@2010rig

Thank you, as for your question yes and no I'll be giving my 5870 to my brother with the whole system, I'll put the GTX 470 in my new PC.(Maybe get a second card in a few months or get a GTX 580)

I don't think I'll go for Big Bang Marshall, however the Asus Maximus IV board looks good and hopefully not too expensive.($300-350AUD?)

EDIT:I'm also Interested in NZXT Phantom Case I love the simplicity in HDD/Optical drive mounting as well as the cooling solution.

Anything better other there for $200-230AUD?

Honestly, I'm sure there is, are you ready to spend around $350 U.S. for that board?

Check out this thread:

I just thought of something that is troubling my little mind.

All of the clocks are integrated into the bclk in SB, so you can not raise it much higher than 100, correct?

So how do you run the faster memory? Most of the boards show support for up to 1600mhz DRAM, and then show support with OC for the fatser DRAM (1800 and up).

Wouldn't these boards need to include higher memory multipliers since you can't raise the bclk? That would mean it isn't really an OC to get the memory to run at its rated speed. All your really doing is selecting the correct multiplier, right?

Not sure if this has been asked yet but...

What are people planning to use for memory on these boards? Sticking with the 1600?

Overclocking doesn't work like that anymore, in the BIOS you simply select the speed you want to run it, and that's it. Set it @ 1600 MHZ, and it runs at 1600, select 2000, and it runs at that too.

It performs well at both 1600 & 2000 MHZ, the latter being ideal of course.

Right, but if you can select 2000 mhz without changing the bclk, there is technically no overclock involved... So why would the spec list anything higher than 1600 mhz as OC required.

EX. in my p55 rig, I have to up my bclk to 160, and use the 10x memory multiplier to get it to run at rated speed. This in turns means I had to OC to get the memory to run at its rated speed.

Does SB simply have 16x 20x 21x multipliers for the DRAM?

Thank you 2010rig, I'm really tired now I need to go sleep, I have one final question if you can look over it and tell me if I made the right choice of 1st set of parts.

Note: The Motherboard/CPU and PSU will be bought after everything settles down.

I'll upload the picture now:



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I might add another F3 in there, I can use SSD for OS while f3 can be set in raid 0 correct?

Unfortunately we in Australia do have some parts more expensive then in the UK or US, however I don't think it is that bad.

I know what you mean, that's how it is in our current i7 processors, but they have simplified everything, since you no longer have to mess with the BCLK to OC. you now simply select the speed you want it to run @, and it does.

Check out this video @ 10:40, you'll see what I mean:
