Please double-check my build before ordering - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Get the k anyway it's around the same price and you'll be glad to have it unlocked in the future...

Go with a WD10EZEX for the HDD, althrough being a Blue it's WD's fastest consumer drive, it's the only 1TB drive from WD that has a single platter.

As an alternative for the case there's the Corsair 200R.

All looks good to me. Just a couple of minor things:

- I wouldn't get a Corsair PSU after the trouble I (and multiple other users) have had with their service, I just don't like to support companies like that. I'd go for Antec/Seasonic/Enermax, although I have no particular reason to believe their service would be any better since I've never needed to use it - I just have a personal dislike of Corsair after the way I've been treated by them. Also, you don't _need_ 600w for that build, but I guess it gives you plenty of room for a future extra GPU or something like that. You might be able to save some money by going down to 500w or so if you're sure you won't need headroom for future expansion.

- You could get a Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H for very similar money to that motherboard, and I know MSI have slow RMAs wheras I believe Gigabyte are pretty well regarded for service, so I'd tend to go Gigabyte, you also would then have an mSATA port on the board which can be used to accelerate the hard disk by adding an mSATA SSD for caching. Whether that is possible with your budget, I am not sure, but I really think an SSD is pretty much an essential in any new build as the improvement in general system responsiveness is massive. I've never tried caching a HDD using one like I'm suggesting here, but I suspect it would give you a lot of the benefits of getting a larger SATA SSD without spending nearly as much (a 32GB mSATA SSD is like $50 or a little more). You do have to put it in and set up the caching _before_ the windows install though, as otherwise you have to wipe and start afresh.

- Even if you don't overclock it, as others have said get the K cpu if it's basically the same price. Even if you never o/c it, you'll retain more resale value.

- That case looks kind of expensive for this build, I just did a built in a Xigmatek Asgard and for the money (super cheap) it's really very nice. I'm sure it's not as nice as the 922, but if you're looking to save money anywhere I can say that I thought the Asgard was superb value for money.

- I agree with your decision to get the Hyper 212+, I just put one in a build and for the money it is great - the stock heatsink would do the job, but it will be noisy. If that wouldn't bother you, then I guess you could use the stock heatsink.
