New build advice / approval..

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I'm working on a new build and would like some input on the parts I chose. I've never ventured in to the 2011 socket cpu's before. I want the power those cpu's offer but also want to keep to sff. So this is the component list I have so far and purchased most of it already from Amazon....

Case: Corsair 350D (bought)
Processor: i7 4930k (bought)
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Gene (bought)
Memory: 16gb Corsair Dominator Plats quad channel 2400mhz CL9 (already own)
Graphics Card: EVGA 780 ti Classified Kingpin Edition (buying soon)
PSU: Corsair 860 Platinum (bought)
Storage: 2 x 250gb Samsung EVO for raid 0 (buying soon)
Cooling: Corsair h110 / 4 x Corsair AF140s / 1 x AF120 (bought)
OS: Windows 7 64bit (already own)


I keep telling myself I will watercool but I keep putting it off. I think once I get this system pretty much built and in working order I will gradually move to fully watercooling it. Especially since I will be getting a kingpin. That is a must.thumb.gif I have read that this case (350D) has decent versatility to allow for a nice watercooling setup. I also wanted a case that offered enough room for great cable management. It was either this case or the Aerocool ds-cube. In the end, I told myself to trust corsair because they make such fine products. Hopefully it all comes together as planned.

Anyways, does this look decent for a sff build? Is there a component you would advise against or a component that would be better suited for my situation? Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions. I know most of it is already purchased but if need be, I can return the item(s). Amazon is amazing about returns.

I really wanted an excuse to get a new 2011 cpu and to take full advantage of my quad dom plats. I also really want a voltage unlocked card such as the kingpin. Yeah, it is a great gaming rig but by no means am I able to compete with the upper benchmark scores with rigs that have these powerful 2011 cpus and voltage unlocked gpus. I know I dont need it though.tongue.gif

Its pointless for you to spend that much much money.

OP doesnt need to water cool if he would rather have an air setup with a 780ti and a 4930k. Theres nothing wrong with that.

If you read further in my original post, I mention my intention of watercooling later and I will. I guess I just need a proper case to do it while still maintaining sff. I think the 350D will serve me well. What do you guys think? Any have experience with the 350D?

I understand where you're coming from though. Basically if I'm spending so much on components, I might as well take that extra step and spend a little more on watercooling. Like I said, I really want to. I've always just been held back by laziness and putting aside the time to do it. Since I'm buying a Kingpin edition, I think watercooling is pretty much a must.

Anyone have experience with the Corsair 350D? I've read that I can mount a 280 rad on top but I was wondering if I could fit one at the front as well?

Also, anyone have experience with the ASUS Rampage IV Gene? How do/did you like it?
