new build - excel models

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, here's my first attempt to build my computer for work, I thank you in advance for your thoughts!

I'll use it primarily building and running excel financial models (multi-period/sheets 80 meg models) incl monte carlo (Excel 2007). Secondary functions are routine word and powerpoint docs, with the usual internet browsing. I use two screens (dell 2711).

I won't play games here neither watch TV, movies or listen to music. I have a life, but I use other systems for that smile.gif lol

I couldn't find much as to what is the best build for computation hungry models in excel 2007, this is the best build I've come up with my research:

CPU: Intel CPU Core i7 3930K BX80619I73930K

Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL

SSD: SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256D/AM 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Upgrade Kit

HDD: Dell WD6000HLHX 600GB 3.5 inch Raptor SATA Hard Drive (no raid)

Sound: Creative Soundblaster card

video - XFX Radeon HD 4670

PSU:Corsair CMPSU-750AXUK Professional Series Gold 750W

CPU cooler: NH-D14 SE2011

Apart from the general question whether the overall build will be fast and stable running excel scenarios, I'm wondering if I really need the large NH-D14 or if the PSU will cut it for the parts installed.

Thanks a lot for your help !

Cheers, Sergio

looks good to me, the PSU will definitely be able to push all of that, but I'm not sure why you added in a sound card as you won't be doing any multimedia on this system as you said it's strictly for work productivity. Anywho that system is definitely going to get you to where you want it to do...with ease.

Depending on your budget I'd also look at swapping your GPU to one of the 7000 series, I know our IT department is looking at using them with OpenCL to cut down the time some of our activities take and future proofing never hurts.

You're totally right about the sound card, i'll use the mobo audio and use that cash for the 7000 after I research the use of openCL !
thanks again for your great comments thumb.gif

what is the case ?

for the power supply question your right the 750W pro is overkill for that since the videocard 4670 is for home theater & does not even need a power supply connector, a 430W 80+ ~ $37 is enough for that build, unless you change your videocard to something more power needed or sli/xfire videocard

Hi, thanks for that, I'll certainly shave off the extra cents on the psu!
I'd like Cosmos 2 but while I count the pennies I may end up with the Cooler Master HAF X or the Antec 1200 Twelve Hundred V3 Black Full Tower, not sure if full ATX is an overkill and a CM HAF 922 mid tower is sufficient for this build?
post #7 of 16
the cosmos 2 is a full tower build with xl motherboard size, custom watercooling unit & lots of hard drive, based on your specs 1 hdd 1 ssd, there's no need to go for $300+ dollar case, any mid-tower chasis @ $100, check out the nzxt 410 phantom, it has all the goodies you would want, not too big, has enough fan options, watercooling 240 rad options, window sides, enough space inside to work with at a budget friendly price...


Note the core i7 3930K has no heatsink included put antec 620 ALc in that build!

thanks, I'll look at the mid size range then, cosmos what soooo cool though redface.gif
I guess you propose the alternative of antec 620 ALc cos the Notcua NH-D14 would be too big for a mid tower chassis?
post #9 of 16
the noctua D14 even fits in a budget CM elite 310, it will also fit my case just check height clearance I think it will fit phantom 410 no problem, I just give you a adv. close loop water cooling as an option only but D14 is much better but with a bulky looks.

yes cosmos 2 is cool no doubt , it weighs 22kilos for the case with nothing in it, if you want you can make this case as your dumbbells, just kidding

I'm not sure if the Ripjaws fits under the Noctua, but I'm sure the Sniper series memory does. There is a lot of overkill in this build, and that's awesome. The power supply is fine! You really going to try to save 10-15 on a build like that, by going to a cheaper brand or less power? The larger overhead in the power rating will give your system plenty of overhead over the course of the years of ownership. The capacitors in the power supply all eventually degrade, decreasing the efficiency and power output, and so they get less effective over time. I wouldn't go anything less than 650, and using a 750 from a power supply series that is made by, possibly, the most reputable manufacturer (Seasonic) is a great choice, especially because you can usually find it for under $100 on sale, and often with a rebate bringing it down to about 80 or less.

Keep the power supply the same, double check the RAM, buy, assemble, enjoy.
