My desired build & overclocking? - Page 2

@Traches - I picked up 850watt PSU due the consideration that I'll be doing SLI not too late after building this rig, so I kind of feel safe when I know I've reliable and powerful PSU that won't let me down or sacrifice the performance of any of these parts, just for safety it is still good for going good brand high watt PSU, I might even do 3-way sometimes later.

TBH, 850 watts is overkill for dual SLI. I run 2 570s on a 700. The 3930k draws about 130W, the 770 draws about 230W, everything else together won't draw more than 100W (in reality, it'll be a lot less than that), and add 50 for overclocking and peace of mind. That brings you up to just over 500W. If you add a second card, that'll be about 750. 850 watts is STILL overkill. More wattage does not in any way imply more reliability or better quality-- it's the manufacturer that determines that. In fact, you lose a lot of efficiency by running an over-rated power supply at a fraction of its capacity. But it's your build, if it gives you peace of mind then spend the money.

Modular PSUs are awesome though. I don't think I'll ever buy a non-modular one again.

the reason I picked up 2 SSDs instead of one is that particularly THIS(128gb) SSD is the possible fastest one available on the market, so there is no bigger capacity of this SSD that is as fast as this and in general... there is no any faster SSD than this one, sure, there are some 240gb 500gb ones, but they aren't nearly as fast as this one is.

You know what you need. I'd probably stick with a single drive though, just use it for your OS and programs. It doesn't even help to keep games on it, except for loading screens. If it's a big file, throw it on that 3 TB beast you've got!

motherboard - Honestly, I'm scared to death from DOAs and RMAs, if I ever get one I hardly think I'll have enough of patience and nerve to send it and wait for another life to get it back, it's just not for me, I can't wait for it, I rather pay double but just not to wait for RMA or DOA lol, ya I know it sounds overly exggrarated, but honestly that's the way it actually is, so what I did, is that i went on newegg.com and noticed that all 2011 mobos have tons of negative reviews related to DOA and RMA, so I just tried to find the 2011 mobo that has the most LESS negative reviews on it, so that one was this one that I picked, and for sure for such a quality and LESS negative reviews you have to pay high price, but still, I'd be more than glad to spend less on mobo but something that has relatively LESS chance of failure, any advice on that?

Again, your call, but if you're that worried about RMAs you could buy 2 regular motherboards and return one once you know the other works. DOAs don't happen THAT often, I've built 6 or 7 computers and the only DOAs I've ever had were a few sticks of ram and a graphics card. Also, I'm not sure that the $450 mobo is any less likely to fail than the $200 one. My advice is to look at what features you get for the extra money, and decide if those alone make the extra money worth it.

I'm still concerned about OCability of 4770k and 3990k, it's VREY important for me to know IF it's possible to OC 3930k as far that it would be equal in core2core comparison with 4770k? this issue is the biggest one that bugs me out, Id REALLY love to know if that's possible to do with 3930k

It's impossible to know how far your CPU will overclock until you get it installed and start cranking it up. Unlocked Ivy bridge chips are solid overclockers-- it's not rare to get a 1-1.5 GHz of OC out of one if you have the cooling for it. I don't know much at all about haswell, so I can't tell you there. You're probably better off asking those particular questions in the respective CPU clubs.

I went particularly with this case because there is no need of modding the case in order to install 180mm rad. as the case has support of ready-to-install liquid cooling rad. right on the top, so you take off 2 fans on top with ease, install 180mm rad then these 2 fans on top of it and screw back with that cover, so basically 180mm rad. stays outside, but you can't see it, because case's top cover closes it, i think its a good think to be safe, avoid dust and more importantly make room for future upgrades inside the case.

Yep, it's a great case and you won't regret getting it. I wasn't trying to talk you out of it, just mentioning that there are tons of options out there.

Thank you boddy, and thanks everyone else who responds me, you guys help me a lot.

I just got one more question! if i get Crosair H110 liquid cooler and replace the default fans with high-end(high rmp) fans, will this change anyhow benefit on OCability? as if I can OC more than with default fans?

Thanks smile.gif


No problem, sorry if we steer you wrong anywhere thumb.gif

Higher RPM fans will help keep your temps down, which may let you OC more if that's what's limiting it, and even if it's not a cooler CPU is a happier CPU. There's always a tradeoff though-- they'll be louder.

For radiators you want fans with a high static pressure and most of the time it is clearly marked on the vendors list which ones have a high static pressure for heat sinks and radiators.

@Traches - Man, I seriously appericate as much as it possibly can get:) you help me A LOT with your answers, and everybody else here help me a lot with your answers, I like how every of you are skillful guys and actually know what are you talking about:) Thanks a lot for leading me to the right way. I wanna add something else about my build

Today, I kind of decided to make a some changes to by build, and actually what I did is`

as of now I've single SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102961) laying in my bedroom at the corner(wonderin why it's not installed in my current PC? that's because I don't have one now biggrin.gif) I gave my old PC to my uncle.

so, as of now I have this GPU and this Case I linked

and I also have AZZA Fusion 4000 full-tower case(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811517017)

Well, so now I'm wondering what if I sacrifice/substitute/take out my previously favored case & gpu and instead of them buy 3970X CPU and install in my current case with 7970?

this changes make it 2.199.50$ build from previous 2.260.xx$ build.

so, now I'm curious if these changes worth and justified for replacing 3930x with 3970x and install them in AZZA fusion 400 with 7970 case?

because you know, let me honest, I won't buy something because it's cheap and "considered" to be the same as the expensive one, I've kind of belief that expensive one relatively has better quality and lifespan, and I want kind of unforgiving performance from this PC, because I believe I'll be torturing it around.

so now the main question is.... is it really worth to make this change? sacrificing HAF X case along with 770 GTX and get 3970x and install with my current 7970 radeon?

you may be asking if you already own a radeon 7970 why would you even think of purchasing gtx 770 rather than just installing your own one? that's because I've heard rumors that crossfire doesn't nearly perform as good as SLI Nvidias, they say crossfire is useless because it slows down the PC and doesn't really work the way it's expected/designed, is this claim true?

once again guys, Thanks for help and support everybody smile.gif

cheers mate thumb.gif Thanks for "rig compliment" I've the same hope too, I'll be more than glad if this PC turn out to be as performing as I expect:) and I don't expect much tho tonguesmiley.gif

The 3930K can pull over 250W when overclocked, and overclocking 7970 can make it pull a lot more than it does at stock as well.

please could you do me a favor and link me the possible BEST high rev fans I should replace with for H110? I can't figure out that RPM and Air flow numbers, honestly, they don't make much sense to me, could you please recommend me fans I should replace with the stock H110 fans?

Thanks. smile.gif

Glad to help!

Here is a thread that is a good discussion on Radiator fans Good high static pressure 120mm fans!
Also this article from anandtech.com Choosing the best 120mm Radiator Fan: Testing 8 Fans on the Corsair H80 Not the same radiator as yours, but it does give you an idea about fans.
Fans:
Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 120mm
Swiftech Helix 120mm (I have two of these in push/pull on my CM 212 EVO and they are not loud and move air well)
Corsair SP120 High Performance Edition 2-Pack
Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition 2-Pack
Yate Loon 120mm D12SH-12

Hope this helps, I tried to give you lots of options and price points. I really like the Corsair fans, also the different color rings are cool if you are into aesthetics. Cheers. thumb.gif
