Help with 1155 build, $1600 budget. - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have updated my first post with the new build in it.

So after some thinking and looking at the advice I think I'm going to get the C300 SSD since I'm not too concerned about write speeds. Getting an 8GB set of G.Skills 1600. Picking up the GA-H67A-UD3H-B3 as I've always gone with Gigabyte boards in the past and they never let me down.

After going though the link posted by triangle to figure out wattage, it gave me around 550w which seems kind of low even though I was adding more than I had to make sure there's room for future upgrades, but I didn't add overclocking since I don't know what Im going to have it at...so maybe my 700w PSU from this PC will be fine.

So I still have about $330 left in the budget and I think all I need is aftermarket heatsink and I can't seem to find a 1155 section on Newegg, or all they just the same fit as another socket?

Anyway, feel free to recommend anything else you think it needs or parts I should switch up. Although I'm pretty dead-set on ATI here so I don't need anymore 570 suggestions smile.gif

Thanks again guys.

Please do not buy that board, it is a H67 model. You will not be able to overclock your 2600k above x37 multiplier. Wait for a P67 motherboard to get in stock and buy that. Again, I am trying to save you from refunding later. Do not buy a H67 because they do not overlock CPUs above 37 or 38.

As of right now I have no idea what kind of clocks you can get off a x37 multiplier since I know nothing about OCing any processor from the last couple years so I don't know if its really that bad. All the P67 boards are sold out currently and I'll be ordering on Monday so maybe I'll go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130571 if they have it in. Otherwise I'd rather not wait because everyone knows you'll be waiting forever when the part comes in, then its only 1 week until the next part comes in etc.

You should look at G.Skill's ECO series RAM instead, as they have the same speeds and latencies as the other sets - but the kicker is they do it on 1.35v.

Also, you might consider a 2GB HD6950. I believe they unlock to 6970's, though I could be wrong

The 'bclk' on sandy bridge is 100mhz and there isn't very much room to play with that, so the only feasible way to OC the CPU is to use the multiplier. With that math, a x37 multiplier would equal 3.7GHz - when the chip is known to do 5GHz, 3.7GHz isn't very impressive.. hence, the reason for the P67 chipset, instead of the H67.

EDIT: Also, the LGA1155 socket uses the same HSF mounting as the LGA 1156 socket. So in essence, you have a choice of almost any CPU cooler on Newegg. If you're going to be tearing apart the rig you have now, you could even reuse your Hyper 212+ and still get a very decent OC off of it - you could even get a new set of fans for it, to make it even better (you can mount 2 120mm fans on it).

About the 6950, I think it has to be a 1st Rev. card to do that, not sure if they're even rare or not but I'd rather stick with what I know is a 6970 and also not worrying about bricking anything.

That is pretty terrible, I guess I will wait until I find a P67 board then:(

That's great news! Now I got to go dig it up since I don't have it on this system at the moment since it was so tall my side panel wouldn't fit on the case.

Still a good amount of budget left over...maybe I can get 16GB RAM but I probably wouldn't even notice the difference. Or another SSD and RAID 0 them...or save the money, but that's no fun.

See if you can catch a ASUS Maximus IV board (when they restock) and a nice new case to match the board

It never hurts to have too good a motherboard, especially if you have the dough.

Most definitely get a p67, not h67 board if you want to do any overclocking.
