New Ivy Brige Build: What do you think? - Page 2

post #11 of 82
stick with the i7 and downgrade to a 670 4GB. but if you can grab a 680 4GB go for it.

edit: make sure the rams will fit with any of those cpu coolers. the other thing to look for is (which i think will not be a problem with those coolers) are their widths. it might be too close to the gpu when installed. my scyth mugen prevented me from installing my gpu in the first pcie slot.

And ditto on the i5 vs the i7. There's no point paying over $100 extra for hyper-threading if you're never going to use it.
Oh yeah I do, thanks tongue.gif. Will blame it on iPod keyboard

Would rather go for a Gigabyte G1.Sniper (review here) ~ or down to a Z77X-UD5H if you don't need the extra OC features, a 3570k if its a gaming rig because the HT on the i7 will not give additional benefits, the Silver Arrow performs slightly better than the D14 but its blown by the Phanteks TC14PE, a 3GB 7950 would be a nicer choice (only 3-5% slower than the 7970 while being significantly cheaper, has also more memory/better memory bandwidth and far better GPGPU performance than Nvidia cards not to mention the much better value), for the PSU there's no reason to go higher than 750W (750W is fine for SLI 670/680/7950/7970), the Rosewill Capstone 750W-M is great, 80+ Gold efficiency, fully modular and based on Super Flower Golden Green internals thumb.gif also for the memory, I would checkout the Samsung's (just get 2x of those) they overclock up to 2400 and more, as for the SSD the Vertex 4 is a great choice and significantly faster than the M4 (through you probably wouldn't notice it), finally regarding the HDD the 2002FAEX hasfour 500GB platters, I would rather look at the Toshiba DT01ACA200 which is far cheaper and has two 1TB platters thus performs significantly faster. thumb.gif Alternatively you can pickup 2x 1TB EZEX drives.

Sorry for crappy formating I'm on my phone.

In world record overclocking the maximus v extreme is number 1 and the z77 oc formula is 2. If you don't plan on using dice or ln2 those boards are overkill. What about an extreme 4? Itll max out ivy on air and water

It has mediocre D-PAK MOSFETs.

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H/D3H are a better choice.

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H/D3H are a better choice.

For 119 dollars who cares. My 89 dollar Pro3 probably has the same ones and I max out my 3770K at 4.9ghz with 3 phase power. You think the extreme 4 is going to overclock less with more?

Motherboard: I'd go with an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 or Extreme6 instead
CPU: If you are primarily gaming, go with the 3570k
Cooling: If you are going to spend that much on an air cooler, just grab an H80i for a sleeker look (would recommend the H100, but your case choice limits your cooling options)
Video Card: I'd go with a 4gb 670 or a 7950 since you are running at 1200p (the extra VRAM would be useful)
Sound Card: In all honesty, onboard audio has vastly improved in the last six years. Getting a sound card these days IMO is a complete waste of money (a good pair of headphones is money better spent)
Power Supply: The SeaSonic X Series X-850 is a great choice, I personally wouldn't change it. Probably would be the last PSU you'll buy for many years.
Memory: Go with the Low Volt 35nm Samsung Ram that can overclock to 2133 without a prob
SSD: Go with a Samsung 830 or 840 Pro instead
Hard Drive: Just get two 1TB Seagate Barracuda's and run them in Raid 0 for $20 cheaper
Case: Cool case, but limits your cooling options IMO
Monitor: For that amount of money, I'd probably look into something different at least a 27" or a used 1440p off of amazon but that's my opinion.

Yeah, but in fact the Gigabyte motherboard would most-likely not get the chip higher in frequency, but it will be FAR more reliable. D-PAK MOSFETs will eventually fail from the high temperature they run at and as Sin pointed out they are not designed for fast switching power deliveries.

You know, you can cheap out on pretty much everything but its not necessarily a good idea ie. you can get a crappy PSU: sure it will work but it will deliver crap current to the electronics and it will eventually fail and blow half of your components with it. etc.

Point is, why buying something that is meh when you can have a great product for the same price?
So please, explain me this because its something I cannot really understand.

BTW, the Extreme4 and Z77X-D3H are both at $135 on Newegg.

And the Gigabyte has accurate voltage readings.

Hi,

Just a quick comment on the audio card -

192kHz is not necessary unless you're recording/editing audio for blu-ray. The spec for bluray DTS HD audio is 96kHz, and this isn't going to change in the near future. These higher sample rates are good for studio work, but they use a LOT of memory, and there's no way the home user will need 196kHz. There are very solid arguments in the pro audio world for not going beyond 96k even in the studio due to increased problems at the extreme sample rates. Every CD you listen to is 44.1/16bit, DVD is 48/24 and blu-ray HD 96/24.

If you're after the best sound the most important consideration is the quality of the digital-to-analog conversion. This is where the most audible errors are introduced, and good converters can reveal more detail, a wider soundstage and better imaging.

Just my 2c...

Stephen
