post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

This build is going to last for a while I think. I have always been building Intel Platform and this is going to be my AMD platform build.

Case: Modded Silverstone SG04H
CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1065T
Mobo: Asus M4A88T-I DELUXE MB, actual CPU
Video Card: Any suggestion, a cheap card that can be fitted with water block
RAM: Corsair 2 x 4GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9 SODIMM Memory (CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9)
HDD: Corsair Force Series 3 120 SSD 3 SATA 6Gb/s + Mech Drive, perhaps
DVD/BLURAY: Slim LG DVD OEM
FANS: Zalman ZM-F3GL 120mm Green LED Case Fan
FAN CONTROLLER: Kaze Master Ace 3.5 (3.5inch Version)
Cooling: RASA KIT, will probably be slightly modded (RX240)
PSU: Modded Corsair 620W
OS: WIN7 64BIT
Colour: Black and green

LOGS:
1. Parts Selection
2. Power Supply Modding
3. Case Modding
4. overclock.net logs
5. Continue Power Supply Modding
6. Continue Case Modding (Radiator Cut-out, Bottom Case Cut-out, and CPU Cooler Mobo Back Cut-out)
7. Continue with Cable Sleeving
8. Pump Cable Sleeeving
9. Arrival of the hexacore 95W CPU
10. Glimpse of modding tools I used
11. Pre-fiting of PSU, RAD and other available accessories
12. Arrival, unboxing and pre-testing of most parts
13. Watercooling Fitting Test
14. Ordered some watercooling bits and pieces.
15. Powder Coating of the Frame
16. Carbon Fibre on top and fitting of I/O accessories
17. DVD Drive painting
18. Mounting the Top Grill. This maybe temporary as I will try the scythe slim fan here as exhaust.
19. Found a place for an SSD
20. Acrylic panel modding


Any suggestion guys?

By the way, here is the latest and most updated photo of the build:

Moved to build logs
Also i think you have a serious problem with the build configuration
The M4A88T-I Deluxe only supports 95W TDP processors because the small size results in limited VRM design and limited TDP support. That means if you are planning to use a 125W 1055T, it will not work on that board.

It will work, as long as he isnt stressing the CPU and doesnt OC.
He can easily undervolt it slightly to bring down the TDP.

I'm sure there will be little problem with safety as to running a 125W CPU with that board; as with the standard with ASUS boards, the board will throttle the CPU according to VRM heat before the VRMs fail. However, this may be a problem for the end user. When he is loading the cores and needs them the most (i.e. during a video render), the clock speeds may suddenly drop due to the VRM protection and result in loss of performance.

EDIT: I see you will be running it with a 1065T, getting it OEM I assume. I believe there is only a 95W version of that processor. It will work splendidly with that board then.

Thanks, yes, I am getting the OEM CPU from eBay Hong Kong, hopefully it will run sweet.
