New Build- *Arctic Assault*

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


Got my income tax done so it's time to blow it all on a new rig.
Currently upgrading from a Athlon X2 5000+, HD 3850, 2gb DDR2 800.
I'm leaving the case out because it's a surprise.
*hint- has to do with the name*
I already purchased an AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE, a Coolermaster Hyper 212+, and an HD 6850. (Well kind of. Had 2 of them DOA so refunded and getting different brand.) Keeping my G-15 and MS Sidewinder X5.
Here is my parts list so far. (Will be ordered this Friday.)

Mother Board- Asus Crosshair IV Formula
RAM- 2x G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 (total 8GB)
Graphics- 2x XFX HD 6850(Crossfire)
PSU- NZXT Hale 750W
*another hint to the case- same brand as PSU and same colors*
Storage-
BOOT- OCZ Vertex 2 80GB
HD MEDIA- Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB
NON-HD MEDIA (pron hehe)- Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
PROGRAMS/ DOCS- Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB (already own)
Monitor(s)- 3x Acer 23"(trip. mon. setup/ eyefinity)
Fans-
2x Xigmatek 140mm
2x Xigmatek 120mm
4x Rosewill 120mm PWM
(kinda iffy about the Rosewill fans. but we'll see)
Fan Controller- Sunbeam Rheosmart 6 fan controller
Misc.-
D-Link Router
TP-Link Ethernet switch
Cannon Pixma printer
Some ModRight single sleeve extensions. Sleeving for Sata Data cables. Thumb screws. Etc. Etc.

My whole "theme" for this mod is mostly white, grey and black with a little bit of red in the interior. White LEDs. Side panel window cut to a larger size. Just small mods since I wont have a computer while this is being built.

If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them. I really looking forward to getting started on this build.

i can already guess by the psu that this will be a sexy phantom white build , all looks good except for SSD maybe , if you are getting such a fancy mobo with sata 3 and what not get a sata 3 SSD they wield much more perfomance gain then sata 2 , GL on ur build !

eh. I don't really care for the way the Phantom looks. I like everything to be symmetrical. But your kind of close.
Honestly I'm getting that SSD because it seems to be very mainstream. And since it will be my first SSD, I dont want anything that I'm going to have trouble with. I was also looking at this. But I honestly don't know if I could have anything less than 80GB. And that's still pushing it.
I will seriously take it into consideration though. Thanks for the advice.

/Edit- Also that Crucial SSD has a lot slower write times than the OCZ. And since i transfer a lot of files etc. I'd prefer the write speeds of the OCZ over the read speeds of the Crucial.

Have you gone for one of the camo'd Tempest EVOs? Those are awesome. They're always so much more expensive though...

Dead on! That IS the case I will be getting. Swapping out the blue LEDs with white ones. And Having red single sleeve on the inside.
I've always loved camo so that case is perfect.

And it's not too bad. Only $20.00 USD more than the all black.
