My First i7

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Well not that anyone will actually care lol, but after being away from the computer game for about year I am back with ....

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=10427789

My first i7 1366 build. I figured the 1366 would be overall better than a 1156.

Given the responses I should state the fan was a mistake and plan on replacing it with something better once the shipment gets here.

my suggestions

1)get rid of the wd black unless u really really want it
id suggest u go for a bigger 1tb hdd which would set u back by roughly the same

2)get a decent corsair or any other reliable power supply
trust me, its important

3)u need a video card aka gpu
get a nvidia 450 or 430
u cant run ur system without a gpu

otherwise awesome build

cheers

Personally id swap the cpu cooler for a prolimatech megahalem or corsair h70. Also try going for some 7-7-7-20 timings corsair ddr3 kits, instead of the cl9 kits.

Yep, you won't be able to oc much, if at all, with that CPU cooler - I believe that cooler is meant for servers, not desktops.

Surely an i5-750 1156 combo would have suited your needs?

My nit pick.
Instead of the WD Black. Get a Samsung F3 1TB. They are cheaper and as fast, if not faster than the WD Black.

As someone said above, get a H50/H70. A little bit more, but it's a bit better than a standard air cooled CPU heatsink.

1. I do really want the 6gb/s and never use anything over 500gigs. anyway for the most part. Always end up reformatting by then. I might get a second one and do raid 0.

2. Yeah I dont plan on keeping that antec that comes with the case for long. It was just a way to temporarily save on the cost of the PSU. didnt have enough all at once for a seperate PSU ... seemed like a good comprimise. Im deffinately going to be nervous for the few days I have that one running.

3. Yeah I have a 9800GTX+ in my closet and will pick up another one for SLI. Or may end up getting a 400 series if I dont like the way the 9800 runs.

The CPU cooler was a mistake I didnt catch in time before it all shipped out. Its actually a server cooler lol. Will have to pickup a new one after RMAing that one. And as far as memory goes im not that concerned with a little bit higher timing. Its a budget build anyway.

*edit*

I like that corsair h70 I might get that. I use to WC .... had all the custom built stuff. I like the simple design of that corsair ...... is it really any good?
