Need Final Input

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm about to pull the trigger on a new build that is going to work as a Server/HTPC/basic LAN rig. I will be using this to store movies/music and it will also be transcoding on the fly to other devices in the house such as an 360 and PS3. I will also on occasion take this to a friends house or let someone use it to play games on if they come over (I'm aware of its power). I will also eventually put my Xonar STX in there and get an AMP/DAC combo for my main rig or maybe even put a regular smaller size GPU in there so all the HDD bays can stay in there later down the road.

Originally I was going to use this case Lian Li PC-Q08 but I have decided against it as it will be a pain to work in.

So now I'm thinking of the Prodigy (I know, not another prodigy). But it's easy to work in and will allow me to add HDD's easier later on.

I will have 3 HDD's going in there as soon as I get it but I will want to put more in there later on up to its full capacity.

I will be using this mobo ASRock FM2A85X-ITX with the AMD 5800K I mostly like this setup because it's an ITX with 7 sata drives possibilities. I will also be using an Antec Kuhler 920 to cool the CPU

I already have 8GB (2x4) sticks of Samsung RAM that I will be OCing

And this PSU to go with it all SeaSonic X series SS-400FL2

I'd just like any last input for my build before I order it very soon. Any thoughts/comments/questions are welcome.

if you are looking at something as large as a prodigy, you might as well go with a TJ08-E. that will give you the room for xonar + discreet GPU when you get around to it. not sure if you realized it, but prodigy is ITX meaning you can have either the gpu or the xonar, but not both. whereas the TJ08-E is mATX so you can have both for about the same size as the prodigy.

Not to mention the TJ08-E looks better.

Instead of making a new thread I'll just re-bump this one up again with my newer idea. I have decided to go mATX now, below are the changes.

I have decided to go with a 3570k with ASRock Z77 Pro4-M and Fractal Design Arc Mini

I also decided to go with this PSU CORSAIR CX500M

I'm trying to keep these main components at around the $450 dollar mark but I'm about $60 over what I initially wanted to spend but I can't see cutting the cost w/o losing a feature that I want.

I'll still have the same RAM and Antec 920.

So can I just get some final thoughts before I purchase?

you really should pick a PSU from this list

A little late, but going off of Jonny Guru for his 430W for that series Link, it looks to be a decent PSU. I was a little over budget so I decided to cut on the PSU a little bit but still enough for a decent machine.
