Any compatibility issues?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, guys.

As some of you are aware, I'm in the process of perfecting my build using the NewEgg Wish List.

I'm at a point now where I'd like to know if there are any compatibility issues you know about with this.

That's all. I'm not looking for anything else yet.


The parts:My Public Wish List.

Again, I'm only looking for any known compatibility issues. I'm particularly concerned with the memory.

I'm also considering the P5N-E SLI, even though I may never care about SLI. I'm being offered one for $85 shipped, and so I figure "wow, why not?" But it sounds like I wouldn't be able to get those pretty mushkins, and may have to forego the Tuniq Tower or Zerotherm Nirvana.

So those are some other types of compatibility issues I'm looking for.

In general, if it's not going to work properly, then I wanna know.


Now again, I'm not yet looking for opinions on the parts I've chosen. I'm only interested in learning about what I've put together at the Egg as for how it will work together, or how it won't.

No opinions allowed yet.

Thank you for your time.

Everything looks fine and dandy to me. I don't have any experience with that ram but I haven't heard anything bad about it. Have you hard of compatibility issues with it and that's why you are asking?

I was inspired to ask by the ASUS P5N-E SLI thread which mentions how that board in particular is picky about memory and I was reminded of how some people at NewEgg had certain compatibility issues that I can't quite recall now, so it reminded me to find out if there are any possibilities for compatibility issues with this entire thing, obviously including the case. After all, I have about a month to continue perfecting this, so I figure I could spend that time making sure I ask questions.

I want to make sure that everything is gonna go smoothly from how everything physically fits together to how it works together.

Just throwing this out there:

My Gigabyte GA-P965-DS3 rev 1.0 board only supports up to 2.1v for its RAM. I'm not sure if you can pump more into it with the P35 boards, but that Mushkin RAM appears to favor voltages right at the edge of what my motherboard supports (2.1-2.2v), which might hinder performance on your RAM if you overclock it.

Just something to think about and look into.

Edit: Oh, and that many SATA devices is seriously pushing it on that DS3L. You're using three out of four SATA ports with dual SATA optical drives, the hard drive, and if you use the eSATA port on the RC690 case, then you're all out of parts. And 250GB isn't all that much space, so if you decide you need a storage drive later, something is either going to have to go, or you're going to be in the market for a PCI SATA card.

Oh, it might not be all that much space for you, but check this out:

I have two 40GB hdd's (one is just for storage, such as My Documents and backup stuff).

Between the two, I'm using a combined total of 25.54 GB. This is after more than 4 years of usage. I would get an 80GB, but I'm getting much more value out of the 250.

Beyond that, I'll be perfectly okay regarding everything else.

Now what I should find out is what the highest voltage the DS3L supports...

So, what does APACK mean?

Where did you see APACK exactly? Because I'm not seeing it anywhere.

It's on the front of the box for the ZEROtherm Nirvana. I remember seeing this phrase, or something like it, "plus, it's APACK".

...what? lol I'm waiting for that person who said this to reply.
