Finished my build...what do you think?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently "downsized" my system. The last incarnation was a fire-breathing, liquid cooled, overclocked-to-the-hilt, super machine that was a little less than reliable. This was especially a problem considering I use it for my freelance photo work. Here's what I have now:

Case: CM690
Mobo: Abit IP35 Pro
CPU: Q6600 GO @ 3.2 1.35v
RAM: 4 x 1GB Ballistix Tracer 800
PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower 1000 Modular (WAAaaay overkill now -- was running SLi before)
DVD: Samsung SATA
HDD: 1 x WD RaptorX and 1 x WD 500GB 16MB
CPU Cooler: Tuniq Tower 120
GPU: (just arrived) Radeon HD3870x2

I think I could easily get more out of the quad with this board but then again 3.2 is nothing to shake a stick at. I've had a few very minor issues that were resolved but all-in-all this new build has been very good to me so far. How does it rate?

looks very good, you and I have a similar setup. I'm currently running 3.4 ghz @ 1.38. You can push that mobo and processer pretty far. I have yet to hit a wall
