i7-2600k, Z68 Rig

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm just looking for some quick advice before I start buying the parts for this thing.
Here's a list of the specs below!

CPU: i7-2600k (3.4GHZ) (planning to o/c to 4.2/4.3)
MOBO: Asus P8Z68-V Pro
Case: Corsair 650D Mid-Tower (20.5")
Heatsink: Corsair H100 Liquid Cooling (240mm rad)
Memory: 16GB Corsair Vengeance @ 1600MHz (9-9-9-24)
PSU: Corsair AX850 (850w modular psu)
GPU: EVGA GTX 580 (779mhz) (3GB GDDR5)
HDD: Western Digital 2TB Caviar Black
SSD: Intel 320 (126GB SSD) (Boot/games)

Thanks for taking time to read this. Please provide constructive criticism.



EDIT:
The PSU will be able to handle more than the CPU and GPU under load, and i'm only going to be running 1 GTX580.

Only thing I see wrong with that build is that you can take that CPU to at least 4.8GHz on an H100. wink.gif

I'm thinking about going pretty high actually. I'm going to buy after-market, Spectre Pro's to replace Corsair's crappy stock fans!

Get the Gen3 version of the motherboard. 7970 is faster than the 580 and should be the same price considering it's the 3GB model. If you only plan to OC to 4.3ghz, might as well just get a Hyper212+ and save some money. If you only plan on running one GPU, 850W is plenty overkill. I'm running two 580s on an 850W lol... One GPU you should go for probably around 550W depending on what card it is.

Get the Gen3 version and the 7970 as said above.

That power supply will be enough for 2 cards overclocked.

And you should hit 4.8GHz easy.

Thanks for the advice man! I'm actually going to take the CPU a little bit higher because I appreciate Corsairs LQC.
Also, I'm trying to get a color-scheme going on for my case. So those red 7970's would really mess up my blue/black scheme. :/
