Just won an awesome X58 board - epic build commencing!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So, thanks to the wonderful chaps at http://aria.co.uk I will soon have one of these in my room for the total cost of £0.00!

X58-OC.jpg

I will need to do a few things first though.

I'll be picking up a brand new i7 950 for £167.99.

My biggest problem will be sourcing the right RAM.

Finding a decent triple channel kit for a good price is next to impossible now, most shops just stock dual channel.

I can buy 16GB (4x4GB) for £50, worth it?

http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/8GB+Mushkin+Silverline+%23996770+%282x4GB%29+DDR3+1333MHz+9-9-9-24+?productId=41882

The question this is do I run all four sticks in dual channel mode for 16GB or keep a stick spare and run three sticks in triple channel for 12GB?

Can't wait to get folding on this baby!

Makes me sad that I don't have any money.

I'll have to make do cooling that CPU on an OCZ Vendetta 2 doh.gif

Once I have the money to finish off my watercooling wink.gif

Currently got a XSPC Dual Bay Pump + Res combo, still need the rest though.
