Buying New Comp Parts, Already Have A8N-E and OCZ El Plat

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently built a new comp, the one in my profile and now my friend wants me to build him one.

I have the A8N-E and OCZ El Plat. Rev 2 ram in my comp. I was thinking I'm going to put those in his computer and upgrade mine.

I wasnt sure, but I was thinking of the DFI Ultra NF4 and maybe some G.Skill for me.

Any suggestions on other mobo's or ram that would OC well with a 4000+ sandy.

Thanks

Save a few bucks and get the 3700 over the 4000. You won't be using the 12X multiplier with good ram, so put that money elsewhere to beef up the system. Btw, he is planning on running nonstock,correct?

I wasnt really specific.

I have all the parts in profile and my comp is running fine.

When I build his comp, im going put my mobo and ram in his system and upgrade mine. I already have the 4000+ and was looking for a mobo and ram that would be good ocers

Ohh ok, so you already have purchased 2 4000's? If not, don't you have to buy him a processor? If so, get the 3700 instead of the 4000. You'll want to use the 10X multiplier with good ram, so 11X and higher are not needed. If you did in fact already buy him a processor,then disregard this. As far as motherboards for your system, I suggest DFI or MSI.

As of now, I only have 1 4000+

I plan on getting the 3700+, but are u suggesting I use that in my computer and give him the 4000+

I'm jus wondering, but wouldnt that be pointless because the 4000+ is clocked higher and I can use the 11x multiplier anyway?

Let me know

He refered to OCing, if you are not the 4000+ would be the better CPU @ default.
If you plan to OC yours and run his at default get the 3700+ for yours and a Big Typhoon to cool it, it will out do the 4000+ by a bunch
Even a conservitive upping to 250MHz HTT (CPU bus speed) and some good DDR500 memory to match it you will not only have a 25% increase in bus speed you will have a very sweet and fast system. At 11x that would give you 2750 overall, and at 10x 2500MHz and even faster than the stock 4000+

Yeah I understand that. I am going to be OCing and his wont be. But is the 3700+ capable of a better OC then the 4000+

And for my mobo, I dont think I'm going to get SLI unless it adds to OCing... which one you think would OC better with the 3700+?

MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum or DFI nF4 Ultra-D

For ram, the G.Skill DDR550 looks really nice, would it be capable with the MSI and DFI... and once again, oc well?? lolll

Thanks Again

The RAM should work well with either board and both boards OC well but you will get far more experenced help here with the DFI
On the CPU, DFI & SanDiego 3700+
