    GoldForest got a reaction from TSL in Help me decide on a cooler please   
    That's what I've heard. Can't go wrong with Noctua. 

    Oh, and if anyone is wondering why I just don't use my current X61, I plan on selling it to a friend along with the board, RAM, and CPU.

    Maybe Saudi Arabia should work on other things, like women's rights and many other things?

    GoldForest got a reaction from D Levy in Any suggestions on good 7.1(Or 5.1) headphones?   
    I do have one question, will they provide good surround sound? 
    Also, I did more research on the Tiamats, they connect directly to the PC through 3.5mm jacks. There is a USB, but that's for power. All the speakers are jacked. The USB with the Tiamat from what I understand is for speaker pass through, letting the control box send sound from PC to your Speakers. 
    Alright, well, I've have a lot to think about. I think I might head to one of the big cities near me and try to find a best buy or something with demos.

    Either of the ASUS. 
    If you want screen, the ultrawide, if you want hz, the 27 inch. 
    I don't know AOC that well, but ASUS has a great reputation when it comes to their monitors

    Do you plan on overclocking at all?

    What is your budget or do you not care?

    I try to follow a rule, get 200+ watts over what your system needs. This gives you room for OC and/or more parts. So it says you need 404, so you'll get a 550 + 200 watt to come out to 750. This is just how I judge it. Other people may have better answers than I.

    Rails and amps are technical terms that you don't really have to worry about.
    On the PSU it says what the plugs go to. Just follow those and you'll be fine.
    MB 24 pin to 24 pin
    8 pin CPU port goes to the 8 pin MB port or 4+4 CPU port to 4 pin MB port
    Sata goes with Harddrives, Solids, and other SATA parts.
    Etc.

    As for OC, again, you want lots of head room to OC.

    Your system is already pulling 400 watts, maybe even more. It could pull up to 450 watts, so 100 watts for an OC? You won't be getting a super high OC imo.

    Wrong thread for this. You should have put it in 'planning'.
    As far as parts go,
     
    CPU Cooler: Someone told me the NZXT x61 is better as it is bigger. They said it runs quieter and cooler as well.
     
    Graphics card: The ASUS 980ti strix pulls more watts than PCPartPicker claims. From this one review I've seen it pulls around 280 watts, but even with a 1000w PSU you are good.
     
    Speaking of PSU: If you want Cosair, go with RMI or AXI, emphasis on the I. Or go with a EVGA G2, P2. or T2.

    The 5820K build. Xeon's suck for gaming. The 5820K will render just as good, if not better, than the Xeon. I think it would be better with two more cores.
     
    Changes to make to your build list:
     
    CPU Cooler: 5820K runs hot, even for an air cooler. Go for at least a 120 AIO liquid cooler. Either a cooler master or corsair.240/280 would be best, but a 120 will cool it fine if you don't plan on OCing the CPU. If you are planning on OCing, go with either the H100I, H100I GTX, Seidon 240M, or Nepton 240M
     
    RAM: Don't buy two different packs! If you want 32 gigs of ram, go for a 32 gig kit. Cheaper and it ensures compatibility with the other RAM sticks.
     
    SSD: Go with Samsung 850 evo or pro
     
    HHD: Go with Western Digital as they offer better performance than Seagate, imo. And I've heard Seagate's rep isn't all that good too.
     
    Power Supply: EVGA all the way! Or a seasonic! Go for an EVGA B2, G2, P2, or T2 PSU, preferably G2 and up!
     
    Edit: Didn't realize that you were in New Zealand so the ram is going to cost about the same as your two packs. But it is still better to go with a single 32 gig kit than 2 16 gig kits because they might not run good together. RAM packs are made to run together with the sticks that come together. If you put two different packs together, you could run into some issues.
