:welcome: magnetmagmaa

It is important that when you build a computer that the components compliment each other so that you have a balanced machine performance wise.

In order for us to advise you correctly we need to know what the computers main intended use will be.

Some pointers on your list of components;

SSD: Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

This capacity is not large enough and should be increased to at least 120-128GB as this will allow for the many updates that will be released in the future.

BlueRay player: LITE-ON Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Internal 12x BD Combo Model iHES212-08 LightScribe Support

BlueRay burner: ASUS Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS

Why do you want to purchase 2 devices when you can buy a single unit that will both play and burn BR disks.

CPU Water Block: D-Tek FuZion V2 INTEL Socket 1155/ 1156 CPU Block

If you use anything other than the heatsink and cooling fan supplied with a CPU it will invalidate your warranty, Intel are clear on this;

• damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing


Full article @ http://www.intel.com...b/cs-009862.htm

Other things to note are 1: There is no case listed and 2: There is no operating system listed, what will you be using?

Even if it is only used to run a few startup programs such as windows and windows 7 will be my operating system!

What one would i have to buy to do both???



CPU Water Block: D-Tek FuZion V2 INTEL Socket 1155/ 1156 CPU Block

If you use anything other than the heatsink and cooling fan supplied with a CPU it will invalidate your warranty, Intel are clear on this;

I understand this and i am willing to take this risk



Other things to note are 1: There is no case listed and 2: There is no operating system listed, what will you be using?

The case is a: Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

and the operating system will be windows 7 64bit home edition! :D

and the computer will be used by multiple people but mostly Gaming and media

Sorry if this is really basic stuff but i am an absolute amatuer.

The SSD should be used for the OS and any other important programs such as your anti virus software and your favourite game, it will not take Windows updates long to fill up the SSD on their own, see the blog @ http://www.zdnet.com...wn-to-size/2941 cost and inconvenience should also be considered 64GB M4 SSD = £58.00 http://www.amazon.co...G/?tag=pcp0f-21 128GB M4 SSD £84.99 http://www.amazon.co...A/?tag=pcp0f-21 once the smaller SSD was full you would need to upgrade it and this will not only mean more financial outlay but also opening up your case needlessly and risking possible damage.

Sony Blu Ray read/writer http://www.cclonline...fpLup1jB0Ek.6_Q

I for my part have ensured that you were aware of the CPU warranty issue and of course the final choice is yours.

Nice case, sensible choice of your operating system, you do not need anywhere near 32GB of Ram for your planned use as 8GB is the sweet spot for your OS and the cash saved would be better used to improve your video card - the same goes for the add on audio card, modern MBs have very good 8 channel integrated audio chips so consider a set of top quality speakers instead.

I can put you a list of parts together for you to look over if you like.

Hi iammykyl

Thanks for the heads up on the lack of software and you are of course correct it is an OEM device and it clearly states this on 2 alternative sites :blush:

I will double check the compatibility of the drive but PCPartpickers should only list devices compatible with your build should it not!

Yes, and seems pretty foolproof. Tried, DDR2 RAM first, then Mobo, only lists compatible boards. Tried, E/ATX Mobo, then case, only shows compatible.
Tried 128GB RAM, showed just one Mobo.
I think we can trust it.

Thanks for the additional information Michael :thumbsup:

As a precautionary measure an alternative B/R burner http://www.amazon.co...ASIN=B0075WEPJI and free burning software http://www.imgburn.com/ please take note of the copyright laws as mentioned by the author of the software LIGHTNING UK.
