And yet another Sandy Bridge build thread

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So after extensive research I've settled on:

i5 2500k
P8P67 (regular one)
Noctua NH-D14
G.Skill 2x4gb 1333 CL9
SeaSonic 620 S12II

I already have a case, a video card, all that stuff, so no worries. So my reasoning is: no sense in paying extra for i7 2600k, HT and a bit of a performance boost aren't worth that much. P8P67 instead of Evo or Deluxe because I'm not planning on SLI or Crossifre, don't care about extra USB ports, don't need that extra esata and extra lan. 2x4gb 1333 CL9 because it's about $80 cheaper than the same 2x4gb, but 1600 CL8, afaik, latencies and frequency bring a very small performance increase. SeaSonic is supposedly a pretty good PSU manufacturer and that model is also pretty good, though is it perhaps worth to buy a modular version of this model? And the cooler is pretty much the best one (I've read something about Thermalright Silver Arrow, but they don't sell these where I live, so...). Anyways, any comments on that build?

That build looks good. Just OC your ram to DDR3 1600 and see if you can get the case latency down to 7 as those are the sweet spots for bandwidth.
