Overhauling my rig - need advice - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ok, I'm starting to narrow down the parts list, this is what I have right now.

I'm keeping the Corsair HX750W PSU, Asus Xonar DX Sound card and 2 WD Caviar Black 1TB and 2TB storage HDD's from my sig rig. To that I'm adding:

- Corsair Dominator 8 GB (2x 4 GB) DDR3-1600 Kit (€119,-)

- Intel Core i5-2500K (€182,-)

- Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.B (€33,-)

- EVGA GTX 580 (€420,-)

- OCZ Vertex3 120GB 2.5" (€231,-)

- LG IPS236V (€186,-)

- 1 Year Pixel Warranty (€39,99)

Then I'm not too sure what to do for the case and motherboard... I wanted to get the Asus Maximus IV Extreme (€291,-) along with a Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced (~€85,-)... Problem is the Maximus IV Extreme is an E-ATX board, so it won't fit inside the CM690 II.

There's 2 possible solutions; a different motherboard or a different case. The different case would be a SilverStone Raven RV-03B-W (~€120,-). As for a different motherboard option, I don't have a clue to be honest.



Any ideas on the motherboard/case situation would be greatly appreciated, as well as any ideas/concerns on the rest of the build.

Thanks in advance guys .

Bump.

If it is available in your area the ASUS P8P67 WS REVOLUTION seems to be a recommended mobo for running SB and SLI with a rather robust feature set.
I am (not-so-patiently) waiting for ACTUAL benches of BD and if they are not comparable my next build will be SB with this mobo.
