Help Request for Very First Build.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Greetings, first of all I hope I'm in the correct section in order to request help, if not then I would like to apologize.
Also want to apologize for my English since it cannot be the best, but I hope you guys are able to understand me rolleyes.gif

So, like I said previously, I have some issues regarding my build and I can't figure out it I'm doing everything fine or wrong, that's why I thought in asking experts (you guys). After my gear list I will explain my doubt's, and want to thank from the very beginning for the support that everyone is going to give me.

So here is my gear list:

x01 - Corsair Obsidian 900D

x01 - EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 1500W PSU

x01 - ASUS ROG SERIES MAXIMUS VI EXTREME Skt 1150

x01 - Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz 8MB Skt 1150 Box

x01 - EVGA Frostbite Super Cool

x01 - CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance 240mm

​x13 - Corsair Air Series AF120 LED Blue Quiet Edition High Airflow 120mm Twin Pack​

​x02 - EK-CoolStream RAD XT (480)

​x01 - EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)

x07 - ​4 Pin Fan Splitter

​x01 - Corsair Link Cooling and Lighting Kit [CL-9011106]

x01 - CORSAIR PC3-19200 2400mhz Dominator Platinum 32GB CL10 (4x8GB) DDR3​

x02 - SLI x2 Way GeForce GTX 780 Ti​

x01 - Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 240GB 2.5" SATA III

x01 - Western Digital RE 2TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA III 3.5

​x01 - Microsoft WINDOWS 8 PRO 64BIT EN OEM

​x01 - ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu Ray

*************************************************************************************

So I thought in using a total of 26 Fans and 3 Radiator's [4 if the CPU Block one count's]

x08 Fans -> EK-CoolStream RAD XT (480) - TOP

x08 Fans -> EK-CoolStream RAD XT (480) - BOT

x04 Fans -> EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240) - BOT

x04 Fans -> CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance 240mm - REAR [Switching it with the Exaust Fan]

x02 Fans -> On the FRONT of the Case

But I thought... so many fan's need splitters, so let's use: 26 Fans / 4 Fan Splitters = 6,5 ~ 7 of them.
Yea... but I can't connect them all to the motherboard that way, so let's use Corsair Link Cooling and Lighting Kit [CL-9011106] that way that device can hold up to 8 of them and connect them to the motherboard.

[So that's my first question, can I do that or have I done anything wrong? If I failed please let me know how to fix it] blushsmiley.gif


*************************************************************************************

So my case would be the Obsidian 900D and I would use the ASUS ROG SERIES MAXIMUS VI EXTREME as the motherboard that support's Skt 1150.

Then I would install the Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz 8MB Skt 1150 since it support's the 4ºth Generation ones as well, use the EVGA Frostbite Super Cool Thermal Paste on it and apply the CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance 240mm on it, fixing it in the REAR of the case.

Also want to add the fact that I will use only the Corsair Air Series AF120 LED Blue Quiet Edition High Airflow Fans, (will switch the CPU Block Fans and the 900D default's ones).

After that I would install the CORSAIR PC3-19200 2400mhz Dominator Platinum 32GB CL10 (4x8GB) DDR3​ and the SLI x2 Way GeForce GTX 780 Ti​ (Gonna be released).

And if I'm not mistaken the motherboard already includes a Sound & Network Card.

[Like before let me know if I've done anything wrong and correct me]

*************************************************************************************

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 1500W PSU after adding that to the case I would connect it to the motherboard, SSD & HDD Drives:
Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 240GB 2.5" SATA III & Western Digital RE 2TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA III 3.5 and ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu Ray.
And I would install the Windows 8 Pro on the SSD one.

What do I need more in order to get the case running and for everything to be working?
Do I need more cables (and what type)? What can I do in order to improve my system or what can't I do?
It's my first time, and I rather ask before buying the gear so don't be harsh one me please. oinksmiley.png

You dont want the EVGA NEX1500 its not that good its also massively overpriced to a point where its a ripoff

1500 watts is also way way overkill even 750-850 watts is more then for two GTX 780 cards

A good 750 to 850 watts is all you need

Maybe more if you want to start overvolting those two GTX 780 but even then 1000 watts should be more then enough

In this case spend money on quality not quantity

The new EVGA PSU´s thank god are nothing like they older ones which are mediocre and overpriced

The new EVGA PSU´s are very good so much so that i would call the EVGA SuperNova P2 the best 1000 watts PSU money can buy right now

As for water cooling and fans and that kind of stuff sory cant be of much help there

I'm terribly confused. Why are you getting both a H100i and a couple of EK radiators? Where are the rest of the watercooling parts to go with the radiators? And why are you getting so much radiatior? You don't need 2 x 480s and a 240 to cool a 4770 and a couple of 780 Tis.

I'm at work, so I cannot say much. Bullet points.

- Smaller power supply.
- Different RAM. A 4x8 kit of Patriot
or G.Skill will be MUCH cheaper and provide the same performance.
- Consider a full loop if your confident. If not, a closed loop like the H100 and a few aftermarket coolers for your soon-to-be 780 Ti's will be easier and cheaper.

My 2c.

After my gear list I will explain my doubt's, and want to thank from the very beginning for the support that everyone is going to give me.

So here is my gear list:

x01 - Corsair Obsidian 900D Looks good, fantastic case, holds a great amount of rads, just be sure PSU cables are long enough to make it to the 24-pin on the mobo

x01 - EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 1500W PSU Terrible psu, and far too big. I suggest getting a Seasonic G 850W

x01 - ASUS ROG SERIES MAXIMUS VI EXTREME Skt 1150 Far past overkill for a mobo, but hey its a fantastic mobo so whatever. If you wanted to go cheaper, an AsRock Extreme 6 or Asus Z87-Pro will also do the trick

x01 - Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz 8MB Skt 1150 Box If your not going to be doing any rendering or movie making etc. Save some money and get the 4670k. Literally the only different between the two is hyperthreading, which isn't currently using in 95% of games

x01 - EVGA Frostbite Super Cool Decent thermal paste, I personally suggect Arctic Cooling MX-5 but hey whatever floats your boat.

x01 - CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance 240mm Why bother getting a separate closed loop system for your CPU? Get a CPU waterblock and hook it up to the immense amount of rads you have

​x13 - Corsair Air Series AF120 LED Blue Quiet Edition High Airflow 120mm Twin Pack​ There are better fans for the money, but I personally feel if the fan is quiet, and pushes decent air, you can sacrifice performance for looks

​x02 - EK-CoolStream RAD XT (480) Decent rad, I personally like Swiftech better but thats just me

​x01 - EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240) Same as above

x07 - ​4 Pin Fan Splitter Make sure to get a fan controller as well!

​x01 - Corsair Link Cooling and Lighting Kit [CL-9011106]

x01 - CORSAIR PC3-19200 2400mhz Dominator Platinum 32GB CL10 (4x8GB) DDR3​ Very pretty ram, but I personally like G.Skill and Kingston Beast memory much better, and plus its cheaper

x02 - SLI x2 Way GeForce GTX 780 Ti​ Fantastic cards, but if you are going with watercooling, I can say that the R9 290X will perform better. But thats all personal preference

x01 - Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 240GB 2.5" SATA III Get the Samsung EVO 250GB. Faster, not on sandforce and cheaper (generally speaking)

x01 - Western Digital RE 2TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA III 3.5 Good drive, also look at the Seagate Barracuda drives. Just as reliable and sometimes cheaper.

​x01 - Microsoft WINDOWS 8 PRO 64BIT EN OEM AHH WINDOWS 8! KILL IT WITH FIRE! Actually 8.1 should be out soon, but I still prefer windows 7 any day of the week.

​x01 - ASUS BW-12B1ST Blu Ray Do you really need a blu-ray player? If you own less then 10 Blu-Rays then the answer is no.

*************************************************************************************

What do I need more in order to get the case running and for everything to be working?
Do I need more cables (and what type)? What can I do in order to improve my system or what can't I do? Get some spare SATA cables, you never know wink.gif
It's my first time, and I rather ask before buying the gear so don't be harsh one me please. oinksmiley.png

Everything I've written is in your post in bold. Any more questions ask!

Observing the performance difference between a Pentium dual core, and i3 (hyperthreaded) of the same generation in gaming benchmarks should help give some insight into what you can expect in the coming years for the difference in performance between running the i5 or i7. In many games, the i3 does make a notable difference over the Pentium, and the only significant difference is hyper-threading. If budget is a concern, the i5 is a good choice, but I don't see how a build with $1400+ worth of GPU is going to make any sense with an i5. In the long run the i7 is going to be the better match to keep those big nasty GPUs busy. With that much invested in GPUs, I'd almost be tempted to build a 2011 based system just for the "fun" factor of it since budget doesn't appear to be a major factor here.
