What's your opinion on this rig?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I'd like to have your opinion on this rig and ask you some question. I'm new on this forum, so I wasn't sure where i supposed to post that kind of thread. Since I'm making an AMD build, i though this might be the right place. Excuse me if it wasn't.

So here's my build : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3omRu

I'll be using this rig only for gaming.
I didn't had a cooler for my CPU because i'm not sure wich one i should be taking. Which CPU cooler would you recommand? An AIO water cooling kit if possible. Also, I'm not making an out of the gate Crossfire setup. I'll add another r9 280 in around 1 year. And i already own a 500gb HDD.

Here are my questions:

1- Is 750w enough for this rig even if overclock my CPU and both of my GPU?

2- Should i add fans when I'll add another graphic card?

3- I'd like to change the cable of my alimentation by red and black Bitfenix Alchemy sleeved cable. Not all of them, just the one linking the mother and the GPU to my alimentation. What type and how many cable do i need to take?

4- Do you have benchmarks comparing the I5 4670k to fx 8320?

That's all. Thanks for answering and have a great day

PS: Excuse my grammar mistakes, english isn't my mother language.

Hey, ok so first if you want an AIO water cooler I would get an H80i at least, an H100i if you have room for it. I love my H80i and if my chip didnt suck im sure I would be happily running at 4.8 right now.

1.750w is definetly not enough for all of that. I tried running a 7950, 6850, and 8320 all oc'd on my 750w and i got shutdowns when it all was running full bore so 2 280's and a 8320 OC'd will give you shutdowns. I would look at least at a 850 gold rated one or hell, a 1000 watt one. Its always better to have more wattage than you need especially if you someday go tri fire or something.

2. More fans the better. Theres another forum you can check out about how to arrange them (Some people have them all blowing out, some have the ones at the bottom blowing in and ones up top blowing out, etc) Theres many schools of thought on the subject.

3. Im lost on that one, never tried something like that.

4. Heres something but keep in mind the 8320 is about 50+ bucks less and you can OC the i5 to match it fairly easily.

That's the difference between using a good PSU and a budget-oriented PSU like the CX750M.

 

A good quality-made 750W PSU is plenty for this build, but only of course if you keep both 280s at their stock voltages. The PSU you're currently looking at isn't as good as it might seem, so here's a much better PSU than that one:

 

 

The 750W EVGA SuperNOVA G2 for $112.99 shipped from Buy.com:

Nice looking build so far.

I'd be switching that Sandisk SSD for a Samsung 840 PRO variant. My thoughts anyway.

Here is my suggestion for you OP.

Change the GPU's to these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127759&clickid=xpyXl8Q62XMX1SIwyBw46WfZUkTQJ8yQEwCtys0&iradid=97618&ircid=2106&irpid=79301&nm_mc=AFC-IR&cm_mmc=AFC-IR-_-na-_-na-_-na
They are $10 cheaper and they are faster.

Also, for sure change the PSU to either twocables suggestion of the Supernova G2 or to this Seasonic G series http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=PS-SSR750R&c=CJ

Also, think about changing the monitor to this
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs247hp
I have 3 of them and my friend has 2. We both are extremely impressed with the quality and clarity of the monitor and neither of us got a single dead pixel, and two of mine are used lol.

Everything else looks great. Be sure to grab an aftermarket cooler later on!

*EDIT*
Also, Welcome to OCN! biggrin.gif

$112.99 + $7.99 shipping for the 750W SeaSonic G Series. The 750W G2 is, I think, the Super Flower Leadex which is way better (very high-end), and it's $112.99 shipped from Buy.com which is a fantastic deal.

Thank you for your answers guys biggrin.gif

I'll take the h100i this power supply:

http://www.seasonicusa.com/M12II-Bronze-650-750-850.htm

Everything is fine now?

Also do i need to change the fans of the h100i? I'm not sure but i think i read somewhere that they are very noisy. And someone told to buy a i5 4570 on a z87 motherboard to allow a good crossfire and have more FPS in game crossfire. But i'd like to try to overclock. Is there a big difference?

Technically the intel motherboard support pcie 3.0 and AMD only has 2.0 so theoretically 3.0 offers more bandwidth. However in practice pcie 2.0 is perfectly fine and you wont notice a difference, I dont even think a 690 or 7990 can fully saturate a pcie x16 2.0 slot.

Umm what?

Ok so that psu you picked is ok, but honestly, spend the bit of extra money and go with the G2 TwoCables suggested. You will never regret it.
The H100i, ya change the fans, they kinda suck. Though, for the price of fans, just get the Swiftech H220 which comes with great fans already.

Ok now to the what. Who told you to get a 4570 on a Z87 board? That would be retarded, mainly because Z87 boards are for overclocking and the 4570 cant overclock. Also because it would more then likely get worse FPS then the 8320 (im not totally sure). Now, if you wanted a 4670k, THEN you would have a faster processor for most games. The 4670k gets better FPS while gaming then the 8320. Even when they are both OCed. This is because 95% of games use only about 1-2 cores, which is stupid in inself, but I digress. Because of this fact, yes you may see usage up to like 30% on the other cores, but you will notice 2 full cores at like 80+% (depending on gpu) and the rest sort of wherever they want. Granted with your budget, your getting more computer with the 8320.

Oh wow... I'm personally running an i5 2500k @ 4.5ghz and crossfirex 7970's @ 1175mhz on an OCZ 750 Watt Modular bronze ZT PSU full custom water cool loop with ZERO issues.

PSU is a huge factors here. You'll be fine as long as you invest in a good quality PSU.
