Watercooled Matx Bulldozer Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright, I recently got my case prepped for bulldozer and all is ready to go. Just waiting for the matx motherboard and the bulldozer cpu, everything is already put together

These will be the specs:

GTX465 unlocked to GTX470 at 915mhz(fast as stock gtx580) - $100
2 Antec Kuhler 620s to cool GTX470 and Bulldozer CPU - $120
Hitatchi 1TB HD - $60
Lanbox Lite Case - $60
Bulldozer 8 core CPU - $170
Bulldozer Matx Motherboard - Asus Brand Bulldozer matx motherboard - $60
650 watt rosewill psu @ egg - $30


Lanbox lite has already been modded so that both radiators will exhaust the heat from cpu and vid card outside of the case which is nice since this case sucks for air flow. Pretty budget build but with a 8 core processor should be pretty good.

I'd get a corsair PSU rather thann a Rosewill one.

May be more expensive but a lot more reliable

Other than that build looks good.

What ASUS mATX board will you be using? I would not trust the 3+1 phase variants to run the bigger 8 core processors, most esp. those with 125W TDP.
