Third is the block/coolant.

Vidcards with after market heat sinks without a backplate tends to sag at the end increasing the pressure on the pci express port. After sometime the slot malfunctions due contact loss in the pins. I had that happen with a asus 6950 and a asus p8p67pro.

Hopefully you should be able to avoid this by buying the gigabyte board and a card with a back plate on it.

Since you are fixed on buying a AIO I am going to stop my explainations on the pros of buying a aircooler  (Y)

I dont think so

I guess my wording was not clear. What I meant was its more likely to have the coolant evaporate or the pump to fail than to have a major leak. Ofc unless u has baddest of luck and got a lemon xD

yep throne, it tends to fail more than a metal heatsink.. and if those had a leak, boom! whole system is down.. thats something I pray for god that wont happen  (Y)
Nah dont worry abt it going boom xD The coolant will evaporate before lines start to leak xD

I ruled out large heat sinks because,

  • The're heavy and fixes to mobo not the casing, so since my pc is my laptop, i tends to move it a lot and i feel i would accidently bend/break my mobo  :(
  • it takes hell a lot of space
  • it increases case temps
  • its difficult to fix 8)

i feel liquid loops worth it for the price as it gives better cooling, with little more expense. the seidon v2 actually only 8500/=  (Y)

  • If you move your pc around like a laptop you are going to break the pci express slot which ur gfx card is in first.
  • That depends on the size of the cooler
  • Since we are talking about after market coolers they move hot air to the rear case fan so the increase are negligible.
  • Not really that difficult imho, if I read this right the seidon is actually more difficult to install.

There are pros and cons to buying a aio liquid cooler. You are going to get better cpu temps for its size but the vrms and the ram are going to be cooled less, and you will have three points of failure in aio coolers that you will have to look out for. Two of which will make you replace the whole cooler.

I am not that worried about dust. my room is in a hidden corner of ma house  ;D and theres less dust there, and also I do clean the whole pc monthly with the blower a medium paintbrush and a artists brush  :)
but still im gonna cover the T shape in front of the vortex, where intake fan is, with a cloth or a net, a experiment im gonna do in the future  (Y)

Good luck keeping that schedule  ;D

If you are going for a build you are gonna keep for a while get a air cooled heat sink. Only thing you have to replace in it is the fan after about five years. Hyper 212 evo is a simple and cheap heatsink to get. You can even do a light overclock on it.

Get a case with a good dust filtration system, otherwise your case is going to look like something from mad max in a few months xD
I had a Cooler Master 690 II which had mesh grills in the front and top, they get full of dust after few months and only way to clean it proper was to remove the top and and front panel altogether :(
Now I have a Raven 05 which is easy to clean when dust accumulates.

What is your budget?
If you are going to game at that resolution I believe you must go with a 980 TI or something from the red guys that has equilavent performance.

My budget is pretty flexible but not interested in crazy setups like crossfire ect. 980ti is a no go since I am going to be using a freesync monitor.

u going to use freesync so wait for polaris dnt go with older gpus it will outdated in onethr cuple months

I was thinking the same thing. But it will depend on the quality of downscaling MG279Q can do at the resolution of 1920x1080 which the gtx 760 I am using is okay at.

So my old PC is kinda failing bit by bit and its getting harder finding new parts in sl even ordering from the US is harder due to high prices and no stock.

Main usage is for gaming. This system is gonna be built to game on a Asus MG279Q 2560x1440 144Hz Freesync IPS.

So reasonable suggestions on what parts to get are welcome. Oh and I am going to be using a Raven 5 to house all the components.

Looking forward to your suggestions  (Y)

A similar build to your own in SL is gonna cost probably USD 200 more. But you do get local warranties ect.

Some component prices are almost the same as US prices while others are off by upto 10k.

Unless you are overclocking by huge margin, buy hyper 212evo and call it a day.

I would also suggest you buy a freesync compatible monitor, that should be useful with new games after a few years.

Hope this helps  (Y)

Any reason you want two 120gb evos instead of one 240gb unit?
Also what resolution you gonna play at and whats your monitor?

can IPS have that much high refresh rate? ??? ??? i thought only TN panels can reach 120hz
Now the panel tech has matured enough to get a consistent yields of high refresh rate IPS panels. Few years back you had to get a korean ips monitor and overclock it to get 120hz, which was a hit and miss.
The PG279Q from Asus can do 165Hz :o . Now all we need is Nvdia to support VESA Adaptive Sync.

Thanks guys for you inputs :)

Asus MG279Q will be available mid-march for around 105-110k
Thats good to hear. Any chance of also getting down the PG279Q?

I own a VG248QE so If you are planning to get one I suggest you to go with a BenQ XL2411Z. Because BenQ is way better when it comes to colours compared to ASUS. Just to be clear both VG248QE and XL2411Z are TN panels not IPS.
I cant seem to find Benq monitor for sale here, do you know any?

Are there any vendors in Sri Lanka bringing them down or planning to?

I had 2 hard drives die due to ants(Both were Samsung  o.0 ). Put some naptha balls in your casing as zero suggests, you can also draw a line around your pc with hitline chalk.

Best of luck  :)
