How many fans should I get?


Just use the case fans and if you need more get some later.

Also, you should get MX-4 for the TIM.


Why not IX?


You really don't want to use Indigo Xtreme unless you know what you're doing. It's incredibly tricky to apply correctly, and it's metallic so it could short any component it comes in contact with.

Also, here are some cases I like:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007ZOB9MM/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?tag=intercept-kb-20

Which out of these three should I get?


All 3 of those look decent. I like the Corsair the best.

I just prefer MX-4.


You're really a Corsair guy, huh?

Anyway, the IX has the best performance according to my research. I don't know why it's not on pcpartspicker.com.

So you think the Corsair looks the nicest? Or for another reason?


Ya, I like the basic clean looks. The NZXT would be my 2nd choice.

I like the NZXT's window so I'm gonna get that one. Also, the Corsair case price just went up to $100 from $80 suddenly. I'm gonna go with the MX-4, as well.

Anyway, this is my last post for now as I've reached the limit.

These are the fans I'm still deciding between:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005JW3KYC/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?tag=pcpapi-20

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00BEZWPTO/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?tag=pcpapi-20

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B006DKEQV0/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?tag=pcpapi-20

They are all very good, but I don't know which to choose.
#105DrBeePhD(Topic Creator)Posted 8/22/2013 7:13:30 PM
By the way, I know you said I didn't need fans but I might as well have an extra for the future.

This is the final build (without OS): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1vcBf

Now all I need is a keyboard and mouse.

That's…not a very good build for $1200.

Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

Are you kidding me? I spent countless hours on this with all of your help.

This is missing some stuff.

There's really, really no need to worry this much when building a computer. There are hundreds if not thousands of hardware combinations that perform almost exactly the same. It's just a matter of preference and finding the best deals. If you absolutely need to clear your mind, you are going to have to read about PC hardware yourself, or just build one of the suggested rigs and learn about PC's as the time goes on. Either way, you need to chill out >_>
