Build around Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I made a thread a while back about this processor and the fact that I had 2 of them, needless to say it got sidetracked...

So I'd like to start again,

I have 2 x Intel Core 2 Extreme QX7600s http://ark.intel.com/products/28028/Intel-Core2-Extreme-Processor-QX6700-8M-Cache-2_66-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB

I would like to build 2 computers with them.

Have for both:
GeForce 9600GT Vertro
Corsair Hydro H60
More HDDs than I could ever know what to do with.

Don't have yet:
Micro ATX MOBO capable of overclocking. These are being donated to a 14 year old and a 16 year old who understand the concept of overclocking so durable bios would be great. Dual bios would be better. don't need them nuking them a week out gunner.gif
Micro ATX cube style case that can hold a CD drive and 2x 3.5 or 3x 2.5 HDDs this is Ideal but if the case was small enough I could go with a small tower. I'm open to options.
Memory, DDR3 please its cheaper.
Last but not least a PSU capable of supporting this at setup while running at 60% or less under load.

Budget.... I don't have one but lower is better, Supporting a minecraft server with 10 people would be great also because they play Minecraft and would love to have there own server for friends. The computers will be identical.

there's my 10 min. build. hope it gives you some useful ideas... pci card is probably overkill, but the front panel of case has usb 3.0. it's really thin metal on case making it real easy to mod. BTW- psu is a blind pick, no exp. with the brand or anything- antec 550W green would probably be better.

please never cheap out on a PSU.. ENERMAX isn't the best, but they are reliable and won't take your PC with it if it does die
