For starters, I would say swap that for the 3930K. They are essentially the same chip. The 3960X is just an excuse to charge you an extra $400 for some extra cache that you won't use and a few extra MHz of clock speed which can be had easily with a couple of button presses.

Or better/sexier! biggrin.gif

For example 2 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSDs in RAID 0. drool.gif

I'd like those, but digital storm doesn't offer them. :/
if you don't choose a SSD you can get them separate. biggrin.gif

That is a z68 mobo, the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme is X79.

I could set you up with a great PC for about $2k+ less lol.

Plus, building a PC is a learning experience. I have learned plenty from my first build! It would be much more rewarding. Plus, how will you know your PC or its true potential of you don't mess with the ins and outs your self start to finish? biggrin.gif

i've also never had a DOA...ever.

Rookie mistake. I knew maximus didn't sound right. Its the rampage IV i meant. I'm also a bit sketchy on the overclocking & how hard it is on the components. I'm into automotive & I know how much of a PITA it can be, although fun. This will be primarily a work computer so I'm not looking to make it a "fun" experience if you get what I mean. I want it to turn on every day without hesitation. Not looking to benchmark or anything really.

I know, but I'd rage if something was DOA. Also, I'm very impatient. I'm just scared to build something that expensive. If it were $2k then I'd try it out, but over $5k mehhh. This will be my work computer mainly, so I'd like a legit company to build it. My personal computer I'm getting next year will be my learning build though.
Work you say? But you are getting two 680s? lol Get a dual CPU build. two xeons! What kind of work?

Monitors - Dell 2711's

Engineering..Navisworks, Revit, AutoCAD, TSI, SolidWorks, ANSYS, etc....some Steam games as well...cough cough...

WHYUMAD, my friend, I understand why you have insecurities on building a PC yourself. Please understand, however, not a single person in this thread who has suggested that you build it yourself is trying to condescend. I think they respect you too much to placate your silly idea of purchasing such an expensive PC and not building it yourself. I promise you, I PROMISE, if you run into a hangup that you can't find the solution to on this very website, or, for a safety-net for myself because I'm lazy, on google, I will drive down to New Orleans myself and help.

Allow me to ascertain that you have access to the internet. And these components. Build it, you'll be fine, even if it's scary at first. No shame in being scared about this sort of thing, by the way, and if someone says there is, I'm the first victim even having build 6 systems (starting when I was 9!).

You won't look back.

Overclocking with newer components, especially highend stuff like what you are planing is incredibly easy. lol As for wear on components, I wouldn't really worry. It really depends on the overclock. Higher voltage and especially heat usually relates to lower life. But, you should be fine for a long time with a mild OC. Since it is your work PC you shouldn't really try to go for high clocks, I'd do a nice mild one, depending on your chip ~4.2-4.6GHz...if you even want to that is. I'd leave the clocks stock for full stability.

The real fun in PCs for me at least is building the PC and learning about everything. Overclocking is kind of boring to me. It takes time too as you need to tests for stability which takes hours of just having a program stress your PC lol. I like knowing the configuration of my PC to a whole and being able to troubleshoot any issue that arises because I built it and know what can cause what...also I have the forum and Google at my disposal lol.

I would highly suggest a dual xeon build rather than the planned single CPU. Those programs would benefit greatly from more threads. Also a workstation gfx card, not a gaming card. You can game fine on workstation cards btw.

And I believe you are getting 64GB of RAM right? You better be at least for that $. biggrin.gif

Really, turning it up a couple of multipliers will never harm anything. And you can buy Intel overclockers policy for about $35 which will insure you against any CPU damage from overclocking, although the chances of damaging anything when all you're doing is turning the multi up a couple of levels is essentially zero.

What are you doing by the way? I have not seen any situations, so far, which would take advantage of the extra cache.

Alright, so if I agree to this, what would everyone recommend for the build based around:

3960X
Rampage IV Extreme
Corsair Dominator Platinum 64GB

Those components I'm pretty set on. Everything else is up in the air, keyboard, monitor setup, & all.

CAD & 3D modeling.

Will you be doing much simulation or anything? Because outside simulation CAD won't be particularly CPU heavy and I can't see the cache making much of a difference anyway. Cache only really shows it's head in synthetic benchmarks which are engineered to run out of cache, it just doesn't happen in real life that often if at all.
