Suggestion for a new computer.

Unless they do something really stupid I will always recommend Corsair for coolers. Not that there aren't equally good coolers from other makers out there...Noctua has an excellent air cooler, but I still prefer my H70. None of my friends understand multipliers or vdroop, but they all think liquid cooling instantly equals supreme machine!

The problem I face is that I have no clue about the enternals of pcs, nor how they work. This is why, finding a good preassembled 1 is what I need to do.The problem I face is that I have no clue about the internals of pcs, nor how they work.

Two things:1. They're are no "generic Chinese" foundries producing the Z68 chipset2. Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, EGVA, and Asrock are all good manufacturers. (Gigabyte has had the most issues with the Sandy Bridge chipsets.)Let's keep the info reasonably educated in here.Oh, btw. Gigabyte is a Chinese company. ;) And Asus. And Asrock.
You don't know the Auction site like I do. Yeah, it is Taiwan :) As for the Gigabyte Z68 boards having issues with SB, rubbish!!! I have never heard that, and the one (UD4-B3) I have is rock solid. The only issue i believe was with the UD7, and that has been adressed with a bios update.Gigabyte are very good at adressing issues that arise, and found there boards to be very rock solid in reliability and performance. Asus also have issues from time to time, and MSI also. In fact they all do. The last Asus board I owned failed after 2 years, and performance was crap, so no board maker is immune. You need to do a bit more research when stating that the GB boards have issues with the SB chip, a reasonably eduacated one at least, and at least provide evidence that more than 1 series of GB boards have this issue.http://www.vortez.ne...4_review,1.htmlReview of the board Z68 UD4-B3

Not sure what town you are in,AKL ? CHC ? but I would suggest ringing around maybe some of the smaller computer retail outlets and tell the what you need. Just make sure you get a good quality (most important) parts, especially good quality ram etc.

The CPU cooler keeps the most important, expensive part of your PC cool.The Power supply should be quality, as it's failure could fry your whole system. Corsair and Seasonic have a reputation for great PSUs. It's no surprise Corsair uses Seasonic's X chassis on many of their PSUs. Anyway, 500W is enough for a single GPU and CPU overclock, but it leaves little headroom.Pardon me. Republic of China. Either way, You agree. I know you do.
Re-reading this I think I might have misunderstood you here Zach.I do agree Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, EGVA, and Asrock all make solid boards, of course

I think something is in all of us to do a liquid system at least once. Many of us that have don't do it twice. Liquid cooling grabs people in some cases looking for a quiet rig with "No fans! Yay!". That makes me laugh since the radiators "fans" are pretty loud under load.This was my

I just resurrected for my brother. I ripped out two video cards that I also had liquid cooled so now more for the CPU, but I still get better with air. Less work = better after you have your first liquid experience. I think it's a must though and certainly is fun, but it can be a pain to maintain, bleed hoses, and you still need some major fan cooling in your comp. Trust me on that. This rig is no fans. North bridge, South Bridge, 2 vdeo cards and my FX60 (at the time that CPU cost me $1,100). A week later I was back on newegg getting lots of fans ;)Todays cases with top fans and lower PSU's help a lot (a lot) also, but for me anyway, the thrill with it is no longer worth it. All that being said, I still don't ever regret doing it, I just will never do it again.
