Gaming Rig Review? asap

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm building a rig in a few days, and I'd like to double check if these parts are compatible. And if the PSU is enough for OC'ing the i7, thanks.

Or if I am missing something.

I'd make a couple of changes.

Get the newer Seagate 1TB drive, which is also cheaper than whatever one you picked:

Get MX-4 instead of AS5:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186038

Get a 3770K instead of the 2600K:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116501

Get the better Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128544

I'd also pick a cheaper GTX 670, or at least one that had a better cooler - there's not a lot of point in paying extra for the FTW card since it doesn't have any special cooling and you can easily overclock even a reference card to those speeds.

You can also save quite a bit by getting the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro, which also has a double-thick radiator like the H80 (and is only $50 after rebate now).

and get this card better cooling and higher clock plus its cheaper http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127685
and like the guy posted above get the 3770k over the 2600k and the mobo and hdd he linked, a ssd would be nice if you can fit it in there
mx-4 a little cheaper here http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=FAN-MX4&c=FR&pid=a4934189ad931ea8397b4501a235f10e60f41fee6618dc5b37781b705ea41128
you can also get this the h60 for 54.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7335485&CatId=499

As Forceman pointed out, MX-4 is a great choice, as is my personal favorite, Noctua NT-H1. These two are in my opinion, the best performing thermal solutions available today. AS5 was great for a while, but it's since been supplanted by superior (and cheaper) pastes.

Also, if you're not dead set on Nvidia, I recommend going AMD. It's just a superior value proposition right now. A comparable 7950 is roughly $100 cheaper than the 670 (and comes with upcoming AAA games instead of free in-game money, though I'm not sure if you play those F2P games). For the amount you're plunking down, you could get a 7970, which is closer to the 680.

Lastly, at the 40-60 price range, I recommend that you take a look at Cooler Master's case offerings. They're well-built and have pretty good expandability/modability and cooling capabilities.

That RAM is 1.65V at DDR3-1600 though, I'd find something that is 1.5V at that speed.

You can, but why buy higher voltage RAM when there is plenty of 1.5V RAM available? Or even 1.35V RAM, for that matter. I'd spend the extra $10 just so I didn't have to explain it when it came time to re-sell it.

Samsung Green is 1.35V IIRC, at 1.5V you can run it at 2000 or lower timings thumb.gif

Why 2600K? get a 3770K
Why GTX60OC? Get a 7970 GHZ @ 3GB
CHANGE THE H80 with H100i
Get either Asrock extreme 6 or Gigabyte GA-Z77-UD3H
Ram: Get a pair that runs on lower Voltages @ 1600 Vengeance runs at 1.5V
