  1. If you want good looking heatsink less designs check out the Geil black dragons
  2. I happen to have that board and you should be good for whatever, the board will throttle the CPU before damaging itself in any case. If you are really paranoid you may want to try to get a temperature probe on the mosfet heat sink though since it can get hot. Though the D14 is designed to give it some cooling, that why the middle fan hangs out the bottom. Also there is a piece of plastic on that heat sink which is hard to see but needs to come off.
  3. BeQuiet! might be a third option if you want a better balance between looks and performance.
  4. The reason is Intel is more limited in what it will (officially) support for instance limiting the voltage to 1.5V whereas AMD will accept 1.65V kits.
  5. If your case has 5 slots the Gigabyte board. If it has 4 the Asus board.
  6. That memory is out of stock and you're over budget already... though remember the brief a photo shop rig not a gaming rig and it needs to be stable. Something like this may actually be better given the use case!

  7. Just as a counterpoint, ditch the SSD (64GB isn't enough for anyone!), go with a cheaper case and you get this: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor (£80.39 @ Aria PC) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard (£35.87 @ Scan.co.uk) Memory: Avexir Core series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£63.90 @ Overclockers.co.uk) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£44.95 @ CCL Computers) Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 1GB Video Card (£89.99 @ Aria PC) Case: Cooler Master K280 ATX Mid Tower Case (£31.80 @ Aria PC) Power Supply: Corsair CX 430W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply (£39.59 @ Aria PC) Total: £386.49 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

  8. YouTube Options is another option that looks like it does the same thing
  9. No because I'm not a clumsy fool. Seriously how often do you guys fail at drinking something from a cup after however many years of practice you've had?
  10. How about their baby brother the z5 plus?
  11. If you liked the phantom look the 630 should be around the same price and can handle a fair bit of water without any modding needed.
  12. Unfortunately none of those will fit without some modding. In the roof the mounts for 140mm fans are not spaced correctly for the X60 and so would need new ones drilling, and the end tank of the H220 means it will not fit without cutting away some metal. You can, if your really want to remove the ODD and HDD mounts by drilling out the rivets. That would let you mount any of those including H320 in the front, you could then expend it as you wish including adding as slim 240 in the roof however at his point you are almost better of with a full custom loop. so you can fit a thick 360 with a tube res int he front.
  13. Have a look at this website, they have specially made filters to work with a lot of cases http://www.demcifilter.com/
  14. Can I just add, try cleaning the dust out of it. And I don't mean blowing it with compressed air, get to the fan and remove it properly.
  15. You can't over tighten the screws they have a stop on them at which point the force the springs are exerting is correct, just make sure you tighten them in an X pattern.
