Rebuild now enhanced with DDR3

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok, I was one of the lucky ones to get a max extreme for 30bux. You can follow my rebuild here. The rig will consist of the following...

-E8400(going back to a quad soon)
-ASUS Maximus Extreme
-2x1 OCZ DDR3 1600 7-7-7-20
-Sapphire 3870(not sure what im doing here. Either CF these or most likely wait for next gen ATI.
-2x Seagate 160GB in RAID 0
-PC Power and Cooling 750 quad(I know over kill... just the way I like it)
-Tuniq Tower(going water soon)
-Win Vista Premium x64
-CM690(switching to full tower when I go watercooling)

I have pics of everything except the new mobo. It will be here tomarrow. My P5e is in the pics below. The pics also show my new RAM next to my old Ballistix 8500. Enjoy...

It's insane just how much DDR3 prices dropped in 3 months. Now to see if their performance has caught up with high end DDR2... I'll be watching...

Arg, A mini update. So, the new mobo won't post. I've tracked it down to RAM as the last possible issue. I mean I have some of everything else laying around to test. I just don't have a spare set of DDR3. So, I hope I can make it work with some cheap Kingston DDR3 tomarrow. If not it's RMA time.

I got the full tower. The Rocketfish from BB for $47.99. Man, its one beastly case. I have not ordered watercooling parts yet, as I want to sort the mobo out first.

Here's a pic of the case dry mounted with the Max Etreme. That'a 15.4" lappy for a size comparsion.

Yes, I do know the Tuniq isnt facing the right direction.

RAM didn't come today, so disappointed. I went ahead and ordered the water cooling parts. My wc list...

-D-tek FuZion CPU Water Block
-Dtek FuZion Intel 775 Pro-Mount set
-Swiftech MCP655™ 12 VDC Pump
-Black Ice® GTX Gen Two Xtreme 360
-3 x Panaflo U1 Ultra Performance 120 x 38m
-RadGrillz™ Stripes 3x120 Aluminum Black
-EK-Multioption RES 250 Rev 2
-FeserView Water Additive - UV Dye - Purple 50ml
-Feser Base Corrosion Blocker 50ml

So, yeah my plans for the case include mounting that rad in roof. Also, a large side window.

Above the black line is where the window will go.


I'm not doing a full window so I can hide my unused cables where the HDD rack clostest to the PSU was. Like so, but with zipties or rubberbands.
