First Project: Vampire

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
My first time building a rig from nothing, It will be done in 6 months hopefully.
The name "Vampire" have came from 2 major reasons, first, it will be all black&red extirior,
second, it will suck lots of energy (Credit for Kyismaster for that freaking sick line).
As I know myself it will take lots of time, but I hope it will be finished asap.


Compont List:
Seasonic Silver 850W - Ordered
CoolerMaster HAF922 - Arrived!
LG DVD-RW x24 - Ordered
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 - Ordered
Intel Core I5 2500K - Ordered
Noctua NH-D14 - Arrived!
Crosair Vengeance 1600Mhz 8GB - Ordered
Gigabyte HD7970 OC Edition - Ordered
Samsung F3 1TB - Owned



*Note - Currently the red LED fans are not in stock here (or cost more then 35$ each) so it will have only 1 red LED for now.

Yeah, I will get another 7970 within 6 months after completing the rig, it will make my electricty bill higher I'm sure.
*Edit: May I add-up "Is it called vampire, because it sucks a lot of energy" with a credit? It's a freaking sick line, for a freaking sick build thumb.gif

I've been talking with some fellow gamers and they told me that 2 overclocked 7970 and a 3570K overclocked would be drawing more then 750w, should I go 800~850?
I have also went picking up the HAF and D14, but they will only get it at tuesday.

Use a PSU calculator. GIYF.

I just used one, it says that 840 will be enough if I overvoltage the cards, I think I'll be getting 850+, How is the FSP EPSILON 80+ 1000w? I can get this at the same price of Seasonic S12D 850w.
Yet, I saw it provides less Amps in 12V then the S12D.

the s12d is a more popular choice. 1000W is a bit overkill, don't you think?

I was just going to edit my post, I saw that this FSP PSU is crap, well, if it wasn't then I would have taken it for 3$ more.
Anyway, I found the problem, as long as I don't over voltage the 7970s I could get along with a 750w and to have room for couple more HDDs and SSDs, if I'll ever need some.
If I'll get an extra 35$ I would go 850w.
