Need New Build Suggestions

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello,
Let me start off by saying that I have not built a computer since 1997, and I was 13 at the time (can't remember what was in it), so I'm a little behind now

These are the parts I have obtained so far:
MoBo--Crosshair IV Formula ROG

CPU---AMD 1090t BE 3.2ghz

Case--NZXT Phantom "White" (w/all opt fans installed)

GPU---XFX 6950 HD ATI Radeon

I'm currently roadblocked trying to decide what type of Memory Module, PSU, and after market Heatsink to get. The computer will be used primarily for console game emulation, pc gaming, and 3d graphics design (Blender, 3D Studio Max, & AutoCAD). Due to the 3d Graphics, I do realize that I will possibly be needing a minimum of 8bg Memory. I'm also trying to decide if I should go with liquid cooling or air cooling. If I go liquid it will be the "Corsair H70". I'm very open to suggestions please, and budget is no issue. All parts are purchased 1 or 2 at a time each pay period.

Current ideas on Memory Modules:

Corsair Dominator 8gb (2x4gb) 1600mhz CAS 9

Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x4gb) 1600mhz CAS 9

Mushkin Enhanced Redline 4gb (2x2gb) 1600mhz CAS 6 (2 Sets)

I will OC later on, but will run stock for a while first. Just starting to dip my toes into the OC kiddy pool

Edit: Nevermind I see you already have some stuff.

I would get a S12II-520 for your PSU, or the M12II-520 if you want Modular. If you will crossfire in future then opt for either the Antec TPN-750 or XFX BE 750 (or the 650w versions).

I've already purchased the Phenom II x6 & the Crosshair IV Formula. I'm currently using an Athlon 5050e Dual Core on a pre-built HP. Runs dreamcast and most Gamecube games no prob with my GeForce 9400gt GPU. I should be pretty good with the AMD build

now I've heard the Corsair H50 has had a few joint issues where J joint will accidently disconnect from the contact base sometimes. Do you know id this is true? I'm guessing the same would happen with the H70 as well, considering their about the same except for the fan size. Also, I forgot to mention the with the fan installed on the side of the case, I can only fit in about a 150mm or so heatsink, 180mm w/o side fan.

that was actually the one I was thinking about. Saw it one day at Frys but couldn't remember the name for the life of me. Thanx.

Neither of those are all that great for a Thuban Build.

OP,
You had a good choice in the Mushkins, they aren't on the motherboards QVL, but I can assure you they work great with the board regardless.

the n520 is shorter and quieter, but the 212+ is a better cooler
they are about the same price after shipping
