  1. Hey everyone.

    I'm currently buying new parts for a gaming computer i'm going to put together myself. I know a PC should constantley stay below or around 60°C, But what Kind of cooling should I have for these parts?

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz 4M sharing L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor

    ASUS P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail -

    ATI 100-435805 Radeon X1900XTX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card

    ATI 100-435721 Radeon X1900 CrossFire Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card


    I originally Thought that a...

    ... PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V EPS12V 610W Continuous @ 40°C Power Supply 90 - 264 V UL/ULC/CE/CB/TUV

    With 2 x 80mm Blue UV Sensitive LED Fans -1 at rear, 1 on top(w/ Fan Grill & Filter)

    Would be able to Cool efficently, but i am still unsure if I am correct.

    Please let me know If those parts can cool efficently, and if not, what I need to add to my computer to do so.

    Thanks!

    Your cooling option is suitable to your gaming rig. I might offer you better cooling solution. Watercooling is best cooling invention around if you have lot of money in your wallet.

    ATI 100-435805 Radeon X1900XTX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card
    ATI 100-435721 Radeon X1900 CrossFire Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card (Does it compatible? Look closely at CrossFire Edition. You might better splurge out X1900 CrossFire instead.)

    Why 2X80 MM Blue UV fan? why not using Vantec Stealth or Thermaltake XBlower?

    Alright, Just looked it up. I found a case,

    APEVIA (ASPIRE) X-Plorer ATXB8KLW-BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

    Has 2 fans, and is $30 cheaper than my originial choice.

    So, 2 fans, And the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610 EPS12V EPS12V 610W Continuous @ 40°C Power Supply 90 - 264 V UL/ULC/CE/CB/TUV

    WITH an Extra Thermaltake Thunderblade A1926 120mm Sleeve Blue LED Light Cooling Fan.

    Would that be Even Better??
