Looking To Build New and Relatively "Futureproof" Comp - Page 3

post #21 of 26
I have an Tuniq and a 8800GTS 640MB in an Antec P180. Note that the dual chamber design results in a (fairly cramped) mid size case.. It all fits for me, so I have no worries at all. Any case without a side fan that fits a 120mm in the back will deal easily with the Tuniq Tower.

Plus, a quick look at the layout of the lian li pretty much convinces me that the video card won't be an issue either.

Well if you'd be confident in it fitting to buy it then i have no reason to not get it. It looks like an excellent case and it has excellent reviews. Now comes the wait until the price drop of 4/20. Then i will order my new beast of a machine

I know this could probably go in a different forum, but i'm completely new to overclocking. I'd probably be happy with OCing the Q6600 to 3.2? I've heard of being able to go 3.6 on air but i'd be more than happy with 3.2-3.4 To do this do i have to OC both the processor and RAM? Or just the processor? I'll go meander some of the forums to try and learn a little, before bed, getting near 2am here haha. Don't want to leave the knowledge!

Just the FSB and processor. As I stated earlier, DDR2 800 RAM is just fine to hit an FSB of 400 MHz (and thus 3.6GHz with the Q6600) with RAM at a 1:1 divider and STOCK speeds.

Pretty much speaking japanese to me right there but is the 400mhz FSB possible with the mobo i plan to get? Because 3.6 would be awesome as long as it doesn't melt my case

I think you should be fine. It's partly a matter of luck.

For now, I think you've made a good selection of parts. We can discuss the overclocking part in more detail when you get to it (ok, partly because it's 2AM and I am too sleepy to think)

I agree with the 2AM statement, i'm going to hit the sack. Thanks a lot for the input, it is greatly appreciated. The only thing i remain to toss around is the RAM but i've got a couple days to mull it over.

Thanks again!
