is correct however the original hx650 is seasonic.

I wouldnt touch that. Samsung 830 or M4 for me.
