Super build except that PSU. Should have got Seasonic for that money. That CWT DSA II platform build is old despite changes made.

Awesome,cabinet looks good, Get a Cooler in future and overclock it :cool:

Yeah will do that for sure. But hope that my PSU will be enough to support as I'm also planning to get a cooler and upgrade RAM to 8Gb or 12Gb in a couple of months

Nice setup. But I suggest you arrange those speakers for a surround system. The current arrangement gives you nothing out of the box effects.

Yeah i know but then i have to keep the speakers/woofer on the top of table and it might block the view while watching TV. Anyways i try to pull the speakers out of the table underneath a bit in front while playing music system

Yeah, I was aware about that issue, but the seasonic ones were unavailable and thought CX series were better than the other VX/VS ones (not sure though). Will try to upgrade to a better manufacturer, preferably a Seasonic one later

VX is better than CX. even gs 600 is a solid unit.

Oh.. then i think the one available in the store was VS 650 @4K..... someone told me that CX is better than that...
will get a better PSU in future upgrade.

Your psu is enough :)

One more query ---- Do I need to go with the specific RAM if I want to upgrade RAM in future ?
I might go with Corsair Vengence 8G/4G stick ot the Kingston Hyper BluX ....which will be better of this or any other one alternative ?

VS series is bad and cx is better than vs. But VX is better than both.

it will be better if you buy the same ram later .

Guys,
I'm having a little issue lately.
I have realized, since the past week, my PC is making very loud noise while playing games.
On opening the cabinet realized that the CPU stock cooler fan is making very loud noise while gaming. Now the temperature of GPU is around 62-64 C while gaming ( Bioshock Infinite, Metal Gear RIsing) and CPU is also in the same range. But the CPU stock fan is rotating at a RPM of ~6000. Tried to clean up the dust, not much improvement.
Any help ?

Yes, I'm planning to go for after market cooler. But what is really surprising to me is why suddenly the stock cpu cooler is making such loud noise, even while playing not intensive games. So what has changed so suddenly. Also whether CPU stock at 6000 rpm should be making any noise.
Also if junta here can help me with the procedure on how to clean PC and wipe off the dust of stock cooler
Will this after cooler also take up my RAM slot ?

Some large cooler may interfere with ram sticks, though most coolers will be fine. You can get CM Hyper TX3.
