Hey all first of all i been getting so much info and help from this forum from years ago and decided to finally join. Thank you for such useful infos!

Now my advice im looking for is for 3 rigs i need to make. And im not really familiar with overclocking and cooling but been learning alot past couple of weeks. Also english isnt my first language so please excuse my bad grammar and spelling time to time.. SO>>>>!!!

I Started out with a 2 duo core e8400 lol than 1366 i-930 than decided to upgrade than wounded up building 3 PC because my nephews sold me some nice parts for cheap. Than i went computer crazy and kinda fell in love as a hobby, just like hooking up my car lol.

I need to build 3 PC Desktops. 1 somewhat GREAT computer for home studio (making beats/music/recording/cubase/ableton) needs realy fast loading of programs so going all ssds + 1 2tb HDD?. Lowest latency if possible! and 1 PC above average computer for games,movies,internet everything BUT music. 3rd one is for my parents just to watch dvds and youtube and etc.Doesnt need much help ill use leftover parts.. lol

Which part to sell and which part to buy?

Any help or input would be appriciated. Thank you in advance!

Parts im working with on windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

Mobo's:
Gigabyte ga x58a ud3r (1366)
Gigabyte x79s up5 wifi (2011) Ordered!
Wofldale D1777 something??

CPU's:
1x1366 Socket i7 i-930

4 x Western Black Cavier 7200rpm 2tb 3 new 1 used (2 weeks)
1 x Western 5400rpm 1tb used
2 x External Hardrive 2tb each used

Debating to sell these and get 512 mbs? All brand new just open box for display from store. Should i just use them or sell and get 512gb's?
I heard samsung pro 840 is best ssd.
Any advice on how i should set two PC with these ssds/hdd or selland rebuy? And maybe throw 1 ssd in the old e8400 PC? or is the western black enough?

GPU's:

2 x Zotac GTX 680 AMP 2gb Ordered!
1 x NVIDIA GTC 660 Ti 3gb
1 x Asus GTS 450 1gb? 2gb?
1 x 6890? Radeon? 1gb?

Going SLI on GTX 680 on 1 pc and probably selling the 660ti or gts 450

PSU's:

Memory Rams's:

Currently on i930=6 x 4gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 (24gb maxed X58 board)

Debating to buy for the x79s MOBO either 64gb ram MAX:
8 x 8gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz (c10 model) 10-10-10-27 (can get it much cheaper than the model (c9) 9-9-9-24 reason choosing this c10 model not c9)
or
8 x 4gb Corsair dominator gt 2133mhz ? Is this compatible? Is 64gb ram at 1600mhz > 32gb at 2133? Vice versa?

For the 3930k + x79s board


Case:

Rosewill THOR V2 Bought it for my gigabyte x79s MOBO
Irwin full tower thats sitting my gigabyte ga x58 ud3r
Some huge red full tower

Fan:
Only stock fan and Coolermaster h20? the heatsink and fan and 4 fans currently on each cases.

Monitors:
3 x 32 inch samsung LED 1080p 60hz 120CFM
3 x 40 inch samsung LED 1080p 60hz 120CFM
1 x 55 inch samsung LED 3D 120hz 240CFM

I want to go water cooling route. Can someone explain or let me know what i can buy to keep 2of the cases in stable temputure with overclocking?

Planning to OC the 3930k to around 4~4.4?ghz ish and the i-930 to 3~3.8?ghz ish or more if possibly stable. And IDK what to do with the e8400..It does run stable lol..Probabaly not overclock it. Just make it useable for my moms and pops.

ANY INPUT or advice would be so much helpful.

Thank you!!
