First of all hi OCN guys !
i've been reading so much on your forums for couple of years, and now i need some advice for a new setup rig i'm gonna buy real soon.
875k looks nice, but it seems it needs real cooling device, and a capable mobo / ram to outburn it full capacities, this is what i was thinking to buy, for a rig that i'll keep for 5 years minimum, i need your advices and PRO / CONS , if its a good deal or not;
CM HAF X
CM 1000w gold
Asus maximus III extreme (sata 6G + usb 3)
evga EE gtx 470 sli
crucial ssd c300 64gb
wd caviar black 1To x2
gskill extreme3 pi 2x2Go @ 2200mhz x2
H70 corsair watercooling
i'm gonna use this for mainly gaming and some video editing, and been waiting for 5 years to buy such a config, and wont touch a thing in it , till next 5 years
(i'm actually running a64 3500+ , asus a8n-e, 6600gt, 4gb ram :/ )
My main question is :
doest this setup unleash the fullhorse power of this 875k with a good OC ? for gaming purposes, could i possibly get at least 4.4ghz with 4cores and HT on ?
thanks for your opinions, and a big hi from france , sorry for bad spelling
Since your budget seems mid-high end I would recommend going with an i7 920/930. You will have triple channel ram for video editing, and they overclock better on lower volts. 4.4ghz is possible on some 920s/930s.
