[Build Log] The Griffin mITX FT03-MINI powerhouse - Page 3

post #21 of 113
Thread Starter 
I should clarify that I don't actually intent to hit the 5ghz mark on the chip but 4.4 ish would be ideal I had planned on going with the lian lan q08 and was about to place my order with new egg when I got the email from solverstone about the case release date I may have to pick a different card

Also I'm rethinking the theme and considering putting tie fighter wings on the sides

4.4 shouldn't be a problem. i think i've read an OCN member hitting that with a Z68 board so the asus Z77 board should be able to hit that easy.

And about the PSU, a 480w i don't think is going to cut it for a 560 448cores + overclocked 2500K, and the case only accepts SFX psu's and i don't think that there is any 600W+ SFX psu available.

Not true.

480 is plenty for a 560, 600 would be enough to SLI them

Does no one read the PSU forum?

Thanks for this! I just swapped out an i5 2500 for an i7 2600k in anticipation of Z77, and also managed to pick up a very quiet H60. I'm trying to decided if I should get this case next week or wait until Z77 ITX boards are out.
