Pretty sure I'm making the jump

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
From AMD to Intel.

As much as I like AMD, it just keeps falling short.

After I finally find a 680 in stock (thinking either This or This) I'll buy the parts. I'd pretty much be using what I currently have with the exception of mobo, cpu and memory.

How do these look for my first intel build?

Mobo
Newegg

CPU
Newegg

Memory
Newegg

I'll admit, the socket numbers and what not kinda confused me at first. Given that I usually skip over anything pertaining to intel.

You sure you don't want to go with a Z77 chipset? It was kind of developed for the IB processors.

Triple and quad channels are supported on the 1366 and 2011 socket boards, not the case with 1155 - mainstream boards.

See, that's what I mean. I'm admittedly ignorant to intel.

I'm sure I would.

There is a z77 version available if you don't need more then 2 PCI-E 3.0 slots.

The sniper is pretty good ram, the ram i have is Ripjaw X but it does 10-11-10-30-2 2133

ummm how much do you have to spend?
I would suggest good cooling for that ivy bdrige like the Phantek with a third fan, H-100 or custom water loop.

It will, at least all the info out there says so.
But the LGA 2011 is an enthusiast plataform with a heavier price tag and somewhat overkill for most users.
Unless you need it or feel like spending money, I would go with a Z77 + IB.

I've never had any experience with a Sabertooth board but I do really like Asus. Seems like a good board but I'm not sure about all that shielding.

I honestly can't give a good reason, I'm just a 'latest and greatest' kinda guy. Would quad channel be that much of a benefit of dual? All I've ever used was dual rolleyes.gif

I haven't really decided how much I have to spend, especially since I'm looking to buy a car as well lol. I'd be using the same cooling that I have with my current setup which is a XSPC RX360 kit. I like the ROG line but something about that little board throws me.

I'm thankful for all the input already, I guess I've got some research ahead of me
