The newbee. Hi

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am new to this so if post this in the wrong place give me a few , I so far have all but two components to at least Finnish everything to do with just running the damn thing smoothly. Now I have been doing ALLOT (gigabytes of research over 15 weeks which has almost paid off) and the only thing I cannot seem to get right about is XSPC RX360 kit from PC case gear. Now I know the rad can fit easily with an extra hole or two but sacrifice the top 5" bay which I couldn't care less. But I DON'T know if the pump in conjunction with the XSPC water cooling block for the Gigabyte GTX 670 would suffice depending on the whole design. I will make a dummy loop when I have the time using MS paint.

My Rig:

Case: HAF X (Without the defected short circuit)

OS: Win 7 HP x64, XP SP3 x86, Kubuntu 13.04 All Free.

Motherboard: GA 970A D3 Rev (1.3) $100

CPU: AMD FX 8210
$160

Graphics: Geforce PCX 5750 (temporary. Retrofitted 80mm fan. Got rid of noisy little *****) Free

HDD: WD green caviar 1TB, WD black 80GB . $70, Free

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB at 1333Mhz for some reason. It should be 1600Mhz by default. $95

PSU: Silverstone Strider Plus 850 watt rating silver $158 (Last in stock at Victoria:)

Optical: Liteon All in one Blu-ray DVD/CD Writer/Reader $90

Total: $853

The above are all Picked up from store, not on-line orders. Based in Aus.

Planning to get:

Graphics: Geforce GTX 670 $418 (local)

SSD: Corsair GT 128Gb $120-130 (local)

Fans: 5x Yate Loon UV 120mm (Customized from Frozen CPU. Made a full quote....................$120 ish)

Cooling: XSPC RX360 Liquid cooling kit $208 (online)

Waterblocks: XSPC Raystorm GTX 670 $100 (online)

The Above does not include shipping costs and GST.

Will be also getting VRM's and Northbridge Cooled either the use of pure copper heatsink or H2O cooled.

Possible replacements:
Need to upgrade mobo for SLI if I need too in the future. Asus Extreme 990FX $200.

Status:
Will not overclock yet. Northbridge burns finger just sitting idle due to incompatible Gcard at 15 - 23 degrees room temp. Runs flawlessly at 1680x1050 with generic driver in Xrender for Kubuntu 13.04, 12.04 LTS DO NOT update to 173.xx.xx as this screws around with OpenArena (Quake III based game) and have to run it in 680x based resolution which is terrible. Windows 7 makes my hardware bottleneck, CPU fan RPM is always above 2000 RPM (sometimes up to 4500 RPM). Fan speeds are manually uncontrollable except Sys_fan1 and CPU.

That's my PC for now. Running Linux most of the time makes me approve the use of open source OS's even more after running Windows most my life.

Funfact's: Samsung makes Apples electronics components and assembles PCB's in according to apples anorexic designs. All MAC OS's are not Linux Based why?... You don't PAY for OPEN SOURCE! HENCE OPEN SOURCE! Instead you can donate if you want or not, we will still give you a great OS.

Anyway comment like crazy about what ever that's is written here. COME HERE BACARDI 151!

Thank you guys.

Correction with CPU is an 8120 not 8210, will fry mobo with that. But even still, I don't know if I would need a better pump or better res as I have never delt with computers in terms of building.

also have a few more questions like Nvidias GTX 700 series would be released and if shortly, I don't know about scrapping the 670 and go for the 780. who knows, might be one of the first 50,000 people to receive the new product.
