It would be extremely difficult to assemble a computer incorrectly. You can't plug a video card into a memory slot - it won't fit. All the data and power connectors are of sizes and shapes such that they only fit the matching, correct sockets.

Why are you looking a water cooled computers? You're not going to be overclocking.

You might want to consider a multi monitor setup.

if you are not going to overclock you can just get an air cooler for like $30 and it will be way more than enough for cooling your cpu. i would go this route because even though the AIO water cooling kits are considered pretty safe now, i believe the concensus is still "don't put water in your PC unless you need it" since its unnecessary risk. you really should put a small oc on it tho smile.gif

regarding your concerns for returns or failures, don't worry about the chip, theres almost no chance it will fail before this rig is a worthless boat anchor if you don't overclock it. basically anything other than the motherboard is a no hassle replacement, you unplug it, go to the store, get a new one, plug it in. personally I think the most common components to have issues are, in order, motherboards, ram, storage drives. of those, only the motherboard is a problem for you, provided you have used some decent backup software.

keep in mind that while the resellers return policy may suck, most products come with a good warrantee/RMA package from the manufacturer, like mobos, and while it can be a real hassle to get it replaced, if you are not responsible for the dmg you will get a new one. its the downtime that will be the problem.

my recommendation would be to start a thread asking about x79 mobos people are using and whether they have had any issues. even the best manufacturers have issues with certain models, since this is obviously a primary concern for you.

also you have ECC server memory in there, I have no idea if the processor supports it, but im pretty sure you just want regular memory. don't even know if that will work in there, but this is where my expertise falls off and we need help from someone with more experience. I do know that if the processor doesn't support ECC then even if they work they aren't any better than regular RAM and cost more. if it does, you really probably don't need it.

basically ECC memory is for when a system crash = major $$ risk either due to having to rebuild a RAID array or the downtime costing $$ directly due to project timeline or loss of service. afaik

I would drop the extended warrantee plans on everything except the gcard for sure. the chip will basically be fine if its working after you assemble everything. a 30 days return policy is all you need. once its in and going its not going to stop for at least 3 years. the rest of the components, if it fails just buy a new one, try to get manufacturer to replace broken one. you don't need a extended warrantee on a $100 HDD or power supply simply because its so unlikely they will fail its actually smarter to just plan to buy a new one if it happens, and hope that it doesn't.

aside from the corsair components and the mentioned tendency of motherboards to have potential issues, the rest of the components are *extremely* unlikely to fail. HDD well under 1% within 2 years, ie its worth $1 tops for a warrantee in terms of estimated value.

and lastly, +1 for considering a multi monitor setup, I recommend EVERYONE EVERYWHERE gets at least a secondary if they do any work on their rig. I could never go back to even 2 monitors now that ive had 3, same with 1 to 2. just having a second monitor to put your reference material on alone will honestly pay for itself several times over within a year if you work on your computer fulltime. it just makes it way easier to keep track of everything and get work done.

oh I forgot to add to make sure you check out the differences between NVidia quadros and gaming cards, you may be in a situation where one of the quadro line makes more sense for your applications, in terms of performance / $. again I have no idea, gl with this. all I know is that your definitely in the price bracket where you can afford either or, you will want to find out whats the difference.

My only experience building a computer by my own was years ago, like you said everything was fitting their respective parts, except I remember I had to be careful with the cpu (and probably the case didn't help, everything was so tight.)

I didn't know cooling was meant for overclocking, thanks for letting me know. I don't think I'll overclock so I can save money there.

As for the multi monitor I'd love that, but unfortunately I don't have enough space.

Jollyburner, thank you for your advices.
I changed the list, swapping the ECC ram with regular one and also changed the cooling system. That's already a good save. A bit confused about the ram actually, as it seems the price range can vary a lot. This is what I've picked:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231610

I also took out the warranty from almost everything, except for the video card and for the cpu (I guess you might suggest to remove it from the cpu as well.)

As for the Video card and the Motherboard I'll start separate threads. Actually I've heard (already lot of times) that GeForce are very good for the applications I wanna use. It seems Quadro have just optimized drivers, but as far as I know lot of 3d and motion graphics guys are adopting GeForce.

So, now the list looks like this:

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
$99.99

EVGA 04G-P4-3687-KR GeForce GTX 680 FTW+ w/Backplate 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP
$559.99
-$30.00 Instant

XION AXP-1000K14XE 1000W ATX SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80+ Bronze Modular Power Supply
$124.99

G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop
$239.99

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
$324.99

Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor
$569.99

Masscool 7WA868 UNIVERSAL Socket CPU Cooler compatible for latest INTEL 2011/1366/1155 & AMD
$33.99

LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner,
$59.99

Corsair Neutron Series CSSD-N256GB3-BK 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
$199.99

Corsair Obsidian Series 350D CC-9011028-WW Black Aluminum / Steel MicroATX Case
$89.99

Subtotal: $2,213.91
Extended Warranty: $59.98
Tax: $207.35
Shipping: $0.96

Grand Total: $2,572.19

not bad, considering that I was initially looking at a laptop solution which, if I'm not mistaken, can never be as powerful as a desktop solution.

Get a big, full tower case and have plenty of room inside.

As for multi monitors, make room, you'll never regret it.

we talking about Rendering u know 500 mhz extra will save u hours and even days so in 3D world when u put ur workstation to render for few days full 24hours with that few mhz extra might save ur ass at the deadline , i use maya And 3dsmax and rendering on mental ray etc.. other engines take the use of every 100 mhz u put and cores if u can afford xeon omg go for it otherwise 2011 3930k worth it

Sory to tell you but that XION PSU is not very good

You sould pick something else and 1000 watts is crazy overkill you dont need more then 550 watts max

now my suggestion is this list


sry for the amazing English
and i wrote too much biggrin.gif but must know it all coz i did sense that u not much of hardware enthusiast

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/128lD = 3154.22$

1) I i did put in List 32GB ram witch is good for rendering video editing etc.. the speed 2133 mhz that will be needed later on i will explain why
2) i did chose motherboard it supports up to 64GB ram witch will be good for future upgrade also it overs more Pci lanes witch u might need
3)Storage 1 SSD for Os and installing softwares on it like ur most used softwares that way u get fast access to it and some videos or photo sequence what ever the project u working on

a)the 2TB hardisk ofc depends on u how much u need GB?
b)u can also change the SSD GB according to ur need but i suggest 240GB is good
c) Can use 16GB Ram to cache to get more perfomance of ur 2TB hardisk it will be even faster then the SSD that way if u have large photage or uncompressed files like i do work on somtimes the Ram cache will be fast , and if u feel 16GB not large enough then u can add more ram, the speed 2133 mhz will give faster cache then the slow ram

4) adding ram u have 4 more slots mean u can add 32GB more ram to use for the cahe and let the original 4 slots for system and rendering


5) i did Chose cpu , i7 3930K for the rendering power u will need that number of cores ofc everyone know that more cores = faster render specially in Auto desk applications after 2005

a) Overclocking the cpu will give u really faster renders
b) will it is up to u if u don't want to try to overclock i7-3930k 6 cores, then change cpu and get 4 core cpu i7-3820
c) Stay to 2011 cpu u need the ram and pci slots trust me more pci= ur workstation can still perform in future = can be upgraded , yes 1 day u might need to add 2nd quadro or ssd pci to edit faster on the uncompressed video etc..

6) the H100 it is easy to install my sig rig is my 1st pc and i got h100 in it i didn't even need to look at manual twice once was enough, on otherhand u can save $ by going to air cooler it is fine and can still overclock but that high, for air get cooler master hyper 212

7) power supply , if u will overclock and use 3930k stick to the 800w psu , simply the psu's are cheap and getting more w today is k becuase tmrw u will add more components to upgrade or more Hardisks etc.. so when that day come u don't want to go and buy power supply

8) it depends on u , u will be gaming ? then quadro wont be that good, and u will have 3 options in my experience

a) Nvidia Gtx 690
b) Gtx Titan
c) Gtx 780


For the 690 it have 2 gpu's will be nice for gaming and it is amazing perfomance to render etc.. however for Adobe it will be slower then Titan and some other software's in terms of Cuda performance the reason for the cuda performance less then titan is that 690 have (2 gtx 680 in it each one of them have 1500 cuda cores but till today there is no software use cuda cores Sli witch mean no software benifit from 2 graphic cards with cuda cores they will juse use one gtx 680 and that = 1500 cuda core's used) but in the normal rendering software's that don't rely on Cuda like maya and max they will use both the gpu's so the 690 will be 100% used biggrin.gif can set in settings if u want also to use 1 and leave 2nd to go for gaming while rendering

when the Titan is good if u use so much the Cuda supported software's like Adobe because as i said before they use only 1 gpu cuda cores so the Titan is single graphic card and have 2600 Cuda cores will good and fast, but slower then 690 in games by a bit % and slower in maya max and render engines etc..

For the gtx 780 it is like best Value for gaming/workstation card u can get , it is cheap and fast give u 2300 cuda cores and have single graphic card in it so it is ur decision how much horse power u want ?

the 690 cost 1000$ Titan also same, but 780 cheaper , the good part is all of them have option to Sli = u can add 2nd card of the same model to get more performance when u feel it wasn't enough , but remember for Cuda cores performance more graphic cards no point at least till today

for the guys who don't believe me go search it up the fact taht Gtx 690 have 3072 Cuda cores won't benefit so the applications will use only one 680 cuda cores and that is 1536, but the regular software's will use the clock speed of the processor and memory etc..


Here is also a nice thing if u want to hack the Gtx 690 (use the link ) u will get perfomance of Quadro 5000 witch is even higher then quadro 4000 in rendering and it will cost u less then quadro 5000 of course
quadro 5000= $1,639.99
but 690 = 1000$
quadro 4000 = 719$

550 watts that means no 2nd card in the future and thats it.
why all ppl settle for the low watts ?

if u r on a low budget i understand but also to be able to upgrade in future if u feel the need for more horsepower then must have bigger psu more Watts to add 2nd card etc..
