Is this setup ok for overclocking ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi

Within my budget I was advised to get the following components to build my new PC

As I am new to the overclocking world, I heard that I can achieve 4.5 GHZ easily with the CPU but thought taking your advise here:

Also I need a suggestion for a not so expensive cooling device that will make the 4.5 GHZ CPU live well in the PC case

Here is the setup I am planning to get:

  • ASUS P8P67 Pro Intel P67 Motherboard - ATX, Socket H2 (LGA 1155), Intel P67 Express, 2200MHz DDR3 (O.C.), Gigabit LAN, 8-Channel Audio, SATA 6.0 Gb/s, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, SLI/CrossFireX, Bluetooth
  • Intel Core i7-2600K BX80623I72600K Unlocked Processor - Quad Core, 8MB L3 Cache, 3.40 GHz, Socket H2 (LGA1155), Retail
  • EVGA 01G-P3-1450-TR GeForce GTS 450 FPB Video Card - 1024MB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, Dual DVI, Mini HDMI, SLI, DirectX 11, Fermi, FREE Performance Boost Overclock to 822MHz
  • Seagate ST31000520AS Barracuda LP Hard Drive - 1TB, 5900rpm, 32MB, SATA-3G
  • Sony Optiarc AD-7260S-0B 24x DVDRW Drive - 24x, S-ATA, Black, OEM
  • Cooler Master RC-932-KKA3-GP HAF 932 Full Tower Case and Pre-installed eXtreme 700W Power Supply
  • Patriot PXD38G1600LLK Viper Xtreme Performance Desktop Memory Kit - 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-12800, DDR3-1600MHz, 8-9-8-24 CAS Latency, XPM Ready
[/SIZE]

Thanks!

you should be able to achieve 4GHz using a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ and it's great for it's price. Dont think 4.5GHz tho.

I'd say if you want a better all around build, go with a 2500K, GTX 460, and a 7200rpm drive of a Western Digital or Samsung variety - and maybe go with only 4GB memory. That would be much faster, though it would seem that your going pre-built?

Yeah, to hit 4.5GHz+ you'll need a beefy air cooler if it is in fact air that you're going to go with. The higher end (read: Magellan, Noctua, Silver Arrow) are in the $60-$80 range.

Thanks for the tips

Regarding air flow, ummm I do not have much space where the machine will be placed so I fear some overheating...

the 4.5 GHZ was achieved I remeber by reviewers of the 2600K CPU. the 2500K was thought to be ok but not as performing as the 2600K

And I did not uderstand why the 8 Gig RAM is slower that the 4Gigs?

All in all I need this machine for my MS Flight Simulator X, the simulator graphic engine needs massive CPU

Thanks again

So if the PC will be in a squeezed space do you advise other than air cooling?

Air cooling in a cubby hole always results in horrible temperatures. Don't do it.

Load temps for me are 60*C under MAX intelburntest @ 3.1gb

Push/pull Hyper 212+ 2500k @ 4.5ghz 1.31vcore

if you don't want to do a full loop (which itself is hard in a confined space), get a Corsair H70 or H50. Roughly same performance (and honestly they'll match high end coolers if ylou slap some beefy fans on them) as big air coolers.
