So I just ordered my new build, do i need a power supply or will my tx850 be good enough?

All right. I will keep my 850 inside my current build and get another psu for the prodigy.

In fact I see so many people using the white version, not complaining about the solid front and airflow.
About the window side panel I am still not sure... I will search and if I found it for sale I will order it. Then just make some try - catch to see if GPU is going well smile.gif

An 850W is way overkill for this, if you are in fact planning another build, use the AX850 in that, and go for a 550-650W PSU for this. Personally, I love the aesthetics of the White Prodigy, but I am going to get a White with the mesh front, and paint the mesh white.
The 3770 is overclockable, around 43x. I will see, maybe save some money and get the k version which can reach about 63x multiplier.

BTW, that board support 2133MHz ram, but that will increase the grand-total biggrin.gif Also I have read that using 2133MHz ram will require some VCCIO tuning, and I am not so deep into it...

lol no, the 3770k cannot do 63x multiplier. But you really want to get it, 3770 non k is a pointless CPU, its like buying a sports car and not opting for a v12 for 1/20th of the price of the car. Sure its a terrible analogy, but its 7am in the morning!

*side note on the 690, 200 rad, 200x20mm fan..

if there were a slimmer 200 it would be perfect, but phobya is 47mm with the bracket and housing (although the specs say "Dimensions: (L x W x H): 245x200x36mm")

PH-35185 Phobya XTREME 200 Radiator

that 10mm got me

I did manage to wedge it all in (literally) its that close.

46-48 limited by cooling. But if you delid the CPU (huge thread on intel cpu forum about this) you can get up to 52 or so.

You want the 3770k for its unlocked multiplier. At this point, you'll be limited by the quality of your chip, as well as thermal load. For most 3770ks, you start needing volts more steeply around 4.8-5.0GHz. This is where most people are happy to get to.

We have our own Delidded club which is very useful http://www.overclock.net/t/1313179/official-delidded-ivy-bridge-club/0_100

Gobbo you will love a 3770k, and if you delid it, you should have no problems. Your only concern will be heat dissipation, which can be taken care of with a high quality air cooler / custom loop or if you want to get more extreme, phasechange

Scotty it is not true that you can reach 50-52 multi through delidding. Delidding does not change the stability or quality of your chip, it only gives more thermal headroom. With his NH-D14, it won't be able to tolerate IB's heatload at 5.2GHz ; let alone the fact that most IB chips can't hit 5.2

I think im going to go this road..

I just ordered
1 x Black Ice® GT Stealth 240 Highest Performance Radiator - Onyx Black
- Fitting Size: 3/8" OD $58.95

1 x Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 240mm $42.99

1 x *** NEW *** EK-D5 X-Res TOP 100 CSQ - Acetal
- Pump: Swiftech MCP655-PWM 12v Water Pump Module
- Fitting Size: No Fittings $173.90

and they should be shipping my Ram with this order..

Im going to try to keep the 140 in the loop too..just because i have it ..lol


hope this plan comes together soon..

ill have 2-3 rads leftover ..whee

Here is how I fit 2x 240 rads. Note that they are black ice stealths, so they are very thin.





Used a shroud so I could put the top fans outside of the case:



Had to make a cut in the bottom to fit the end tank of the front rad.
