Will these parts work together efficiently

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I'm putting together a game plan for a new build, and I wanted to get opinions from the local experts to see if all the parts listed below will all work together OK. Suggestions appreciated....

Computer Case
Thermaltake Case Power Supply Core EATX Full Tower CA-1B6-00F1WN-​00 Black

Asus Rampage IV Black Edition EATX DDR3 2133 Intel LGA 2011 Motherboard

Intel Core i7-4930K Processor - BX80633I74930K (LGA 2011)

Corsair Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H80i

Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10)

XFX Double D R9 290 947MHz 4GB DDR5 DP HDMI 2XDVI Graphics Card R9290AEDFD

EVGA SuperNOVA 1300G2 ATX12V/EPS12V 1300W 80Plus Gold Power Supply 120-G2-1300-XR

Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98 (x2)

At first glance, you've selected an LGA 2011 motherboard and a LGA 1150 CPU. These two items are not compatible as they are two completely different platforms.

You will need to find an LGA 2011 motherboard to go with an LGA 2011 GPU, or an LGA 1150 motherboard to go with a LGA 1150 CPU.

The DDR4 memory you've chosen is also incompatible for that motherboard. You need DDR3 memory and the PSU is WAY overkill for a single 290.

OK, thanks. I updated it to change the processor and ram to something more compatible.

So, what Asus mobo would work with

Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz) (BX80646I74790K)
and
Crucial Ballistix Sport 32GB Kit (8GBx4) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) CL16 DR x8 Unbuffered DIMM 288-Pin Memory BLS4K8G4D240FSA

And, if not Asus... what would be a good high end mobo to consider?

I liked Asus because it has built in overclocking capabilities.

And... for the hard drive, is this the best SSD right now?

840 MZ-7TD500 500 GB 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive

I noticed this one has the "4th-generation 3-Core Samsung MDX Controller" where the 840 EVO-Series does not, so this appears to be the difference between the two units and why the 840 MZ costs more.

A really big help would be.. how much is your budget.
post #8 of 36
That PSU is way overkill, you could run 3 of those cards on that... Do you plan on adding more cards?

And personally I would go with a nice air cooler over an AIO cooler. Air coolers are less expensive, cool just as well at much lower volumes and are much more reliable. Look at something like the Noctua NH-U14s.

Why build that system and then completely bottleneck it with a 290, a middle of the road card? It would be like buying a Ferrari then putting wooden wheels on it....

As of this writing, that system is entirely unbalanced, and needs a bit of help - a lot of help, a lot of money is just getting thrown away. Just off the top of my head, using the money "spent" on that build, I would drop to an Haswell i7, drop the PSU down a bit, drop from 32GB to 16 GB, buy two SSD and Raid them, and also buy a 980.

Realistically, using a 32" Vizio as your display (1080P) being the highest resolution you are going to be using, I would drop to an i5, 8GB, and a 970 - pocket the rest of the cash for a nice weekend out or something.
