[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 183

post #1821 of 7113
Hi everybody, I'm new to overclock.net the main reason being I'm going to build my first computer and coming from a Mac I thought it would wise to join this forum to get some tips and tricks from more experienced people.

So here's my specs:

Case: Fractal design Define Mini

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

MOBO: Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z (Obviously)

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB kit 1333mhz

GPU: Inno3D GTX 570 (Not the reference one but the one with a cooler like the reference GTX 560 TI which isn't mentioned on their site.)

HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F4 1.5TB

PSU: Seasonic M620Sii12 620W Modular Power Supply

And some cheap optical drive.

I'll probably put up pics of the CPU, Cooler and GPU later this Day, the rest of the parts still has to arrive...

Molokotof, I got recommended to get a SSD, it would benefit you as well.
post #1823 of 7113
Yes I know the benefits in Boot and loading times are great but the problem is i'mat the top of my budget right now. Then the next thing I'm getting will be a better screen since i'm stuck with a 17" one right now... An SDD is something i'll look into for the Christmas period.

Why is everyone going 4x4gb, surely 8gb is enough?

Mostly because ram is so cheap these days. I didnt go with 16 out of rumors of ivy bridge supporting very high clocked ram, so for 8 months, ill wait and see. There are certain scenarios where more ram does help a lot, like encoding/editing, but 8gb is more than enough for the average user.

hello all

Friend of mine just finished assembling my new rig a few days ago. Happened to stumble across this club for my mobo. One of the nicest mobo's I have ever owned. I love it.

What you guys do with that big RoG's sticker? heh I left it off for now

EDIT: Here is pic as per OP's request
