post #11801 of 34072
This is a Long post, asking for help/advice on a second build.

I put it in a spoiler in case someone doesn't want to read through it, but I would very much appreciate any help. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hey you clicked to look! Thanks.smile.gif

I should make a thread for this at some point, but since you guys are so experienced I would appreciate any input on it. Since I can't sell my fist delidded 3770k I figured I would just build another system and give the old one I am using now to the kids. I always have two computers, just in case something goes wrong. You can see my current specs in my signature rig, and with this one I figured I would do a few upgrades. I am not really trying to stay in any specific budget, just get a nice system for a reasonable price, but at this point I have a litte more money than time. Anything that saves me time is a good thing.

Anything I should change?

What I already have:
CPU: 3770k overclocked, delidded, lapped

Thinking about:
Case:
NZXT Switch 810 (I was told this is a good choice for two radiators for the H220)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146089

Cooling:
Swiftech H220, (plan on adding a second radiator to cool the GPU as well)
http://www.swiftech.com/H220.aspx

SSD:
Crucial M4 256gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-148-443
or possibly
Samsung 840 pro 256gb (seems faster, but I don't know if it is more reliable or not)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147193

HDD:
Just for backups, extra storage:
Western Digital Black 7200rpm 1tb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136533

Video card: (this is something I am really not sure about)
I know most here think AMD>Nvidia, but I already have a EVGA GTX 670, so I am very inclined to go with another EVGA simply to save time when updating drivers, looking for tech support, warranty, RMA etc. It will definitely be more work for me to have Nvidia in one system and AMD in the other.
The one thing I know for sure is that I want to cool this GPU with the Swiftech H220, and I know nothing about that so I need a card that can be water-cooled without too much trouble. Will be gaming on either 2560x1600 or possibly 3 monitor surround at 1920x1200 for each of the 3.
With that in mind:
EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130787
or more $
EVGA GTX 670 4gb FTW+
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130824
or even more $$
EVGA GTX 680 4gb FTW+ w/backplate
or $$$
EVGA GTX 680 4gb Classified
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130801

PSU
Corsair AX850 (I think it is more than I need now, but not sure what else I will add later)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015&Tpk=ax850

Memory:
G.Skill Trident X 2x8gb, 2400, 10-12-12-31
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231589

Motherboard:
I have a Maximus V Formula, which I am happy with so far. I have heard good things about Gigabyte but then I would have to learn a whole new BIOS, which doesn't seem worth the time unless I am missing something.
Asus ROG MVF
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131854
or save some $
Asus ROG Maximus V Gene
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131830
This is a smaller board which I would put in my old case and move the MVF to the new case, if I go that way.

If you have made it this far, your help is very much appreciated. Thank you!!

So you're going to buy parts for a new build to use? OR buy parts to use the old i7 on a 2nd computer? /me confused

You're after the vrise! I usually try to avoid vrise & would put LLC at a setting equal to or slightly lower than the Idle. Like 1.4V idle -->1.39 - 1.4V load. Gotta watch the transient voltage spikes you can't see when on air & water & playing at high vcore.

i just like the name on that suitcase,

there ...all VonDutch again ..lol

Almost forgot about blackviper's site, that was where I learned most of my OS stripping, great guides!

Any opinions?

The memory overclocks are mainly noticeable in benchmarks, but the performance is increased, you may not notice it the same way in daily things, but it's there. It is just harder to see without some kind of score or number at the end to compare with.

Screw that! tongue.gif Kill those rumors with fire tongue.gif

That is only speculation. 1.65V vdimm is fine with every intel ddr3 platform, & ivy is better than many with vdimm tolerance.
As Ivan points out intel says memory supported is 1600Mhz, & if asked intel tech support will say it isn't safe to overclock a cpu.

Besides, you would rip the head off your cpu for better clocks, but think twice about feeding the memory a bit of voltage?

lol My name is Ivan, for now...unless I need lots of money fast, then I may change it to Ivanna xD

I'm not THAT good as to write a proper guide like some other people here (Sam OCX, kow ciller, cool hand luke, FtW...) but I'll give it a shot if you wish.
Gonna take a while to finish it though, so hang on in there.

I guess ddr3 should be the focus methinks, right?
I'll try to add a reccomended module list and some benchies too, gonna need some help there cause I don't have ALL the ram in the world lol Only got psc, bbse and samsung hyk0 atm.

EDIT: Thanks for the credit guys xD

Solid build. Samsung 840 > M4
4GB 670s > 680s (Imo, not worth the price premium)
PSU ... If you're running dual cards, you should be fine with an 850.
MVF for sure
RAM ; Samsung 1.35v 8GB kit. If needed, buy 2. I can't praise this RAM enough for the pricepoint

Hey you clicked to look! Thanks.smile.gif

I should make a thread for this at some point, but since you guys are so experienced I would appreciate any input on it. Since I can't sell my fist delidded 3770k I figured I would just build another system and give the old one I am using now to the kids. I always have two computers, just in case something goes wrong. You can see my current specs in my signature rig, and with this one I figured I would do a few upgrades. I am not really trying to stay in any specific budget, just get a nice system for a reasonable price, but at this point I have a litte more money than time. Anything that saves me time is a good thing.

Anything I should change?

SSD:
Crucial M4 256gb

or possibly
Samsung 840 pro 256gb (seems faster, but I don't know if it is more reliable or not)

HDD:
Just for backups, extra storage:

Video card: (this is something I am really not sure about)
I know most here think AMD>Nvidia, but I already have a EVGA GTX 670, so I am very inclined to go with another EVGA simply to save time when updating drivers, looking for tech support, warranty, RMA etc. It will definitely be more work for me to have Nvidia in one system and AMD in the other.
The one thing I know for sure is that I want to cool this GPU with the Swiftech H220, and I know nothing about that so I need a card that can be water-cooled without too much trouble. Will be gaming on either 2560x1600 or possibly 3 monitor surround at 1920x1200 for each of the 3.
With that in mind:
EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2gb

or more $
EVGA GTX 670 4gb FTW+
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130824
or even more $$
EVGA GTX 680 4gb FTW+ w/backplate
or $$$
EVGA GTX 680 4gb Classified

PSU
Corsair AX850 (I think it is more than I need now, but not sure what else I will add later)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015&Tpk=ax850

Memory:
G.Skill Trident X 2x8gb, 2400, 10-12-12-31

Motherboard:
I have a Maximus V Formula, which I am happy with so far. I have heard good things about Gigabyte but then I would have to learn a whole new BIOS, which doesn't seem worth the time unless I am missing something.
Asus ROG MVF
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131854
or save some $
Asus ROG Maximus V Gene
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131830
This is a smaller board which I would put in my old case and move the MVF to the new case, if I go that way.

If you have made it this far, your help is very much appreciated. Thank you!!

This is what i would if i were u, then give your current rig to your kids. and i like that idea with the h220 and extra rad
