BBB[Burfday Boi Build!][MB/CPU/GPU/WC]

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
This is project Nausea Oooowl.

Im thinking of makin an awsome setup for me 18Birthday this July...which is also my computers 3rd birthday haaa =D [Ballons rise]

Anywho

Budget of around £450 ish...Depending on parents, £500 ish max.

This is what i have planned...


Note: The build plans are on photobucket so i'll type it also below

[I just like the pretty pictures]


Here goes...

Thoughts and feelings first of all.

Im going to the Nvidia side...Sorry ATI - Maybe when the 4000 series comes out, atm the dual GPU motherboards are better than the Crossfire ones in price and pretty heatpipes.


Well heres the computer plan...



And now the watercooling...





Tada

For the people who cant see photobucket...

AMD X2 5000+ Black Edition
Asus M2N-SLi Deluxe SLi Motherboard [W/Heatpipes]
BFG 8800GT OC

And the watercooling summary...

D-Tek Fuzion Waterblock
Laing DDC-1T Pro Pump
Black ICE Stealth GT II [240]
Feser One Yellow coolant X2 [Its low conductive...pretty much non conductive?]
2 Random fans


Whats your opinions guys?

Total Cost: £473

I would of liked to add in a 36GB Raptor, but i'd much prefer to give watercooling a go, as its a brilliant laugh =]

Thanks for reading ^.^

Owlie, aka Louis.

Forgot T Spliiter for res T-Line =]

If i had a res with the nifty dangerden fill port, would it go like this...

[Diagram didnt work =P]

Line up to fillport @ top of res
LINE-->RES-->LINE

So thats the res in the middle, and the line in the top goes up to the fillport

^^

Haunt, I think it's a great idea for your 18th BDay! The only bad thing I've heard about the M2N is that the reporting temperatures are sometimes off. A windsor and brisbane core might report funky readings. My knowledge in regards to WCing is limited but the actual hardware you picked out (proc, mobo, vid card) looks good. The 8800GT is a beast, be prepared to handle it
What kind of PSU are you going with?

Good luck with your purchase man

I've got an Aspire 550w, will do teh job for now

Not a well heard make, but the quality is suprisingly good


I might try N' Save up a little more for a waterblock on the 8800GT, although im unsure whether i'd get much benifit from overclockin it due to the whole 'CPU Bottleneck'

Blackie will be running @3.2GHz+ [Please motherboard...I asked nicely]

Any bottleneck on that?

Also

240 Rad, might have trouble in the summer [Yes we do have warmth in England...sometimes] Might spend a fiver more and get the 360 even if i only have 2 fans on it

I'll reserve my opinion for prior to the time in in question.
Why, there will be some up comming MB developments that may sway your purchase in that respect

Tellz me the juicy details =P [I dont want a *****e motherboard again]

Ya think a Blackie @3.2Ghz would be alright with a Zalman 9500/9700? [Bout' 25c is the hottest ambient here in england]

Cos that would save me about £150, meaning WD Raptor =] N' maybe even Q6600 ah i dunno

Look what you have done >.>

Haunt, are you sure it's not ATX-AS550W-BK? I couldn't find anything on ATZ-AS550W-BK.

In reference to the ATX-AS550W-BK, I'm not sure that will be enough 12volt amperage wise. I believe it only does 20amps. I think the 8800GT requires a little bit more then that. You may want to verify but I think you need at least 30amps for the total system. Source: http://aspireusa.net/product.php?pid...e215256ba7ec8a

Good luck
