2 x New Build - Thoughts on either?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Thoughts on either? Any tweaks? I wish I could build the first rig with the I7 - but memory reliability is critical, and I'm pretty sure no ECC ram exists that will pair off with an I7 frown.gif

I prefer the I7 because the software I use relies on a monster CPU, and I could OC it, obviously the Xeon is tricker.

The EVGA SuperNova G2 is the same PSU just with lower efficiency, the P2 is not in any way better then the G2 other then the lower efficiency.
Platinum does not means its better if you are not already aware.

And you can take a 550 watt G2 if you are not going to have anything bigger then a GTX 780.

Thanks! I'll make the changes thumb.gif

After reading your extensive PSU guide a while back, I now ignore the bronze/gold/platinum all together biggrin.gif

80 plus does not matter all that much unless you are trying to save every cent you can on your power bill, or if you have a system that draws huge amounts of power and is loaded 24/7.
Otherwise you are going to spend more on Platinum then you are going to save.

Definitely go for the i7 z170 build, the only reason for x99 build is rendering or heavy apps .
post #6 of 25
Also note that the Thermalright Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme is too big to fit on X99 its going to block both the top PCI-E slot and the RAM slots on both sides.

Damn, I really like Silver Arrows.

I'd love to go the I7 but I need absolute memory stability, unless there's an alternative to ECC that is available for I7 chips =/

The new Noctua NH-D15S is a little bit better and it also fits on X99 as they made the S version asymmetrical.
It does not have a problem with tall RAM either as they have cut a part of the bottom of the cooler out so there is space for tall RAM under the cooler.

The Thermalright Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme does not have any problems with PCI-E slots on Z170 as there is more space but it still has the RAM problem.
