New 955BE Build, Need Help Please - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Also think you may need to rethink the cpu cooling esp if you are gaming and going to OC to 3.6 I first had a similar cooler to the one youve shown and it was pants and is sitting doing nothing in kitchen cupboard...H50 was the only thing to get my temps down with the 955 at 3.6 to 31 idle 44 stressed.......

is this ok? this has the 8+1 phase too, i'd just rather get everything from scan, might make shipping a little cheaper =]

this instead of the powercool.

and is the hyper 212+ really not that good, i thought everyone said it was well worth it. and i couldnt find any cl7 ram that was around that price, could you provide a link if possible?

The smps is fine, take this ram --- http://www.scan.co.uk/products/4gb-%...-7-8-7-20-165v

The mobo you selected is of chipset 870g.... you should take the 880g model if possible. Full name is "ASUS M4A88TD-V-EVO/USB3". Its not available in the website. You should check other sites that you prefer. Or you can even go to a store to pick it up. Thats the way we have to do it around here, the online stores in India are basically a bunch of thieves.

With a cl7 memory, you will have the freedom to push the ram OCwise without worrying too much about increasing the latencies.

870<880<890 not a big diff but u wont bottle neck urself plus u can get some nice 890fx for cheap now. plus ur cooling is perfectly fine considering ur doing a mild o/c not a massive one if u was to go near the 4k range then u would need to go water and in that case rasa rs 240 would be ur best bet not a h50 or h70

The difference is mainly in OCing capacity and the 880g also sports a vrm heatsink, which is very important.
880g also has an onboard video chip that 870g doesnt have. I feel that its is something everyone should have in case of troubleshooting/emergency purposes. But if you feel that you wont be needing that, and you wont OC much.... then by all means go for the 870g model. Its even cheaper, so with some extra cash, you can pick up an aftermarket heatsink.

alright i have decided to get my ram from overclockers.co.uk since they have some decent prices

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=8&subcat=1517

how is this for ram and...

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...03&subcat=1782

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-...sata-3gb-s-atx

which one out of these two, crossfire would be nice, but i'm not too fussed, it's not in plans at the moment. Is the 88td-v evo worth the price difference?

Ram is fine.
As for mobo, If you want to crossfire then go with the 790x ( pci-e: one x16 or dual x8 link ). Even better, get a 790fx mobo, price is higher but you will get better crossfire scaling and overclocks verry well.
asus 890fx :http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/asus-...6gb-s-raid-atx
msi 890fx : http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/msi-8...-sata-raid-atx

now you have to decide for yourself. If you want to use crossfire, buy any of these two mobos ( i prefer asus one). and if you are sure that you would rather stick with one powerful graphics card, then definitely get the 88tdv evo/usb3.
