New i5/asrock build "Project Siege"

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So this is actually my first post on this site. Got shown this site by a friend and decided to jump in and post my upcoming build. So on to the parts list.

CPU: i5 2500k (going to try and overclock it to roughly around 4.5 ghz on air cooling)
GPU: Evga 560 ti 448 classified (one for now but will sli in the future. Going to overclock the core clock to around 900 Mhz)
Mobo: ASRock Fatal1ty P67 PROFESSIONAL (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard (bought this for the features not the name on the board.)
Ram: 8 gigs of Corsair Dominator ram at DDR3 1600 (going to get another set of this down the road as well. Going to try and overclock it as well)
PSU: Corsair 750 watt psu.
1.25 tb of harddrive space. No ssd yet but will be added shortly.
Two DVD RW drives and burners.
Going to put a gts 450 in for dedicated physx till i get my second card for sli.

This is all going into a Rosewill thor v2 case. Some easy mods I'm doing are I purchased some nzxt cable extensions in red. Adding and replacing some of the fns with Red Led fans. Wll add a couple cold cathoid red lights in the very close future.

I'm really excited for this build and look forward to seeing what I can push this rig to do. The is a major upgrade from my old rig. It is running a Athlon II x2 and two gts 450 in sli on 4 gigs of DDR2 (yes DDR2) ram. Would love to hear what you guys have to say about this rig. I will Post pictures as soon as I get parts in. Will keep everyone updated on the status of the build as well.

Peace, Dman24

I, for one, applaud you for that last part. I am using the same motherboard currently, and it has never given me any problems, while overclocking very nicely. There are a lot of people who don't trust Asrock, based on the name alone. At least since I have been using their products, they offer a very nice selection of high quality mobos, for a lot cheaper than other boards with similar features. I remember reading a product review on Newegg (which in itself is sorta laughable, considering most of the reviews on there are very much less than knowledgeable) that warned to never buy from Asrock, because of a bad rating with the BBB. I looked into this, just out of curiosity, and it turns out that they openly state that they have "Insufficient background information."

So, anyway, looks like a nice build, and grats on buying the product, not the name. thumb.gif
