And in all honesty, you don't need 1K power supply, i have clocked my CPU over 5 GHz and also an max overclock on my GPU and the max i drew was like 550 watts, so 1K PSU is really not necessary.
you do want a good brand PSU like Seasonic, Cooler master or Corsair (they are all made by Seasonic) I personally would go with Cooler Master V850 because of its very good reviews and excellent warranty replacement service from Cooler Master.

As for the Motherboard, i would go with UD5 or Gaming G1, i have the last one and i like it very much and it has M.2 Nvme support.

Is that the board you are referring to?

FWIW, I've got my 8370-e clock to 4.8 and a custom skyn3t-ish bios on my titan.

I still have much head room on my 850-x

just sayin..

I've heard that the UD3 line has had troubles, but I've also read where they've been amazing. It's part of that "cant really tell til you try it" category. That's a category I like to steer clear of if the item is going to be a main component in my entire system.

well i can tell you that in teh FX-8 club thread we've seen more issues than happy stories.

take that for what you will.

the asus board https://www.asus.com/ca-en/Motherboards/970-PRO-GAMING-AURA/

IIRC only cost about 10-30$ more than a UD3 and you've got an M.2 slot to use

with one GPU you don't need the 990fx platform other than the usual upgrade vrms that accompany the chip-set. and this board can do SLI if you choose to double up.

trying to stay under 300$ as imho beyond that you should be looking into Used i7's

I've been following the advice I've come across on here and I've dropped my build price on newegg by $30 and feel more confident about it.
The updated list would be: http://i.imgur.com/39q5MSo.jpg

I appreciate all the advice. I've not decided when I will be doing SLI, or even if I will instead of just upgrading then SLI in the future from there.

I'm going to stick with the 1000w PSU as it has the 5yr warranty and is a bit cheaper than the others. I also trust EVGA with most of their products, so it fits in my opinion.
I've followed FlailScHLAMP's advice and went with the 970 PRO GAMING AURA, the leds got my attention...
post #13 of 44
fair enough, iirc those evga psus are pretty decent

i would just like to point out.

this board is equipped with a CPu + CPU opt fan header +++ a dedicated water pump fan header + 3 chassi fan headers

you may not need the extra fan hub connector, merely some PWm splitters

What speed ram are you intending on using?

Looks like a good rig to me.

The Asus 970 gaming aura is a nice board an it has some nice reviews so i bet you are going to be very happy with it. I have the Gigabyte 990 FX Gaming G1 and so far its doing its job and i am happy with it so far. There are some quirks with the BIOS though but to be honest i never heard from an "perfect" board, they all have their quirks and +- points, it all comes down to preference.
I chose the Gigabyte over Asus because i had bad experience with them and some good with Gigabyte. Asus warranty is very bad from where i am from and Gigabyte is much better with that.

EVGA is very good indeed, i heard good story's about them and their PSU's are top notch, same as warranty. If you have plans for SLI i would go with 1K PSU too so i think you made an wise decision.
Some people say its overkill and you could just as well use an 600 watt PSU for example but that's totally false.. its not the wattage alone its also the amp on the 12+ rail that is important and can help with overclocking. That is why i chose my Cooler Master V850, it has an very low voltage ripple and delivers more then enough current on the 12+ rail for an hefty overclock for the CPU and the GPU.

If you are happy with your components you picked i would just order it because it seems like a good choice to me.

Good luck with it thumb.gif

For whatever reason, my ram is clocked extremely low, 800mhz. That's not by default.
When I get back to my pc I'll be able to tell you the specifics on my ram. My current motherboard is horrible, a factory build with new psu and gpu and who ever had it before me had some specific ram preordered into the build. 2x8gb I believe 1333 at 9-9-9-13 but that may not be right.

screen shot of cpu-z would help but if you are seeing 800mhz in cpu-z that you've got 1600mhz ram

I would suggest using part of the budget you saved switching boards investing in 8-16 gb of 1866-2133 in atleast CL9, CL 8 would be better but those kit were scares a few years ago.. let alone now

my 2400mhz ram is monitored @ 1200mhz

1333 - 1600 mhz ram will cause you issue in multi instance gaming. well as long as the cas latency isn't insane CL7 would be a good latency with 1600mhz ram

Agreed with the above.

Best is to get 1866 MHz 2x8 GB ram with low latency you can find. I personally have 2400 MHz but to be honest i do not feel much of a difference between 1866 or 2400 MHz ram from what i am doing with my system. You also have to bump the CPU/NB when you have higher speed ram which can cause stability issues and since you told us that you are not going to break records i would go with low latency 1866 or low latency 2133 which gives the best performance.

I bought my 2400 MHz kit because it was actually cheaper than 1866 MHz and it was the same kit only faster.

Yeah i was completely wrong on all of it.

Now I feel foolish, haha.

I've been looking into RAM since I read this and I'm finding some rather expensive units. Just wondering if most 1866 2x8gb are around 80 with CAS Latency at 8.

From recent reviews, the M.2 doesnt like to work. It seems to not read that there is anything connected.
