Rebuild or wait?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Heya guys,

I'm currently planning out my next build and I was very keen on building a mini itx build and turning my HAF 932 build into my new server.

But after looking into it I'd really like to pimp out the HAF and add some epic water cooling/new parts etc.

Soo what's your thoughts? Rebuild HAF 932 with a 6 core, new board, new cards, water cooling etc...

OR

Build mini itx build with watercooling etc..

OR

Wait for bulldozer before i rebuild..

I do kind of need to clean everything up, starting a new job with HP and i'll be working from home alot so i'd love to have this setup within the next two months or so...

Cheers guys!

There is nothing really that 'new' that really deserves buying. Sandy bridge is in the gutter until March or April, and by that time Bulldozer will be about a month from launch.

So like everyone else is doing, I would wait until Bulldozer.

I vote for waiting on Bulldozer as well. No need to make a new build at the moment with both Bulldozer and Ivy Bridge only a few months out.

You could rebuilt it to an x6 build...
but what you don't need:
1. new board (don't throw away that beast! It's awesome with x6)
2. water cooling (not worth it on most x6 chips unless you're pairing with an 1100T or 975 and going for suicide 1.65V runs!)

But above all I highly recommend waiting the 2 months only now for Bulldozer.
