As far as your fans go, you're fine. The 200mm front fan has a lot of intake air-flow. More than the 140mm exhaust fan, which creates postive air-pressure. Positive air pressure helps against dust build-up and is slightly better in cooling your PC as opposed to static or negative air-pressure.

I second this build with the except with the RAM. Using two 4 gig sticks is very bad value. You can get a single 8gb stick for the same price. Later another 8gb stick can be acquired.

No, they generally make good ones. The NEX is just one of their bad PSUs. The SuperNOVA G2 and P2 are the best PSUs on the market.

A few things: you could get a better AIO. The H115i.

A better PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 (not the NEX)

Swap out that HDD for something like Seagate. It's cheaper and offers similar performance.

The link is broken. High-end water coolers are good, but the lower end ones, like 120mm radiator ones. The best Air-cooler you can get is the Scythe FUMA, which will cool your PC very well. I would personally advise using the Scythe FUMA as your cooler.

Yes, but then there's proven performance. I am more privvy to air coolers, though. The Scythe FUMA is better than the 120mm AIOs out there. But, the 120mm do "good enough" but have terrible price-to-performance. But, if you're willing to spend it, and it makes you happy, then do it!

I am going for the MasterCase Maker 5t, a 250$. It's worth it to me even though a 70$ case would more than suit my needs.

You can just get cheap dongle for now. They do well enough.

There is no performance gain when loading games from an SSD. All it will do is decrease load times over an HDD.

This is great. Good to see these old dinosaurs getting some love.

I wouldn't have gone with that cooler. 120mm AIOs are bad for their price. The Scythe FUMA would've outperformed it, and from the looks of the case, it probably would've fit.

Oh well. Other than that cooler, it's a very solid build. +1

Well, you did try to SLI two cards that can't SLI. In fact, it probably wasn't even that. It's like some other hardware that blew.

The SuperNOVA is the best PSU you can currently buy on the market. It's extremely well built. It scored a 10/10 at Jonnyguru.com, a site dedicated to testing PSUs.

The Scythe FUMA is the best cooler you can probably get. it outclasses even some 240mm Water coolers, and it's only 50$. get at least a 120gb SSD for booting. Put your OS and web-browser, and maybe a game or two. The HDD can be used for everything else. Later down the line, you can get more SSDs. The reason you should get an SSD now is because it's a huge pain to transfer your OS from an HDD to an SSD.
