What are you doing for video card? Are you reusing your 7870 in your sig rig?

Edit: Also, if you have a best buy nearby, you can pick up an h100 for just a little more as they are $103+tax. It should cool better and I'm pretty sure it fits in that case.

My 7970 Lightning will be going in to the Intel build and the 7870's will stay in my Amd rig that is going to the wife. I thought about a H-100 and went back and forth with that and the H-80

From what I've been hearing about IB, your going to want to get all the cooling you can get. Maybe you could even go the route of custom loop for best results. smile.gif

If you live in Dallas, Microcenter apparently has cheaper prices for i5-3570k or i7-3770K processors and a discount on z77 mobos if bought with processor.

Although I'm not sure you care, given you generally ignored cost/performance in favor of flashy overkill with little benefit on almost every component.

Also, no, Ivy Bridge doesn't need more powerful coolers. It's heat problems are not related to total heat output, the problem is localized hot zones and poor heat transfer to the heatsink.

Thanks for you input , I think rolleyes.gif
I did see that at micro center and the wife and I are looking into that today.
As for your comment about the flash I cam only assume your talking about the ram and yes it has a bling factor and it's cas 8 other than that I really don't see what your talking about. The rest of the build is straight forward. I have liked that case since I first saw it and I like Asus mobo's. Is that the flash you refer too?
Once again thanks so much for the tip on micro center and your input

Yeah, the RAM is pretty expensive for what you're getting. And I consider the Sabertooth z77 overpriced.

But I was also thinking of the H80 (air coolers have better price/performance and more importantly noise/performance). An HR-02 Macho would be better, as long as your RAM isn't too tall. Your power supply is also tremendous overkill for a single-card system, and even for a dual-GPU system it's from one of the more expensive brands.

Depending on your purposes, the i7 might be a waste of $100 where an i5 would do just as well. For gaming, that's certainly the case, but maybe you do video encoding or some other application that can make use of hyperthreading.

I like Corsair cases though. You might also look at the 550D is noise is a concern for you. And in retrospect good choices for storage and DVD-burner.

I agree that the psu is up there on price but after owning the 750 I just love the seasonic. I could just go with another 750 for 150.00 I think. I will check out the other items you suggested.
Thanks thumb.gif
