Hello,
This would be my first post here, since i finally am able to build a new rig:clap:, anyways is been a while since i built one and wanted a second opinion. The build i am aiming for is:

CPU: AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7 GHz Socket AM3+ with CCorsair Hydro Series™ H110i
MoBo: ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (thanks Kenrou for your help)
GPU: (2x) ASUS Radeon R9 380 STRIX-R9380-DC2OC-4GD5-GAMING 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 (air cooled)
PSU: EVGA 220-P2-1200-X1 80 PLUS Platinum 1200 W
Case: Fractal Design Define R5 Blackout Computer Case
Storage: Corsair Force 3 SSD ATA (for OS) and WDC WD ATA 1 tb.

Right now my main concern is that my GPU and CPU work well with the mother board and that my power supply is big enough to handle everything.:confused:

I am just getting it set up and sometime in the future i plan to change my GPU from air cooled to liquid, so for now i plan to put many fans haha.

Well i really appreciate your suggestions:thup:, Thanks for your time:salute: and have a great Sunday!

Again depends on what you put it in :D sound dampening does a good job, but it wont really help if you put 5000rpm fans in it. The GP-14 that come with it are very good, at 100% you hear more air movement then the fan itself, my NH-D15 same, but the GPU... well no going around that unless you water cool them or run a custom fan curve :p and you will almost always hear background pump noise with watercooling, which makes me want to tell you to upgrade the h90 to at least a Nepton 280L or h110i because you have a VERY hot CPU there, especially if you decide to overclock.


Edit : there are a few pages on that beast on the Hardware/CPU/AMD CPU or Hardware/Cooling section, you might want to check it out before deciding :thup:

The h110 was my first choice but i went to the h90 since i like having where the rear fan goes and wanted to leave some open for when i change the GPU to liquid cooling (at this point i didn't know what case to use), and now you recommended the Define R5 and i liked it haha, there is one more reason i liked it, it's simplicity would keep my 2 minions uninterested.

thanks for the link. i be reading it.
