Silent Powerhouse

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 

Hey all, I'm coming from the AMD board, and was kind of hinter to build an Intel PC instead for what I'm looking for. So hopefully I can build the perfect machine for me with your help!

 

I would like to be able to game most current games at max settings. I would like to broadcast, like TwitchTV. I do a lot of photo editing with Photoshop, and will probably start trying my hand in video editing as well. I have a 24" 1080 monitor for now, but would like to upgrade it to a higher resolution sometime in the future. I would like energy efficient, along with the machine staying very silent! It's going to by right by my bed. But still would like it to tear through anything I can throw at it. I don't care for bench marks, I'm not knowledgeable in terms of overclocking either. I'm most likely not going to buy two cards, just one should suffice! I also don't need style points, it's going under my desk anyway.

 

Price is kind of up in the air for now, I'm looking for the best bang for buck, in terms of meeting my requirements.

 

MOTHERBOARD

Heavy favorite would be the H87 Performance.

$100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157378

 

PROCESSOR

Sold on the Xeon E3-1230V3.

$250 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116906

 

GRAPHICS PROCESSING UNIT

I'm liking the Gigabyte GTX 770 right now.

$330 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125463

 

POWER SUPPLY

Looks like the Rosewell Fortress 650W is the better option here?

$100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182083

 

MEMORY

I'm looking at the Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB right now, thoughts?

$150 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148663

 

STORAGE

Crucial M500 480GB, that should actually be good enough for now. Seeing how I'm using under 300GB currently.

$230 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148695

 

COOLER

Most likely going with the Noctua NH-U12S, thoughts? Should I get one of the other models??

$70 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608040

 

DISC DRIVE

Pioneer?

$65 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827129075

 

CASE

It looks like right now I'm going with the R4!

$79 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352020

MOTHERBOARD
No clue. Would like the option to add a ton of RAM!

PROCESSOR
Currently debating the 4670k. Thoughts?

GRAPHICS PROCESSING UNIT
Still browsing.. I have zero interest in utilizing two cards at the same time. If anything I'd rather buy a cheap card now for under $100, and buy something crazy later.

POWER SUPPLY
Something very energy efficient!

MEMORY
Would like to start out small, like one stick of 8GB of RAM, and add more 8GB sticks later.

STORAGE
I'm thinking  200GB+ SSD for OS and games, and 1TB drive for everything else.

CASE
Would like a tool-less design! I don't even wanna break out a screw driver to get inside, or swap things out if I can avoid it. It just makes it less annoying to clean out the case.

COOLER
It looks like right now I'm going with the H80i, thoughts?
What is your budget?
I like to do the same things your wanting to do so I've been looking into this for a while.


*EDIT*
PS: I saw your AMD thread, saying you've only owned intels in the past. You dont need to make up some story for us to help you, we do it because we want to thumb.gif

I didn't make that up, I only have owned Intel in the past lol. The last post in that thread suggested I go back with Intel.

I mean I would want to stay around 1k, but it's very flexible.

1K for streaming, easy! (maybe a little over wink.gif)

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V3 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($244.98 @ SuperBiiz)
CPU Cooler: Nexus LOW-7000 R2 CPU Cooler ($24.95 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus Z87-Plus ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($152.99 @ NCIX US)
Memory: A-Data XPG V1.0 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($67.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($139.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($54.98 @ OutletPC)
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon R9 280X 3GB Video Card ($324.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 650W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($76.50 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($14.99 @ Newegg)
Case Fan: Rosewill Hyperborea 57.5 CFM 120mm Fan ($10.78 @ Amazon)
Total: $1193.12

Ok so I went over, sue me lol.
I went with that Xeon mainly because its 4-core/8-thread instead of the 4670k's 4-core/4-thread. This will help you with streaming, plus it uses low amounts of power so less heat and less power consumption (especially since your not overclocking). The CPU cooler is because sometimes the stock cooler can get loud while gaming. I also picked an aftermarket quiet fan to replace that one on the cooler. That motherboard is waaay past overkill, but it has some cool features you might like so why not. Plus then if you want a more powerful CPU later that you can overclock (being the 4770k) then you can simply switch the processor, no big deal. I chose 8GB (2x4GB sticks) for two reasons. I stream, and I've never used all of my 16GB, excluding when using Adobe After Effects for rendering (which will just use as much as you have so no big deal). 8GB will be enough to start, you can add another 2x4GB kit when you feel necessary. The GPU is fantastic, should do you great for streaming (you can probably stream at high settings on just about every game. Note that twitch only allows newer users to stream at 720p). Case is a nice quiet case with great airflow. PSU is fantastic, I would have gone for a 550W, but this was literally $3 more, so why not.

Any questions feel free to ask!

*EDIT*
I understand what you said at the top of this page now lol. I thought it said you came from an AMD motherboard not the AMD board on the forum lol. I fail!

It's all good lol. I like the case, I'm going with your suggestion. However, I found two that I like, for the same price, but can't tell the difference between them!? I listed it in the original post, it's updated. 

I think I might go with your storage suggestions as well. But instead go with 3TB; why not, right?

Still looking over the other suggestions now. Thanks man.

Thank you for the info! Well then, in that case I'm just going with the cheaper option! Thank you once again.

 

Also I updated the original post some more. Those price don't include the coupon discounts, and I'll also compare to other stores.

I think the Xeon E3-1230 v3 is better for your purposes than a 4670k,. Also OCing the 4670k defeats the purpose of going "silent" since you will change the fan speed profile to a higher level, making the fans produce more noise. Just putting this out for more info since I read that you are not going to OC. Lastly, Xeon is techinically an i7, with a bit lower power consumption, also its integrated graphics is disabled, and has a 100mhz lower clock from an i7 4770.

The PSU is great, but depending on your graphics card, a 550w variant of it should be good enough for you. It is modular and $5 cheaper as well.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182262

You do not need an H80i for your CPU cooler, its stock fan is noisy when the processor is being loaded. I think a tower heatsink with a quiet fan should be great for your purposes, something like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608040

You can actually buy an SSD now, the Crucial M500 is a great budget SSD, if you do not mind spending abit more, the M550 is its upgrade version.

Regarding the HDD, I kinda prefer multiple 1TBs over a single 3TB. I had a 2TB Barracuda not so long ago, and it already has bad sectors after seldomly using it for a few months since the HDD is strictly for backup/storage. You have a huge case anyway!


All in all, these are my recommendations for you, assuming you want ATX form factor (im kinda biased with mATX though), I hope you don't mind its color scheme though, since I'm into performance over looks thingy. I could replace the parts if you do mind a color scheme inside your case.

  • CPU: Xeon E3-1230 V3 $249.99
  • COOL: Noctua U12S $69.99
  • MOBO: Asrock H87 Fatal1ty Performance $99.99
  • RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 1600mhz $74.99
  • GPU: HIS R9 280x IceQ X2 $319.99
  • SSD: Crucial M500 240GB $119.99
  • HDD: Seagate Barracuda 3TB $109.99
  • PSU: Roswill Capstone 650w $89.99
  • CASE: FD Define R4 Blackout $99.99

TOTAL PRICE: $1234.91 No budget was stated, so this is the best price to performance rig that I came up with. Also, I only checked on Newegg, so other stores with the same part could actually be cheaper, thus reducing its total price!

  • Xeon because I already explained it above. I too, will get my hands on this processor someday!
  • U12S has great cooling capability, NF-F12 is quieter than H80i stock fan, and $30 cheaper. We can replace this with something cheaper, let me know.
  • H87 Fatal1ty performance has great features for its price.
  • Ballistix Sport is a great RAM, no doubt. It is a great OC ram too but you do not need to OC it. Add another stick for 16GB in the future!
  • HIS 280x is a great price/performance GPU, it runs cool and quiet in my experience. I built several rigs with these cards and they are great specially I live in a tropical country where at least 30C ambient temps are normal.
  • M500 is a great budget SSD, as I stated above. You can temporarily ditch this or get a 120GB variant if the price is too much for you since you're not really going to put any games on it, because productivity programs (like Photoshop) and OS has better benefits than putting games in it. Samsung 840 EVO is a great alternative as well but a bit more expensive.
  • Did not change the 3TB Barracuda because maybe I only had bad experiences with big capacity HDDs.
  • Did not also change the PSU for your peace of mind. Although a 550w Capstone can run this rig pretty much fine.
  • I randomly picked a case in your link xD I had built an mATX variant of it though, the Define Mini. And it surprised me how great is that case is in terms of everything.
  • I did not include an Optical Drive since I assumed you already have one in your old computer. Waste of money buying a new one and IMHO there is no need to use an Optical Drive nowadays. I never used one in any of the rigs I built.
