Thoughts on build 2600k - Page 3

BUTTTTTTT, you have to watch your RAM spacing because the Noctua has been known to overlap the first RAM slot on P67 boards.
1155 and 1156 are very simliar, that being said I had a d14 on my 1156 setup, and to fix the problem with ram spacing all you have to do is take the first fan and move it up about 1/2 inch. This didnt compromise cooling performance at all. So he shouldnt have any problems with the d14 interfering with his ram.

Sounds nice Sockpirate. Eh, I myself was going to go with the Matrix 580's, but then I remembered about going 3D Surround and was like CRAP, I NEED 3GB OF VRAM. Which, I don't see why the ROG didn't put 3gb of VRAM on such a beast of a card, it puzzles me. But always, I say go with the Crucial M4, Also I was going to go with Dominator GT RAM too, I just love them. And I gave you a link to the 850w version of the AX Series power supplies if you haven't seen that already

you could save $150 on the motherboard and get essentially the same overclocking results with the Asus P8P67 Pro.

SLI runs just fine on 8x8x so no absolute need for an NF200 chip either.

Also the Asus Matrix cards are a waste of money. Go with the DirectCU-II versions (I've tested both). They overclock the same, have an equally powerfully aftermarket cooling and are a fair bit cheaper.


Everything else looks fine, perhaps a 2500k if you don't absolutely require HT.

Also the 1.5 GB cards are a bit faster than the 3 GB version with the exception of specific extreme resolutions (Which you may be using).

I am reallyyyy on the fence about going with 2x of the MSI lightning extreme cards for nvidia surround.....ughhh must think, i am pretty deadset on the M4E, been really wanting this board for a long time. I know the pro would be just fine, as i have the sabertooth p67 and they perform quite similar, but like i said i really like that M4E.

Was maybe thinking about going with these too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...te%20Vengeance
there pretty decent, but you might wana take a look at this thread first, could help you pick one that wil suit your needs best

There are a few that I have recommended, so take a look.

Also have to agree with Robilar on this one, the Asus P8P67 PRO is a monster!!! alternative go for the WS revo, it has the nf200 for tri sli.

Why not the 2500k? it's enough for gaming unlkess ofcourse you require HT.

Hey sock, I have the Maximus IV Extreme too and it's pretty much the most featured P67 board. It has everything you could possibly need. Also, for the Lightning Extremes, Tweaktown had them over clocked to the high 900's, somewhere around 960-980mhz. I believe, in my opinion, the 3gb cards would be best that way you can be somewhat future proof if you decide to go with Surround later, you never know.

Been doing a lot of video stuff lately and the hyperthread has really come into use.

Also, would 850w still be enough for 3x 120hz monitors ? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...410T%2023.6%22 more than likely goign with these 3 benq

Check that link I provided for a few more options for RAM around that price but these are some that pop into my mind right now:

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600mhz CL9 1.35v $60

G.SKILL Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600mhz CL9 1.25v $70

Honestly sockpirate, If you have that Cougar 1000w, you should use it and then stick the new 850w in your old build.
