Laptop-stomper [3930K, RIVE, 7970]

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Yeah. This is my way of saying goodbye to crappy AMD laptops for AWESOME INTEL RIGS!

CPU: 3930K
GPU: Sapphire 7970 (Waiting for the DIRECT CU II (Could I CFX with this in the RIVE?) or the MSI Twin Frozr)
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
RAM: 2x 16GB Corsair Vengeance
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 240GB MAX IOPS (OS)
HDD: 2x 600GB Velociraptors SATA II (Storage. RAID 0)
HDD: 2x 3TB Caviar Green (Failsafe storage, backup. RAID 1)
Cooling: H100 with 4 NF-F12 fans.
Thermal Paste: Arctic Cooling MX4
PSU: AX1200
Case: HAF X (Waiting for the Cosmos II)
Monitor: HP ZR30w
Blu-Ray: LG BH10LS30
Mouse: Razer Mamba
Mousemat: Razer Vespula
Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate
Tablet: Wacom Bamboo Fun
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
Headset: Razer Megalodon 7.1
Speakers: (Windows sounds only xD) Logitech X-530
UPS: APC BackUPS 700VA

Budget: None, just no idiocies e.g. OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 MAX IOPS (Which I fell in love with anyways <3)
Using for gaming and photo-editing. NO, NO 2700Ks ALLOWED.

in the most bang for your buck category this is one of the best!
cheaper then 2600k and very capable but it isnt a k so you cant overclock it?(no biggy in my book)
also has ht so it is better then 2500 but cheaper then a 2600 or 2700

No-no! Reason I'm not getting a 2700K or something like that is because I want a 6-core Sandy Bridge CPU. Oh,and I like OCing. How is no multi oc-ing not a problem !?!?!?

yeah OP i don't know what you were expecting. can't really say to change anything, it's the best there is. you don't need a 3930k for gaming or video editing if that's what you're looking for. overkill imo.
