Summer Monster Build...Name TBA - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Hmmm..... I feel like you are wasting a ton of money on parts that you just wont see any benefit from. I mean a 480 rad on a two heat source build? The case.... Not going 2011... I dunno I mean it is your money but definitely not what I would do.


I'd ditch the water cooling in favor of a second 680 for example if it were me. The case if way overkill for what you are doing. I would definitely be going socket 2011.

Oh and stay away from the MSI big bang. The Asus is far better. I own one! It's in my sig rig below

Id go like a
___________________


intel 2011 socket i7 3820 (cool it with a corsiar h100 until you can afford the full water cooling route)

Asus x79 (sabertooth or ASUS P9X79 PRO, Rampage iv if you want the best)

2 GTX680s

1000 watt Psu if you want to stay 2 way SLI
1200 watt if you want to have breathing room for tri sli

16GB of GSKILL z series ram 1600mhz

OCZ vertex 4 128 GB SSD

harddrive, optical drive (whatever you want/need)



For a case I'd go with a haf x or 800d (800d has poor airflow so watercooling might be important here.) IMHO Stay away from the cosmos 2. I just wasn't impressed with it when i saw it and felt it in person. It IS NOT Water cooling friendly.



You will see a MUCH better performing machine with that build than what you posted earlier and although I haven't added it up it shouldn't cost much different either.

appreciate the input.

I definitely run a SLI setup with 680's one day....I would like to put blocks on them, but they seem to do just fine on air. I will mostly use this computer for gaming and a few other tasks. Any particular reason you would say 2011 socket?

heck, i would even like to some blocks on the NB to get some extended OC mileage...




EDIT: just saw your second post. I am interested in the 2011 socket, but not the h100. I actually bought one then took it back and just bought a rasa kit. I want to keep the 1200watt psu for stability. I like the ram choice..and havent heard many things about the OCZ vertex.

For a $3000 budget, I second the notion to go socket 2011.
With how IB is looking, 2011 feels like a much better buy, and the possibility of IB-E early next year on the same mobo.
Definitely get a 3930k though. 3820's are literally a waste of money, no reason to get that over a 2500/2600k and LGA1155. You'd be paying $300 extra for a motherboard with features that don't matter in the long run, LGA2011's star player has 6 cores, not 4.

3930k, RIVE, SLI 680's and you're future proofed like crazy.
Use your Rasa for the 3930k, without a doubt. 680s run more than fine on air, and are quiet to boot--get the hardware now and go swimming later.
Definitely stick with a Crucial M4 ssd--that or a Samsung 830 or Corsair Performance Pro.
Ram doesn't matter too much, definitely not worth breaking the bank on (especially with 8 DIMM slots to fill). Some solid Gskill cas9 1600Mhz, or the Samsung 30nm sticks will suffice.
Psu...if you're sleeving, do yourself a favor and get a Silverstone Strider Gold 1000w or 1200w. No random Y cables to deal with, trust me the AX1200 is a PITA to sleeve. Silverstone PSU's are ATX spec on both ends, all 1:1 cables.

Cases...what can I say, I love my STH10, but I got it before the price hike. The M8 can still fit 4x 360 rads with no modding, and is quite a bit cheaper. But I won't talk you out of the STH10 thumb.gif

All of this sounds pretty good. I actually will have a single 680 by august so, i plan on buying another to have an SLI setup. Today I will mock up another build using the 3930k and RIVE. Will post later....

^Why would you buy a M4 at this time? I mean, there's better drives out there - Like the Intel 520, Vertex 4(?), Plextor PX..

I'd recommend a replacement top for the mcp655. I have used the Bitspower and EK tops, and can recommend both.

As far as I know, you want at least one quad channel memory kit for X79, someone feel free to correct me here.

800D is a great choice, can't go wrong there. (and has excellent resale value if you want to upgrade to an STH10 later on)

I'm not up to date on the state of the 2012 SSDs, but you can't go wrong with an M4. The Vertex 4 isn't much more expensive, I'd say it's up to you.

And do you already have fans for the Rad?
