1st Build: Video Editing Workstation

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alrighty, I've been waiting (quite patiently, might I add) for UPS to deliver my order from Newegg. So I finally received my last component this evening (the mobo, go figure. ) So here are the specs, yo.

CPU: i7 980X
MoBo: Asus Rampage III Extreme
Case: HAF X
GPU: EVGA GTX 480
OS Drive: Micron RealSSD C300 (6Gb/s) 128GB
OS: Win7 x64 Ultimate
HDD (Storage): Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB (6Gb/s)
Monitor: Samsung P2770HD 27"
RAM: 12GB (3x4GB) OCZ Reaper Edition DDR3 1333mhz
PSU: XION Power Real 1100w
Keyboard: Microsoft Sidewinder X4
Mouse: Logitech G9x

I'll be putting this bad boy together tonight & tomorrow. I won't overclock it much at first, as I want to get a stable system so I can edit on Premiere Pro and After Effects CS5 ASAP...but in a week or two, I'll do some extreme tweaking (I mean, that's what the EXTREME is all about in the 980x and R3E, right?) Now, I don't plan on watercooling it for at least a year...but I want to deck this thing out in the 'coolest' fans possible... decibels be damned. Any thoughts/recommendation?

Well, of course I'm gonna game on it. It's not going to me the main purpose of the build, but would you really let your stepdad's summer cabin go unused? Not the main purpose, but a totally appropriate usage. I finished the rig last night, ill post the results later on today.
