Need help want to order parts today.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi this is my first build. I am happy with it. My question is does the motherboard or case come with screws to mount the motherboard in the case? Does the psu come with all the wiring for the gpu and motherboard? This is not only for gaming it is for video editing/rendering and photo editing. I need the fast ram. I chose that mobo because I want to upgrade a lot in the future (I do not have the money to get everything I want now). I chose blu ray drive because I burn blu ray discs a lot. The psu is for sli in the future. I chose that case because it has good cooling and cool looks. Will the cpu heatsink/fan run into the ram will I have any trouble with that?

Thank You

Your build looks pretty solid as is. It will come with all the screws and wiring and whatnot you should need, so don't worry about that.

looks good.
You may want more ram and more HDDs in raid for speed

I curious why you chose Sandy Bridge E for your build? Ivy Bridge and Haswell are more efficient and for four cores, faster. Otherwise, it looks like a solid rig. I would get an SSD too for your OS/software. They are really a worthwhile upgrade.

I chose sandy bridge e over haswell because sandy bridge generates less heat and I do not need way to much power out of my computer. I did have a hard time choosing between Ivy bridge and sandy bridge e, I chose sandy bridge e because in benchmarks the i7 3820 came out faster then the i7 3770k. I am on a extremely tight budget but as soon as I have enough money I am definitely going to go for a ssd. I already ordered all the parts. Can you send me any vids or tutorials on how to put everything together this is my first time.

Thank You

You might have an issue with the ram on the board. Due to how close the slots are, the ram might be tight due to the heat spreader.
So you know the Asus BC-12B1ST is not a blu-ray writer. reader only, DVD writer.

You also need to get a four channel memory kit to realize the full bandwidth. An SSD will produce noticeable speed increases too, so I would pick one of those up as soon as you can. For building tutorials, just Google it, you will get lots of hits and really building a computer is pretty easy although it can be daunting the first go. Just take your time with it. If you have any hiccups along the way, post back and I'll do my best to help you out.

Build looks nice, except if you are a new user just a word of advice to save your trouble from installation to maintenance. Switch your big gigantic bulky Noctua NH-D14 air cooler to a Corsair H110 Water Cooler. It will be easier to install, way easier. On top of that it will give you lower temperatures for overclocking (and hate to break it to you but Sandy Bridge-E runs pretty hot). The H110 will also be far easier to work around, and maintain (grab a compressed air canister and blow out the fans/radiator). If you ever need to remove the block it takes less than 5 minutes. It also is far superior in cooling ability than a D14. Besides the price difference between the two is $25.

Lastly, I would really add a decent SSD for at least a boot drive and a couple of programs. You can get an Intel 180GB 335 Series SSD for $160 @ Amazon.com

^ I agree with that. Big air cooler are a pain to install and work around.
