Dear Scott,

I am planning to build a PC from following parts:

- Case: Thermaltake Overseer RX-1
- PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower XT 675W
- Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3
- CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K
- CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2
- Video Card: ASUS EAH6850 - AMD Radeon HD 6850 - one card only

Planning to use a Solid State HDD SATA III as a boot-up, OS drive - 120 GB
Two SATA III 2TB regular (7200 RPM) HDDs in RAID 0 configuration for data

Please critique the above parts for following planned use: over-clocking, fast boot and fast browsing, general computing, some video and photo editing (not heavy duty), gaming (not extreme gaming), quiet operation.

Please recommend RAM for the above planned use and parts (16 GB).

Thank you in advance for any guidance you are able to share.

Sincerely,

Rahul

PS. I'm aware that you do not recommend ASUS because they do not follow the industry standard for front case panel connections. Please suggest on how to overcome this non-standard layout. Thank you.

Here are the links you had requested:







Given the specs outlined, what RAM would you recommend?

Thank you,

Rahul

I'd recommend , preferrably a name brand like Corsair, Crucial, Kingston, etc. You can see my heatsink recommendations . If you read my postings there, you can see that in general I would not recommend heatsinks that used more than 1 fan. You can see my power supply recommendation criteria , and based on that it looks like the one you selected should be excellent. Scott.

Looks like I had a couple "G"s where I should have had "T"s, but that's all fixed now. <g>
One should when building or deploying systems. Scott.
