[Build Log] X79 Extreme 11 i7 "The Phantom"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright then so this is my first build log but not my first build. This will actually be my 5th build so i am still somewhat of a novice. Please feel free to post any advice that you feel may make this build better.

Keep in mind that this rig will be used 70% for video encoding and 30% gaming. With that said here is a list of parts, a full costing can be found in my rigs titled "The One"

Case - Coolermaster Cosmos II Ultra Tower
Mother Board - ASRock X79 Extreme 11
Processor - Intel Core i7 3970X Sandy -E @ 3.5Ghz out of the box. (Will be over clocked)
RAM - Corsair Dominator 1866 DDR3 32GB
GPU - 2x Evga GeForce GTX680 in SLI Mode
Sound Card - Asus Xonar 5.1 Gaming card
CPU Cooling - Corsair H100
Power Supply - Corsair 1300w Silent Pro (allowing room for upgrades)
SSD - Intel Series 5 480GB (Boot Device)
HDD - Anywhere from 3-6 Drives depending on size.
Fan Control - NZXT Sentry LX

Case Cooling - Standard (1x 200mm Front Fan, 1x 140mm Rear Fan, 3x 120mm Top Fans, 2x 120mm HDD Fans) I will be adding 2x 120mm GPU Fans and 1x 120mm Mid HDD Fan to the case. All Fans will be controlled by the in builf Fan controler and the NZXT Fan Controller above.

Day 1 - So the first of the parts has arrived. I have the case and my mother board. Have also ordered the following parts today
  • PSU
  • GPUS
  • Optical Drive.
  • Fan Controller
  • Additional Fans

I can 't wait to start putting this bad boy together tongue.gif

I think you'll be better off with the Swiftech H220 instead of the Corsair H100. Orherwise a great build.
