Finally a build that's half agreeable. THANK GOD!!!

1) I won't exactly go for the 1270 simply because of cost. 1230 v5 works fine too. 2) A $30-40 SeaSonic 350W PSU works well enough here. Or maybe an Antec Basiq BQ-430.

But otherwise, definitely something that I would've done. Nice one, BoyScout!

There is, but they didn't even throw into the ARK site nor the retail link.

... Why? This is a 7 year old processor. No way you're finding this brand new, in the style the site accepts.

It can go up to infinite Ghz, as long as it stays under Tcase, which is at 89.9°C. To ensure not having overheat and performance issues, I recommend not overclocking at all. The only way you'll ever overclock a locked multiplier chip from Intel is through BCLK (baseclock), and that causes instability since it also overclocks other components such as PCI-e Bus and RAM. That way, you will not experience performance impacts at all. Also, E5-2690v3 has something called TurboBoost, which allows the CPU to automatically heighten the frequency to a certain speed. In this case, it's up to 3.5Ghz, negating quite a bit of need to overclock.

It's WIP...

But honestly, mainrelli should give us all a timeframe soon. We are REALLY desperate to find out what's taking so long for it to be added. It's been a while since we started badgering him for the update.

Can I have a timeframe of when the new H240X2s are going to be added?

Actually, AsROCK motherboards beats out Asus in value. Most of the brands are all good and reliable motherboard makers (sans Biostar, and a few handfuls I've to name), but AsROCK has em' cheaper. And your motherboard, I believe, is good for the price range.

Pah... Bad for the Tom's Hardware baselines. The cooler is bad for its price. You could do well with the 212 EVO and if for quiet, Noctua coolers are good and aplenty at the $70 range. And forking $20 more gives you a H100i, which is a DELICIOUS water cooler. The motherboard? Panthetic. Grab a AsROCK Z97 Extreme6. RAM is expensive. RAM at DDR3-1866 costs ~$60 right now, and the DDR3-1600 makes the cost even worse. The card is SOOOOOO expensive!!! Especially given its performance!!!!! Seriously?! Grab a GTX 970, better at pricing, much more efficient, and way more quick at maxing out most games, something R9 290X will have a harder time doing without spending too much watts or getting too hot. The case could've been a Fractal Design Define R5... or NZXT H440. This one is just not as good. The PSU isn't EVGA's good ones. Grab something with 220 and G whatever.

Overall, this is some very awful build for the price. Also, you should learn to do color-themed builds. Like this, black with blue accents all over: PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/bznwnQ Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/bznwnQ/by_merchant/
