I don't know much about the OEMs but since Antec has a history of using good OEMs (according to the interwebz) I added them in there because they seem legit.

Antec has a few good units below 750 watts but a thing one should be aware of is Antec units are multi rail.
So if you get a modular one and you put too much hardware on one rail or overload a rail OCP will kick in and shut the PSU off.

Its not a major problem just something everyone should remember and keep in mind.

I am pretty confused on x99 I am not sure about what memory to get. I know nothing about dd4 and what voltage to get.


I was thinking of this for memory


G.SKILL Value 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4-19200) Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15Q-16GNT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231789


Shilka For the Power Supply I picked this one out.

Why do you want to waste money on something you dont need? even 750 watts is way more then enough and if you have too MUCH wattage your are going to drop the efficiency of the PSU.
So if you buy that P2 you are not going to get platinum efficiency from it.

Dont waste money when there is no need for it, spend it on something more usefull.

Shilka,



Yes you are right the 1000 watt psu is overkill. I am using this 860 watt psu in my current system right now. Its pretty solid. Maybe I should use this?

If you have one already then there even less reason to go out and buy a new one.
860 watts is more then enough you could run a full X99 system with overclocks and 3x GTX 970 cards.

Shilka,

Thanks for your advice. I would rather be an informed consumer when i go out and makes purchases. that is why I am asking you folks. I am going with this 860 watt corsair psu for my next build. I can easily overclock to 4.0ghz with the processor I picked out. I have read that 2011- V3 Sockets are stable for overclocking.

The great thing about a PSU is that there isn't too much of a technological change from one generation to another. I have a 5 year old Antec Earthwatts and it's still going strong. If you have a working PSU, then there's no need to go get another one. My 5 year old PSU is probably just as advanced as one you buy today with the same specs and wattage.

The PSU I am using in my current system is rock solid that is why i am using it in this build. Cant go wrong with corsair. I am building a second system because my current system is going to a different location. So I need to start from scratch and build myself a second system. This system is more future proof than my current one.


So here is the final rundown of my system with some modifications. I changed out the psu with 860 watt from corsair. I took Shilkas advice. I am still not sure on the memory I went with 16gb 1.2 volts. I think that should be okay. Not sure?


1. Memory G.SKILL Value 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4-19200) Desktop Memory Model F4-2400C15Q-16GNT

2. Motherboard MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

3. Processor- Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W Desktop Processor BX80648I75820K

4. power Supply- CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

5. Operating system- Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit - OEM

6 Backup drive- WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" NAS Internal Hard Drive - Bulk

7. CD Drive- SAMSUNG 18X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model SH-118CB/BEBE

8 Card Reader- SABRENT CRW-UINB 68-in-1 USB 2.0 Internal Card Reader w/ USB 2.0 Port supports SDHC/VISTA

9 Soundcard- Creative Sound Blaster ZxR PCIe 124dB SNR Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module


Also will my soundcard fit in any PCI Exress slot?

Corsair has not made your AX860 if you are not aware.
You are not getting an SSD?

I already have a 250gb ssd in hand so I am set with my boot drive. As for storage drives. I have two 1 tb western digital blacks. So that is one less thing to spend $$ on. For my case I have an origin Millennium Chasis. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/origin-pc-case-standalone,28079.html
