Asus P5N-D Socket 775 Motherboard

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello all! I am new to the forums here. Basically what I was wondering is if I could ask you all if you still think a Asus P5N-D and a Q6600 with 4gb ddr2 800 and a hyper 212+ with a 1gb gtx 750 superclocked in a thermaltake v3 black case with a 430w corsair psu and 1tb hard drive could potentially be a good build? I am wondering this because I have seen people reach a stable 3.6 on air cooling with ok temps, however I would like to stay somewhere in the 3.2-3.4 range if temps are around 55c at load on this cooler. Also, could anyone help me out with some 3.2-3.4ghz stable settings on the 750i chipset? Also, will an oc be stable on this 430w power supply with 7 fans and the above parts? I kind of wanted to do this because it is a 500 dollar build with potential for a 660 or 760 sli somewhere in the future. Do you think this is a wise build? No, I am not interested in buying into that "unlocked i5 haswell" crap as I do not believe they are a cost effective oc cpu like the q6600 due to the q6600 being 45 dollars vs unlocked i5 for 230+. I believe 775 cpu have plenty of potential left. Anyway, without my rambling, would this be a wise build? Thanks

Build would be to review

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (somewhere around 3.2 to 3.4 ghz)
EVGA NVIDIA 1GB GTX 750 Superclocked
Asus P5N-D
4GB DDR2 800 (Samsung and Komputerbay)
WD Blue 1TB Internal Hard Drive
Thermaltake V3 Black Edition
Corsair CX430 Modular Power Supply
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
7 Cooler Master Sickleflow 120mm Case Fans (5 in case, 2 on Hyper 212 Evo)
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

Please give me your honest opinions on a build that is of this spec. Thanks!

If you are going with one or more video cards you should upgrade your PSU

@shilka

I don't think I would need a psu with a 750 which only takes around 80w peak load
Yeah I would need to get probably like a 750w if I was going dual 760s primarily what I was asking is if people thought q6600 at 3.2-3.4 would be still sufficient for dual 660 or 760 or something similar to that

An upgraded psu wouldn't be necessary for one gtx 750 is what I was trying to say

I was thinking better quality if you where to put a bigger video card in it

Well 430w would be sufficient for one 760 or 660 but I'd definitely need 750w for dual 760 or 660
Do u think cpu with OC is sufficient enough to handle that type of setup is my main poiny

I personally suggest you don't invest a dime in an old outdated system.For one reason,Nvidia chipsets are terrible for any kind of hard drive performance.

That corsair 430 isn't modular and is a poor choice of psu in most situations.The cooler master v550 or 650 is a good choice.
