I started to build a new computer. And I need some advice, a comment about my hardware. I want that my PC will be silent as possible. I've chose so far the following components:
Motherboard: Asrock z68 pro3
Processor: i-5 2500k
Ram: Corsair Corsair XMS3 8 GB 1600 MHz
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 120 GB
Harddisk: Samsung Spinpoint 1 TB 7.2
Case: Fractal design R3
Optical unit: DVD Sony Optiarc 24x
Why such decision?
I checked your tests and I almost took NZXT H2 - mostly because of USB 3.0 and good mark of course, but luckily Fractal Design released USB 3.0 kit:http://www.fractal-design.com/index.php ... ct&prod=62
So, another dilemma solved.
Processor and motherboard are quite OK.
I have some doubts about these components:
PSU: Sharkoon 460W or Sharkoon 550W or NesteQ ASM-XZero 500W
Graphic card: Gigabyte GV-R677SL-1GD
CPU cooler and fan
other fans in case
Have someone any experience with those PSUs?
Sharkoon got quite good mark, nesteq also. Another recommendation?
I haven't played games so far, but now may be I'll try a game or two. But usually no. Is this graphic card good choice?http://www.gigabyte.com/products/produc ... id=3861#ov
Is stock cooler and fan OK? I mean quiet? Or do you recommend something else? I will probably overclock my processor.
Do I need other fans in case?
I've seen this post (boring but silent)viewtopic.php?f=17&t=62962&hilit=boring
I like it!
