New member need some help with i5 3570k system

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I saved money to build a new system, my budget around $1500. Since I don't have enough space for a full tower case, I decided to go with micro atx case due the space limitation in my room.

I chose ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 + Intel 3570K processor, but I need recommendations for the case, PSU, RAM, HDD, SSD and Video Card and cooler.

I am planning to run WIN 8 + Ubunto, I heard that ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 have problems with WIN 8 is that correct ?

I need your recommendations for the rest of the parts, mostly the system going to be for school work ( word, excel, browsing, LTspice), I rarely play games, and occasionally video editing and photoshop designing.

So far what I am sure about :

I updated my list

MB: ASUS P8Z77-M LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
RAM: SAMSUNG 8GB 1600Mhz
CPU Cooler: Corsair H80i or H100i
Storage: WD Blue 1TB
Case: SilverStone Temjin Series TJ08B-E
Optical Drive: ASUS Black Blu-ray Burner
VGA: EVGA 02G-P4-2660-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB
PSU: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold or corsair
SSD: Samsung 840 pro 128GB

Is there any conflict or problems my configuration?

Links are broken. Save money don't get the Asus MoBo, get a ASRock Extreme4, MSI GD55, or a Gigabyte Z77X UD3H. No need for 16GB, 8GB will do you fine, if your not doing heavy video editing, 3D modeling etc. Rarely play games? Get your self a 7770, it's cheap and a excellent card. If you don't plan on overclocking don't get a CPU cooler, especially not one at that price. A True Spirit or Hyper 212 would be far better. Get the Caviar Blue or Seagate Barracuda, as they're both cheaper, and are pretty much the same thing. Pick up yourself a good quality 550W PSU, as you'll need no more than that. Pick up a Samsung 830/840 / Intel 330 / Plextor MS5, whichever is cheapest. Also, your not going to fit a H100 in that case.

What's your budget?
Where are you from?
Do you need an OS peripherals?

Answer me these, and I'll get build more suited to you up. smile.gif

Ya a H100 rad will barely fit with clearance in a mid tower, let alone a microatx case

Also, make sure all other components will fit in your case, because iirc most CPU heatsinks such as 212+ will not fit in a microatx case. Your really not saving money with a 99$ microatx case

Both mid-towers:

COOLER MASTER HAF 912 69.99$
NZXT Phantom 410 99.99$

You don't need an i5 for what your doing, the i3 is fine, you could even get away with an AMD CPU.

Will you be overclocking? I doubt you'll be able to fit a cooler in a ITX case.
