i tried it before, you know what, the cpu temp run as 70-73 degree when i play bf4, the cpu clock cycle will be slowing down to low the wattage which reduce the heat. In the another word, cpu will be slowing down. lower perfomace.

the cooler master fan can bring enough air to the gpu. I did the test. it helps my gpu under 80 degree. the cpu usage will be around 97-98%, the gpu clock speed always on the max.

For the AIO cooler, you should take air into the case. try to mount on the top of your case.

I used Coolmaster high RPM fan, it just like hyper evo 212's fan. but it won't work. so replace with AIO cooler.

My CPU can reach to 60+ degree when I play game. whole system will shut off with 60 seconds. I replace air cooling solution by exchange the cooler with my another build.

6 cores i7 is awesome, but too expensive . just wait price cut. I am not a gamer. I wanna use this PC for 5-10yrs periods. working purpose. I am truly believe 6 or 8 cores will be main stream CPU. So I can swap my current CPU for better CPU.

but it is quiet. I went to bestbuy, they have sample of evga 600w same model, I check detail about that, it didn't show that is quiet PSU. but I read Corsair 750W, it shows noise will low as 18bd before reach to 60% power supply. I also check that old PSU. it got auto thermo control fan, but it won't work at all. always full speed running. problem product, I just returned back into fry's. price like 59 Vs. 79. I decide go for quiet one or powerful.( I means I like the module style. I already ordered EVGA 600w, but I will return back to Amazon. Thanks for your help!!

get Samsung SSD 250gb only $139 don't spend case $149. you can choose 49 for cooler master for same performance. buy windows 8.1 pro student update pack for 69.99. ( you must install previous windows version before install update pack, no matter activate or nor.) (previous windows version can be windows 8/7) i think Asus X79 should able auto tuning overclork to 4.7ghz for your system. overall. you should save some money.

I got average 58.8dB reading when I put the decibel meter near by chassis ( I manual turn off all chassis fans and mini speed of cpu fan.) I turn max all fans including CPU fan only make 62.1db. most of noisy come from the PSU.

anyone have advise for temp for my motherboard or CPU. I can manual control Fans speed to maintain chassis temp. room temp:30 degree I can keep motherboard for 34-38 degree. CPU for 32-35 degree. but the auto tuning fan software came from the asus set my motherboard to 36-40 degree. Cpu for 32-45 degree.

I don't know how it that work, but I don't think it will make any different. even that is unreliable brand. it at list past UL test under their promise 700w. U.S. regulation isn't useless.

that's a reason that I choose Asus X79 for sure that I can stable overclock. Asus x79 got 4 temp sensors for and high performance voltage control. this is they promise.

PSU quality. I don't know, but I can't sure every PSU got perfect quality. you can spend like 79 for psu. but I think that is waste. PSU is not high tech product. just made of coils and capacitors. everything is made in china. you even know what brand of capacitors that they use. I have motherboard 2 yr protection plan. 5 yr intel cpu warranty. and 2 or 1 yr gpu warranty. I don't think it will make a lot different. I use 700w for 350w system.( it won't overload or overheat)

I think 700w psu is enough for my pc. I don't even like HDD. 250SSD is okey for my system ( I don't like every single files save in my pc. I will use encrypt SDD hard drive to store my business file. For the case. cooler master case is awesome. I can have 200mm mega fan flow air downward for cooling down Motherboard control unit ( local at top of motherboard.) for the motherboard, MSI motherboard is only $180 + protection 2 yrs plan for 49.99. but I would like asus motherboard bcz it boost the memory and Hard drive speed. it little be expensive for $328.99, but you have to think about future update.( I will add second Graph card, and other Rams and others.)
