New ivy brigde build, first timer, very nervous

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
This is going to be my very first build from scratch and i'm a little nervous. My friends are idiots so this forum would be the only place that I can get any advice or constructive criticism.

So this is what I just ordered from the Egg.

Intel Core i5-3570K
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB (for storage)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136769

CORSAIR H100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181017

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131821

This is what I have laying around.

Corsiar Force Series 3 60GB (boot drive)

Corsair XMS3 8GB 1600MHz 8-8-8-24

OEM Radeon HD 5870

I plan on a nice oc and gaming. After I sell my i7-980 from my old computer I plan on getting a new Radeon HD 7xxx for some good 1920x1080 gaming. I can use any advise on what iv'e got or on first time system building. I have taken apart and put back together computers but never bought everything from scratch. Thanks guys please don't flame me to hard tongue.gif.

You should've posted before you pulled the trigger! You had a 980 already man, you should've just waited for Haswell/Broadwell. Unless you really wanted it that bad there was no point in getting a 3570k other than e-peen. You should've saved that money you spent on all that stuff and got a GTX 680.

Then you could've had everything max no problem, for another 2 years or so. Just my opinion on it though. If you can cancel the order do it now and just get a 680. Again, my opinion.

Also welcome to OCN!

The i7 980 I have is the locked version and was looking for something fresh (usb and pcie 3.0). And the only thing that was using my i7 980 to its full potental was my blu ray to hd mp4 conversion I do in my spare time.

Don't worry about the 980 at all---the IB/277 setup will have resale value for awhile, and with a wider market.

But you could have saved $140-200 on a nice air cooler and different motherboard, then had better (or same) overclocking on air with less noise. Now you are looking at 7870 instead of a 7970. mad.gif (lols)

But maybe you want to take some photos of your setup, and this will be very fabulous. What kind of case are you using?

From what i remember none of the first gen i7s are locked.....you could easily get that 980 to 4ghz. Is the computer that the 980 came with OEM?

I could be wrong but my 980 (not the extreme edition) can be oc but the multiplier is locked to the point that you can only achieve a 4.0 and not higher.

When I was doing research for a z77 board. I did have my eye on an asus, and the sabertooth seemed to have god reviews and warranty. I almost got the that really nice noctua d14 but I didn't have any low profile ram.

My my case is the corsair carbide 400r. Why do you say 7870 instead of the 7970?

You're in the SF Bay, right? (YAHH Giants.)

MicroCenter has these prices:

$190 3570K mad.gif
$150 ASUS P8Z77-V (w/ CPU) mad.gif
$80 NH-D14 at Directron.com (RAM excuse? No no no nononononono..) mad.gif

That's $180 in savings that you put onto a video card. Plus, if MicroCenter had any decent Gigabyte boards in stock right now you might save another $20 on a UD3H/UD5H and had a no-doubt extreme overclocker. The Sabertooth is ~fine but offers nothing special in performance.

Don't worry, your new setup is fine and will be raaaaale pretty inside.

(Really, there are several choices in low profile RAM for ~$50, namely the Samsung 30nm---a.k.a. "Greens". Plus you look smarter using those.)

I don't know you but I think I like you !!GO GIANTS!!
