What PSU for X79 Rampage IV Extreme Extended-ATX? - Page 3

1st. If this is a gaming oriented build, than just drop the X79 platform and go for a Z77 board (Maximus V FOrmula maybe) and a 3770K
2nd. If you're gonna' poor some money into this (and by the looks of it you will) you should probably drop the D14, add 30-40$ and get a Swiftech H220 (especially if you're sticking to the X79 platform)
3rd. Get a proper SSD.... prick something from the following... Samsung 840 Pro > OCZ Vector > Samsung 830
4th. The DD cards from XFX are far from the top Tahiti XT implementations, personally I'd pick two Asus Matrix cards
5th. While the above two suggested PSUs are excellent, they are severe overkill for a dual 7970 setup. You don't need and can't use that kind of power with such a system, and unless you plan on adding a 3rd card, such a high output PSU is a pointless expense.


ps. I'd get a Level 10 M mouse and maybe some 2.4Ghz G.Skill ram for color matching purposes. wink.gif

I was looking at the all In one water cooling but wasn't sure how the rad would fit in the case, I've never had one before so I'm completely new at it.. Would the swifttech fit in the case I picked?

Also new at SSD's so wasn't sure what route to go with that... Just wanted it for my OS. Any links to something you think would work for me?

The only reason I went with XFX is because I've had a few cards from them and never did me wrong.. But your not the first to say XFX wasn't a good choice.. So I think I'll go with the ASUS matrix card biggrin.gif

And like I said before thinking of going with 3 cards in the future so ill stick with one of the PSU's I was considering

I missed that part. smile.gif

I'm not a big fan of AIOs, however the H220 changes the game, makes it very hard to argue against. Yes, your case will accommodate it. Though you could change the case as well... it has too much plastic anyway. wink.gif

An SSD completely changes the experience, I wouldn't build a top system such as this one without a nice 120-128GB SSD.
As for recomendations, check above, a Samsung 840 Pro would be my first prick.... a Samsung 830 would be the "money saving" alternative.

Well then, both the LZG 1300 and the X-1250 would make excellent choices.

If I could +rep you I would lol tongue.gif thanks for the help original sin biggrin.gif

About the case, I was thinking of gong with the Antec 1200, I've had one before and really liked it. Just wasn't sure how the E-ATX would fit tho. Maybe ill just stick with that one huh?

And I decided I am going with the h220 biggrin.gif

I'm decideing between the Samsung 840 pro and ocz vector.. Think ill go with the ocz because he 128gb is on sale for 130 biggrin.gif

It's a question of taste really.... personally I'd go with an aluminium tower (something from Silverstone or Lian Li) or if you wanna' stick to catchy/extravagant designs, an NZXT Switch maybe.

The NZXT switch could still mount the h220? I'd be putting it on the top on the inside, yea?
