Build check before i hit the buy button

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'd like to thank everyone on the forum who has helped me over the last couple months with my system design. Like the title I'm going to be ordering it today finally and am checking to make sure I'm not messing something up!

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131792

CPU: Intel i5 2500k - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 1600 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145347

Vid card: MSI Radeon 7970 -http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127645

SSD: Samsung 830 128G - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147134

PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 -http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021

Cooler: Corsair H100 - Modded with - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185060

All inside a Coolermaster HAF 932 -http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119213

95% designed for games

Single monitor with plans for a double or triple monitor in future. 16gb RAM cuse I do VMs for work. Picked the watts on PSU for growth into a Liquid cool system.

Mainly double checking I'm not messing something up or missing anything.

Looks fine to me!
You could use a corsair 650 to save cash.

You might want to consider buying an 8gb 2x4gb memory set instead, or at least ordering two separate 8gb sets. This way you won't lose OC potential by having all 4 memory slots filled, or at least be able to send one kit back if it impacts your OC more than you're comfortable with.

Does the i5s mem control mess up on a OC with 4 dimms? I thought that was a Bulldozer issue frown.gif

If i remember correctly, the mem controller issue exists for the Nehalem chips and newer.

Your build looks almost exactly like mine. Good luck with the ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3, I just had to RMA mine =(
