[Build Log] 3930k + 7950

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm kind of new to posting, I've watched a lot of threads for a while, but this will be my first official build log. A few of these parts I am transferring over from a current build I have, but I'm revamping the system by adding an actual "color scheme" to fancy it up a bit. Here are the parts that will be in the final build.

CPU: i7-3930k (got through Intel Retail Edge last summer)
Motherboard: ASRock X79 Extreme6/GB (already own)
RAM: 4x4 GB Samsung Wonder RAM (1600 MHz stock, not sure what I'll overclock to. Suggestions on frequency/timings/voltage?)
HDD/SDD: 2x128GB Crucial M4 in RAID 0, secondary Patriot Pyro 120GB, Hitachi 2 TB 7200 RPM (already own all)
PSU: Antec High Current Gamer 900W (already own, might get a modular Corsair AX series in the future)
GPU: PowerColor 7950 reference (just got recently to get Crysis 3 and BioShock Infinite, might buy another)
Case: NZXT Switch 810 Black (probably getting this week)
Cooling: Corsair H100i (not comfortable enough for custom loop yet)
Mouse: Logitech G9x (already own)
Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K60
Monitors: 2 X ASUS VS247 (sides), 1 x ASUS VE247 (middle)

This will be a red/black/gold theme, mostly red and black with the gold simply being the caps on the motherboard. I'm thinking of adding some red Antec TriCool fans throughout the case for added lighting effect. I am planning on getting the new case and transferring everything over this week (I have a Chaser MK-I case currrently that kind of clashes with everything) so I will post pics as the new parts are added. Any suggestions for improvement on accessories I don't already have or easy additions that'll make it look a lot better?

I also may or may not be keeping the tri-monitor setup, so all parts won't rely on that. I will most likely be cutting down to a single VS247.

Got my new case! Some small assembly pics, I was pressed for time so I didn't get to go into as much depth as I wanted.






I really love the Switch. I still have to add some NZXT red LED lighting and some Silverstone red sleeved extensions that I ordered, all should be here over the weekend. I'll post some more detailed pics once they arrive and are installed. I was kind of rushed for time since I was trying to make a Heart of the Swarm midnight release and get my comp all back together before the launch, so please don't make fun for any wayward cable management!

Got my sleeving in and everything's finished! I tried some new Silverstone extensions I found on Newegg and I really like them. All four cables (1 x 24 pin, 1 x 8 pin, 2 x 6 pin) were about $30 shipped.
