Also comes with 8GB of crucial low-profile ram so you can shave off some cost there

Ya the Z77N isn't a great board for overclocking as it is voltage locked, but just a little boost say to 4.2GHz @ stock voltage might give around 6000 extra PPD (possibly higher), if you wanted better, you would have to go with one of the boards where voltage isn't locked.

Also dman! Thanks for your list, how can I find your lists on newegg.com? I have a colleague at school that was wanting to look at some build configurations but I dont have the time unfortunately with my MCITP courses

Thanks in advance

I could send all of them to you or I could make them all public, both will take time, but I think if you PM me your email it might be quicker on my end. Then again maybe Newegg would think I was spamming by sending so many rigs to one email address... if I made them all public though, it would take forever to get approved... Tell me what you want me to do and I will do what I can.

I suppose it depends how high you want to overclock the CPU. You could prob get away with a £600 or less rig.

Oh most definitely, with the configuration I posted, modding to take out the HDD cage to fit the H60 would have to be done, and the only reason the H60 is in that configuration is because I would be willing to do said mod for myself.

I don't know which asus z77 boards support overclocking, do they all allow full control of everything?

this http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/ASUS-P8Z77-V-PRO-Motherboard/1529/4 basically lists everything about asus' current z77 lineup in terms of features, except exactly whether overclocking is fully unlocked. definitely check this article out if you are shopping for asus mobo.

the asus z77 PRO is probably going to be the best board out there from asus if you want the door open for SLI @x8x8, full overclocking features, and good power delivery. any boards above this in specs are great, but don't provide a lot of performance benefit over cost.

if anyone can confirm which asus boards are fully capable of overclocking id love to know.

Added £500 folding rig (suprisingly cheap!)

Also surprising is that you can have two Intel builds for £1000 mark, one with a 3570k and SLI, the other with a 3770k but single gpu.

When its put that way I think I would personally rather go for the 3570k rig, but I guess it depends mostly on your monitor and what games you plan on playing.

Midrange budget $1000:
"Normal" High air flow Cases, mid tower - Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 (filtered intakes with 3 stock fans) £75.76
Light up Cases - Coolermaster 690 II advanced (tried and true) ~ £81.98?

High-midrange $1500 build:
"Normal" High air flow Cases, mid tower - Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 (fits H100i easily and even when retail is reasonably priced with filtered intakes)
Silent cases - Fractal Design Define R4 ~ £75.59, NZXT H630 (if you can buy it & on sale), Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 , Corsair 550D (if on a serious sale)

* see http://www.overclock.net/t/1144409/h80-h80i-h90-h100-h100i-h110-case-compatibility-thread-page-1-for-full-listings

* Thermaltake Urban series S41 hasn't gotten any reviews yet , keep an eye out for that smile.gif

edit: The CM Elite 430 appears to lack USB 3.0, 431 Plus maybe be better for minimal cost increase
