New Build Help/Suggestions

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, I've come to the conclusion that I need to spend my money on something other than what I have been (alcohol and what not) so I've decided to build a new pc as mines a few years old.
The PC will be purely for gaming with some video editing/MINIMAL photoshop.
I've been researching while I'm working (yay for internet on mobile phones)
And here's so far what I've come up with.

Currently running a single Asus LED 27" (1920x1080) but a friend of mine is going to give me a great discount on 2 more of them when he gets back from his holiday (4months). I wont be building it for around a month and a half (waiting for my christmas bonus ) so I've thought about waiting for the Ivy Bridge and all that but my PC wont play BF3 so I'll prob get impatient.

Case: CoolerMaster HAF X
Mobo: Asus P8P67 WS Revo
CPU: i7 2600k
PSU: Corsair 1050W HX-1050 -- Over Kill/May purchase a 3rd 580 in the future.
GPU: EVGA GTX 580 HC 2 FTW (3gb edition)
GPU: EVGA GTX 580 HC 2 FTW (3gb edition)
RAM: .Skill 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz PC12800 DIMM Memory Kit [GS-F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL] - will probably buy 2 kits (total of 8gb)
SSD: Curcial M4 - 128GB - I plan on purchasing more later
HDD: WD Caviar Black 2TB
Optical: Pioneer BDR-206BK Blu-Ray Writer

~Water Cooling
CPU Block: EK-Supreme HF Acetal+EN Nickel
Rad: XSPC RX360
Rad2: XSPC RX240
Pump: Swiftech MCP655
Reservoir: EK Res 250 Advanced
Tube: 6m ProFlex PRO LRT UV Blue (1/2"ID - 3/4"OD)
Fittings: 14 XSPC Compression Fittings (1/2" - 3/4"OD) - I may have miscounted?

For the 360+240 radiators to fit into the HAF-X case, I'll have to do some modding found here.

Since I've never actually built a WC'd system before, I've mainly gone by guides/work logs and I'm pretty sure I've come up with everything, if I've left something out please let me know.
I plan on running it: Pump > 360 Rad > GPU 1 > GPU 2 > 240 Rad > CPU > Res > Pump
I'm pretty sure that'll work from what I've read. Or should I opt out for the single 360 rad for the dual GPU and just buy a H70 or something for the CPU or get a dual res/pump and run 2 loops?

Once I've got the beast built I'll start to purchase blue led fans and what not to match in with my whole black/blue theme.

Any help/suggestions would be lovely

Looks nice mate, im not a fan of OCZ psus but I've heard that ones ok, and same with the SSD really I would pick up a Crucial M4.

If you can afford another pump then you yes splitting the 580s and cpu up would be nice, but you'll be fine as single anyway.

I count 14 fittings, unless the pump has a stock top then its 12.

A 128GB Crucial M4 will cost me $20 less. I may look into doing that depending on the other responses I get.

Thanks Andrew

You can't SLI at x16 each on a Sandy its x8x8 max, and that mobo can do that, I would maybe look at getting a better mobo for overclocking, I cant see the PRO holding the i7 back really.

Op.

Make sure you get tube cutters, Killcoil and distilled water for the loop.

Go Corsair instead of OCZ for a PSU.

+1 for m4 128GB SSD.

I wouldn't bother splitting up your loop, waste of money and space IMO. Take the money and get a better rad and/or more fans

Would you be able to suggest one and some compatible ram? Since I have no idea when it comes to looking for the right mobo's

The cheapest Corsair 1000W PSU I can find is $60 more. Would it be worth the extra cash?

If you plan on purchasing a 3rd 580 in the future, then yes definitely.

The ram you have there is fine, you could get the lower voltage stuff so you can bump up the voltage to tighten timings.

I would get the HX1050, since that is a pure 1050 not 2x500watts like the hx1000.

IF YOU WANT 3X SLI THEN YOU NEED A Different mobo.. the pro doesnt have the nf200 so it cant 3xSLI the WS has the bf200 however

according to the ASUS website. Didn't you say you couldn't do that?

Any idea where I could find a killcoil (Australia), Can't find anything besides this. Would that do the trick?

lmao at the Instructions & Ingredients
