New gaming rig, need part recommendations - Page 4

post #31 of 90
What about this Zotac GTX 580? It may not be running at factory-overclocked speeds, but it can more then easily match and exceed it, with no voltage increase if your lucky.

And? It comes with Batman Arkham City as well tongue.gif

And for a CPU cooler, what about something like a Hyper 212+? It's a very good 120mm tower cooler that accepts two fans, and does it's job without breaking the bank.

Also, to everyone else. How do all my parts look? I still need a heatsink and CD/DVD burner/drive any suggestions for those?

here's my wishlist. Hopefully you guys can view it.

You're welcome!

First of all, we can't read your wishlists. It takes us to our own wishlists if we're signed in. So you'll have to just post the raw links to your parts.

For coolers, there are two very good options. The first is the slightly more expensive but quieter Venemous-X RT from Thermalright for $75 and the second very solid option is the slightly noisier and smaller U120eXtreme from Thermalright.. Both are very solid and popular air cooler setups that will handle even some nasty overclocks if you get the post-flame-small.gif bug. (Trust me, you will end up doing at least a mild OC, guaranteed.)

There are, of course, other companies that make great coolers, I just happen to have bought a Venemous X RT from that company and was impressed with their product design and function. I went for the more expensive one because it's a bit quieter, albeit larger, and I knew I wanted to have a moderately high overclock. (Some folks are up to 5.0 GHz and 5.1 GHz 24/7 stable, and some even do it on air. I'm at 4.7 GHz and very pleased.)

I dont know if u red the post i wrote you just above your last one but going for 580GTX really is better choice than 570GTX. The thing i would like to add though is that you should really think going for
2x 560gtx-ti in SLI which perform better than a single 580gtx and cost about the same though i am not sure if your psu could handle it my impression is that it should with no problems.

As for ram those ripjaws or the corsair low profile i suggested you above seem a nice choice and good thinking changing ur CPU to 2500K.

For heatsinks i would agree with Shadowfax Venomous-X is really a value for money heatsink which does the job REALLY well.

Do some though on the 2x 560gtx-ti as they DO perform better than a single 580gtx.

The Zotac 580 for $480 is an option but it's not quite the same card. It has a 2 year limited warranty and has the stock reference clock speeds. eVGA Superclocked 580 is $500 at Core Clock 797Mhz (vs. 772Mhz reference) and Shader Clock 1594 MHz (vs. 1544 MHz reference) and it has a lifetime warranty from eVGA. (They really stand behind their products, and I consider that peace of mind worth paying a bit more for.)

Hmmm, Maybe I'm missing it but it doesn't say that they are LGA 1155.

Also, do you know if the Batman edition of the Superclocked 580 has a lifetime warranty? They are the same price and same card, I would just like to get a free game tongue.gif

1155 and 1156 sockets have EXACTLY the same mounting.smile.gif So its the same all coolers that fit 1156 fit 1155 also!


Plz tell me that you will have a look at the Tomshardware link about Benchmarking +30 Graphic cards for BF3 before you buy:)

1155 and 1156 mounting holes are the same, so if it says 1156 you're good too. But I would assume Since they're both EVGA they both are lifetime warranty. But as someone else mentioned, 2 hd 6870s outperform a GTX 580 at almost 200 dollars less; you wouldn't need the more expensive 2GB model unless you wanted to do multi- monitor or larger than 1080 p resolutions

You're not going to notice a difference upgrading from your i7 920, so don't do it. Keep your current setup and just grab an SSD and a new video card and call it day. Wait to upgrade the rest until there's something much better to buy. Your cpu is more than enough for any game out there.

You're right and that's a good catch, they're 1156. Note that the 1155 and 1156 motherboards and CPUs are not interchangeable. Putting a 1155 chip into a 1156 board will cause major problems and so will putting a 1156 chip into a 1155 board.

Oh Hah! Zanklot beat me to the punch!

However, when it comes to heatsinks the 1155 and 1156 brackets and contact surfaces are identical, as the external physical dimensions of the chip and mounting holes are identical. Thus any cooler made for a 1156 before the 1155 existed will fit onto a 1155, they simply won't advertise it on the box, because they made all of their packaging material before the 1155 existed.

So long story short, yes, 1155 and 1156 coolers are interchangeable. No 1155 and 1156 chips/motherboards are not interchangeable.

As I posted above, the batman Zotac is not a lifetime warranty; it is two year warranty. The eVGA batman 580 is a lifetime warranty but it's not "superclocked" and is at reference voltage. (Note that you could overclock it some if you wanted to.)
