Good evening MMOChampion!
I am going to attempt building a PC for the first time in like 8 years.
I have based my build largely on Chaud's Narwhal build. Here are the parts currently on my shopping list:
Part________ Model_____________________________ Price_______ CPU Intel i5-2500K 192 Eur Heatsink Thermaltake Frio 49 Eur GPU MSI 560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II 207 Eur MoBo GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H-B3 120 Eur RAM G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB) 47 Eur HDD WD 1002FAEX Caviar Black 1TB 72 Eur DVD Asus DRW-24B3ST 29 Eur PSU Corsair 650TX V2 86 Eur Case Fractal Design Define R3 112 Eur Extra Fans 2 x Noctua NF-P14 FLX 44 Eur OS Windows 7 Home Premium 64b 100 Eur Total: 1058 Eur
Now a few questions:
<edited them out, since they got answered>
Appreciate any comments/sugestions from the experts.
I built my baby over the weekend! Exact spec as described above. Behold!
It is currently running smoothly and with the following (non-overclocked) temps according to RealTemp:
Max idle temp: 30°C
Max temp while in 40-man raid killing Garrosh in Org (Ultra settings): 42°C (with 30 fps and no lag whatsoever)
Max temp at 100% CPU load during Prime95 test: 47°C
So I think the temps look pretty good, right? Or should they be even lower given my setup?
Thanks again for the help and useful advice!
