I7 2700k gaming build - Page 2

pc 2700k build
motherboard: Asus maximus iv extreme-z this is still not pcie 3.0 but i heard it might upgrade after a bios change? Is this true? Plus ivy bridge compatibility ofcourse on the website they don't state these. I'm ok with buying a new board if ivy bridge is worth it in the future... I heard this is the best board for overclocking for the mean time.

Cpu: 2700k 3.5ghz i7
2500k is all you will need for gaming, a nice 4.5ghz + should be sufficient for upto 580sli/590/6990, tri-sli/xfire or quad would require a higherclocked cpu 5ghz+

ram: Mushkin redline 2133 16gb 4x4 2133mhz
populating all 4 ram slots would hinder your ocability, i would settle for 8gb as even that would hardly get used

hard disk 1 crucial m4 128gb sata 3
nice choice, this is a very solid ssd

hard disk 2 2tb sata 3 black caviar
the price of hdd's atm is sky-high, unless you can find a great deal, settle for a 1gb wd black, or samsung f3 1tb and purchase more storage when the prices come back down.

sound card: Fatality champion by sound blaster or any other suggestions since i'm gonna connect this to a really high end home theater receiver pioneer sc-37. Will this output 7.1 through the optical cable?
not up on sound cards, usb gaming headset

Case: Haf x
will definately provide good air-flow for an "on-air" build, but there are other cases more suited for water cooling where you heading in that direction, say a 800d or tj07

psu silverstone 1500w
silverstone psu's are good, make sure you go with a 80+ silver or greater when purchasing though, there is also no need for a 1500w psu unless quad-sli 580's were on the cards, with just 2x 580's and all your peripherals, an 850w 80+ silver would be adequate

cpu cooler h100 or top custom waterloop with apogee cpu block, 4*140 rads, dual 655 pump. (since the custom waterloop would cost as much as a single phase change cooler do you think i should practice ocing with the h100 first then switch to phase change later? And can phase change setups run 24/7 there isn't a lot of material on the subject in google and articles here date back to 2009...)

i would go with a xspc rasa 750 rs360 instead of the h100, im sure it can be had in the us for around the same price (as the linked item is in aud) and it will provide much better temps then the fully enclosed corsair unit.

gpu cooler: Water loop or if i can find a way to freeze everything i would.
if going with gpu cooling as well, i would suggest a full custom loop

dvd writer plextor 24x

video card radeon 6990 4gb or 590 gtx 3gb or 580 gtx 3gb, which one should i get? I keep on reading articles that radeons crossfire architecture has improved and can beat sli by 50%...but loses in single gpu benchmarks... So i'm more inclined to go for radeon since quad gpu's would be in my end build when games start to catch up.

i would suggest sli 580 3gb's, should you consider extreme gaming at triple-wide gaming resolutions, the vram is a definate benefit, as well as the 580's being very powerful cards, although new architecture is on the way, in the form of amd's 79xx series, and nvidia's kelper i.e: 6xx etc)

custom waterloop setup which will cost as much as a homemade single phase setup.

Cpu block swiftech apogee
radiator 4 x 140mm
dual pump
reservoir

will the dual pumps be able to push water across 3x (4x 140mm) rads?

Will i be able to get to 5.5ghz or maybe just going straight to phase change is cheaper?

Can i phase change my gpus also? Or do i need a waterloop as well for the gpus, chipset, memory etc?
in-experienced in custom loops, and would be of no help in this section! :d

i have an unlimited budget but i want a bang for the buck. Kinda hoping i could get to the lower 5+ ghz with the h100... Then i wouldn't need to go the extra mile in a few months...
imo

850W should do. 1000W if the OP wants the headroom.

Definitely 1500w if you go quadfire. Especially since you don't care about the price.

I understand that your budget is unlimited AND that this is OCN...but I can't imagine why anyone would need 4 GTX 580s in Quad SLI. There are a lot of problems that come along with running 4 GPUs at once. What resolution are you planning on playing at?? I feel like there isn't a resolution high enough for even 2 3GB 580s to struggle with. Adding 4 at this time kinda seems like a waste of money...

BUT... It's your computer so who the hell am I to tell you any different. Good luck with the build

Yup i want a cool sig and a future proof system at least 4-5 years. im in this for gaming and offcourse the accomplishement of building something but wouldn't want to go through it again till at least 4 years.

unfibilly11 i gonna play starcraft 2 in nvdia surround 3x display and maybe 3d surround battlefield 3 and call of duty for fun i heard you need double the processing power to do 3d in surround at 1080p.... if i could do that with just 2 580gtxs that would be great.

Sounds good with all the suggestions so far.

Unfortunately, Quad-SLI (4 separate physical cards) won't fit on any LGA1155 (Sandy Bridge) board (at least last time I checked, correct if I'm wrong). So, Tri-SLI is as high as you can go. If you really have a thing for Quad SLI your only option is to go with two 590s. HOWEVER, each of the two chips on a 590 are NOT equal in performance to a true GTX 580 chip. So, consider that a GTX 590 will provide about 80% of the performance that two GTX 580s will give you. It's like 5/8ths of the way between a single GTX 580 and two of them. But you'd be best off with Tri-SLI GTX 580s, and honestly, 2 of them is more than plenty.

Wow, what a great list! The only change I would make really is to get the RX360 kit. You can always make changes later but it has everything you need to get started. Add a rad for better cooling but you can't beat the price if you bought everything separately. One pump should be plenty too IMO.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14...?tl=g30c83s137

I say GTX580 3G's all the way! Very sweet cards, best I've owed by far. You will need a good 360 rad alone to cool those puppies and one or your CPU. That's what I'm running with my 3x Sli 570 rig.

The AX1500w is perfect IMO, Silverstone makes a good one too from reviews I've read. I would have one now if I could afford it. Anything less will be working pretty hard to keep up with the combined wattage you are going to need.

Good luck and have fun!

Why would u waste money on a midrange CPU setup with that budget. Go with the rampage IV extreme coming out this month and a 3960x which wipes the floor with the 2700k at multithreaded apps. Route I'm going with one of my worklogs. Toss in 64gb of dominator gt and ur g2g for a few years. I'd only get one gpu now then pick up 4 of the 7970s or "gtx 680s" in Q1

Will 2 gtx580s 3gb be able to run 3d surround at 1080p for the new fpss around? at 60+ fps? if it can then that's all i need for now...
