2011 Micro ATX Gaming Build waiting for parts - Page 3

post #21 of 33
I had a 60gb Mushkin callisto deluxe for a boot drive and with all my programs and what not I only used about 35gb (I'm being generous with that). I had steam and all my games and media on my 1tb.

But that board I think you can only get right now from excaliberpc.com, I havent seen it anywhere else.

I just realized there isn't a spot for a sound card once I have two GPUs. Now I'm debating. Hopefully I can get some good deals from some OCN members!

Your not gonna have a spot for any sound card with 2 (dual slot) gpus on any matx rig. The only thing I can think of is you would have to use an atx case and use a PCIE riser like this.

And in all honesty SSD's are fantastic but I would get better components first then add one later on when you have extra cash.

if i was you i'd buy asus M4A78LT-M or M4A78LT-M LE. the beauty with amds is that u can buy the cheapest motherboard on the market & it will support all range of processors from the chepest to the most expensive ones. performance/per cost is always better with them. then get Athlon II X4 640 or 645, if u got some more cash then choose Phenom II X4 805 or even Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition. i've built few pcs like that based on that motherboard & they performed really well with hefty overclock. later you can always put flagship cpus as an upgrade with bios update.
as for case try finding Cooler Master Elite 341 case (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=5426) - this is by far the cheapest solution for the cooling ability u get. u can place 4 120mm fans in there. the only mini case i know with such huge potential. hope it helps!

Since hes talking about using 2 gpus 6950s at that, there is no point in going amd. I just sold my AMD rig and while I liked it the performance just wasnt there. My rig would get destroyed by an intel rig (test done at 1920x1080 look in the ATI section they are there somewhere) with the same gpus (6870s) even though my 945 was at 4.0, Amd is ok for budget rigs but if he wants to put 2 powerful gpus in his build there is no point because the AMD architecture just isnt powerful enough to push those cards.

Well I'm hoping evga releases a micro atx because I just saw on their micro atx for 1156 there is actually a pci slot above the first pci e. Also after thinking about it for the past couple hours while watching weeds. I dont need a SSD waste of money for my purpose. By the way thank you for all the posts you have been very helpful. Will be repping everyone here soon for all the great help.

Thanks for the AMD suggestion but for now I'm an intel guy. That case you posted is great. Did you see that blacked out HAF they have for $149.99


Random question for you OCNers how high of an over clock do you think I can get on the stock cooler? I don't know why but stock heat sink over clocking is fun. These chips still have that 100c limit and 105c for xeons?

post #27 of 33
I believe 72c is the recommended max for these chips but I'm willing to be you could hit 4.0 easy on the stock heatsink.

72c holy cow these must run super cool. Any suggestions on RAM guys? I was thinking probably muskin maybe g skill or corsair.
post #29 of 33
Everything you mentioned is good, I decided to get some super talents since its been awhile since I have used them. I have had both mushkin and g.skill recently and I preferred the mushkin ridgebacks much more than the ripjaws. G.Skill's ram is usually cheaper though so it depends on where you stand with your budget.
