Replacing 1366 with 1155 SB (need help)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all.

Almost two months I have been waiting for my 1366 ordered build, still not in stock. And after reading some threads and benchmarks. I decided to go with the newer technology. I am building a performance gaming PC only.

Could you please replace these parts for a Sandy Bridge build. The price can stay the same or go a little bit higher/lower depending on performance gain if higher and performance/price if lower. The parts must be at least as good as these listed.

This should be a performance gaming PC built around 2 Nvidia's GTX580 video cards in SLI. So overclockability is a must.

Intel Core i7 950 3,06GHz
Corsair Cooling Hydro H70
Asus Rampage III Extreme, X58
Dominator-GT "Triple Channel" 3 x 2 Gt DDR3 2000 - PC3 - 16000 CL8

OCZ Vertex 2 - 120GB 2.5" SSD SATA II
Zalman ZM1000-HP, 1000W

-I decided on i7 2600K, because it's the most expensive lol.
-Do I have to change the cooling system, or could Corsair Cooling Hydro H70 be used on Sandy Bridge?
-In my opinion I had a sick motherboard, so which one could hold to it in a SB build?
-RAM, is it even compatible with Sandy Bridge and what should I choose instead? 6GB is needed.

2600k, Gigabyte ud7, ripjaws 1600mhz @6-8-6, Corsair ax850, Crucial c300 128gb ssd, rasa rx360 water cooling kit.

SB memory is dual channel, so if you need 6 gb's you're going to have to buy 8gb instead, which is harder to oc than 4.

It depends on the fans you have on it. With the same fans I bet the rx360 would give you a good 5 degrees over a rs360. It is really hard to estimate though, maybe it would only give you a degree or 2.

i5 2500k
-No Hyper Threading
-6MB L3 Cache
i7 2600k
-Hyper Threading
-8MB L3 Cache

Do you really need the extra 2mb L3 cache and hyperthreading? If you're just gaming, save the $100 and go with the i5.

You can use that, so long as there are 1156 / 1155 brackets (same thing).

This is entirely based on personal preference and what features you want.

Generally speaking, yes, it would be. You'd need to step down to 4GB or 8GB to take advantage of dual channel.

The RX would perform better. 2600k is not needed for gaming, the HT doesn't help and sometimes even hinders fps; save yourself the money.

As Jonesey said, SB is dual so you will have to go for 4gb or 8gb. I also agree with the UD7.
