Going to be coming here often with questions about my new build so I might as well introduce myself. :P

post #1 of 12

Hey, I'm a Field Tech for a company in PA and finally got the funds for a computer build I can be proud of. Only thing is my previous rigs have been pretty cut and dry so I haven't had anything fancy (not that the one I'm building now is comparable to the people I see on here...). So I came here and signed up hoping to learn from all of the people who take this as a very dear hobby of theirs. I'm still waiting on the rest of the parts from my Employers supply company but this is a teaser... Looking forward to learning from the Overclock community!

I live in Oakdale (West of Pitt) and work for a company in Irwin (South of Pitt). My buddy told me about Micro Center before, they're out in the Philly area? I wish I knew of something on this side of the state like that. I grabbed a DZ77BH-55K, i7-3770k, a Samsung 830 Series (128GB), 32GB of Corsair XMS, and I'm putting it all inside of a HAF X. All of which are on a truck somewhere headed to my office (except the RAM... It's on backorder).

I grabbed a multi-port fan adapter just in case my controller built into the h100 doesn't work right. The adapter* runs at 100% which is what I want my fans at when I'm on. The RAM is Corsair XMS3 1333mhz, 4x8GB, from what I've found (which isn't much) I should be able to Intel XMP this ram to 1600mhz.

16 GB ramdisk for whatever game I'm in the mood for that day. smile.gif More or less I couldn't find any benchmark results with ramdisk that suited my questions so I wanted them answered myself.
