Quiet i7 930 Build - For Longevity - Page 2

post #11 of 30
285 is way over kill for PhysX... you can use a 9800GT/GTX/GTX+ till the end of the month? or a GTX260, even that is over kill...

Damn that thing is a straight BEAST. What fans you got on it?

@ Intelconvert - that is a very valid point. 134.99 @ newegg and that would be able to play most modern games for quite a while, at least til the 4xx's drop in price. That brings my total for this build to $1,250 - a very respectable amount for the quality of everything

You've given me a good idea too intelconvert, I popped the HDs up to 320 each (it was $5 more) and am going to short-stroke it in raid 0. Slow platters? Not any more

HDtach benches showed a nice decrease in access times when i short stroked my HDD

the raid array wil be fine if the drives are reliable.

oh yeah im sure! 1/3 of a 640 gb raid = 210 gb, plenty for games.

And I need to find 2 fans for the HD cage, what are really good cfm/db fans?

For longevity and durability, I strongly recommend an SSD for your OS and software.
Not only are they extremely fast but they are also very resistant to physical damage.

Just watch this guy throw this SSD around:

if the price of the SSD isnt much worse than the other drive, then go for it... but the SSD will most likely be more expensive.

do you really need fans for your HDDs?

an 80gb SSD [intel] is 229.99. my raid is 98.98

and yeah i probably shoud, considering that theres no front intake fans on that case, just a rear/top exhaust, side intake. It needs some more positive pressure, ill be able to run them all at lower speeds then [less noise]

i dont have any intake fans. when my ambient temps are nice and cool, my CPU idles at 28*C and my GPU is at 35*C, HDD is 23*C.

as long as you have vents, the air will come in when your fans are pushing the fan out of the case, creating low pressure inside the case, which then draws in air from outside. your computer isnt too bad about heat, so i wouldnt worry about having a lot of fans.
