New Computer please look over comment.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi, all. I'm new to the site. My plan is to overclock my cpu to 5ghz and raid 0 my ssd's. I have a few questions. Is water cooling reliable for long term use? Is the apu wattage high enough for suggested setup? Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I'm a heavy gamer (Wow, LoL, CoD, SC2, D3, Bf3, Company of heroes) and I burn alot of movies. Is my power supply overboard?

that case is not rally worth it to be honest
post #3 of 17
I agree that the case should be re thought unless your just totally in love with it? CM Storm Trooper would be a good option for a handled and water cooling ready pc case

also your power supply seems a bit overkill unless your planning on a whole lot more gear in the future. corsair AX860i or something similar would be good since so efficient and you really only need 850Watts for just one gpu and cpu and not much much power eating other components

wont comment on case, but go intel... the same money will get you probably around 2x performance with ivy bridge and a decent Z77... also, why is your video card 1k? thats along the lines of a devil 13 7990 (the single fastest card in exsistance)

Your build looks good, I would change the ssd to a samsung 128 for a lot cheaper. Your case is worth it it's a great case. Don't let no one decide your case for you, your the one who'm it pleases to look at everyday so buy the case that you like not what others like no matter what the cost. thumb.gif

+1 for intel and dropping that gpu.

then pick up a pair of 7970's and call it a day.

850w PSU is more than enough. (750 would cover it easily tbh)

Go Intel.

Just built my rig and it cost me roughly $2,300 and there's nothing I can't do really. Games are cake, multitasking is great, OC's very well, insane frame rates, quick and snappy feel to everything. I just can't see someone spending all that cash and not going Intel.

I'd go with:

- Ivy : 3770K / SB-E : 3820 / 3930K
- Z77 : Maximus V Extreme, Gigabyte UD5H / X79 : Rampage IV Formula, ASRock Extreme 6/7
- 7950's / 670 FTW's

I'll also agree with the above. I got my 830 on sale and absolutely love the thing.

Maybe look into a refurbished one from CM, but judging from the $1000 gpu, you may be able to afford it thumb.gif
