Review my Dedi Folding Rig Components!! [Itching clicking Finger]

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I will be swapping out my current sig rigs mother board for the folding rig and I ordered a new one. The current mobo has on board video so the dedi folding will only be cpu folding and will consume less power


H100 from Amazon $105 (Think its enough to keep current clocks & temps before 75/80c?)
Source 210 Elite from Newegg $50
Corsair CX430w from Newegg $45 + 5.99 s/h -15% - $10 MIR = Nice
Samsung RAM from Microcenter $40 (its 1600mhz but over clock like a champ, see link)

http://www.overclock.net/t/1210482/amazon-samsung-2x4gb-low-voltage-ddr3-1600-kit-for-40-ocing-to-2200


Side Note:
Asus P8P67 Pro Rev 3.0 from Ebay $75 to replace existing
500gb HDD that was laying around..
2500k from someone $150ish
or
Ivy Bridge $340

I wouldnt mind spending the extra money if it will be a good improvement over my 2600k for folding.. Yes i would use a brnad new Ivy for a dedi folding rig because I cool like that. If the chip isnt amazing I will get a 2500k for my sig rig and use the 2700k for folding.

Folding Rig Total = $315 then Processor so another $150 to $340 lol

I think its a good price for a good cause..

May need an extra fan or 2, but we will see what temps are like..

I will give it an hour or so before I pull the trigger and start ordering parts.. let me know

Thanks Fellow Folders!

Looks good to me. I'd let someone who knows more about Ivy Bridge than I do comment on the processor choice, but I can't imagine Ivy Bridge will bring a gigantic improvement, so that extra $150 is pretty subjective.
