Cavi's First Intel Build: interactiv 2.0

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm really excited about this one! I have decided that the P55 chipset would be my next build and I just returned from Micro Center with it in hand. I have made some purchases and will start with a picture of everything in their boxes to satisfy for now.

List of parts in hand:
Intel i5 750
EVGA P55 FTW
OCZ3P1600LV4GK (2x2GB 7-7-7 @ 1.65v)
Corsair 650TX
Corsair H50
Lian Li PC-60FNWB

Parts being recycled into build:
Auzen Forte
Sapphire 4870 (for now anyway lol)
WD Caviar Black 640GB


I am very much looking forward to finalizing the rest of the build and getting this thing running!

UPDATE: I finally decided on a case! When I get all my new parts together I will start with pictures

ok, some pictures (finally!) That H50 was a beast to install. I am going to start with an exhaust configuration with it, using the Corsair provided fan to push, and a 1000rpm Scythe Ultra Kaze to pull (pics of that yet to come, woman has the camera again).

We'll see how that performs, but the config happened at the expense of the Lian Li case fan provided in the case. I could yet use that fan to push instead of the Corsair, but I can't find any stats on any of that.

Finally, all my parts together! Switched out the Zalman for the H50, currently my Zalman does well but just not well enough for me to use one again...


A look at the chip in the motherboard


And a look at the case with the motherboard inside

Oh nice brother!

I'm jealous, but this should work out great for you. Extremely huge upgrade from the 7750!

I vote the K62, but I'm preferential to black interiors. Both look like extremely great cases though.

I'm leaning that way as well (cheaper). I love my Kuma but it's time to do some serious OC damage here. And look, we'll practically have the same motherboard! LOL

I say K-58W due to the better looking window, and spray the inside if it's no trouble.

Just preference, K-62 if you're set on one of those.

Well here we go, already switching the motherboard up!

I am going to go back to Micro Center and return the UD4P and grab the EVGA P55 FTW. Just can't resist... still trying to decide on a case though, and possibly a different cooler. Always the hardest decisions for me!

I'm reconsidering the K62 heavily simply because it's cheaper... and it's only 1 pound heavier?!

P55 FTW eh? Go big or go home I suppose!

I decided I'll at least try to join you, I put my computer on craigslist so we'll see what happens. Last time I did that I got a bunch of, 'Oh the economy is bad, you should sell it to me for $550' and other absurd things. So we'll see.

I think I'd be going with the P55 SLI....non FTW. Money is money! But I like that they have both 1156 and 775 mounting holes around the cpu's, great idea!

P55 FTW... happens to be on sale at Micro Center right now for the same price I got the UD4P, kind of a no brainer since I already spend that money!

PLUS! I decided on a case! I just ordered a Lian Li PC-60FNWB for $155 shipped.

Good luck with the sale man. Might have to compare notes and all that jazz!

EDIT: this is my 1337 post
