What's your opinion on my Switch 810 Build

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am in the research phase of my build and I am looking for opinions of what I have so far.

Case: NZXT Switch 810 Matte Black
CPU: Core I7-3820 (a hold off cpu for Ivy-Bridge E)
Mobo: Asus Sabertooth X79
Memory: 32Gb G.SKILL Ripjaw Z Series
Power Supply: Corsair 1200 watt
GPU: XFX 7970 Double D FX-797A-TDBC
ODD: LG Black 14X BD-R

Cooling: 13 * XIGMATEK XSF-F1252 eXTREME Silent
Extreme RX360 Watercooling Kit
Scythe 12 Fan Controller

Any input is appreciated Thanks thumbsupsmiley.png

as it stands with a few other extras price is 2672.45 and I would love to stay under 2800.

Looks good but for the ram I can only recommend Samsung memory since they oc like beast and 1200w is overkill even if your planing on buying a second 7970 later, 1200w is 3 way sli/ crossfire x. Sidenote are you water cooling the gpu

No I'm not cooling the GPU but I would like too. Just not sure if it will fit into my price and if the one rad will be enough to cool everything.

I got the 1200 because I do eventually want to add 2 more 7970 for 3 way crossfire. Just my cost restrictions at the moment aren't allowing me to buy the 2 other cards when I purchase the build

I have currently own 2 * 2tb drives and a 1tb drive for data. I also have a 120gb kingston hyperx ssd for OS.

Extra's include HT OMEGA Claro II soundcard, an external card reader and some NZXT Sleeved lighting. I think I could push my budget to 2900. What would recommend for the GPU and would the RX360 in push pull be enough?

I just added the koolance 7970 waterblock for my GPU and some compression fittings with some more tubing and I am still within my budget.

Would the RX360 be enough for this setup?

An RX360 will cool a CPU and two GPUs. If you put a 240 in the bottom, it'd get better temps, but its not 100% necessary.

I want to put the 240 in the bottom but that wouldn't happen right away I would eventually add in it at a later date

For what I will be buying initially the 360 will be more then sufficient I feel. Eventually in time will be adding bigger and better rads to accommodate my other add ons such as crossfire x and such. After some quick research i found that I would have to mod the mounts to get a 60mm 420 to fit such as the phobya g-changer. I am happy with the reviews of the 360 and I feel that plus a 240 rad in the bottom will be sufficient. I will be looking into building an external box for two large radiators or one 9*120mm rad after I complete the build and am able to save up money again.
