i7 2600K Build

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Can you guys check over my plans for my i7 2600K and lmk if I need to make any changes or if there are better options for any of the components?

I have been reading a lot about the Sandy Bridge CPU's but my knowledge is still limited.

I will be pairing my i7 2600K with an ASUS Sabertooth P67 Motherboard. My system will be cooled by a Thermalright Archon in Push/Pull w/ 2x TY-140's. My RAM And PSU are both aimed at uniformity with the inner components as all of them are black and gold along with the Sabertooth. With the RAM, I read that the higher speeds will utilize the best performance from the 2600K. The OCZ Gold RAM I have chosen is 2000 Mhz and I will add another 4 GB when I can afford to. For now, the 4 GB will do just fine, right? Thank You for your help!

Honestly, just for the looks of it. ^_^ The "Tactical Vest" on the Sabertooth looks incredible.

What other recommendations would you make in substitution of the Sabertooth? I'm extremely open to other options. This was just the rough draft of my finalized build. I always enjoy saving money.

I think I'm going to swap the OCZ Gold out for G-Skill Blue Ripjaws.

Thoughts? ^_^

I hope that you wont use a Torrent program, in this new build, I also hope you do not stream movies from anysite OTHER than Netflix.

The Sandy Bridge CPU is DRM locked and will shut down if it feels you are in violation.

Sad but true, I am glad I will NEVER get a DRM locked CPU. I am happy with my Enthusiast 1366 chipset, over that mainstream 1155 garbage.

Here's more info on the DRM. I honestly believe it's a bunch of bs. The only mention I can find of it is a newspaper article which doesn't seem to be trustworthy. Even if it is true, it only seems to effect a single upcoming feature offered by Intel for streaming 1080P HD Movies. I honestly don't think it's going to be nearly as big of a deal as you made it sound like. lol

Re-read your info on the DRM. I think you are a little confused over what it encompasses.

OP - you are going to need to find a way to push some air under that vest. You Archon will not push the air down (which is what the vest needs to be effective). I suspect you can get around it, but know it will keep your board warmer that it would without it unless you get some air through there. It is designed to use the air flow from a downward flowing cpu air cooler to cool what is underneath.
