The Kraken stats are great. Will the unit fit into an nzxt 820 phantom case? Since the 4770k was so recently released, what motherboards are on the market that are comparable to something like asus maximus v formula? A gigabyte sniper 5?

Lol the Phantom 820 is a full tower case, so pretty much anything will fit in it.

Heh. I'm reading up on the 820 right now. It's definitely what I like -- sleek and angular.

I can do what blyss advises. Is there an asus board for the 4770k? Or a comparable board?

These are all gamer/enthusiast level mobos, so pretty overclock friendly without being too intense for those new to it all.

The Asus and Gigabyte boards look great, especially the Gigabyte. Thanks! Thoughts on the sniper 5?

Before you go ASUS, read my thread regarding their support:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1397643/asus-p8z77-v-failure-and-asus-response#post_20131769

I did some research on the Sniper 5 a few days ago and it seems to be a very nice board. It is expensive, but nice. Gigabyte will likely support you better than ASUS. I have to admit, I have 7 ASUS boards at the moment. I have loved ASUS for many years. My dad used them back in the late 90s and I followed his lead up until the decided to give me a hard time about my RMA. I don't want to push you away from ASUS simply because of my situation with them. They have served me well, but you should know that they do not seem to care when it comes to RMAs. I just purchased an Asrock because I am running low on money, but my next option would have been Gigabyte. The mosfets on the Sniper 5 are great. You should not experience any trouble overclocking with that board.

I appreciate the fyi. I read the link and sadly you're not alone. I'll stick with the sniper 5. I can see now that the 1150 socket should last a few years, and I'm prepared to upgrade the 780 gtx 3 gig gpu in much less time. That's the way tech rolls.So here is my build - SSD/HDD aren't specific.

Nzxt phantom 820 white
4770k
Gigabyte sniper 5 motherboard
Corsair 850w PSU (free gift)
16 G ram g. Skill X series 2133
Kraken x60
SSD 128 G (free)
HDD 1 TB (free)

Any suggestions let me know smile.gif

I can't argue with that setup, as it is almost identical to mine. The full tower is the best way to go. Your ambient temps will stay low and that always helps. The processor and motherboard are, of course, perfect and should overclock as well as the processor will allow. I run a Corsair 750W and have had only one problem. I have not RMAed it yet because when a PSU goes down, you really need one fast. I purchased the same Corsair again as I have had worse luck with Enermax and Antec. In other words, you are making the right decision. I run that exact memory. I have not attempted to overclock it, but it runs very stable at stock voltage. I don't use a closed loop cooler, but if I did, it would be the Kraken. I run an OCZ Vector 128GB SSD along with a few 3TB drives. Make sure you hook your SSD up to the Intel SATA III controller. With your 1TB, it won't really matter as I have (had) my regular HDDs running on the ASmedia controller and the Intel controller with absolutely no performance difference. I think you have a great setup here! When do you plan on picking everything up?

Thanks blyss smile.gif I'll order it from newegg and pick it up at will call, so hopefully no later than Tu/wed. I want to thank you and everyone for putting in so much time answering my questions. I'm giving +rep so pm me if I missed anyone. I could never have done this without a lot of advice, info and help. Now setting it all up... haha. Then little steps to ocing the chip... brace for more questions smile.gif
