I was just curious because it sounds like a monstrous build!

And that Dell monitor wow

As far as mobos go, don't get an 'ultimate' one because you will probably find you wouldn't know the difference between a 'good' board after a while

Thanks guys, your being extremely helpful, much appreciated.

I was looking for one of those 'closed loop' water coolers which manage themselves, I thought the corsair Hydro H80 might do it, the reviews didn't seem bad.

Hows the Noctua-D14 taz838? Ill check the reviews, do you know if there noisy?

I'll look into the other makes you mentioned

Thanks again

Arvind!

Hey guys, is it just me, because when I check the reviews and test results of the above cpu coolers, the Corsair H80 O mentioned seems to be getting really good temp results compared to the others like thermaltake, antec, silver arrow (which doesn't seem to have a lga2011 cpu cooler yet), nzxt havik, or the nh-d14. Although the NH-D14 did get good results aswell.

Any suggestions

Thanks

Arvind!

It's up to you mate, but the stock fan(s) on the H80 will be louder than the D-14.

Ah ok, that's good to know. There wasn't much difference between the two in terms of temp, so the NH-D14 sounds like a winner to me then!

The NH-D14 is silent with excellent temps.

Awesome, cheers fellas, OK next question

My budget stretches to one gtx 580 and I was looking for one with 3GB of onboard RAM cos it really helps when working with heavy 3D scenes with lots of textures (which I will be) do you guys have any preference, I've read individual reviews but not sure which is best overall.

The Gainward seems like the best to me, any comments on this:

oh, and Happy Friday!
