Thread Starter 
Hello everybody

i hope this is the right place to post.

i would love some help i am in the process of bying my birthday present to myself and would love some help.

here is what i am looking at here in canada.

Intel Core i7 2600K Quad Core Unlocked Hyperthreading Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ $329.99

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 C9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit $96.16 X2

YOUR TOTAL $2,429.14

reason for 2 ssd's i wanted to run them in raid 0

any suggested changes

i need a quiet case so willing to change fans or padding to achieve that goal.
was thinking either the 800D or silverstone fortress FT02B-W

still working on price could be a bit lower.
still adjusting build any advice?
still gotta add keyboard & mouse
would anybody suggest going water?if so what would be a good setup that is not stupid expensive.
thanks in advance to everybody

That build looks great. You'll be one of the envied on OCN, nice rig. Only thing I gotta comment on is your SSDs. If you're going for sheer speed and speed only, the Crucial C300 (64GB model, 128GB model) have some ridiculously high (355MB/s per) read speeds. Providing your motherboard has SATA 6Gb/s, (which it does), your RAID0 will be around the speed of 3 Vertex 2's.

Everything else on your list looks good. 1200W might be a little too much though, you'll only need around 500W, maybe, to run your system. an 800W PSU would be perfect if you'd want to SLI later with your 570.

why are the vertex2 different price???

id get two C300s. unless you plan on SLI there is no reason for the deluxe over the pro nor the 1200watt psu. a 800-100 watt woudl be overkill let alone a 1200 watt psu. you need 3 580gtx in SLI to demand that type of power. On the other hand my Sb system OCed to 5.1ghz with x570gtx OCed very high pulled 980watt from the socket.

thanks for the feedback

yeah the drives prices are based on the deals available so that is why the differance.i looked at the crucials but the vertex 2's had better write performance and 250 average speed.i could be mistaken i will have to check.

the other silverstone's aren't in stock so went with the 1200W plus i might go water later and as you mentioned the OCing can use quite a bit.

would you recommend the gigabyte over the asus there sin?what you using for cooling going 5.1 OC there sin.

going to bed now will check back 2moz.

TRIM does not work in RAID for ssd, unless u like reinstalling windows often i dont suggest it.

Besides it has no real world benefit to have the ssd in RAID anyways.
