New Intel build, how do these specs look? (Pics!) - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Correct me if I am wrong, but to get a 4.7 OC you are probably going to need a Pro or Deluxe motherboard. The P8Z68-V might not have enough oomph for your liking. Going with the P8Z68-V Pro, even though it has alot of extra stuff you wont be using, will be better in terms of stabilization with that high of an OC.

Naw, the standard one has the power phases that would be requires to hold a 4.7GHz overclock 24/7 and that's pretty much all you need to worry about with Sandy Bridge. Plus, it's a pre-overclocked bundle so they can't sell it with an incapable motherboard.

Well, for longevity, maybe increased phase is a good idea. Seems the UD3P has 12 phase, the UD4 16 phase, P8Z68-V 16 phase and P8Z68-V Pro 16 phase.

I'm stuck, my decision is between the GA-Z68XP-UD4 and P8Z68-V Pro

Well, I think you're the only one who can make that decision. Personally I'm a Gigabyte fan, others on OCN would obviously say to go for the Asus.

TBH, they are probably quite similar in most aspects. I suspect I would go for which ever looks best. So that's decided.

Can you advise on any good fans for the Corsair H100? I think I will get one having read reviews, but want to change the stock fans to push/pull aftermarkets. So far my list is:

Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.7ghz (pre-overclocked) - £199.17
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 - £124.68
8GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1600mhz - £37.80
Corsair H100 Hydro - £71.10

Now just need some fans for the Corsair. I am aiming to have this ordered and built by next Friday when some sort of 3rd revision of a popular FPS game played on a field of battle is released. I forget the name.

Asus P8Z68-V - £103.68

Asus P8Z68-V Pro - £124.68

8GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1600mhz - £37.80
16GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1600mhz - £79.16

Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro BK106 - £37.19
Corsair H100 Hydro - £71.10


So, what setup would you choose out of this? We can potentially change the cooler to anything on www.scan.co.uk... so feel free to replace it, but the board, CPU and RAM has to be one of the above.

Please help!

My vote goes to
gigabyte z68xp ud4,its a rock solid board.
8gb corsair vengeance
corsair h100.

I already have a EVGA GTX570 SC smile.gif I will look at the Scythe Gentle Typhoons, but I already have 2 Zalman ZM-F3's which are meant to be good, so maybe i'll look for two more of them.

My current setup is:

Intel Core i7 920 D0 @ 4ghz
Asus P6T
6GB Corsair XMS3 Classic 1600mhz
EVGA GTX570 SC
Asus Xonar Essence ST
Antec TruePower 650W
1 x Crucial C300 128GB
1 x Crucial M225 64GB
A ton of 1TB Samsung disks
Corsair 800D

For the fans, I don't really know which ones would be best. Personally I want my PC to be as silent as possible so I'd probably go for some Gentle Typhoons, but you probably won't notice too much difference between various fans anyway.

Gentle Typhoons are like over a tenner a pop. Forty squid of fans ain't nowt to be sniffed at!
