Ultimate PC Build Log

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my friend cam home from the Navy on leave for 2 weeks, way out of the swing of technology, has a near endless wallet, and wants to build the ultimate PC. He consulted me and asked what to buy. So here is what I choose.Most have already been bought.

Updated 6/21/07

RED= HAVE
Computer
mobo: Asus Striker Extreme (i know its the same as p5n32-e sli)[
cpu: qx6700
psu: silverstone 850w (should be enough i think)
gpu: xfx 8800 ultra SLI 685/1150 stock
ram: g.skill pc2 8000 4-4-4-5 1000mhz (ordered being shipped)
case: CM stacker (ordered being shipped)
sound: x-fi something
os hd: raptor 150gb x2 (raid0)
stor. hd: 500gb sata
opt. drive: dvd-r
mouse: Razer copperhead (he owns 2)
keyb: g15 probably
OS: xp 32 and vista dual boot

Water cooling
cpu: d-tek Fuzion (haven't heard any complaints yet)
chipset: (using the tons of copper it already has)
gpu: DD 8800 x2
rad: GTS stealth 240mm x2
pump: d5 non variable speed (will run it at max anyways)
tube: tygon 1/2 ID 12'
fluid: non conductive for now, probably go water later.
fans: haven't got yet.

I'd guess 20k 3dmark06 after oc's.

Good job?

Actually the striker is the same PCB as the P5N32 E SLI but besides all the extra flashy features it actually is able to give higher voltages to the CPU and RAM

im thinking about soldering the extra 4 mosfets on to my P5N32 and flashing the bios to a striker

Ok, my friends Ultra's came in the mail yesterday and I decided to get a headstart on OC'ing his cards so I won't have to later when all of his parts are here.

10 minutes ATItool stable.

SLI
684/1728/1150 max

Single card#1
684/1674/1150 max

Single card#2
702/1728/1150 max

It sucks really because if one card can reach 702 and the other can't...well you get the picture. It limits the OC in SLI.

Also compare the scores of them.
17325 My GTX at 648/1566/1026
17573 Ultra's at 684/1684/1150

I smell BS here, anyone else?

I'm still trying to figure out why it didn't improve much. If anyone has some info, spread the word please.

When your budget is 5k+- I don't think you really look at price. Anyways, the cards are 684 stock, not every gtx can get 684.

They are not just overclocked GTXs. They have revised silicon that allows for higher core speeds. They also have better GDDR3.

Justwanted to mention that DDR3 Ram Dimms are out already so you probably should try to find some of these and add them in the build along with another mobo if this one doesnl;t support ddr3 ram.
