Need some input on my new build

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've been reading a lot and trying to figure out this new stuff as best I can. This computer will be used for everything. I play MMO games and Liston to music and read. My monitor is 1020x1080,i'll be moving over everything else. I was going to go with Asus but I hear a lot of bad things about the RMA's

Pretty solid build, except a few things. If you are playing @ 1920x1080p you really don't need 4GB of VRAM and as proven it is mostly useless on these cards with 256-bit bus interfaces. You will be fine with the regular 2GB of VRAM model of the card.

Secondly, if you are spending $80 on an aftermarket cooler. You might as well go with a Corsair H80i. It will give you better temps than any of those air coolers, it will be easier to install, and lastly it will be easier to maintain. Decibel levels are also about the same either way.

Other than that looks pretty good.

I'd like to add that ram is kinda slow/ you can do much better with that platform... and you will probably want to go with a corsair h80i like Big said.

9-9-9-27 1866MHz slow? thinking.gif

well... they are making 3300mhz kits for it now or is http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?286414-How-to-bin-a-DDR3-4000-Memory-!-AVEXIR-Computex-2013&p=5192744 somehow slower than that? \

not slow kinda slow. Comparatively speaking unless the timings make the mhz scale down to slower than 9-9-9-27 1866

Looks like a solid build. I second getting a closed loop cooler for that system. Do your research though, the Corsair ones are not the only ones out there. I have had great luck with ASUS, but I understand the hesitation, I have the same feelings about AsRock. I think that sometimes a bad part is just gonna happen though, RMA is nearly inevitable in the PC building world; what matters is how good the product works when it works. I say stick with the 770 4GB, it will future proof it imho. Cheers.

I actually say dont bother with the closed loop system. The Phanteks works wonders and can actually have better temps then the H80i. Wont be better then the H100i but it should do better then the H80i.
Also I recommend not getting Haswell as of lately. They don't overclock all that well and they run HOT. Like hotter then Ivybridge hot. They are much better for power consumption, but I would rather take hardware power over power consumtion. Go for an Ivybridge, save yourself some hastle.
I do however second the 2GB GPU over the 4GB, unless you're recording, its totally pointless to have that much Vram.

I thought that with Haswell 1866 ram was about the best speed.I thought I read somewhere that anything over that speed was a wast,please correct me if I'm wrong. My budget is 1500.00,I doent have a problem spending the money on parts.I just doent want to wast money on anything that won't make me go faster

sounds like BS to me it will read 1866 actual which is 1866x2 so 3732mhz sticks. 1866 stick don't get read at 1866 they get read at half that according to cpuZ. not saying you should spend a thousand on the best 3000+ mem sticks out there I am just saying you can do better than that like http://www.amazon.com/ADATA-Gaming-DDR3-2000-CL9-9-9-24-AX3U2000GB2G92G/dp/B003VAPL1O will run 8-8-8-24 anyways as far as specific rams http://ramlist.i4memory.com/ddr3/table.php


or samsung yko sticks http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Extreme-MV-3V4G3D-US/dp/B00592002W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370993598&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+ddr3 i got these to run at 2474 under 10-12-11-31 timings (i have extra 4 sticks if you are interested)

and if you plan on going 4khd or any of the higher resolutions past 1080p the 4gb card is the way to go
mobos any RoG or the new asrock oc formula is pretty amazing especially if u ever want to LN2

I dont see a PSU in there do you have one already?

I see you have a Seasonic X750 you will be using that?
